Question : Do you ever use solid implants like Advanta or Gore-Tex in the lips for lip enhancement?
Answer : I think the general trend now is to move away from solid implants in the lip. Injectable fillers now are so good, in my opinion, that they make a very strong case for being used. Also, the advantage of the fillers is sometimes there are patients who state that they have some event and they want to have their lips plumped up for this event. They can then have a little more filler to get them ready for this event, but in the future if they want a little different look and shape, they can let the lip change into that other shape.
