Everyone knows that attractive lips are the cherry on top of a gleaming smile; but for many people, an invisible set of lips is no laughing matter. Lip augmentation has been a popular solution for several years; however, it’s worth noting that today’s methods of lip augmentation are safer and more effective than ever.

- Fat transfers
Fat transfer lip injections are growing in popularity by leaps and bounds. This is likely because patients report a longer-lasting result. The remaining methods continue to be safe and effective, though, with results that last anywhere from three to eight months (depending on which product is used).
Surgical Lip Augmentation: A Lip Lift
Aging brings about changes for nearly every part of the face – and the lips are no exception. The upper lip can lengthen and sag, while the vermilion thins out and takes on a "set" look. Meanwhile, corners can droop and attractive lip curves can fade into the background.
A surgical procedure known as a lip lift can reverse these effects. This effective procedure allows the upper teeth to show again and restores the natural, striking features that people immediately notice. The discreet, virtually invisible scar lies in the shadow crease between the nostril sill.
