7 facts about lip augmentation

Lip augmentation is the most common and popular procedure. It can not only increase volume but also help to emphasize the contour, moisturize the skin of the lips and straighten the wrinkles. And contouring plastics will be very useful for the asymmetry of the lips and the correction of the consequences of trauma. Sometimes only using fillers can make scarring on the lips less noticeable. If you have decided on this procedure, consider some of the nuances that are important to know, both before and after the procedure.

What kind of fillers are used?

To date, fillers containing hyaluronic acid are considered the most natural and most advanced. Another option of natural filler is lipo-injection. It is the introduction of fat cells from other parts of the body, but the effect of such injections is not durable, because the body can absorb fat. As for collagen injections, they require a 4-week test for allergic reactions.

How painful is it?

At the beginning of the procedure, you will feel something like a pinch, and then you will feel tingling while the filler is injected. After the procedure, the cosmetologist will massage your lips and apply ice. The rehabilitation process usually takes one day, then you will see your lips as they will look for the next few months.

Is it possible to change the shape of the lips?

Hyaluronic acid fills the lips and adds volume, but does not change shape. In pursuit of the perfectly plump lips, such as Angelina Jolie has, do not forget about it. After the procedure, you will have your lips, however slightly larger.

What are the consequences?

Swelling, redness, bruising and pain are the most common complaints. Small bruises at the lip augmentation site are normal, they take about 5-7 days. The doctor may also use a laser to dissolve the blood clot as needed. The presence of tubercles and lumps indicates that the filler is very close to the surface. They are usually resorbed, and this can be adjusted, but it looks unnatural.

It is possible to get rid of “new lips”

But as always there is one "but". If the result did not live up to expectations, just a day or two after the procedure, you can correct everything. Contact the clinic, the cosmetologist will introduce a destructive drug that painlessly dissolves hyaluronic acid. But do not be afraid of the effect on the first day after the procedure can not be evaluated – the lips are too plump or big. The result will only be noticeable when the swelling is gone.

How long will the result last?

If we talk about filler with hyaluronic acid, the effect usually lasts from 4 to 6 months, since hyaluronic acid is produced naturally by our body. But, if you have a good metabolism, then the body "converts" the formula faster, and the effect will not last that long.

What to expect after stopping the injection?

The lip skin is incredibly supple. So even if you have been injecting hyaluronic acid for many years and then suddenly stop, nothing bad will happen. Lips will not wrinkle, will not become flabby and will not sag.
