Benefits of Lip Augmentation

Each year, millions of women look for ways to restore volume and fullness to their lips.

Lip augmentation is a cosmetic procedure that can restores volume to the lips, either through surgery or by using injectable fillers. Most often, patients turn to fillers, such as Restylane, in order to avoid surgery. However, other patients seek more permanent treatment, such as lip implants, to achieve their ideal look.

So, what are some of the benefits of lip augmentation?

  1. Gradual, simple treatment. Lip augmentation is usually performed on an outpatient basis in the doctor’s office. Most injectable treatments take just an hour to complete, though permanent lip implant surgery may several hours. Lip implant surgery will require anesthesia, and will require your doctor to make small incisions. Allergy testing is usually necessary for lip augmentation procedures.
  2. Less bruising. Fillers used for lip augmentation will leave patients with less bruising, swelling,  and fewer side-effects. Patients with lip implants may experience some mild discomfort, or swelling following the procedure. Stitches used to close the incisions will be removed after a few days, and patients are usually advised to use ice packs during the first 24 hours after the procedure.
  3. Less downtime. With nonsurgical lip augmentation procedure, patients can return to their normal activities almost immediately. Patients who undergo a more invasive lip implant procedure should usually expect about a weeks’ recovery period.
  4. Long-lasting results. Although the results of nonsurgical lip fillers usually last for several months, they are not considered permanent, and return visits in the future will likely be necessary to maintain results.  However, temporary procedures can also be very appealing to patients as well- especially patients who want to experiment with fuller lips, but not permanently commit to the look. Although the recovery time associated with lip implants is longer, lip implants are considered a permanent solution that will not require a great deal of maintenance in the future.

  2. […] Facial fillers are expertly injected directly into the lips with an ultra-fine sterile syringe, using a previously determined amount in order to create results that are both noticeable but also natural in appearance. However, those with extremely sensitive skin and allergies to common cosmetic chemicals may be wary of trying injectables because they fear having a bad reaction. […]
