Can you describe the pros and cons of lip augmentation with implants vs. fillers?
I have pretty much stopped using permanent implants in the lips. I was enthusiastic about Advanta when it first came out 10 years ago. Like other implants in this very mobile area, it turned out to be prone to extrusion and shrinkage. Fillers are temporary but can give a more natural appearance. The amount place is also more customized to the patient. They usually last a year or so. Complications are rare and the affects are reversible.
