Since the ’80s, voluptuous lips have begun to be considered extremely attractive, and in recent years, lip augmentation has become increasingly popular in cosmetic surgery.
Women from all over the world want by this intervention to offer extra femininity and sensuality and to be as attractive as possible.
About this aesthetic intervention, we will talk about Dr. Cristian Niţescu. He is a primary plastic surgery doctor and doctor in medical sciences, with 20 years of experience and over 6000 successful aesthetic operations.
Lip enlargement is an aesthetic intervention that increases the volume of the lips with the help of hyaluronic acid, silicone implants or fat transfer. Lip augmentation is the perfect solution for women with naturally thin lips or those whose lips have become thinner due to age.
When to consider lip enlargement?
“In my experience, I have encountered 4 main reasons why patients resort to such an aesthetic intervention:
The lips were always thin;
Lips have become thinner as a result of age or smoking;
The lips are voluptuous, but one wants to define them;
The asymmetry between the upper and lower lips is desirable to repair;
Of course, all these reasons are complemented by the patients’ desire to be as attractive as possible. ”- says Dr. Cristian Niţescu.
What is hyaluronic acid? The benefits of hyaluronic acid
There are currently several types of augmentation (filling) materials that can be injected into the lips and around the mouth. But, the most common of these is hyaluronic acid, a protein naturally found in the body, especially in cartilage and skin. The great benefit of hyaluronic acid is that it shapes both the shape and the structure and volume of the lips.
The benefits of hyaluronic acid
Once injected, hyaluronic acid can support and shape the lip tissue.
The doctor has control over the amount of substance injected so that the result is the one you want.
The swelling created by the movement of the lips is easily dissolved.
Aesthetic intervention can be done gradually until the desired results are obtained.
Less bruising and swelling compared to other fillers.
Unlikely Allergic Reaction – Hyaluronic acid is made from substances similar to those found in the body, thus unlikely to cause an allergic reaction. If you are allergic to lidocaine, tell your doctor before following this cosmetic procedure.
Conduct of the procedure
Lip augmentation is a non-surgical cosmetic procedure that lasts about 30 minutes and begins with a medical consultation where your doctor will find out what your expectations are. So that the amount of hyaluronic acid injected is in line with the result you want.
Hyaluronic acid is administered in the lips with a very fine needle, not before your doctor gives you local anesthesia, using an anesthetic gel or by injection. The effect is visible immediately. But the real results you can see after a few days. During the procedure, you will be perfectly aware and you will receive a mirror to look at your new lips. Also, you will be in constant contact with the doctor so that the result is the one you want.
Possible complications of lip augmentation intervention
Even if the risks are minimal, they exist, as with any other cosmetic surgery. Patients may experience mild discomfort, a feeling of rigidity (passing) or minor bruising.
Recovery from lip augmentation
The procedure used to enlarge the lips determines the length of the recovery period. The average of the total recovery period is 1-2 days. The recovery after the augmentation of the lips by injection is faster, the patient being able to return to the usual program in a maximum of 24 hours.
“The patient should not expose the treated area to intense heat or extreme cold in the following days after treatment. This is to avoid the risk of inflammation. Because hyaluronic acid injection disturbs the area. However, when is hyaluronic acid integrate into the body, it will adapt to the normal body temperature. The results of the lip augmentation intervention with hyaluronic acid are excellent, and most patients are delighted with the result. ”
