What are some permanent options for Lip Augmentation?

Some permanent options forLip Augmentation (Or lip enhancement, lip filler, lip injectible, lip plumping, lip rejuvenation) exist including Lip Lifts, Mucosal advancements, Lip Grafts, Fat injections, and Permanent Lip Fillers.  Lip lifts include Buffalo Horn Lip Lift (gull wing lip lift, wavy under nose lip lift) which are under the nose that lift the upper lip and shorten the distance from the bottom of the nose to the upper lip. Corner of the lip lifts elevate the corners of the lips to reverse downturn lips. Mucosal advancments including V-Y advancements that can be horizontal, vertical, and double ones that do different things.  These advancements increase the red portion of the lips appearance in both the upper and lower lips. Lip grafts can be done with alloderm, goretex or other natural tissues from various parts of the body.  They can be used to increase the volume of the lips for a fuller more youthful look. Fat injections can be employed to volumize the lips, and increase the red portion of the lips with your own fat.  This is an option that can last for years.  Permanent lip fillers, like silicone, are another option but present a lot of risks. My opinion is that these permanent lip fillers are too risky.
