Abstract

The definitive approach to lip augmentation has yet to be defined. Herein is described a technique using acellular allogeneic dermal grafts that is easy, effective, and reproducible. Our results over the past 2 years include 47 patients (94 grafts). Three grafts to the upper lip have exhibited significant resorption, which warranted further augmentation. Early in the series, one graft was malpositioned too superiorly along the vermilion- cutaneous border. There have been no cases of infection, hematoma, or graft exposure. The overall complication rate was 4 percent (4 of 94). Our early results by using acellular allogeneic dermal grafts for lip augmentation are encouraging. Further studies are under way to better objectively define long- term results.
