Full lips are sought after by most women, as they are a sign of youth and desirability. If you do not come by full lips naturally then lip augmentation might be a solution to your less defined lip problem. When a patient opts for injectable filler the procedure will be done on an outpatient basis and it will be done under local anesthesia. The local anesthetic (or pain killer) may be topical (as in applied directly to the skin), it may be injected before the start of the procedure or it may be injected with the filler.
There are many different types of injectable fillers, cosmetic fillers or tautologous fat filler that can be used for the lips. Some of the most common injections include Restylane, Juvaderm, Esthelis, Fortelis, Radiasse, and Aquamed. The effects last from 6 months to 2 years depending on the type of filler used. Autologous Fat filler is the most permanent type of filler which uses your own body fat.
