Lip augmentation and lip lifts
If you want cosmetic lip enhancement, you’ll want the most careful surgeon you can find to do the job. There are several ways this can be done. If you want them just a little fuller, this can be done with an injectable filler. This is a fairly minor surgery. A more radical reshaping can be achieved through a dermal allograft, which means transplanting donated skin collagen into your lips. If you get a dermal allograft, it will be several days before you are ready to return to work, but the collagen will naturally become a part of your own tissue.
If the upper lip is too long, the surgeon may recommend a lip lift. This is usually done in the surgeon’s office rather than an operating room, and involves minimal sedation. There is some swelling and bruising, but not much. Don’t put makeup on until the sutures have been taken out. This should only take five or six days.
