Which procedure should I undergo to get fuller lips? (Photo)

Thanks for posting your question and for your photo's.
There are a few options, non surgical and surgical.
Lip fillers provide an effective temporary solution to help volumize your lips. Dermal filler injections add volume to the lips and typically last around 4-6 months. In some cases duration of the effects can be a bit shorter or longer. Do you have an event or special occasion that you want to look extra special for? Then Lip Fillers can leave you with the perfect pout in less than 15 minutes! It really is that simple.
Permalip™ are revolutionary lip implants that are designed to look and feel natural, yet enhance your lip volume to your desired size. 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.
Have a good think and do your research.
Nonsurgical Lip Augmentation With Fillers Can Yield Natural-Looking Fuller Lips
In frontal view, ideally the upper lip should comprise one-third the total volume of the entire two lips together. In profile view, the upper lip should extend about 1-2mm out beyond that of the lower lip and the latter should have a slight downward pout.
In experienced hands, fuller, but natural-appearing lips can be achieved. So, be sure to seek consultation and treatment by a board certified aesthetic physician and ask to see his/her before and after photos before proceeding.

My second option after that would be to do a fat transfer to the lips. This can be done under local numbing medication by suctioning a small but generous area to take the donated fat from then inject it into the lips. This procedure is the hardest to reverse as it might call for some removal of the fat cells that were placed.
My third option to you would be to have implants placed. This can also be done under local numbing medication and it takes about 30 minutes to complete the procedure. Many of my staff have opted for this option as they no longer have to use as much dermal filler as they used to, if any at all, and it is easily reversible. If you do not like the look or the size of the implant it can easily be removed or replaced with a different size. My patients almost always come back every 8 months or so to have their ventricle columns injected and their cupids bow to give them a more natural, but voluptuous look.
Please visit an American Society of Board Certified Plastic Surgeons member who does the procedure by his or herself or has their RN injecting. This will ensure you the best results and the best care. If you are offered to have silicone injected into your lips stay away from this as well. The complications and appearance afterwards are not worth your time, health or money.
