Having a lip augmentation done entails having the lips reshaped or enlarged to better complement the patient’s face in terms of size. In addition to that, Dr. Trelles, a plastic and laser surgeon at the cutting-edge Vilafortuny clinic for dentistry, plastic and aesthetic laser surgery, explains that lip augmentations can be used to restore volume and fullness to the lips while also diminishing the look of fine lines.
Those who are in generally good health, want fuller, more defined lips, and have reasonable expectations are good candidates for a lip augmentation.
How to know that you need Lip Augmentation?
Your lips have become thinner with age.
Your lips have become wrinkly or fine-lined.
Your lips are not balanced.
Two weeks before getting a lip augmentation, there are two things you can do to reduce the likelihood of bruises and swelling:
Quit the habit immediately.
Put down the aspirin and other pain relievers.
In most cases, lip augmentation can be done in a matter of minutes and does not require hospitalization.
A local anesthetic could be used to ease any pain you’re experiencing, since fine needles are used during the injection process to lessen the patient’s pain.
While using hyaluronic acid, a substance found naturally in the human body, two lip augmentation treatments are available:
Patients can immediately resume their daily activities after the injections are complete.
The lips may be slightly swollen and tender to the touch, but this will subside as the anesthesia wears off. If needed, over the counter-pain medication can be taken to reduce these symptoms.
The final results of lip augmentation done at Vilafortuny can be seen right away and will continue to improve over the next few days. Up to six months of results are possible, but maintenance treatments are advised every three to six months.
