In brief: Lip enhancement

The best advice is to try one of the hyaluronic acid (gel-like substance found naturally in the skin) fillers, placed by a medical professional with experience in this procedure.
If you do not like this look, there is an immediate reversal agent that will dissolve the filler. If you do like the look, it will last approximately one year.

In brief: Various options

There are a number of ways to enhance the lips.
There are a variety of fda approved injectable fillers. Fat injection or transplants can be done. There are also permanent implants available although these should be used with caution.

Lip enlargement is best done to restore normal anatomy. My preferred treatment is with Juvederm, a hyaluronic acid filler that lasts about a year.

In brief: Restylane (dermal fillers)

Restylane (dermal fillers) is now fda approved for lip enhancement.
It is temporary and needs to be repeated every 4-6 months. Lip enhancement requires a fair amount of artistry to achieve a pleasing look, so it should only be performed by very experienced practitioners.

In brief: Lip injection

Most plastic surgeons and dermatologists prefer hyaluronic acid fillers for lip injection or augmentation.
Hyaluronic acid is a material already found within the skin and naturally enhances the lips. Both Restylane (dermal fillers) and juvederm are made of hyaluronic acid, which provides soft and natural results. Fat injection is another option, but typically requires more anesthesia and downtime.
