The lips are considered to be one of the most attractive parts of a woman’s body. In fact,
during an initial encounter with the opposite sex, the lips often become the focus of attention.
It’s no wonder then why lip augmentation has become very popular in recent years, and with this
comes various techniques on how to achieve a more attractive pair of lips.
Thanks to medical advancements, we have now moved away from basic lip volumizing to creating different shapes and contours according to the patient’s request. Common requests from our patients often involve the creation of the Cupid’s bow in the upper lip and lip eversion to achieve a sexy pout.
At our clinic, lip augmentation is done through filler or fat injections.
Filler injections is a very common way to enhance the lips’ shape and volume. Fillers tend to
last for 9-12 months. While the procedure is fairly straightforward, complications like bruising
and swelling may arise due to the inadvertent injury of the fine blood vessels surrounding the
lips during the injection. To prevent such injuries from happening, we use an advanced
illumination device called the Accuvein, which reveals the location of blood vessels. Thus, our
lip filler injections result in minimal bruising.
Fat injections, on the other hand, are more invasive than fillers but offer a more lasting solution. The procedure has two steps: First, excess fat is harvested from areas like the arms and tummy, and purified. The purified fat is then injected into the lips to achieve a fuller look. The procedure is performed under local anesthesia and takes around an hour to complete.
