As hard as it is to believe, they should be well-fitted enough to stay in place without any kind of anchoring. Especially if you're getting the combo cheek and mid-face implants: since those cover such a large area and are fit to so many contours of your bone. A good surgeon will shave off certain areas of a shelf implant to give it that custom fit.
“One popular new plastic surgery technique is called lip grafting, or "fat recycling" wherein fat cells are removed from one part of your body that is too large, such as your buttocks, and injected into your lips; people will then be literally kissing ass.”
