1) LIP AUGMENTATION
Some of us have very thin lips with no definition. This may be due to genetics, aging or smoking. Tissue degrades as we age and definition is lost over the years. Most of us want more defined, fuller lips which are smooth, wrinkle-free and youthful. Lip shapes and lip prints are like fingerprints - no two are alike. However there are common lip shape categories and their accompanying complaints.
Lip augmentation uses a variety of materials to create fuller-looking lips, and lip augmentation material also reduce wrinkles in the mouth area. Temporary solutions for lip augmentation are achieved through fillers and fat injections.
In my practice I use routenly,,restalyne & Juvederm.Usually i cc of filler is adequate for single lip.Procdure requires 15 minutes & results last for 6-8 months.Very quick,very safe procedure with immidiate results.
Injecting processed fat from your own body into lips is equally good & long lasting augumentation.This procedure is invasive & 1-3 days down time is required to get adjusted to the new change results are prominent.
Many people believe that their lips are too big, and want them reduced. Many younger patients are often conscious about having larger than average lips and are sometimes teased by their classmates. Although one should wait until the to have their lip size reduced due to maturing of the facial features.In our society ethnicaly lower lip is larger than upper upperlip,which is often not liked by many.Your smile is part of your personality. The curve of our lips and the look of our teeth reveal our feelings and expressions. An attractive smile therefore helps improve one's image and self-confidence.
This procedure really isn't incredibly invasive but there are risks and complications so please read through all of the information.
What Is Lip Reduction?
Lip Reduction is the procedure to remove excess lip tissue to reduce the appearance of overly large lips. The procedure is performed under local anesthesia. The procedure takes only about 30 to 45 minutes and takes about one week to heal. Swelling can be an issue so please know this beforehand. Although a fairly simple procedure.
How a Lip Reduction is Performed
Lip/Lips are marked & photograhed
Once inside operation theatre, lips are anesthetised & wedge shaped tissue & strip of vermilion[dry skin] is removed to give better shape and the Wound is sutured with absorbable material which gets absorbed within few days or can be removed.
Although all surgery have risks and complications,it usually subsides within the first three days.
