One common female trait is to have full, plump lips. In contrast to men, women generally have a more full-bodied vermillion—the red, fleshy band of the lips, and a fuller vermillion border—the fine-lined edge between the edge of the lips and the skin.
Dr. Bensimon addresses this issue with Juvederm or Restylane, and could be conducted while awake. Alternatively, fat from the thighs or abdomen could be harvested and injected into the lips. This method must be performed under general anesthetic and is best combined with another procedure. In some cases a second injection may be required.
