Lip Augmentation

Compare 15 clinics

Lip augmentation surgery, also known as permanent lip augmentation is a type of cosmetic surgery performed in order to improve the aesthetic appearance of the lips, 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, but are not limited to:

● Augmentation with fat transfer – The doctor uses fat harvested through liposuction to inject the patient’s lips
● Permanent lip augmentation – Lip implants can improve volume
● Augmentation with dermal fillers – This is the most popular choice for doctors and patients alike - Dermal fillers can improve the shape, structure and the volume of the lips. The effects of this procedure last 6 to 12 months.

The main benefits of using dermal fillers include:

● Less bruising after the procedure is complete
● Results tend to last long, although not necessarily permanent
● Better control over the lip volume
● Injections can be performed gradually, until the desired look is achieved
● Any bumps or lumps in the lips can be dissolved with ease
● Less chance of having an allergic reaction to dermal fillers

Fat injections or lip implants surgery can be performed in order to achieve permanent lip augmentation but these procedures can also have more side effects.

Lip Augmentation Candidates

This procedure is recommended for any individual 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 to dermal fillers. Patients with an active infection near the lips area should not have this procedure. Patients suffering from lupus, diabetes or blood clotting problems are not good candidates for lip augmentation surgery. Patients need to be in a good general state of health before going in for surgery.

Preparing for Lip Augmentation

Blood thinners, oral supplements and herbal teas need to be avoided at least 2 weeks before the procedure can begin. Patients need to quit smoking at least 2-3 weeks before and after the procedure.

How is Lip Augmentation Performed?

The lip augmentation surgery depends on the technique used. It is mostly done under local anaesthesia with no incision sites, the only exception being fat injection which requires general anaesthesia for the liposuction.

The technique using dermal fillers is the simplest – The patient is first administered local anaesthesia and then the surgeon will begin marking out the areas where the fillers will be injected. A very small needle is then used to inject the dermal fillers into the patient’s lips. The surgeon can also make subtle adjustments as needed.

Lip Augmentation FAQ

?
How long does lip augmentation last?

It depends on the technique used. Lip implants can be used for permanent lip augmentation. Lip augmentation with hyaluronic acid fillers usually lasts 6 to 12 months.

?
Is it painful?

The procedure itself is not painful, as strong sedatives are administered in the lip region. Some patients may have more sensitive lips than others, so it depends.

?
Are there any alternatives to lip augmentation surgery?

Yes, but these alternatives do not provide the same long lasting results as lip augmentation surgery. Lip plumper is a type of cosmetic product that works by irritating the lips and swelling them temporarily. Suction pumps can also be applied on the lips to increase blood pressure and make them appear bigger.
