Neat, full lips are symbols of effeminacy but unfortunately not everybody possess “perfect” lips either because of aging or because of individual givens.
Parallel with the aging of the face lips get thinner as well and wrinkles appear around it. This process can be very forceful mainly on the upper lip. The line of the mouth is narrow in case of thin upper lip that brings strict expression for its wearer.
Lips can be thinner genetically of course or they can be asymmetric because of an accident or developmental disorder. With the help of lip enhancement lips are provided with more beautiful shape and the desired sensual mouth can be achieved.
For whom we recommend:
Lip augmentation (lip thickening, lip enhancement) is carried out at own request of the patient for making lips more full and younger-looking for all those who would like to have more full, more symmetrical lips.
Before the procedure
We discuss your requirements in details before the intervention; what kind of, how big change and fullness you would like to achieve (more full upper or lower lip or maybe both), what procedure is needed exactly to reach the result and if you have had any similar intervention before.
Lip augmentation begins with local anesthesia and takes few minutes (20 – 30 minutes). Wide range of fillers is available. A part of them contains natural substance already found in human body too (for example hyaluronan) that absorbs after a time so the usage of them has to be repeated every half – one year.
There are more permanent fillers as well which contain some nonabsorbable substance too. Besides different types and constitutions of manufactured injections there is a possibility for lip thickening that is carried out by using own fat.
After a lip augmentation
Swelling always appears after a lip augmentation so the final result cannot be seen immediately. Swelling can be reduced by local ice pack. Avoid significant moving of lips (chewing gum, too much of talk, laughing, etc.), sunbathing, solarium, dental treatment for few days. Swelling leaves off after few days and the result becomes visible.
The mouth may remains sensitive in the next few days after the treatment. If the effect of lip augmentation passes we can have full, neat lips again with another treatment.
