Many people are not blessed with all of the physical features they desire. With celebrities appearing in magazines and on TV with suddenly fuller lips, individuals may feel as though their own just are not sufficient enough.
It is rumored that many of these celebrities are turning to lip injections and lip augmentations. Injecting synthetic substances into the lip can minimize lines, make the entire mouth look younger, and can give a patient a more youthful appearance.
Factors like smoking, aging and the environment can make the mouth look older with lines and wrinkles and these are effects that can be reversed.
The Benefits of Lip Injections
Natural feeling to the lips and mouth is important to patients that are considering lip augmentation. Fortunately, synthetic lip fillers that are put into the lips by a trained practitioner via a needle offer a natural look and feel. The body eventually absorbs the materials and sometimes a second or third procedure must be done to upkeep the look. However, each injection can last a number of months before anything additional is necessary.
Lip Augmentation Recovery
Lip injections are not considered a serious cosmetic procedure.
Minimal side effects may occur, such as:
- Slight swelling
- Redness at the injection site
The side effects of lip injections are minimal since the procedures only take a few minutes to perform. Generally, a surgeon will apply a topical anesthetic to the patient’s lips to numb the area for a pain-free process. Sometimes the injections themselves contain local anesthetic so no topical numbing is required. Patients can resume normal activity the same day as this outpatient procedure.
