Augmentation of the lips using non-invasive methods.
The Augmentation of the Lips with Fillers is indicated in order to remodel and/or enhancethe volume of the upper and lower lips.
There are several methods.
- USE OF FILLERS:
This treatment is simple, immediate and painless. It is carried out by injecting specific substances at the level of the lips.
Some of these fillers are permanent (metacrilato, etc.) while others are RESORBABLE (hyaluronic acid, polylactic acid, hydroxyapatite). In the case of the latter the procedure is repeated over time: generally after 8-12 months.
Among all the fillers the most preferable is non-animal stabilized Hyaluronic Acid (NASHA): this is a substance that is naturally present in our organism and as such it does not require any tolerance tests (allergy tests). Moreover, the use of this product has a bio-revitalization effect on body tissue as it stimulates the endogenous production of hyaluronic acid. This results in a better hydration of the tissues.
In the case of Lipofilling the augmentation of the lips is obtained through a small fat transfer from the abdomen or the inferior limbs of the patient using a micro-cannula. The fat, after it has been spun and purified, is injected into the lips. The adipose cells will then stabilize themselves permanently even though some of them will be reabsorbed.
The Augmentation of the Lips with Fillers is carried out as an outpatient and in both cases it is painless.
The patient may have a slight redness and swelling on the lips for 3-4 days, but they may however resume their normal activities immediately.
