What is lip augment?
Lip augment can be divided into two categories- surgical and non-surgical procedures. Surgical procedure involves inserting small artificial implants into the lips. In some cases, a person’s own tissues are also inserted into the lips through tiny incisions made in the lips. Fat grafting or fat transfer is yet another surgical lip augment procedure. The procedure involves taking your own body fat and inserting it into your lips to make them look fuller and youthful. Surgical lip augmentation is performed under local anaesthesia. Depending on the type of material used, and the complexity of the procedure, lip augmentation surgery may last for 2-3 hours after which the patient is allowed to go back home.
Non-surgical lip enhancement includes inserting lip fillers into the lips for increasing their size or changing their shape. There are many different types of fillers that are used for lip augmentation, such as Restylane, Juvederm, Radiesse, Hyaluronic acid fillers, and Collagen fillers. Injectable Dermal fillers for lip enhancement are popular than surgical lip augmentation because they are safer, have minimum risks and complications, and the recovery and downtime period is also fast.

One needs to get the fillers again if one wants to continue enjoying full and enhanced lips.
