What is Lip Augmentation?
Lip augmentation is a procedure that increases volume, fullness, contour, and definition in the lips while smoothing out lines and wrinkles around the mouth. There are several options for lip augmentation procedures. You may try a dermal filler or facial fat transfer using fat from your own body, or you may consider an implant for a more permanent solution.
Why Consider Lip Augmentation?
As a result of the aging process and lifestyle habits such as smoking, our lips tend to show the signs of wear and tear, sun damage, and loss of elasticity in the skin. They can become thin and brittle, and annoying vertical lines may form around the upper lip line, making it difficult for lipstick to stay within the lip line. To get rid of those pesky “smoker’s lines” and increase fullness, firmness, definition, and smoothness in your lips, a lip augmentation procedure is the solution. Lip augmentation provides a simple and quick pick-me-up that can renew your entire facial appearance in a single treatment session with no downtime.
Is Lip Augmentation Safe for Everyone?
While lip augmentation is safe for most healthy adults, it is not recommended for those with chronic oral health conditions such as oral herpes.
Are There Any Risks or Complications with Lip Augmentation?
Depending on which procedure you choose, normal swelling and bruising may last anywhere from three days to a week. With dermal filler injections and implants, there is a minor risk of possible allergic reactions that can appear as redness, swelling or itching, or unusual firmness at the injection or incision site. With implants, in rare cases, the implant may shift from its intended position. With fat transfer injections, the risk of adverse reaction is greatly reduced because the procedure uses your own body fat.
What Can I Expect After Lip Augmentation?
There is no prescribed recovery period following lip augmentation, and you can expect to resume your day’s activities after treatment.
You may experience minor soreness, swelling or bruising. Luckily, these symptoms can be treated with over-the-counter medication and will clear up on their own in a day or two.
Avoid touching or biting your lips, eating sticky, spicy, or hot foods, and kissing for the first few hours after treatment in order to allow the skin of the lips to recover from the procedure and adapt to the new size and shape of the lips.
