Lip enlargement (augmentation) with the help of fillers
In certain people, the lips are small, taking into account the esthetic proportions of the face. Age-related changes of the mouth and lips involve atrophy of the lips and mouth corner. In consequence, the appearance of wrinkles around the lips and the lowering of the external angles can be observed.
By creating a fuller lip, not just the mouth becomes more beautiful, but also the surrounding tissues, resulting in rejuvenation of the face and increased expressiveness. If you were born with normal lips or lips with thinner dimensions, their augmentations with fillers is your choice. This procedure is also suitable for people who observe thinning of the lips with aging. In this case, lip augmentation has the effect of diminishing the perioral wrinkles.
During the examination you will have the opportunity to explain the shape and size of the desired lips. Your doctor will advise you regarding the best substances and techniques which will offer the finest results in your case. The doctor will know how much filler is needed and how it needs to be injected.
The surgery is performed under local anesthesia and does not require hospitalization. Usually a single injection is enough to produce the desired effect. The intervention can be made to one lip or both, as desired. A great advantage of this procedure is the fact that it offers a pleasant change without the need for recovery time. You can continue your daily activities without interruption.
Although there are several types of fillers, we will mention a few words about hyaluronic acid. This can be found physiologically in the body, contributing to healthy, normal skin structure. This acid increases the volume of the lips, but also moisturizes and nourishes the skin by retaining the water in the tissue. The results are immediate and impressive. However to maintain these effects, the intervention should be repeated within 6-9 months. The advantage of this method is the predictable effects, while possible side effects are temporary and can be controlled.
