Abstract

Permanent augmentation of lip volume can be achieved either with autologous or nonautologous implants. The constant risk of infectious complications remains the disadvantage of nonautologous implants. Likewise, autologous implants of dermis, fat, or fascia are prone to reabsorption and require an additional donor incision. In several patients undergoing revisional aesthetic breast augmentation, grafts of scar capsule were utilized for lip augmentation. Results at 10 months demonstrate persistent volume enhancement.
