09 Aug Lip augmentation using dermal filler
Lips have always been important and of aesthetic concern and have been aesthetically enhanced with different methods since time immemorial. Whether it is lip enhancement with lip colors of all sorts to procedures like lip piercing practiced even in the ancient era, lips have assumed importance as sexual organs. Everyone notices bright red pouted fuller lips.
Dermal fillers are treatments aimed at restoring lost volume and for enhancing lips to a better defined, fuller, pouted lip which draws attention.
Nowadays, an injectable dermal filler is the most commonly used method of lip enhancement which is safe, easy and gave the good cosmetic outcome.
There are many types of dermal fillers that can be injected in your lips and around your mouth. But, nowadays the most common fillers are hyaluronic acid. It is a natural substance that can be found in your body. It helps increase volume in your lips naturally and the best part is the treatment can be reversed in case you are not happy with the results though hardly a few opt for it.
Dermal fillers are used for a lip definition where the vermilion border is enhanced and slightly elevated. The philtrum which runs from the end of the nose to the upper lip is defined and the lateral tubercles created. This is followed by filling volume on both upper and lower lip. Some clients wish for a central depression on the lower lip which can be created with dermal fillers. We do get a lot of patients who get images of the lip they desire and generally the results can be reproduced.
Some women do have asymmetry due to a dental issue of misplaced dentition which can be corrected with lip fillers.
Fat injections and implantations are other methods of desirable and plump lips. But they aren’t used as much nowadays because the results are different and there is a greater risk of side effects. The perfection achieved with dermal fillers is unmatchable since the injection is done at a precise location with fillers as against fat grafts which are injected in bolus.
The treatment can be customized to perfection regarding the shape and pout which you can check from time to time. The injections can be given slowly during different sessions until the desired results are achieved at regular intervals. There may be less staining and swelling compared to other dermal fillers. The results are rationally long-lasting, but not permanent.
