Question: I have very thin top and bottom lips and want to have fuller lips. I would prefer a more permanent surgical technique for lip reshaping over collagen injections. I’ve heard that the collagen can cause your lips to be misshapen. Is there a better chance of success, that is great looking lips, with the surgery or the collagen?
Answer: The type of procedure used is not determined based on whether or not the procedure will be successful or whether or not the lips will be misshapen. The most important factor is having an experienced facial plastic surgeon to understand the anatomical properties of the lip and how to rejuvenate the lips to create a natural appearance and, just as important, a natural feel of the lips. This can be done with either injectable materials or some surgical techniques. The best option to determine what will allow you to achieve your aesthetic goals is to consult with an experienced facial plastic surgeon that has interest in lip rejuvenation in Toronto.
