Lip Surgery

People often seek correction of lips that are too thick, too thin or asymmetrical. Some women seek plump lips with pout, according to the latest trends.

» Thin lips
Temporary and permanent methods are available for enlarging the thin lips.

Fillers: A natural or synthetic biocompatible filler, or the patient's own fat, is injected or implanted in the lips. One injection is usually sufficient to produce the desired result, which may be temporary, depending on the material used. Filler can be injected into the lip under local anaesthesia.

Implants: Synthetic or natural implants like dermis of fascia from patient's own body can be inserted into the lips through cuts inside the mouth.
