Lip augmentation can noticeably improve the appearance. Aesthetic medicine easily corrects pinched lips, redefines the Cupid’s bow’s curvature and the outline of the lips and replumps them if they are too thin.
The aim is to harmonise the features without radically changing the expression of the face and to avoid a “trout pout” at all costs.
The principle consists in injecting a biodegradable filler on the inside of the lips and into the groove which separates the skin from the pink mucosa. This filler is carefully selected by the physician from a range of biodegradable products which are mostly based on hyaluronic acid (natural substance found in the body).
Duration of treatment
According to the product injected, 1 or 2 sessions spaced by an interval of 2 to 3 weeks are necessary to obtain a lasting result. Each session takes about 30 minutes.
The effect is immediate. A slight swelling may persist during the first week. The biodegradable product has a durability of about 6 to 12 months.
