You’ve tried it all – lipstick, gloss, and every other lip product under the sun; everything that’s advertised to make your lips look fuller and better contoured. Nothing has worked! You’ve just succeeded in wasting lots of money on a dream of full lips. However, the thin lips you were born with aren’t going to get any fuller on their own. In fact, as you age, it is likely they are going to get worse, manifesting other undesirable traits like wrinkles. Thin lips not only limit your available cosmetic options, but they make it so you constantly look like you are in a bad mood. If you want to stop mean mugging everyone you meet accidentally with thin, severe-looking lips, then it may be time to consider lip augmentation.

If there is one cosmetic procedure that those open to cosmetic surgery may seek to avoid, it could be lip augmentation. At this point, we have all seen the joke on TV – about the woman with augmented lips that looks like she got stung by a bee. Yes, it’s funny, but that is not what lip augmentation is. While this is something you may want to avoid, only bad plastic surgeons will give you these overly filled lips. When you choose a professional with a great reputation, you won’t be able to tell who has augmented lips and who hasn’t. The results really do look that natural.

How is Lip Augmentation Done?

When you choose to have lip augmentation, your plastic surgeon will actually have a variety of options available to you. There are natural options and synthetic fillers available. Regardless of which you choose, they are injected into the lip to increase the plumpness and size of the lips through layering the filler. Unlike you might expect, lip fillers also keep the lips feeling soft and natural instead of weirdly firm.

Unfortunately, lip augmentation isn’t permanent, even if you choose synthetic options. The results will last around six months before they will need to be repeated. The good news that the process is quickly done and most options can be done with a local anesthetic. If you are happy with the results, getting the process redone is quick and easy to complete. It is no different than heading to a tanning salon or getting your nails done.

After the treatment is complete, the lips may have some swelling for the next day. It is something that many patients find worrying because obviously, it may not look like they had hoped. However, this is caused by the trauma of the procedure; it will quickly subside with a little ice to the lips. There is a chance that some who choose collagen-based treatments will have an allergic reaction, but this is rare. Your cosmetic surgeon will go over the risks with you of each treatment so you can make an informed decision.
