No one wants to have an overdone, obvious, or duck-like appearance after lip augmentation. There are several methods used for augmenting or increasing the fullness and projection of the lips that avoid these tell-tale signs of cosmetic enhancement.

These range from the simple injection of products such as Restylane, Juvederm, or Perlane in the office setting, to the insertion of a permanent lip implant. For most patients, Dr. Alsarraf prefers the use of the injectable fillers such as Restylane, because the results are excellent without looking overdone or obvious.

Lip augmentation takes only a few minutes to perform in either the office or the out-patient hospital setting, depending on the procedure that is chosen.
