What is the best technique for Lip augmentation?
Doctor Answers 10
Juvederm over fat
Juvederm or Permalip
Thank you for your question. It may be worth your while getting some Juvederm put in first as this will give you an immediate result with little cost, and give you a good idea of what shape and fullness you want.
If you then like this look - you can go permanent with Permalip. It does not deflate, degrade or rupture over time. Although it’s permanent, it is designed for the ease of placement if a patient wishes to achieve a larger or smaller enhancement or even return to the lips original appearance. It does not limit lip movement and provides a natural look.
Do your homework and then perhaps you will be more able to know what you want. Fat transfer is a good option and is very natural looking.
Non-surgical and surgical lip enhancement cosmetic procedures are carried out as a day case under local anaesthetic. There will be some swelling post procedure that subsides very quickly. Our plastic surgeons will advise you on what best suits you and will help you achieve the exact look that you are after

Lip augmentation with fat transfer is long lasting, but requires a minimally invasive surgical procedure and prolonged downtime. Additionally, it is difficult to achieve a perfect desired result since fat reabsorption can't be controlled by the plastic surgeon.
Lip augmentation with lip implants is also long lasting, but like with fat transfer, it requires an small surgical procedure with long down time. One of the main risks of the procedure is implant extrusion.
Lip augmentation with fillers based on HA ( hyaluronic acid) like Juvederm, Restylane, Belotero, etc, can be done in the office setting in a walk-in base, does not require surgery, it last for about one (1) year and allows the plastic surgeon to achieve precise lip augmentation. Additionally, it could be reversed 100% with an enzyme injection.
In my practice I recommend lip augmentation with HA as the best technique for lip augmentation because the above reasons. Not always what is long lasting is the best for the patient.
I love fillers such as Restylane and Juvederm for the lips much more than fat transfer. If you have the proper injections no one should know that you had them done and they will have a beautiful result. Best, Dr. Green
