Lip augmentation is for those who wish to increase the fullness of their lips. It can be particularly effective for those who have lost volume in their lips over time. Filling in the lost volume can also help with those bothersome lines around the mouth.
Several options are available including Restylane, Collagen, and Alloderm. Both Restylane and Collagen are injectables. These are the better options for those who prefer a more short-term fix. Alloderm, on the other hand, is a freeze-dried piece of dermis that is actually pulled through the lip using very small cuts inside the edge of the lip. Recovery is a little longer but the great advantage of this is that it can last for years.
