Often, full, round lips are considered a sign of youth and good health. Whether you were born with thin lips or are dissatisfied with the effect of age on your lips, you can choose a lip enhancement procedure to achieve your desired appearance.
A lip enhancement procedure:
- May include many options, ranging from surgical implants to minimally invasive injections of natural fat or filler, depending on the desired appearance and duration
- Helps produce more youthful, fuller lips
Candidates for this procedure are healthy, non-smoking adults who do not have a life-threatening illness or medical condition that may interfere with healing.
For nonsurgical treatment, the recovery time is minimal. Some swelling or bruising may occur, but will subside over time. Full recovery typically takes four to six weeks.
