Any suggestions for Lip Augmentation?
Your upper lip can be enhanced with filler by elongating the vermillion border laterally on both sides. I would recommend restylane silk.
The best way to assess and give true advice would be an in-person exam.
Please see a board-certified plastic surgeon that specializes in aesthetic and restorative plastic surgery.
Best of luck!
Who ever told you there was nothing that could be done was absolutely wrong. You can inject synthetically manufactured injectables. For your needs I would recommend either "Restylane Silk" or "Juvederm". Swelling after the procedure will be typically a few days at most and the result will last 6 to 12 months before needing re-injection. The other option would be using your own natural fat transfer to your lips. There will be more swelling that will last longer immediately after the procedurebut the results will last for many years even decades.
Improving your lip appearance, in my opinion, would concentrate on restoring some up the upper lips lateral fullness and leaving the bottom lip just as it is. Often this is done with a filler such as Juvederm.
The overall shape of your lips is appealing however and I would balance the lips while avoiding making them too full.
