Introduction: What is lip augmentation or lip enhancement?

The procedure to make lips cosmetically enhanced and plumped using a dermal injectable/filler under the skin of the lips is known as the procedure of lip augmentations. Soft tissue fillers are also used to effectively fill in the lines and wrinkles that forms around the mouth, causing lipstick to bleed. Filling in these wrinkles significantly decreases the appearance of facial aging and can help you look younger than your actual age or the age you actually feel. Dermal fillers are presently the best non-surgical way of giving the lips a stouter, fuller, attractive shape, or a different structure, depending on the outcomes you’re longing for.

The 3 main ways lip augmentation can help your facial appearance are:

  1. Fullness & fluffiness
  2. Lip sculpt molding or creating the “cupid’s bow” of the upper lip
  3. The frame & layout of the lips

Lip Augmentation : An experience shared

  • Smoothen out the lipstick lines, vertical lines and creases along the lip border developed due to applying lipsticks and glosses.
  • Have lips to their fuller, protruded look even if they were thin and volume less always before.

Types of fillers used in Lip Augmentation – Filler Classification

Dermal Fillers

There are mainly 2 types of dermal fillers that are used for lip augmentation. These includes:


Hyaluronic Acid Fillers

Hyaluronic acid is one of the most popular and preferable lip fillers that are put to use for lip enhancement procedures. Most physicians in foreign countries use this type of fillers on celebrities to offer them a certain look with which they do not have to live by forever. Yes, HA lip fillers are temporary and last somewhere from 6months to 12months or maximum 18months.

You must be curious to know about the science behind these temporary lip fillers which obviously is validated as after all it’s about the most sensuous part of your body. Hyaluronic Acid is a compound that occurs in the body naturally. These compounds actually have a major functioning in the body system that includes transferring nutrients to the skin cells from the blood. So, HA used as a filler is less likely to have an adverse reaction on the skin or body of the recipient.

HA dermal fillers help increasing volume in your lips and make them appear fuller naturally. HA acts as a cushion when it’s injected, supporting and lifting the adjacent skin tissues. It also brings moisture to the skin’s surface, thereby developing a dewy and spry look. Both animal and non-animal sources are available in HA fillers such as Restylane.

There are several types of HA fillers on the market. Among them are some of these popular lip filler products:

  • Juvederm Ultra, Juvederm Ultra Plus
  • Restylane, Restylane-L, Restylane Silk
  • Prevelle Silk
  • Belotero Balance
  • Captique
  • Elevess
  • Esthélis
  • HylaForm

All of these filler types are injected the same way and provide almost similar results. And some contain a local anesthetic— lidocaine.


Pros

  • Still in a gel form, Restylane® Perlane can fill fullness to lips and correct deep lines
  • Adding volume to the lips with minimal complications
  • Can fill even the tiniest of crevices
  • Injection like JUVEDERM VOLBELLA XC into the lips for lip augmentation can create exceptional correction of perioral rhytids in adults above the age of 21.
  • Lasts for a couple of months. This allows you to confirm kind of structure you look to have of your lips.
  • Safer than other lip augmentation techniques like fat or silicone injections, which can be more prone to infection.
  • Pain-free procedure
  • Can be performed quickly, making it perfect cosmetic treatment for busy bees.
  • Can be easily dissolved and reverse the effects of lip augmentation
  • Less expensive than a surgical full lip augmentation.

Cons

  • HA fillers are not permanent. They last from 6 – 18 months, depending on type of filler and need of patient.
  • HA fillers can cause mild to severe swelling, bruising or redness in the treated area. However these side affects do not last more than a week and can be sedated with topical solutions or massaging. Some may also experience bleeding after injection.

Collagen Dermal Fillers

Collagen has once been the most common filler, but is now used less often with the advent of newer, natural and safer options such as ha fillers. Collagen fillers work by injecting the collagen containing substance beneath the patient’s lip to produce natural collagen and elastic tissue. Collagen fillers are just temporary and it’s effects last for a very short period.


Pros of Collagen Dermal Fillers

  • Temporary lip enhancement procedures like collagen or fat injection can be enticing for patients looking to experiment with a voluminous, fuller-lipped look, but not necessarily commit to it.

Cons of collagen dermal fillers

  • Fillers are short lived ( from few days to 3 months)
  • Exposed to side effects like stroke, skin damage, bleeding etc.
  • Can cause to create somewhat artificial full lipped look.

