What do you know about lip augmentation?
Lip augmentation is a cosmetic procedure that reshapes the lips to achieve fuller and youthful results. The procedure is performed under local or general anesthesia depending on the type of the method, which includes filler or fat injection or lip implants.
Filler or autologous fat injection is a non-surgical option, which enhances the lips temporarily through strategically injecting filler or autologous fat which is extracted from the patient's body, to give a fuller appearance.
The other option is a lip implant, which is a surgical method by which soft silicone implants are inserted into lips to increase their volume and achieve a beautiful smile with semi-permanent results that last for many years.
The right candidate for lip augmentation should meet specific criteria:
- The candidate should be in good health, don’t suffer from diabetes, lupus, or blood clotting problems.
- The candidate should not have active infections, such as oral herpes.
- The candidate should not have an allergy to the used products.
- The candidate who has thin or lined lips and wants to increase its volume.
