Is there a permanent way to make upper lip bigger?
Hi, I have performed many lip augmentation procedures using dermal fillers or lip implants for over 30 years. From the photos, your upper lip is quite small compared to your lower. Following the beauty principles outlined in my book on face and body beauty, the upper lip should be approximately 75 % the size of the lower lip for the lips to appear balanced. The upper lip can be augmented using a dermal filler or a Permalip implant.
Dermal filers and lip implants offer far more reliable volume to augment the lips than permanent fillers or fat injections that are also associated with increased, unwanted, side effects. To get the desired effect, you'd have to have a 4mm permalip implant placed and then after 6 to 12 months have this replaced with a 5mm implant which is the largest size made. The 6-12 months allows the upper lip to stretch and accommodate the implant thus decreasing potential side effects.
Hope this helps.

Thank you for asking about your lip augmentation.
To get the look you show in the photos, you need a central lip lift and Permalip implants. Even with that, the fullness may need enhancement with fillers since it is quite a significant change from your present lip shape and volume.
