What is lip augmentation?

Plump lips are the dream of any woman. Indeed, lips are the most vulnerable part of the human face. They are the first to attract attention when talking and communicating. Hyaluronic acid is used for the lip augmentation procedure. It is injected into the lips with the help of injections into problem areas, after which the lips acquire a seductive puffy appearance. During the procedure, you can adjust the filling of the lips, based on the wishes of the client. Today, hyaluronic acid is one of the safest and most popular drugs, which is used for many aesthetic procedures, including lip augmentation.

The procedure for introducing the filler takes from 15 minutes to an hour. Since the lips are a sensitive area, the procedure is performed under local anesthesia using a local anesthetic cream. The only discomfort after the increase may be slight redness, swelling, which disappear within 1-2 hours. The final results of the procedure will be visible after 48 hours. During this time, the acid is evenly distributed in the lips and will bind a sufficient number of water molecules around it.

    How is the procedure going?

    Immediately after the administration of the drug, the first result is visible, the maximum effect can be assessed in a week. For example, lips after Juvederm become soft and voluminous, small wrinkles in the corners and around the lips are smooth.

    3. The area of ​​the vermillion of the lower lip and its volume exceeds those for the upper lip with a ratio of 1: 2
    Rehabilitation

    Rehabilitation after the procedure is quite favorable and does not require compliance with any strict regimen. The main limitation is to exclude warming procedures for a week. After the introduction of the gels, slight edema is observed, but it is so insignificant that many patients come to the next appointment with a request to enlarge their lips a little more to get the same result as they did with the edema. Finally, it should be noted that immediately after the procedure there is a likelihood of the formation of small bruises, which pass quickly enough.

    Result

    The first result can be seen in the first minutes after the lip augmentation procedure. You will evaluate the final result in 1-2 weeks. Depending on the individual characteristics, age, the volume of the drug administered, the duration of the result may be different. As a rule, modern drugs are able to maintain the volume and youth of the lips throughout the year. And this is great, given that we use the safest drugs. Sometimes there is a need to conduct a repeated increase procedure earlier than a year later. Usually this happens in those cases when the first procedure was “trial”: the doctor introduced a not very voluminous drug so that the patient could evaluate how comfortable she was, and the result is natural. In such cases, a second procedure can be carried out in 1-3-6 months.

    Lip augmentation is not a complicated and fast enough procedure, but it also has some contraindications:

    • infections in the lips or on any part of the skin;
    • the presence of chronic diseases (in the acute stage);
    • cases of anaphylaxis (anaphylactic shock);
    • any problems with blood coagulation;
    • intolerance to the individual components of the drug used to increase;
    • body rejection of foreign bodies (in the past);
    • cases of the use of permanent fillers in the past;
    • inflammatory processes in the body;
    • connective tissue diseases;
    • the tendency to scarring (hypertrophic and keloid);
    • pregnancy (including early pregnancy) and the period of breastfeeding – in these cases, the procedure can harm both the patient and the baby.

    Experts highlight a number of advantages characteristic of hyaluronic acid-based injections:

    • instantly noticeable result;
    • lack of scars, scars, damaged vessels;
    • minimal risk of complications;
    • hypoallergenic;
    • visual naturalness of enlarged lips;
    • absolute biocompatibility with human tissues;
    • reduced operation time; quick rehabilitation.

    Experts always warn that in rare cases, complications and side effects are possible:

    • itching and redness
    • allergic reactions
    • swelling at the injection sites;
    • hematomas, nodules under the skin;
    • hypersensitivity or numbness of the skin at the injection site.

    How to choose a drug for lip augmentation?

    The choice of the drug, depending on what tasks you have to solve with it, is best entrusted to your doctor. For example, a denser gel is used for the contour, and softer for the volume itself.
