Celebrity Lips and Augmentation
Since you have full lips the best advice is to consult with a board certified dermatologist to discuss how full you would like your lips. From the photos posted I would probably recommend Juvederm since it would give you the fullness that you are looking for. Best, Dr. Green
Lip Augmentation Options
Most augment their lips with injectable fillers, which are repeated about once a year or even more often. Although lip augmentation with fillers is an ideal procedure for adding volume to thin lips, it is not permanent.For a more permanent solution there are several options. These options include fat injections, direct lip lift, sub-nasal lip lift and corner lip lift. An excellent technique for lip augmentation is fat injections. It offers the only natural method for potential permanent results. Fat is aspirated from another part of the body, such as the abdomen, and then injected into the lips. Since fat cells are living tissue, the body will recognize them and new capillaries will attach to the cells to keep them permanently alive. Since the fat cells are from the patient’s own body, they are not recognized as foreign and will not cause an allergic reaction. The fat transfer technique may require two to three treatments to achieve a permanent result as the body absorbs much of the injected fat.

I want fuller lips but I am already fairly full. What options do I have?
Thanks for your question.
When you already have fairly full lips, a judicious use of hyaluronic acid filler to highlight and shape your lips more by making good use of the volume there already, would be my recommendation.
A full understanding of facial volumes and facial harmony is necessary in a top injector. Do your homework and find someone who you feel understands your goals.

If you wish to obtain fuller and more voluminous lips, hyaluronic acid fillers such as Juvederm and Restylane are great! They typically last 9 - 12 months if not longer on some patients. Lip Lift surgery is an option as well. You should consult with a board certified plastic surgeon to determine what options are best suited for you. Please see link for more information
