Lips are one of the most important parts of the face which complete its whole aesthetic beauty. They draw attention because they are located in the centre of the face just like the nose. Fleshy and lively lips are always associated with attractiveness. Some people have slim and indefinite lips yet, aging can cause the lips to be slimmer and eased off. Lip augmentation treatment aims to thicken the lips without denaturalising them and to emphasize their shape. This treatment can be applied by surgically or nonsurgically. The choice between these two methods is made according to the condition of the patient’s lips and his / her preferences. If the patient’s lips are bloated he / she can get reduction treatment.
Lip operations can be made surgically or non-surgically according to the patient’s needs and the condition of his/her lips. Non-surgical implementations are performed by using fillers and they are the most preferred methods. Hyaluronic acid or patient’s own adipose tissue can be used as fillers. Surgical lip augmentation is performed by incising the lip and putting a body tissue removed from patient’s own body inside. Surgical lip augmentation has permanent effects compared to the filling methods and it is administered under local anesthesia. Non-surgical methods are performed without using anesthesia.
Blood circulation is high on the lip area. Empurpling and swelling are expected on this area after the operation. In seven or ten days, empurpling and swelling will be absent.
Lip surgery is not administered only to augment the lips. Sometimes it is performed to reduce extra thick lips. Lip reduction surgery is administered under local anesthesia by removing an elliptic tissue with adipose tissues from the lip mucosa and stitching the lip invisibly.
