|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.
