Full and plump lips are often considered a sign of good health, beauty and youth. Lip enhancement can be achieved with the use of injectable fillers such as hyaluronic acid, lipofilling (fat harvested from another part of the body) or through other surgical techniques which includes the implantation of synthetic biocompatible materials or W-Y plasty. The most appropriate technique is selected according to the facial characteristics of each patient, the shape of the nose and the structure of the lips. Lip augmentation is often used in thin upper and lower lip, as well as in a reduced volume as a result of ageing. Injectable fillers as hyaluronic acid are one of the most desirable and frequently performed nonsurgical procedures.

It is a main component of the connective tissue and together with the related proteins it forms the basis of the intercellular substance. It has been shown that hyaluronic acid takes the role of a "molecular" sponge due to its helical structure / attracts 1000 times more water than its own weight / and because of this ability, it maintains optimum moisture balance of the skin, increasing its elasticity and slowing the aging process .Hyaluronic acid is completely absorbed by the body.

Lip augmentation with hyaluronic acid

Injecting hyaluronic acid is one of the most successful methods applied to non-operative lip enhancement. This procedure gives form, structure and volume of the lips. After injecting the hyaluronic acid in the lips, the effect is visible immediately and lasts from 6 to 18 months, depending on the individual characteristics of each patient. The advantage of lip augmentation with hyaluronic acid is that the injection of the filler allows control over the achievement of the desired volume / application can be done a few times / and does not damage the tissue and the structure of the lips. The amount of hyaluronic acid which is injected into the lips depends on the face structure, in order to obtain maximum aesthetic result.

The intervention lasts 15-20 minutes, it is possible to be performed under local anesthesia by the request of the patient or if the filler does not contain lidocaine. After the procedure a slight swelling and / or bruising / depending on skin type / can appear, which disappears within a few hours. Allergic reaction is unlikely, as hyaluronic acid is a natural component of the body, but if the patient is allergic to lidocaine, it is necessary to inform the specialist who will perform the intervention.

Hyaluronic acid can also be injected in the nasolabial folds, marionette lines and “angry wrinkle” between the eye-brows, which helps for their effacement and also smoothes the skin.

Lip augmentation with lipofilling

Lip augmentation with lipofilling is performed with own autologous fat grafting from a previous liposuction. Lip augmentation with autologous fat grafting begins when fat is harvested from the lower half of a patient’s body (usually the hips, thighs or abdomen) and the harvested fat is then processed. This involves separating the fat cells with the fluid found in the fat. After the processing component of the procedure has been completed, the appropriate amount of fat is injected through invisible needle-size holes on either side of the lips. This procedure can be performed under local anesthesia, conscious sedation, or general anesthesia. Lip augmentation with fat can take up to one hour to complete The result is visible immediately, but the effect of the procedure is up to 24 months, depending on the individual characteristics of each patient. Allergic reactions are not expected to occure.

Lip augmentation surgery with implants

Lip augmentation surgery with implants is a permanent solution for plumping and reshaping the lips. Lip implants are shaped like small tubes filled with synthetic material. A lip augmentation surgery with implants can take from 30 minutes to two hours depending on the technique used and the extent of the enhancement. Local anesthesia is generally used, but a local anesthetic combined with intravenous (IV) sedation is also an option for some patients. The plastic surgeon makes a small incisions at the corners of the mouth or along the upper line of the lip to delicately create a thin tunnel in order to accommodate the implants. The shape and size of the tunnel is essential to producing well-balanced, natural-looking lips. To complete the procedure, the lip implants are inserted and positioned in place through the lips before they are trimmed and the incisions closed.

Other surgical techniques for lip augmentation is WY plasty. This is a very popular method which consist transposition of the mouth lining. The incisions are very small, their shape resembles the letter "W" and are arranged on the inner side of the edge to the gums.

In order to reduce the risk and subsequent side effects, it is necessary to maintain a strict oral hygiene, after this surgical procedure.
