Everyone has different perceptions about beauty. If you think you have very thin lips and wish to enhance its appearance, then lip fillers are a perfect solution to your cause. Lip augmentation is a cosmetic procedure that helps women attain fuller lips and pout. Plastic surgeons in Dubai use injectable lip fillers or dermal fillers for this procedure.
There are many types of lip fillers available in the market, but the Hyaluronic Acid (HA) fillers are the most popular ones used for this procedure. This is because HA is a natural substance found in the body and therefore hypo-allergic to most people. HA is also resistant to degradation and can stay for longer periods in the skin. Once your lips are injected with the HA filler, it takes several months to break it down.
HA lip fillers are used not just for lip augmentation. They are also used for smoothening fine lines, wrinkles and smile lines on the face. One of the best reason to use HA fillers on your lips or face is that they can be easily reversed in case of mistakes or health risks.
There are different types of HA fillers that give different results. For instance, Restylane is an HA lip filler that can absorb water and add shape and subtle volume to the lips. On the other hand, Juvederm Volbella has low concentrations of HA and adds subtle volume to the lips without looking unnatural. Consult with your plastic surgeon in Dubai to finalize on an HA lip filler that can help you get the perfect pout you are looking for.
The lip augmentation procedure is a relatively uncomplicated procedure that doesn’t take a lot of time. Initially, the doctor applies a topical numbing cream on the lips to ease any discomfort that may occur. The doctor will then mark the areas needing the filler. Using fine needles, the lip fillers are injected into the lips. Once the required amount of filler is injected in, a small cube of ice is rubbed over the region to manage the swelling.
As lip fillers need little to no downtime, it’s easy to care for them after the procedure. These are-
- Apply ice on the lips to ease the pain
- Drink water to stay hydrated
- Avoid smoking
- Avoid lipsticks and other cosmetics for a few days
- Avoid spicy food
- Allow the fillers to settle for at least 3 weeks before getting back to your normal routines
Eligibility For Lip Augmentation
Most healthy individuals are eligible for getting a lip augmentation. However, it is recommended that individuals suffering from diabetes, oral herpes, lupus, allergies and blood clotting issues must avoid getting the procedure done.
And at the end of the day getting lip fillers must be a personal choice. If it makes you more confident, then lip augmentation is a great cosmetic procedure for you.
Time To See A Doctor
It is normal for a light swelling and bruising to occur post lip augmentation procedure. However, if there is a prolonged swelling of the lips that lasts for more than a week, asymmetrical lips with lumps, or shows signs of infection, it is best to consult your plastic surgeon in Dubai at the earliest.
