Lip Augmentation Vancouver
This can be performed several different ways. Fillers such as Juvederm or fat can be used to provide a fuller more youthful look. It is essential to perform the injection in a way which looks balanced, rather than a “sausage look”. Dr. Brown often prefers to use Alloderm, a skin derivative without antigens, which can be shaped and inset into the lip through a small slit on each side. Sutures are removed at 4-5 days.
