Lip augmentation procedures increase the size of the lips. The upper or lower lip may be treated alone, or both upper and lower lips may enlarged at the same time. Lip augmentation can be achieved by injecting or surgically implanting materials into the lips. Some procedures are temporary, others are permanent.
Lip enhancement usually focuses on augmenting the lips. This restores or further accentuates youthful appearing lip proportions. Age-related lip flattening, thinning, and loss of border definition, especially along the central "Cupid's bow" area of the upper lip, is very effectively and safely reversed by increasing the amount of show of the red lip and by redefining the delicate curvature of the border of the lips through methods that restore lip volume.
