Question: I have incredibly thin lips and would like to make them look fuller and sexier and I’d like this to be a permanent change. Can I get a one-time fat transfer instead of having repeat injectables?
Answer: Fat has been injected into the lips to provide augmentation. Some surgeons question whether or not injected fat will stay in the lip for a long term. Some surgeons claim that after time the fat injected in the lip decreases in size and the change in the lip may be more due to swelling or scarring. However, other surgeons who favor fat injections claim that the fat will stay in the lip long term and will be a permanent solution. It is best to consult with an experienced surgeon in determining which technique will be best to change your lips.