Lip augmentation with fat transfer

For people who wish to have sensuous, substantially fuller lips but are apprehensive of getting injected foreign materials into their body, lip augmentation with fat transfer is a good solution. While other lip fillers, like Restylane and collagen, are commonly extracted from human donor tissue or animal, lip augmentation with fat transfer uses one’s own body tissue, giving off soft, natural-looking results.

This is another great option for dermal fillers for lip enhancement with human fat. Under this procedure, patient with liposuction can have their own tissues removed from the area where it is unwanted and then transferred to the spot where it is wanted (like the lips) using a syringe or blunt needle. Results last from 6 months to more than a year.


Pros

  • Low-risk procedure with No chance of an adverse reaction, bacterial infection or allergic response, because the filler is your own tissue.
  • Other than cosmetically enhancing lips, the procedure is ideal for those wanting to reduce amount of fat present in certain areas of the body, by grafting to chunk-up the lips.
  • Very rare for the patient to reject the tissue, as taken from the patient’s own body.
  • Natural and supple results.
  • Simple outpatient procedure, needing only a few hours recovery time. Patient can go home and return to normal activity.

Cons

  • Risk of re-absorption with both human fat & liquid collagen, so repeated treatments are required to maintain results.
  • Procedure will not produce a palpable effect in the removal site unless performed in conjunction with a body liposuction procedure.
  • Injections leave prick marks, though tiny only (about 0.2 cms in diameter).
  • Being a surgical treatment, certain side effects to occur, at the removal and inject site however are possible
  • Some of the fat cells die during transfer. Only a skilled practitioner can help prevent this from occurring, like injecting the fat at intervals, rather than all at once.

Lip Implants

The procedure of Lip implants is used to provide permanent lip augmentation with more refined results than fat transfer or collagen fillers, making them one of the solutions for individuals with thin lips. Though implants are also available for lip augmentation, but Lip Implant Procedure is not performed very often. The surgical process starts by making small incisions in the lips, most commonly at the corners of the mouth. However, it is not necessarily to incise on the corners only and can be made elsewhere on the lips, depending on the particular technique being used. Then a thin tunnel is created to accommodate the implant and also to make sure that the lip implant may be placed appropriately and provide a balanced and natural-feel. After a tunnel is made, the implant will be inserted next and doctor will thread it through the lip. Finally, the lip implant will be trimmed to the correct length, and the cuts will be closed. The surgical process takes about an hour.

The 3 most popular types of lip implants are

a. GORE-TEX®
b. SoftForm
c. AlloDerm®.

Each of these, functions slight differently to provide patients with an altered lip shape, structure and volume. The right kind of implant for you would be identified by your experienced doctor on the basis of your needs and skin condition.


Pros

  • Great option for extremely thin lips.
  • Does not intervene with smiling, speaking, drinking, kissing, etc.
  • The natural lip tissue grows, with the micropores present in implants like GORE-TEX®, thus effectively making the implants a part of the lip structure.
  • Lip Implants like Softform have a tubular shape that allows tissue to have internal growth that reportedly gives better anchoring and reduce the risk of migration.
  • Lip implant like AlloDerm® are made from donated skin which is malleable and soft and thus offer the same feel to lips after insertion.
  • Use of AlloDerm® implant is relatively safe as it is extracted from human tissue and hence will not instigate an allergic reaction. Moreover, manufacture and use of any human-tissue products is under strict control of FDA to make sure consumer safety.
  • Those looking for a more permanent solution to lip augment may opt for a surgical lip implant procedure.
  • Provides longer-lasting results than fillers, which are ultimately absorbed into the body.

Cons

  • Permanent Lip Implants offers Permanent Lip Augmentation that can lead to implant migration, rejection, rigidity or scarring of the lips. However, these risks can only be greatly reduced choosing a skilled surgeon to perform lip implant procedure.
  • Once lip implants like SoftForm & GORE-TEX® areinserted , you may feel stiff in the lip. This rigidity happens due to implant being made of the same non-reactive polymer substance that is used in raincoats and tents, though medical-grade version of ePTFE. However, some patients become accustomed to the implant in no time.
  • Risk of side effects and infection is much greater as compared to other lip augment procedures.
  • Results are not always desirable and cannot be undone easily.
  • An expensive procedure in comparison to fillers and lip laser augmenting.
  • May be noticeable in the lip after the surgery.
  • May require replacement, removal or adjustment in the future. In some cases, lip implants may become crooked, disproportionate or get dislocate. In others, the implant can jolt out its way of the skin necessitating them to be removed.

