Lip Augmentation

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

Lip Augmentation Candidates

This procedure is recommended for all women or men who are dissatisfied with the volume, structure or shape of their lips.

Am I Suitable for Lip Augmentation?

Lip augmentation surgery or lip implant surgery is not recommended for patients allergic to lidocaine or dermal fillers. Patients should be in good general health before surgery. Individuals with an active infection near the lip area should not have this procedure. Those have lupus or diabetes, or with blood clotting problems also may not be good candidates for lip augmentation.

Preparing for Lip Augmentation

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 is Lip Augmentation 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.

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.

IsLip 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.
