Lip augmentation


Treatment

Age also reveals problems affecting the aesthetic harmony of the face such as the loss of volume in the lips. 

Lip augmentation or increase of lips volume is one of the aesthetic medicine treatments more performed at Clínica Planas.

Hyaluronic acid is the leading product we use as dermal filler due to its ability to retain liquid and attract water, besides stimulating the collagen production. It is a resorbable filling product, that is, non-definitive or permanent product that lasts for approximately 12 months.

At Clínica Planas we perform a study of your lips profile, and depending on your preferences, tastes and your facial structure, we (together with the doctor) can decide the treatment: only to redefine your lips contour, or to increase the volume. And, if necessary, to correct the vertical wrinkles and the ones of the corners of the lips as well so as to improve the face overall appearance.

The procedure consists of the injection of small amounts of the product in the area to be treated. It is carried out under local topical anesthesia and does not require hospitalization. Application is carried out in a subtle and gradual way, prioritizing the natural lip in order to assess prudential results, so that a second session or touch-up can be performed a few days later, if necessary.

Although the results can be seen immediately, a mild inflammation is usually observed in the area the day of the treatment, but it disappears during the next few hours.

Expert opinion

The lip is one of the major areas of concern for women. I love experiencing the illusion and satisfaction of patients after treatment, when they show more sensual and defined lips. Some patients have noticed a change in their behaviour after the treatment by smiling more often.

To achieve a satisfactory result it is very important to communicate with the patient, to know his tastes and preferences, trying to satisfy his desires, always looking for a natural result in harmony with the facial structure. It should be known that not all lips are refillable. It is essential to evaluate the activity of all muscles related to lips movement to predict whether the filling is feasible or not. Therefore, it is essential to visit an experienced specialist.
