My experience was great!

I was worried that I would have my surgery in a foreign country alone, but Luna Clinic made me feel right at home. They attended to my every need right away, and I didn’t feel alone even for one second. Thanks for everything. My experience was great!

Excellent Service from Abud of Flymedi

Abud was excellent in arranging my visit to Istanbul for both Eyelid and Hair Treatment. I decided to combine both treatments at Estecenter due to the clinics reputation. recommendations and also Abud's guidance. Abud clearly communicated the types of treatments available , estimated costs , all treatment schedules , travel logistics , hotel arrangements and daily transportation to and from clinic. Through responses coordinated between Abud and Estecenter he answered all my questions beforehand and was concise in the cost of treatments being communicated by Estecenter . Truly excellent service and i highly recommend you engage Abud as this leaves you know worries in relaxing during and after your very important treatments that you waited so long to have done Also i decided to stay and additional 7 days , at my own cost in Istanbul, to help my recovery.

Life changing !

I had a massive operation with a full body lift that actually required 2 separate visits to Turkey which was very daunting for me to commit to but I’m so happy I did. I’ve never felt comfortable in my own skin and really struggled with my body especially after having 2 kids. It was really nice to do something for myself and Luna clinic made the experience hassle free for me. They were there for me from beginning to end through both visits and it couldn’t have gone better for me. Thank you so much for the life changing operation and experience.

Overview

Lip augmentation surgery is a cosmetic procedure that is frequently used by women who have thin lips and want to have fuller and plumper lips or who are in need correction of their gummy smile through the use of dermal fillers, lip implants and other different types of materials. 


Permanent lip augmentation has gained a lot of popularity among patients since the 2000s – newer, more effective techniques and materials have been developed and the procedure itself became more patient-friendly. 

Lip augmentation options include: 
 

  • Lip augmentation with fat transfer – The surgeons use fat harvested through liposuction to inject the patient’s lips
  • Permanent lip augmentation by using implants – Lip implants can improve the volume
  • Lip augmentation with dermal fillers– This is the most popular choice and can improve the shape, structure and the volume of the lips.


The main benefits of using dermal fillers include: 
 


  • Less bruising after the procedure is complete 
    Results last relatively long, although not necessarily permanent 
    Providing better control over the lip volume 
    It can be injected gradually until the desired look is achieved 
    Any bumps or lumps in the lips can be dissolved with ease

Preparation

Blood thinners, herbal supplements, anti-inflammatory drugs and herbal teas need to be avoided at least 2 weeks before the procedure can begin. Patients should also quit smoking at least 2-3 weeks before and after the process. Following the surgeon’s instructions are very important both before and after the lip augmentation procedure.

How It Is Performed

The content of lip enlargement surgery depends primarily on the technique used. Most procedures do not require incision and are performed under local anesthesia. The only exception is the fat injection that requires general anesthesia for liposuction.

The technique using dermal fillers is the simplest – After local anesthesia is applied to the patient, the surgeon marks the areas where the fillers will be injected. A very small needle is used to inject the dermal fillers into the lips from the marked areas. The surgeon may also make fine adjustments when the main injection is finished.

Recovery

Lipstick or other lip cosmetic products are forbidden for a few days after the lip augmentation surgery. Ice or cold packs can be applied to the lips area in order to reduce and ease swelling and discomfort. Patients should avoid putting any pressure on the lips for a few days following the surgery.

Risks

Lip augmentation surgery risks and complications can include: 
 


  • Prolonged bruising and swelling 
    Lips asymmetry 
    Irregularities and lumps in the lips 
    Infection 
    Scarring and stiffness
  • Ulceration
    Allergic reaction to lidocaine or dermal fillers 
    Bleeding

Side Effects

Lip augmentation surgery side effects can include: 
 


  • Swelling
  • Allergic reactions
    Itching 
    Redness 
    Tenderness
  • Lumps and irregularities in the lip

Success Rates

Lip augmentation reviews set the average treatment success rate at 89%.

Before And After

Patients can see results immediately after the procedure is over. The swelling will slowly subside during the first few days after the procedure. Depending on the persistence of the technique used, patients may need to undergo further treatment within a few months to maintain their results. The success of the results mainly depends on the surgeon’s skill and experience. There are some cities in Europe, such as Istanbul or Budapesthave many skilled surgeons performing lip augmentation procedures with high satisfaction rates and more affordable prices. 

Faq

How Long Does Lip Augmentation Last? 
The permanence of the results varies depending on the technique used. Lip implants can be used for permanent lip enhancement. The results of lip enhancement with hyaluronic acid fillers usually last between 6 and 12 months.

Is Lip Augmentation Painful?
The procedure itself is not painful since strong sedation is applied in the lip area. However, some patients may have more sensitive lips than others, so this may depend on the patient.

 

Are There Any Alternatives to Lip Augmentation Surgery? 
Yes, but these alternatives do not provide the same long-term results as lip augmentation. Lip plumper is a cosmetic product that provides temporary swelling by irritating the lips. Suction pumps can also be applied to the lips to increase blood pressure to make them appear bigger temporarily.
