The Aim of the Treatment is to Achieve even and Full Lips
There are two types of correction:
By Filler: Correction by injecting with a filler is the most common type of lip procedure, Hyaluronic acid is used as the substance. Among the different types of acid, the soft, easily spreadable form is the right one.
By surgery: After the lips have been creamed with an anesthetic cream, they are modeled. The gel is injected where the change is planned. In this way, you get exactly the shape and size that you want to achieve with the lip injection.
An exception is the lip, where the entire lip red is inverted in the mouth. Then the enlargement of the lip red lands in the mouth. Here the operation must be performed and the red of the lips shifted outwards.
An operation or augmentation makes sense if, as described above, the entire lip red is in the mouth. Then it must be removed in our clinic under anesthesia via an incision between the red and white of the lips. This surgical procedure is very effective, the resulting scar is almost invisible, especially if it is over tattooed.
A special form of surgery is the bullhorn lift, It is useful if the upper lip white is too wide. It is shortened by an incision at the transition between nose and upper lip, at the same time the red of the upper lip is taken out and fuller.
If the lips are to be permanently enlarged and modeled, this can be achieved by surgery. For this purpose, a strip of skin and fat is removed from the groin and the lip is pulled in. The transferred tissue grows into the lips and the effect lasts for a very long time.
After lip formation with hyaluronic acid, the lip swells more or less immediately. One to three days later the swelling is reduced, that is why we order our patients back after one week where you will rediscover their new chin.
During the operation soft food is necessary for one week, Swelling and bruising are then reduced and the stitches are removed.
After injection with hyaluronic acid, there are actually no problems but Incompatibilities are the extreme exception. After an operation there are scars. As mentioned above: They are almost invisible.
When is it not Advisable to Undergo Surgery?
In the case of treatment, whether non-surgical or surgical, the area must be free of infections. If there is herpes, a herpes prophylaxis is necessary for one method as well as for the other.
