Lip enhancement can be done with injections or implants. A numbing cream is usually applied to the lip to minimize discomfort, but patients often experience some soreness. Restylane and Juvederm are two of the most commonly used fillers to enhance the lips softly and naturally. Fat can also be taken from your own tummy or hips and injected to the lips, but this is less common in our practice.
