Question: I am interested in getting lip augmentation to plump up my lips. What are my options?
Answer: Your options are many, from topical applications of products that cause some irritation and plumping, though these are only mildly effective and can be irritating, to permanent lip augmentation with implants though these can shift and create problems in the future. I therefore recommend the most commonly used lip augmentation material, which are hyaluronic acid injections such as Restylane and Juvederm. These clear, soft gel products can be injected into the lips in a very customized way to create a luscious youthful lip and the product will last about 6 months, maybe longer in most people and really has very little to any risk of any sort of long-term complication.
