Can a person with very thin lips get big lips(like angelina jolie) through injections or can that only happen through lip surgery?
Can I Get Big Lips Through Injections?

Big Lips Through Injections.
Injecting your lips with restylane or juvederm can enlarge them a lot but should be done in 3 sessions at 1 week apart using about 2-3 syringes of material @ $550/syringe and may last 6-9 months. Permanent lip implants tend to do better and are permanent for $1500-2000 per lip. Sincerely,
A natural looking lip is more important than big lips
Lip augmentation can certainly help improve the appearance of the lips. This can be accomplished with fillers. As for Angelina Jolie lips, it really depends upon your anatomy.

Angelina Jolie Lips Are Not For Everyone
If you have very thin lips, plumping them with hyaluronic-acid based filler such as Juvederm and Restylane Silk will add volume and shape, while still maintaining balance and harmony in your face. Trying to superimpose someone else's lips on your face could be disastrous. Physically, it can be accomplished through lip implants or by over-injecting with fillers, but it is not recommended. Instead, meet with a board-certified dermatologist to discuss your ideal lips, and work together to find a shape and volume that gives you the fullness you want while still looking natural and beautiful on your face.
It's definitely possible to get full lips through lip injections - however it's difficult to tell you what is realistically possible and safe without seeing you. I'd recommend seeing an experienced surgeon who can tell you the risks, benefits, and alternatives of filler vs. surgery.

How big is realistic with lip injections?
The short answer to your question is that you can get bigger lips then you currently have. Angelina Jolie has very large lips which are from being genetically blessed. Some of the worst results I have ever seen that make women look like puffer fish have been from trying to re-create those type of lips from thin lips. There is a limit to how much can actually be put in either with injection or surgery and still look natural. Discuss this with a Board Certified plastic surgeon who is experienced in lip augmentation. You may not be able to get exactly what you want but you should be able to achieve a look you are happy with.
Fat Transfer for Lip Augmentation
Yes, you can get beautiful plump lips via injections. Fat Transfer- (injecting fat to add volume to the the lips) is a wonderful way to achieve the lips you are looking for. Artificial fillers like Juvederm or Restylane can be used, but provide only temporary enhancement. Fat transfer allows a more permanent enhancement, while also maintaining the soft and supple feel of natural lips. Fat transfer for lip augmentation is a minimally invasive procedure which can be accomplished under local anesthesia in about one half hour. Good Luck, Dr. Corrado
Lip enhancement can enhance YOUR LIPS, can not give you some one else lips.
Lip enhancement can be done with hyaluronic acid or fat injections. Consult your BOARD CERTIFIED PLASTIC SURGEON. AND HAVE REALISTIC EXPECTATIONS
Creating beautiful lips
Lips can be enhanced significantly with fillers such as Juvederm. They are quite effective and excellent and improving the lips appearance. However, realistic goals should be maintained as even with filler certain lips based on shape and appearance will never look like celebrities such as Angelie Jolie.
