Question: I have had injections in the past to plump my lips temporarily. What procedure can make my lips permanently plump?
Answer: Now there are several procedures that can permanently plump lips but at this point in time I personally prefer the fillers as they are easily customizable, very natural appearing, and overall give patients exactly what they desire. Other options, however, are a lip lift which can be performed through small incision up underneath the nose, a vermillion advancement which leaves a scar right along the lip line between the skin of the upper lip and the lip itself or even permanent lip implants which can be soft silicone that is passed underneath the tissue to permanently enhance the lip. These all have drawbacks when compared to injectable fillers but the upside of these other techniques are that they are considered permanent.