Conclusion:

Implants and Fat injections are surgical methods to plump and protrude lips. But both the procedures aren't used much today because of the results that differ in patients. Some people even end up with duck lips which are do not only look cosmetically canny but are not even easily re-created back in shape or desired structure. There is also a higher risk of side effects associated to these procedures being invasive in nature.

Therefore, dermal fillers, specifically the HA fillers are gaining all the acceptance and reverence in the cosmetic sector as a safe and realistic lip augmentation process.


Uses of hyaluronic acid fillers


HA based fillers can be used to enhance the skin's contour and reduce depressions in the skin due to injury, scars, lines or aging. You can see exceptionally noticeable improvements for:

  • Adding fullness to lips
  • Redefining lip border
  • Correcting deep lines, wrinkles and folds
  • Deep smile lines that flows from side of the nose to corners of the mouth
  • Smoothing Smoker's lines; vertical lines on the mouth
  • Cheek depressions
  • Worry lines that runs horizontally through forehead
  • Crow's feet at the corner of your eyes
  • Frown lines between the eyebrows
  • Marionette lines at corners of the mouth
  • To correct volume loss in the dorsum of the hands
  • Acne scars and some facial scars including burns, and those caused by wounds

Benefits of hyaluronic acid fillers

  • Control over lip volume: The amount of material injected can be controlled, so the physician has better control over how much lip volume is produced.
  • Reversible HA: doctor can undo a HA filler if not as per expectation.
  • Steady sessions of treatment: The injections can be administered steadily during different visits until the wishful outcome is achieved.
  • Less Lumps & Bumps: HA creates less lumps and bumps, and is much easier to control via injection, which is not possible with the ‘semi-permanent’ synthetic fillers. No bumps produces no or little bruising and the outcomes remains a bit longer in some cases.
  • Bumps dissolve easily: Any lumps and bumps produced by the movement of the lips can be dissolved quite easily.
  • Less bruising: HA leads to less swelling & bruising as compared to other dermal fillers.
  • Reasonably lasting results. The results though not permanent, but are reasonably long-lasting, so neither are they too short or too long-lived.
  • Allergic reaction unlikely. Because HA fillers are made from natural substances similar to those found in the body, they are unlikely to result in any kind of allergic reaction. But anyone allergic to lidocaine, should mention to the practitioner before being treated.
  • Immediate return to normal activities: Procedure of HA dermal is completely nonsurgical, so one can resume to daily activities right after. Only one-day return if sedated.

What to expect during the procedure

Fillers for lip augmentation can be quickly conducted in a clinician’s office with little to no downtime. Implants or Fat injection is the exception, because the procedures need a small area of liposuction to derive the fat from another part of the body before the injection can take place.

Before the lip filler injections are made, a local anesthetic or topical agent may be applied to suppress the sensation or discomfort. The injection itself feels like a pin-prick, followed by a sting as the filler is injected.Most people dread about getting injections in a superbly soft area like lips. You can choose to have your lips sedated prior injection with a local topical anesthetic or dental nerve block. The injector can numb the area surrounding your lips with an injection into your gums. Or if you fear injection or look for additional comfort then you can opt for a numbing cream. You can choose to have application of topical anesthetic to your lips before your treatment, to disdain the sensation. The numbing will begin to belittle just after about 15 minutes.

After cautiously marking the areas to be injected, syringes are used precisely to inject the material into your lips.

Following injection, ice may be massaged for ease.

You should be able to see a difference immediately. Once you have healed, your lips should feel natural and puffier.


What are the side effects of lip augmentation?

Side effects and complications of HA fillers are temporary and should only last a few days. They may include:

  • Bruising and Swelling
  • Bleeding at the injection sites
  • Redness and tenderness at the injection site
  • Re-start of cold sores or fever blisters (herpes simplex) on the lips or area around the lips

More serious side effects or risks, though rare may include:

  • Extreme prolonged bruising or swelling lasting more than 10 days
  • Allergic reaction causing itching or redness around the lips
  • Irregular Lips or asymmetry (parts of lips are different sizes)
  • Lumps in the lips
  • Injection into a blood vessel, leading to tissue loss
  • Ulceration
  • Scarring, or rigidity of the lip

Call your clinician immediately if you see severe swelling or develop a fever.

