Goal: Improvement of the lip contour, enlargement of thin lips, and correction of asymmetry.
Surgical Procedure: Lips can be enhanced with patient’s own fat, dermis, head tissue, muscle or tendon or by injecting synthetic materials or hyaluronic acids.
Duration and Anesthesia: Lip enhancement with patient’s fat material is done in local anesthesia, and it lasts for about 20-30 minutes,while the injection of synthetic materials is much shorter.
Post Surgical Recovery: One day after intervention you should talk and smile the least possible. There is a possibility for redoing a procedure to accomplish better and long-lasting result, due to unpredictable resorbtion of fat tissue, collagen or synthetic material.
Rare Complications: Light swelling and rarely, allergic reaction to extraneous material.
