Natural fuller lips
1) Use a temporary filler like Juvederm products and get a nice result for 3-6 months before needing to do it again.
2) Do a dermal -fat graft procedure I invented and popularized over twenty years ago. The advantages here is that the dermal-fat graft is essentially permanent and is your own tissue taken from the supra pubic area. There will be a small 2 inch scar just above the hairline and the swelling lasts about two weeks. However it is the only permanent method to get filler lips that will use your own tissue and look natural.
All silicone products whether they are injections or material insertions are either illegal or will create problems over the long run. I know, I have removed dozens of then over the years. Plain fat removed by suction and injected in the lips also tends to either disappear or get a bit lumpy. .
I invented the dermal-fat graft procedure over twenty years ago to get permanent fuller lips with a patients own natural tissue for those who do not mind the suprapubic scar and are tired of fillers.
If you do desire we can go the filler route and as always this must be done by a surgeon with experience, and a good eye, to get a nice yet natural looking result.
If you choose to shorten your lip be sure to do the incision under the nose as any incision around the margin of the lips looks TERRIBLE no matter how good the surgeon sews the closure
Natural Looking Lips
The best way to tell which filler to chose for a natural lip line is an in person consultation. I always start with the least amount of product since you can always add more. If you are happy with the look you can always go for a more permanent solution. Best, Dr. Green
