Full, sensual lips have long been considered an aesthetic ideal. Lip augmentation with lip implants or dermal fillers plumps up the lips and enhances the look of the entire face. Those who have thin lips can especially benefit from lip enhancement. Recovery time after a lip augmentation procedure is typically short, making lip enhancement one of the easiest ways to make the face more visually appealing.
Thin lips are a concern for many women. Lip augmentation can increase lip volume and reduce the appearance of lipstick lines by filling age-related creasing along the lip border.
Most women are good candidates for lip augmentation, but anyone considering the procedure should learn about the risks and benefits of lip augmentation before making a decision.
Adults of nearly any age may be good candidates for lip augmentation. Patients with naturally thin lips or an age-related decrease in lip volume typically derive exceptional results from the procedure. Anyone who undergoes lip augmentation should be in good health and have reasonable expectations about the outcome. Often the cosmetic surgeon will show you before and after photos of previous patients to display the results of lip augmentation with injectable lip fillers, fat transfer and lip implants.
Today it is possible to rejuvenate lips and the peribuccal area by using very high quality fillers such as Juvederm Ultra, Juvederm Volift, Volbella; Restylane; Puresense Teosyal range products, Teosyal RHA.
The procedure takes 10-15 minutes and is performed with topical anesthetic (numbing cream). In rare cases (high sensitivity to pain) it requires local anesthesia with lidocaine. Hyaluronic acid is injected with a fine needle either to increase volume or to define the contours and eliminate fine lines, or for both.
Patients are very satisfied with this treatment and the results are immediate. Recovery time is low or none.
The lips may be slightly inflated for a few days. During these days, local cold applications and the application of Arnica gel can lead to faster edema remission in your lips.
