Lip enhancement is an increasingly popular aesthetic procedure. The enhancement or augmentation of the lips is achieved by injecting either the patient's own fat which is harvested from e.g. the abdomen by means of a syringe or synthetic materials such as Restylane or Perlane which lasts approximately nine to twelve months or Dermalive which is semi-permanent.

The procedures are performed under local anaesthesia in the doctor's office. The material is injected in small amounts under direct vision to achieve the desired result.
