Question : What are the risks of lip implants vs. fillers?
Answer : A lip implant is a solid material that is placed in the lip. Fillers are injectable materials. With the implants, they can move because they are solid and the lip moves around. They can also extrude or come out and cause some redness and pain. However, with the most of the lip implants, this is not common. With the filler, the result may not be permanent and there will need to be repeat procedures. With any material that is placed in the lip, there is a small risk of infection or complications.
