Patients who are concerned with the fullness of the lips and are not satisfied with minor correction with lip liner accents, may benefit from one of a number of techniques. These include collagen or fat injection, the patient’s own fascia or strips of human connective tissue. The different approaches depend on the specific needs and patient’s natural lip contour.
This is usually an in-office procedure. There will be swelling for up to 3 months, but most patients may return to social activities in 2 weeks.
