There are a number of reasons that people seek to improve the appearance of their lips. For many, fuller, plumper lips improve self-confidence and/or self-esteem. Lip Enhancement may also reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles around the mouth, reversing the signs of aging. Lip Augmentation is typically performed with injections or surgery, however, injectable dermal fillers are the most commonly used method.

Lip Augmentation / Lip Enhancement Procedure
