Background: The use of hyaluronic acid soft-tissue fillers for enhancement of lip features is a popular and minimally invasive office-based procedure used worldwide due to its relative simplicity and favorable safety profile. Materials and Methods: Hyaluronic acid was used in illustrative cases to attempt correction of congenital and acquired lip asymmetries. Results: In the cases presented, accurate and cosmetically acceptable results were attained and maintained for the duration of the product life. Conclusions: Hyaluronic acid may be used successfully when lip asymmetry is evident and is a relatively simple nonsurgical alternative.
