Sentinel Node Biopsy
A variety of techniques are now available for lip enhancement. The purpose of lip enhancement is to give the lips a fuller and therefore more youthful appearance.

Hyaluronic Acid therapy offers excellent immediate results. Injections are performed in the office and can be done during your lunch hour. However, ongoing treatment is necessary to maintain results. These generally last 3-6 months, although each individual re-absorbs the collagen at varying rates.

Permanent Enhancement is achieved by either using a lipodermal (skin and fat) graft from a non hair bearing part of the groin or fat transfer from the hips or abdomen, or “AlloDerm” Grafting.