Fillers are generally priced as per syringe injected. However, the cost of lip augmentation varies depending on the:

  • Type of product and procedure performed
  • How much material is required
  • Doctor's experience and repute
  • Location of clinic

Can doctor undo hyaluronic acid fillers if i do not like the results or whatever the reason?

You can completely erase out the HA fillers if you don't like how your lips turn out to be for whatever reason. Because HA is purely temporary, your clinician can inject an eraser enzyme called hyaluronidase into the treated area. The enzyme will fully dissolve the filler within five minutes. If you're unhappy with the initial results you can just go back and have it dissolved. On the contrary, the permanent and semi-permanent fillers, while beguiling, are not reversible and not much can be done to fix them.

All the HA based fillers that are in use , such as—Volbella, Voluma, Restylane, Juvederm, Belotero, — can all dissolve with hyaluronidase," an enzyme that melts and deletes hyaluronic acid safely and quickly.


Who are the ideal candidates for lip augmentation?

20 things you should know before getting lip injections

Here is all about you to know when, how and whether to go for lip augmentation injections. You will then be in a state to assess your expectation, preparations from the procedure.

Natural Feel fuller lips: If done appropriately, with right technique and correct product for the need, the lips with injections don't feel any different than real fuller lips. Not even when you're kissing.

HA fillers are most natural all-purpose temporary lip filler: Most of the doctors swear by the favorite formula they like to use. The simplest and simply natural temporary filler is hyaluronic acid (HA) such as Juvederm, Restylane. Juvéderm Volbella, one of the newest HA dermal fillers is uniquely formulated for the lips, is ideal for adding both the fullness to the lips and targeting fine lines around the area as well as leaving a natural sheen.

Immediate Results: dermal fillers show up the results almost immediately. Your injected lips will feel a little swollen at first but the effects of the fillers would be seen pretty quickly. The filler recipient need to show some patience to the lips, giving 24 hours to settle and the swelling to alleviate. Then you'll be finding your filled-up lips as they will be for the next several months.

Not only One but You Can Achieve Different Looks: Fillers are not incorporated just at the single site of the lips to protrude them. Injections can be performed at different areas of your lip to improve your dormant best features and to create a lip shape that is uniquely desirable to you. For example, if you want to have heart shaped lips and your lips are under constructive for the same, fillers can be used to construct the structure and create the shape as accordingly. Consider taking in images of lip shapes, structure and sizes that you find alluring to have. This will assist your practitioner towards your target lip enhancement goals.

Price-cut might not leave you Peppy: It is as simple as that— the insta look does not come cheap. We're all constantly overwhelmed with sensuous pictures of women with really big, cosmetically correct and sensually formed lips, but had no idea the money that goes out to actually achieve it. Choose a reputable dermal filler product that’s high quality and comes with a well documented track record because not all injectables are created equally. When you’re injecting filler in any part of your body that’s going to change your appearance - and be there for a specified time span - don’t cut curves in interest of convenience or cash!

One syringe or cc, of HA filler Juvederm Volbella is used in technically less than a teaspoon of substance, but it is strewn in a way that make results evident the first time around—though not wildly drastic. On the other hand, using a facsimile of filler at a lower price would only impair and contaminate your lips. Dermal filler injections are a cosmetic treatment, but just like buying a bottle of soft-drink or new lip gloss, people can now have access to dermal lip fillers in local malls or commercial complex.

Not Price but Practitioner is the key to successful lip filling: More than price, the clinical training of those performing the dermal filler - along with the medical standards upheld by the clinic - is of utmost importance. So, the price is actually not the parameter to get successful lip augmentation but it is the skill and knowledge of injector that makes it cheerful.

Each filler can obtain different lip looks: Gone are the times when females had collagen as the only solution to lip enhancement. In its place, a range of dermal fillers have become apparent that are induced of hyaluronic acid, a material that occurs naturally in our bodies and is greatly attracted to water and binds to moisture.

Choosing a suitable type is best left to the practitioner based on your needs, but the mishmash is huge. For example, a voluminous, pillowy, youthful, appearance is best achieved with Juvederm, while Restylane can be used to get lips fuller, thanks to its smaller molecules. For older women," Volbella, is good to fill in lines and wrinkles around the lips.

