Thin poorly defined lips may be hereditary or the result of ageing, fuller, plumper lips can be achieved by a variety of lip augmentation techniques. The simplest technique for lip augmentation is injection with natural and synthetic materials such as hyaluronic acid. These can be done in the office usually under local anesthesia.
Surgical methods of lip augmentation offer yet another alternative. Fat injections and dermal (deep layer skin) fat grafts are taken from your own body and transplanted to your lips.
