Background: Lip augmentation is a very common cosmetic procedure. A wide variety of materials have been used to enhance and contour the lips, including alloplastic and autogenous substances. Objectives: The authors describe their experience with augmentation of the upper lip using an autologous graft from the temporalis fascia. Methods: Patients were enrolled prospectively. Upper-lip projection and vermilion show were measured preoperatively and 6 months postoperatively for 19 patients who were candidates for lip augmentation with temporalis fascia. Results: Six months postoperatively, the mean values for upper-lip projection and lip vermilion were significantly greater than preoperative measurements. Conclusions: Augmentation of the upper lip with temporalis fascia appears to be safe and effective. Larger patient series, longer follow-up, and comparative studies are needed to corroborate these preliminary results. Level of Evidence: 4.