You don't have to go all blown up: You can choose which areas of your lips you'd like the concentration on and in. Whether you want to get done the lips, just the upper lip, or only the middle of the top lip, or just the sides of lower lip, you can fill up from wherever you want and your physician’s decision will best complement the rest of your facial features.

Fillers are not for always: It depends on the dermal filler product you choose, but most commonly last around six months to 12 months. This states that if you adore your first results; take as much images as it does not remain forever. As far as anything you can do to extend the duration of filler, there's really not much since everybody assimilates differently. Body fat also alters the lapse life of fillers. HA fillers for lip augment remains effectual for about six months. But if your body is on the thinner side, you'll assimilate the concentrated material faster and the injections won't last as long.

You Can Go in Interim Periods: If you’re looking for an indistinct and moderate alteration in your lip shape or size, you can splinter your injections over a period of intervals rather than getting all in one go. You need not have a substantial volume increase in just one sitting – Your injector will adjust the amount of filler to be administered to suit your unique cosmetic goals in set stages.

It Won’t Restrict Your Life: Most aesthetic procedures or facial treatments should take about 30 minutes. Although a little swelling, redness or bruising can occur, most people can resume to their routine lives right after the injection with little-to-no downtime, however, shouldn't go about making any big plans (like a wedding) for at least 72 hours in case you bruise.

It’s Unrecognizable: No one will be able to know about the injectable in your lips by seeing or feeling your lips. Most people who’ve had went under lip fillers are able to perform normal everyday functions, such as drinking, speaking, kissing, LOL!, with few visible differences. The lips should also feel as soft and supple as your natural tissues once the swelling has subsided.

Prepare Weeks Beforehand for Special Events: Many people like to undergo a lip job for big events, such as wedding, first date, graduation ceremony, birthdays or prom nights. If this is the case for you, make sure to get the fillers couple of weeks beforehand – this will provide your lips ample time to recover, swelling to settle down, and look natural on the day of event. The unfortunate thing you would not want to happen is to appear with swollen lips.

You might look like you’ve done bouts of boxing: Some patients step out from their filler injections without a mark, while others can experience bruised and swollen lips for several days after treatment. If you’re susceptible of bruising, quit the use of vitamin E supplements and fish oil a week before. Most bruising from injectables dull down after 5-7 days.

Massaging to calm lumps and bumps: As swelling calms, it can sometimes experience small bumps, lumps or unevenness under the lip tissue. You can learn from your clinician to gently massage these irregularities to taper them off. The filler is tactile after treatment and can be shifted swiftly, so be cautious to smooth it out, rather than push too tough and dislodge it.Your doctor will ice massage your lips for 10 minutes after the treatment and then let you walk of about your day.

Halt on Mid-night cravings: you are to avoid eating after midnight before procedure. Physician may need to incubate patients and any food in stomach can suck in to go into the lungs, which could cause infections. Also, before undergoing fillers, one should be in good health. Medications like ibuprofen, niacin, aspirin, fish oil, cod liver oil, vitamin A and green tea needs to be discontinued for at least two weeks prior procedure. These medications are known to activate bleeding.

Exercise on the day of treatment is harmful: Exercise on the day of the procedure is not permitted. You particularly should skip activities that increase blood flow to your face, like getting a facial, doing facial exercises, talking or grinding too much.

You don’t like, Dissolve them: Yes! If your lips are not what you have expected them to be after the injection, then you can visit your clinician and get them dissolved. Your real lips will remain unaffected and will be as they were earlier.

Don’t go too far: Aim for a hydrated, natural look that you can bear for years to come - rather than a trout-pout, blotch lip look like Vanessa Ferlito.

Choose an honest clinician. It’s crucial to choose a clinician who will give you a truthfully fair n square indication of the outcomes you can expect - who can tell you if they can or can’t achieve what you desire, and can advice that you retreat when you might be going too far! So all of you must be curious to know how these celebrities have overdone fillers when they approach to the best of doctors. You may think “why Goldie Hawn in First Wives Club wasn’t told by her injector she would look ridiculous?” Simply because, the more filler you have, the more money your injector makes - so you want one that targets to achieve natural results, and declines to rip you off if you’re longing from a bit too much lip-lechery.
