Lip filler injection is maybe one of the most wanted cosmetic procedures mainly by women but recently and by men as well. The techniques can be divided into two main groups.
First is the technique that enhances the contour of the lips, the other is for volume augmentation. Even though every patient is different and we should proceed with every case uniquely, there are some basics that always guide us through the procedures.
If we aim at providing better lip contour for the patients, we usually inject the filler in the vermillion border. The philtrum arc can be augmented as well thus leading to younger and better looks. In the photo down below, you can see the basic techniques and directions for injecting the filler in the lips.

For increasing lip volume, we usually place the fillers in the body of the lip itself. There are a couple of injection zones that we basically enhance. You may see them below.
