Lip augmentation is a non-surgical treatment that creates fuller, plumper lips and reduce fine linesa around the mouth. The procedure is used for enhancement, augmentation of lip volume, definition of lip profile, and/or lip remodelling.
A pharmaceutical filler substance or your own fat is injected below the skin surface to plump the lips. Fat is typically taken from the inner thigh or abdomen.
Your initial appearance after treatment with any filler may include:
- Mild swelling or bruising
- Temporary numbness or redness
- An “over-filled” appearance to treated areas
These conditions can be alleviated with topical icing and will improve within a matter of hours or just a few days. Where fat is the injected filler, these conditions may persist for a few weeks.
The results of soft tissue augmentation with injectable fillers are not permanent, even though a filler substance may be considered permanent. The continued aging of your face and variables in the absorption of fillers will affect how long your results last.
Should you choose not to repeat treatment, your appearance will return to its original condition. Plumped lips will lose volume and improved wrinkles, creases and scars will visibly recess and fully reappear in time.
