Lip Augmentation

It is an aesthetic procedure to provide you with fleshy lips. Dermal fillers that are injected into lips and the periphery of the mouth are products that contain substances, such as hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid is a natural substance found in our body and it helps increasing volume of lips.

These methods also reduce the thin lines and wrinkles around the lips.

This is an appropriate method for everyone with no significant health problem and it requires specialty.

Same as other medical procedures, your doctor needs to know your documented allergies, medications used and your health history. Diabetes and smoking may cause complication.

Age-related effects may result in thinner, smaller lips that lose attractiveness. Lip augmentation makes deformed and straightened lips appear thicker and fleshy. Moreover, wrinkles around the lips can extend downwards and cause a sad expression. Augmentation materials can be used to eliminate those wrinkles. The need to lip augmentation may not be secondary to aging alone. People with congenitally thin lips can have both natural looking and fleshy lips thanks to augmentation substances.

How is it done?

First, the lip is designed in line with the overall facial appearance; if one or both corners of mouth are sagging, they are treated using fillers.

Anesthetic cream is applied on the lip to feel no pain during the injection. Fillers boost the volume at the injection site and effects are immediately evident. Moreover, it is safe as its content is natural.

The lip is shaped as requested by injecting the filler using syringes with very thin needles. It is a simple and pain-free procedure that lasts 15 to 20 minutes in average.

Hyaluronic acid used for lip augmentation creates outcomes that are maintained for 6 to 12 months. Facial expressions, environmental conditions and the structure of the filler are the factors that influence how long outcomes of the augmentation will be evident. However, this period can be prolonged in people, who receive lip augmentation at regular intervals.

The lip augmentation is used for young people to augment upper and lower lips proportionally and to eliminate age-related loss of volume in lips. Lips are one of the most important parts of face that reflects happiness and health.
