Lip Augmentation/Lip Enhancement

What is Lip Augmentation?

Lip augmentation enhances the contour, definition and shape of your lips. It is used to plump up thin lips or to redefine the lost shape and fullness of the lips because of ageing. It also removes fine vertical lines above and below the lips which occur as you age and are called as smoker's lines, lifts up the drooping corners of the mouth and prevents lipstick from bleeding. Although surgical techniques are available, in most cases the condition can be addressed with non-surgical techniques. The non-surgical techniques confer several benefits such as non-invasive procedure causing less trauma, minimal recovery period, and are also more affordable compared to surgical procedures.

Procedure for Lip Augmentation

The surgery usually lasts about 30 minutes and is performed under local anesthesia. The lip is injected with dermal filler using a fine disposable sterile needle. Temporary bruising and swelling in the lip area may occur after the procedure, which subsides within a few days. The results usually last for 6 to 8 months. Lip enhancement is thus a safe and non-invasive procedure to give you natural, soft, fuller, smooth and symmetrical sensuous lips with a plump pout in just 30 minutes.

Before the treatment, the cosmetic surgeon will evaluate your individual needs and determine the dermal filler to be used to get the desired results for you.
