Types of Lip Augmentation Procedures

You can enjoy fuller lips through several different types of procedures, which will fall into one of three general categories: Permanent implants, fat transfers, and temporary fillers. You may opt to have just your upper or your lower lip augmented, or both.

Permanent Lip Implants

If you are looking forward to permanently augment your lips, then your answer could be silicone implants. These silicone implants are used for permanent lip augmentation. The plus point of using these implants is that they can be removed from your lips in case you decide to get rid of it. Many Cosmetic surgeons prefer silicone lip implants over fat transfers for patients wanting a more permanent augmentation because the silicone unlike fat can’t be absorbed by your body giving more reliable results.

Several silicone lip implants are on the market today, but there basically are two main types: semi-solid soft silicone implants and Gor-Tex implants.

Lip implants are a surgical procedure that is done under local anaesthesia. It can last from about 30 to 60 minutes. Through a tiny incision made inside both your lip corners, space is created in the subcutaneous tissue. The implant is then placed into this space by threading it through one of the corner incisions. The incisions are then closed by absorbable sutures. The procedure is the same for both the upper and lower lip.

Fat Transfers

A fat transfer procedure is an excellent and natural option for those seeking semi-permanent lip enhancements. In this procedure, fat is taken from one area of your body such as your suprapubic or inner thighs and then the same is injected it into your lips. Lip augmentation with fat transfer can last several years or even longer. This being an autologous method, utilizing your own body fat is ideal for those patients who are apprehensive about injecting a foreign substance into their lips.

Some patients find that they need or want a second fat transfer injection about a year after the first to achieve the results they desire. As some percentage of the fat will be reabsorbed by your body, your lips will become less full over time therefore very slight overcorrection is done and must be accepted.

Temporary Fillers

An excellent option for those who are looking forward to enhancing their lips temporarily is the use of temporary natural fillers such as hyaluronic acid, a substance found naturally in our body. Temporary fillers tend to last for four to six months following which you may need to come again for a further session. Some of the popular temporary lip fillers are Restylane and Juvederm, which are hyaluronic acid dermal fillers injected directly into your lips. The main advantage of temporary fillers is that it’s outpatient based quick safe and effective procedure offering instant results. There is no downtime and patients get back to their normal daily routine shortly after the treatment.

Recovery for Lip Augmentation Procedures

Recovery time from your lip augmentation depends on the procedure that has been performed in your case. In the case of temporary fillers, patients usually return to their daily activities immediately.

You can return home immediately following the procedure and you may wish to take 3-4 days off from work while your lips heal, although this varies from patient to patient. Patients are sent home on a prescription of antibiotics and pain medication along with instructions for ice cooling of the operated area for faster recovery.
