Lip augmentation is the most common cosmetic procedure which gives you fuller and plumper lips. There are various methods to augment your lips, but the most common one is the injectable dermal filler. There are many dermal types of fillers that can be injected in your lips or the area around it. The fillers contain substances similar to hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring substance found in the human body. It boosts the volume of your lips. The dermal fillers having hyaluronic acid are called Hyaluronic acid fillers.
In the past, collagen was used, but due to the introduction of new and safe options, they are less commonly used today. Another way to make your lips fuller is fat injections and implants but implants have greater side-effects. Fat from inner thigh or lower tummy is removed using tiny needles, centrifuged to remove impurities and then injected in marked areas of the lips using tiny canulae.
Hyaluronic acid can improve the lip's appearance by boosting its shape, volume and structure. The effect of fillers lasts for around six months, and after that more injections are needed to keep the volume of your lips intact.
Lip Augmentation can be performed in the doctor’s office quickly with little downtime. Before injecting the fillers, a topical numbing agent is applied to ease up the discomfort. Sometimes, nerve blocking agents are given to numb the lips. After carefully marking the lip areas, very fine needles are used to inject the fillers in the lips. Immediately after the procedure, the use of lipsticks or lip products is discouraged. You will feel the difference almost immediately.
Side-effects of lip augmentation are temporary and usually subside after a few days. Some of the side-effects include bleeding from the sites, redness and tenderness, swelling and numbness, and reactivation of fever blisters and cold sores. More serious side-effects are severe swelling and bruising, lumps on the lips, lip asymmetry, infection, tissue loss and injection into the blood vessel.
