Who Is It For?
A lot of women think that their lips are rather thin and indistinct and they dream of full voluptuous ones. Although nowadays there are many products that can be injected in the lips in order to make them look fuller, these methods are only a temporary solution. The product is eventually absorbed by the body and the lips get back to normal. Surgical lip augmentation is a different procedure.
How Is It Done?
Incisions are made on the inner side of the lips, the surrounding mucosa is released and the adjacent tissue is moved up.
Lip augmentation surgery is performed under local anaesthesia or by client’s request under intravenous sedation, which is more comfortable because the patient sleeps during the operation. It usually takes one hour.
The client stays at the clinic overnight. As swelling is to be expected for several days, the use of cooling compresses is recommended. It is also advisable to have spoon food for two to five days, pay attention to good mouth hygiene (mouth washes) and not to move the mouth unnecessarily.
It is absolutely necessary to keep the area clean. Rests of food should not get into the scars on the inner part of the mouth. It is also important to clean the teeth carefully up to five times a day with a soft toothbrush. It is also advisable to rinse the mouth up to five times a day with a chamomile infusion (decanted, with no small parts left).
Back To Normal
Following uneventful recovery, it is normally possible to return to work and resume customary activities within two to three days of the operation.
Given the fact that the incisions are made on the inner side of the mouth, no visible scars remain.
If you would also like to fulfil your desire to look younger, you can combine this operation with the use of injectable dermal fillers.
