Personally and professionally, I do not care for lip implants. They look unnatural and are often poorly done. The lips have a delicately structured anatomy and I don't recommend surgery on them unless it is to correct a malfunction or defect.
The latest, greatest lip filler, in my opinion, is Juvederm's Volbella. As with all of my favorite lip augmenters, it is composed of hyaluronic acid, which is a substance found naturally in our bodies as a skin moisturizer. Volbella has a thin, smooth, honey-like consistency that makes it very easy to work with. Volbella creates an extremely natural-looking volume and shape to the lips. It contains lidocaine to ease the discomfort of the injections. It also utilizes a cross-linked matrix called Vycross that stimulates the production of collagen and helps the product last for up to 18 months in most patients. Please find a board-certified dermatologist to help you with your lip injections for the most pleasing and natural results.
