Alton Ingram MD – Keeping up With the Latest Trend: Lip Fillers

Alton Ingram MD explains that the process of enhancing lips via plastic surgery uses Collagen or Hyaluronic Acid (HA). One of these chemical combinations is injected into the lips, to increase their volume and size. Collagen will naturally enhance the size of the lip whereas the hyaluronic acid fillers will also do this, as well as trapping excess water inside the lips. This motion will then create a natural much fuller pout. Lip enhancements are now seen, overall, as a very positive experience and many wouldn’t leave the house without them!
