What is the best lip augmentation procedure?

Nowadays, fuller lips are a must but there are so many types of lip augmentations that I cannot figure out which one gives the best results. I definitely need this procedure because I have very thin lips but I do not know which one to choose. In your opinion what is the best lip augmentation procedure?

Hi Britney13:


My favorite filler for lips is your own fat.  It almost always has to be done 2 or 3 times to get a permanent result but it looks better with each injection and looks very natural when done properly.

Hi britney13, 

I recommend a hyaluronic filler such as Restylane-L, which lasts around 6 months or Juvederm Ultra XC, which lasts around 1 year. The procedure is very simple and downtime is minimal. Possible side effects are some swelling and/or bruising that could last up to a week.
