Lip augmentation is a general term for a type of cosmetic procedure with a goal to enhance and increase the fullness and shape of lips by injecting them with a filler. Full, sensual lips have been considered aesthetically beautiful for centuries. By using dermal fillers, physicians can plump up and reshape lips, which enhances the entire appearance of the face.
As people get older, lips naturally become thinner. Fillers can help plump thinner lips and reshape them to a fuller, more beautiful appearance. Lip augmentation varies from temporary injectable fillers to procedures that require surgery. Many opt for temporary fillers which have quick recovery time and nearly instant results.
One of the reasons lip augmentation is performed is to shape the lips. Trained physicians can reshape the contours of the lips, even enhance the “cupid’s bow” of the upper lip. Another goal of lip augmentation is enhancing the structure of the top and bottom lip, giving the mouth a symmetrical and naturally beautiful structure. Lastly, the volume is an expected enhancement to lip augmentation. This adds fullness and makes the lips look plump and sensual.
The Benefits of Hyaluronic Acid Fillers
Injectable dermal fillers like Juvederm and Restylane are the most popular brands that are associated with amazing results. These hyaluronic acid fillers are used to “volumize” and plump up specific areas of the face, including the lips.
There are many benefits of using hyaluronic acid fillers including exact control over the final volume of the lips, less bruising than other types of fillers, unlikely to cause an allergic reaction since hyaluronic acid is found within the body, and the ability to give injections over time to achieve the desired volume.
Hyaluronic acid fillers are carefully injected directly into the lips to give particular volume, structure, and shape. You will talk to your dermatologist about goals and expectations. The procedure usually takes about an hour or less. Results are immediate, though the peak results are seen within just a few days. The duration of the effect varies by product and by the person. You will ask your physician which brand is right for you and how long you should expect the appearance of fullness and symmetry to last.
