Lip augmentation is utilized to make the lips more full and rounded. There are several materials available to augment the lips. Dr. Hargan utilizes Alloderm implants. Alloderm implants use the patients’ own tissue in order to provide a smooth, even and more natural feeling as a result. Two small incisions are placed just inside the border of the lip near the corners of the mouth. The material is then placed in the upper and/or lower lip and small stitches are placed that dissolve over time. Post-operatively swelling is expected over the first 2-3 days and some bruising is possible but not typical. There are no materials that offer a truly permanent augmentation.
