I love the look of Angelina Jolie’s lips and would like to plump mine up. What are my options?
If you want to do simple injections, you can do injections with Juvederm or another material but that will be temporary. If you want to do something that will give you lips that will be permanent, you need to do a dermal fat graft which is an operation that I invented which takes your own skin and fat from the lower abdomen and grafts it into the lips but would give you permanent large lips like Angelina Jolie. It is an excellent procedure with a really, really nice result and, again, the big thing is it tends to be permanent.
