Lip plays a crucial role in the beauty of the face

The treatment is one of the easiest cosmetic procedures, and can be done on adults of nearly any age.

Lip augmentation can:
• Increases fullness of thin lips
• Create a more defined smile
• Rejuvenate the mouth area

Medical considerations

As an allergic reaction to the material used for lip augmentation is possible, the candidates should report any allergies to the surgeon.

The patients who choose lip implants should report any respiratory problems because they can be intensified by anesthesia.

How is a lip augmentation performed?

To accomplish augmentation, there are several methods. Among the variety of methods, the surgeon selects the most suitable method for you to ensure best result and safety.

The methods include:
• lip implants,
• fillers, and
• fat transfer.

Lip implants

This method provides permanent lip augmentation. The three types of lip implants include GORE-TEX, Soft Form, and AlloDerm.

Implant surgery is quite simple and takes less than an hour. The surgeon makes incisions usually at the corners of the mouth and then creates a thin tunnel to place the implant.

GORE-TEX lip implants have been used for many years. In this method, natural lip tissue grows and makes the implants a part of the lip structure.

SoftForm lip implants are also made from ePTFE, but have a tubular shape. This lessens the chance of migration.

AlloDerm is derived from human tissue. That is why it will not provoke any allergic response.

Lip implants have fewer complications compared to other cosmetic surgeries. However, like any surgery, there are some factors that should be taken into consideration, including implant rejection, scarring, stiffness of the lips, and implant migration. There is no need to worry though, if you choose a skillful surgeon.

Lip augmentation with fillers

Injectable lip fillers have long been used by cosmetic surgeons to give the lips voluptuous look. As the materials and injections techniques widely vary, there are many options that can fulfill your individual needs. In this method, you can get your desired goal in less than 30 minutes. As the filler itself includes lidocaine, anesthesia is not necessary.

lip filler types

lip filler is injected into the lips

There are two main kinds of fillers which are shortly listed below.

  • Collagen-based lip fillers, which are the most commonly used filler all over the world. They come into two types: bovine-derived collagen, and human-derived collagen.
  • Hyaluronic acid-based lip fillers, which are biodegradable substances that occur naturally in body joints and skin, moisturize and plump the lips, and provide longer-lasting results.

Redness, bruising, swelling, and minor discomfort after the procedure minimize and fade away within a few days.

Lip augmentation with fat transfer

This method is highly recommended and suitable for those who want have plumper lips, but they do not want to inject any foreign material into their body. The fat used in this method is derived from the patient’s own body (usually the abdomen or thighs) and gives you a soft, natural-looking result.

Swelling, bruising, and bleeding is common after the procedure. One of the shortcomings of this method is that some fat cells might die during transfer. However, experienced surgeons inject the fat in different steps, with intervals, to prevent this from happening. The most prominent feature of this method is that it causes no allergy, as it is a part of the patient’s own body.

Lip augmentation recovery

Recovery time after a lip augmentation procedure is typically short, making it one of the easiest ways to make the face more visually appealing.

The length of the procedure varies depending on the method. But generally, the patient can return to their daily routine in less than a day.

Bruising and swelling can be expected and will fade away after about a week. Stitches in the mouth will dissolve in approximately the same amount of time.
Numbness of the lips is also common.

It is noteworthy that after the procedure you should avoid:
• wearing make-up for 12 hours after the procedure
• saunas, steam rooms, sunbeds or sun exposure until redness and swelling fade
• work out for 24 hours after the procedure
• alcohol for at least 24 hours after the procedure
• manipulation of the treated area

Dehydrating and moisturizing creams to refine skin’s texture may be prescribed.
