Fuller lips are a great addition to a younger looking face. However, choosing the right procedure or injectable filler requires an experienced plastic surgeon with an eye for detail.

The first thing I like to ask my patients is what is the look that they want to achieve. Then, we can have a discussion about lip lifts and lip injections. When considering filler injections, you should ask about how long the result will last, will touch-ups be likely, and which product is best for you. Since not all fillers are created equal, selecting the right one will give better and more lasting results.

Although many different filler products are available, your plastic surgeon should only use those which are FDA approved for use in the United States.
