Lips play an important role in defining the aesthetics of our face. Every lip type has its own beauty. Even though, the type of our lips is based on genetics, we still can enhance its features with the right care and professional approach. To an extend, we also can get the desired shape of our lips surgically, to make them look more attractive.
As we grow older, the lips that were once full and voluptuous become thin and develop vertical wrinkles, making the face look aged. Cosmetic lip augmentaion or lip enhancement is a procedure that enhances the appearance, shape, and size of the lips of an individual. It involves the enlargement and reshaping of otherwise normal lips to improve their dimensional relation with the patient’s nose, teeth, and surrounding facial structures. The appearance of the lips is determined by the spatial relation of the lip structures with the teeth in a 3-dimensional space and by their function during animation and speech. The most attractive lip measurements considered in women is a lip surface area making up 9. 6% of the lower third of the face and an upper/lower lip ratio of 1:2.
Cosmetic lip augmentation is the procedure that can give you fuller, plumper lips.
Injectable lip augmentation techniques can be performed quickly in FMS SKIN CLINICS with little to no downtime. Fat injection is the exception, since the procedure requires a small area of liposuction to remove the fat from another part of your body before the injection is done.
Dermal fillers are injected using an ultra-thin needle into points along the outline of the lips. Before the injections, a topical or local numbing agent may be applied to ease discomfort. Sometimes, nerve block injections can be given before the treatment to completely numb the lips. After carefully marking the areas to be injected, very fine needles are used to inject the substance into your lips. You should be able to notice the difference immediately.
Following injection, ice may be given to ease discomfort and control swelling. Post injection, no firm pressure should be put on the treatment area. Lipstick or other lip products are best avoided immediately after the procedure.
The effects typically last around six months to year and half. After that more injections may be needed to keep the volume of your lips. There are several hyaluronic acid fillers available at FMS SKIN CLINICS and some contain lidocaine, a local anesthetic.
