Lip shape correction
Shakespeare believed that «for beautiful lips, speak only words of kindness», and as Vremya Krasoty agrees, yet our surgeons and aesteticians know several other ways for make your lips perfect. Thin, poorly defined lips may be hereditary or the results of aging. After lip enhancement with injections, your lips will be fuller and have a better contour. It is widely noted that fuller lips make face look younger, but this cosmetological manipulation requires advanced eye for proportion and good taste. This is why we strongly recommend to address Vremya Krasoty doctors for any lip treatment.
This is a cosmetic procedure that gives fuller, plumper lips.
These days, an injectable dermal filler is the most commonly used method of lip augmentation.
There are many types of dermal fillers that can be injected in your lips and around your mouth. But the most common fillers today are products that contain natural substance found in the body - hilauronic acid. It helps increase volume in your lips.
These types of dermal fillers are sometimes called "hyaluronic acid fillers.»
The most durable way to augmnet a lip is to use body’s own fat - this is called lipostructure. The pain is usually minimal and most patients consider the process more uncomfortable and weird-feeling, but not impossible to endure.
A permanent method of augmenting the lips is accomplished by surgically advancing the lip forward, with incisions placed inside the mouth. A dermal-fat graft, taken from the deeper layers of the skin, may then be positioned under the mucosa (the lining of the lip) to add additional plumpness. Another form of lip enhancement is to insert lip implants - they can be inserted through tiny incisions inside the corners of the mouth. There are many natural or synthetic implant options available. Your surgeon will discuss which option is best for you. And finally there is a lip lift - removing extra skin and lifting the lips will help those with loose skin or those who have a downward sloping mouth. To increase the upper lip, an incision is made under the nose and the skin is shortened to pull up the lips. Other lift techniques can shorten the upper lip to expose more teeth. To lift a downward turning mouth, small incisions are made on the side of the mouth and the extra skin is removed. Very small sutures are used for this procedure and removed four to five days later.
The filler injection manipulation if usually done under the partial anaesthesia and lasts no more then 20 minutes. If lipostructure is implied, then the sequence of events is as follows - a small amount of fat is harvested from the thighs, the buttocks or the abdomen by suction through a 3 mm incision (liposuction). The fat particles are purified and injected in the lip. Treated lips swell tremendously for two to three weeks, and it takes three to four months before their reach their final size. This operation can be performed under local or general anaesthesia. In most patients this treatment is permanent, although partial loss of volume over time is possible, also it should be clear that the aftermath of the operation is fully visible for a week or so.
Results, special care and full recovery
The aftermath from nonsurgical options (filler injections and permanent makeup) is minimal. Some bruising or swelling may be expericenced which will subside with time. Vremya Krasoty surgeon will tell you how long it will be before your return to your normal level of activity and work. He/ she will give you detailed instructions about your postsurgical care, including information about normal symptoms you will experience and what is even more important - potential signs of complication. It is vitally important that you follow all patient care instructions provided by your Vremya Krasoty surgeon.
You will experience postoperative bruising and swelling, with mild to moderate discomfort for a day or two. A cold compress can be applied to the operative site to reduce swelling, bruising and pain. You may be restricted to a liquid-only diet for one or two days. You will most likely be mobile the day of your surgery, but your activities must be restricted.
