As we age our lips appear to thin out or almost `deflate`, losing the youthful, plump pout that we once had. The upper lip, in particular, is more prone to these signs of ageing. Both older women and men with thin lips often seek ways to make them larger and fuller. Although many younger women are also interested in having a fuller pout to their lips.
Lip augmentation, volumising, shaping or enhancement is a cosmetic procedure which uses various materials to plump out and re-shape the lips. Typically procedures available in clinics use injections of dermal fillers or a person’s own fat and lip implants made from natural or man-made products implanted during surgery.
