Best options for lip augmentation
For patients interested in fuller, more pronounced lips, I would recommend hyaluronic acid (HA) fillers such as Juvederm or Restylane. I usually perform this in the office under local anesthesia. The length of time these fillers last is variable, roughly 6-8 months. These fillers really have minimal side effects and your surgeon can fine tune the result to the look you want. The result is usually immediate, but as the hyaluronic acid pulls in water, you can detect a slightly fuller look over the next 3-4 days. If you don't like the result, you have a day or so to massage the HA and dissipate the result. If massaging does not't get rid of the HA, there is an enzyme called hyaluronidase that can be injected by your surgeon to break down and dissolve the HA. Patients who desire a more permanent lip augmentation can have autologous fat grafting. Despite the fact that only about 40-50% percent of the fat is retained after 6 months, the 50% that stays is permanent. You may need several injections to get the permanent lip augmentation look you want. I have also used Alloderm in the lips with good long-term results. If you are interested in lip augmentation, I would always recommend a patient use a temporary filler like Restylane before using something more permanent to ensure the patient likes the appearance of fuller lips.
What is the best filler to enhance my lips?
Lip augmentation is one of my favorite procedures as it can give the face a very youthful and appealing appearance. There is no one filler that is best for everyone, but that also means there are options to help everyone achieve their specific desired goals for their lips. Lip fillers last anywhere from 6 months to two years depending on the specific product used.
There is a full range of desires when it comes to lip augmentation. Often when patients come in for the first time they are often worried of looking “over done” or having the dreaded “duck lips.” However just like a breast augmentation, if patients could change anything after their lip augmentation they wish they would have gone bigger!
Lip augmentation is an art as you can mold and shape the lips. The perfect lip augmentation is about giving the lips a natural, sexy appearance. Just making the lips bigger is not beautiful. Enhancing the size while creating a shape makes the face look more youthful. Lip augmentation can create a cupid’s bow and improve the overall shape of the lips.
Restylane Refyne and Restylane Silk are both great products for patients that want a subtle augmentation to their lips. The Refyne is a new product that last up to a year giving patients a lasting result.
Juvederm Ultra Plus and Restylane and the workhorse products for fillers as they have been around for years and patients tend to love them. They last about a 6-months in the lips.
Resylane Defyne and Juvederm Vollure both last about up to a year. Both of these products will give patients a little more volume and fullness to their lips. The Vollure and Defyne will also last up to a year giving patients a lasting results the will love for their lip enhancements.
Juvederm Volluma is the longest lasting product on the market and lasts up to two years. It is typically used for a mid-face lift. However, in patients that want a full luscious appearance to their lips this can be an incredible option.
Lip enhancement can be done as a simple procedure in the office. Patients come to the office have numbing cream applied to their lips. I give them about 15 to 20 min to let the cream take affect and then the actual process of the lip injections takes about ten minutes.
Patients can return to work or their daily life immediately after the simple office procedure is completed.
Please consult with your board-certified plastic surgeon about your lip augmentation options.

Thank you for your question. In my opinion, hyaluronic acid work very well for lip augmentation. In my practice I use Juvederm Volbella which is a hyaluronic acid product that can last up to 9 months. It is very smooth and produce natural results.
I hope this helps. Best wishes! (Dr. Salameh, Plastic Surgeon, Bowling Green, KY)

Prevelle Silk: The First Hyaluronic Acid Filler with Anesthetic in the US
I have been fortunate to use Prevelle Silk hyaluronic acid filler with lidocaine on a few of my patients. It is the first FDA approved hyaluronic acid filler available in the United States. The word "silk" aptly describes the product as it flows and fills very smoothly.
It is too early for me to judge how long it will last, but if it lasts as long or longer than Restylane and Juvederm, this "new kid on the block" will rapidly become the most popular hyaluronic acid filler.
Patients have been very pleased with the comfort of injection, and I appreciate not having to use dental blocks to fill the lips.

I prefer the hyaluronic acid fillers like Restylane or Juvederm Ultra for lip enhancement. I think they provide a soft, aesthetically pleasing lip augmentation.
Although this is an off-label use of these products, it is becoming more and more common. The benefit is that the HA fillers fade away with time, and do not cause as much tissue distortion of the lips as some of the permanent lip implants like Gore-Tex or silicone do.
