Benefits of Lip Augmentation

Posted on: Tuesday, September 29th, 2015  In: News

Women are seeking innovative procedures designed to enhance the volume of their lips.

Lip Augmentation is a popular cosmetic procedure that restores volume to the lips, either through a lip enhancement surgical procedure or with the help of injectable fillers. Patients usually choose fillers, like Juvederm®™, to avoid surgery. Some patients desire a more permanent Lip Augmentation solution to create their ideal look.

Here 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 require several hours. Lip Implant Surgery will require Anesthesia, and will require your doctor to make small incisions. Allergy testing is preformed prior to Lip Augmentation procedures.
  2. Less bruising. Lip Augmentation Fillers 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 minimally invasive lip augmentation procedures, patients can resume their normal activities almost immediately. Patients who undergo a more invasive Lip Implant procedure should usually expect recovery to take approximately a week.
  4. Long-lasting results. Although the results of non-surgical lip fillers usually last for several months, they are not considered permanent, and follow-up visits will likely be necessary to maintain results.  However, temporary procedures can also be very appealing to patients. Especially patients who want to experiment with fuller lips, but do not want to commit to the look on a permanent basis. Although the recovery time associated with Lip Implants is longer, Lip Implants are considered a permanent solution that will not require much maintenance.
