Lip Augmentation & Reduction
Yes….very much so…& quite routinely done around the world.
You may not be aware of this, but scientifically, the lip is a very important contributor to how your facial beauty is perceived by others.
Well, in simple terms, we can increase or reduce the size & volume. In Aesthetic terms we can define your aesthetic points, make your lip more youthful & get it in balance with the rest of your facial characteristics.
Eventual shape is determined by your lips, the idea is to make you have better & “natural” looking lips, which blend perfectly with your facial features. (The Angelina Jolie pout does not look good on everyone!)
It can be done by a variety of techniques & materials. You could get thoroughly confused reading about all options for lip augmentation, each one professing to be the right one. In reality, only a qualified medical professional can determine the right procedure after speaking to you as well as going over your medical history & examining your lips and skin. A Lip reduction is a surgical procedure done in patients with full lips who desire slender and thin lips instead of an excessive pout.
It depends on what has been done. It could last from about 6 months to 3-4 years (Lip reduction is permanent).
Not really, it is done under Local anaesthesia (I assure you that I take a lot of effort to make it as painless as possible!)
It depends on what needs to be done. It varies between 30 mins to 2 hours.
You may return to your regular routine immediately following lip augmentation. Swelling and bruising may last for 3 to 7 days. Discomfort is minimal, and prescription pain medication is often not required.
Complications are minimal but can occur. These are procedure specific & you are welcome to discuss them during your consultation.
Full, luscious lips have always been sought after, regardless of age. Lip augmentation has become very popular due to the impressive cosmetic results possible through this relatively simple procedure….& it does make a “significant” difference.
