Lip Enhancement Filler

Overview of the surgery:
Lip enhancement filler can usually plump thin lips giving a voluptuous look. The most common way to increase lip size is with injectable fillers. The most common types are fat, collagen and restylane.

For collagen injections, a skin test is performed weeks before the procedure. This helps determine if any allergic reaction could possibly occur. If the test finds there is no risk of allergy, the collagen is then injected. During fat injections, both the donor and the recipient sites are treated with anesthesia. Then, fat is withdrawn with a cannula (a surgical suction instrument) or a syringe. When harvested and prepared, the fat is injected into the patient’s lips.

For Restylane, no skin test is required. The gel is injected into the inside of the upper or lower lips in tiny amounts with a very fine needle. As a result, it adds volume and shape to the lips

Duration of the surgery:
Lip augmentation with injectable fillers is a quick and easy procedure.  It takes about 15-30minutes.

Postoperative care:
The lip augmentation recovery process following lip enhancement with injectable lip fillers generally requires a day’s rest before patients can return to normal activities. After any type of lip enhancement procedure swelling and bruising can be expected.  Post-operative discomfort can be controlled with over-the-counter pain relievers.
Recovery period:
The results of lip augmentation using injectable fillers are apparent immediately. Your initial appearance after treatment with any filler may include:
·         Mild swelling or bruising
·         Temporary numbness or redness
·         An “over-filled” appearance to treated areas
These conditions can be alleviated with topical icing and will improve within a matter of hours or just a few days. When fat is the injected filler, these conditions may persist for a few weeks.
Possible risk and complications:
Complications from fillers are uncommon. The risks vary depending on the specific filler used and the relative permanence of the filler substance. Complications includes: Infection at the injection site, asymmetry, bleeding, bruising, and swelling, skin might die (skin necrosis), skin rash, itching, skin redness, skin sensitivity.
Anesthesia use:
Anesthesia is typically not necessary for the procedure because the filler usually includes lidocaine or another topical anesthetic.
Hospital admission:
It depends on your preferences as well as your surgeon’s. Lip enhancement filler can be performed on an out patient basis, in the hospital, or in an ambulatory surgical suite.

Preparation before Surgery:
You and your surgeon will discuss any past treatment with injectable fillers, facial shaping or Botox® therapy or other facial rejuvenation procedures, medical conditions, drug allergies and medical treatments. The doctor will also evaluate your general health status and discuss the options available to you for facial rejuvenation.
  • Assessment of the medical history (any allergies, serious medical condition and all medications taken both prescribed and non-prescribed), physical examination, and laboratory tests will be performed during consultation.
  • Blood and urine samples will be collected for routine preoperative laboratory tests.
  • Smoking must be avoided for about 3-4 weeks prior to surgery, as nicotine interferes with circulation and will greatly affect healing process.
  • You will likely to be asked to stop drinking alcohol, a week before the surgery and throughout your recovery period.
  • Avoid taking any medications such as hormones, anticoagulants, anabolic steroids and supplements at least 4-6 weeks to prevent complicating medical factors prior to surgery. Avoid taking aspirin, anti-inflammatory drugs and herbal supplements as they can increase bleeding.
