In case of a thinner upper or lower lip, the line like mouth can give a stern look to the person, the lips are not significant enough and their curve is not dominant. By forming, enhancing the lips, a nicer curve and a more sensual look can be created.
The enhancing is done by injecting fillers into the lip. The effect of most substances is temporal; it lasts up to 3-6 months.
There are possibilities with permanent effects, like placing special (PTFE) fiber into the lip, which later on can be removed, or by using the body’s own fat, taken from some other body part to fill up the lips.
- When can I go out after the procedure?
Right after the injection a larger swelling will form which will slowly disappear within 1-2 days.
- Can the procedure be repeated when the effects are gone?
Yes. It’s important to remember the name/components of the used substance. Every material has its own identification code which has to be marked on the treatment sheet by the plastic surgeon.
