Lip augmentation procedure in Kyiv

Lip augmentation is an aesthetic procedure that allows you to fill in the missing volume and give a seductive look to the face. Most often, patients who have naturally thin lips turn to the services of doctors. Sometimes the need for correction arises due to the asymmetry of a smile or an inharmonious combination – one lip is much thinner than the other.

In recent years, the procedure for lip augmentation has become one of the most popular in Ukraine. This is due to the fact that such a correction gives the appearance more gloss and expressiveness. Middle-aged women, thanks to lip augmentation, additionally receive a rejuvenating effect.

In this article, we will look at all the facts about lip augmentation: price, preparation and recommendations after the procedure. We will tell you where to find a reliable specialist and what materials are better to use. You will learn what you need to pay attention to in order to get the desired result and not be disappointed.

Why women like easy lip augmentation

From the point of view of psychology, lips are one of the most attractive parts of the body. A showy smile adds confidence. Women who have used lip fillers give positive feedback. They talk about external transformation and self-esteem.

In the beauty industry, non-surgical lip plasty has found a lot of fans. This procedure is an opportunity to add a piquant touch to your image without consequences. Create a more attractive appearance. But it must be remembered that even in aesthetic cosmetology, any procedure must be taken seriously. With the right approach, you can get much more than just plump lips. Otherwise, errors in the choice of material and an unqualified master can aggravate the patient’s health.

How men perceive women with enlarged lips

In relation to men to plastic lips, opinions are divided. Some argue that girls with overly pumped lips cause irritation due to an unnatural look. Others appreciate the desire of a woman to make lips, as there is an association with “kissed lips”.

Some men decide on their own lip correction. Often this is due to the need to eliminate the defect. Here the problem is solved by the same technique as for women – the use of a filler to replenish the volume. For example, an increase in only the upper lip will create a more harmonious appearance.

Some men do not realize at all that the woman has been corrected. If the patient turned to a competent master, then the result can be as natural as possible. The main difference between moderately inflated lips is skin hydration, juiciness, shape improvement. It all depends on the amount of the drug used and the result that the woman wants to get.

Lip augmentation rules: what clients need to know

In addition to the natural desire of a woman to look beautiful, there are professional criteria for assessing the beauty of the lips. Experts consider the proportionality of the upper and lower lips to be the most important parameters. What doctors look for before making recommendations for correction:

  • approximately the upper lip should be 1.5 times smaller in volume than the lower;
  • evaluate how clearly defined the contour.

An experienced doctor will be able to advise a woman which technique to increase volume is best applied in her case. It is important to take into account the individual characteristics of the skin and facial features.

To get the best results for lips, you should take into account the additional benefits of the procedure. High-quality work of a cosmetologist guarantees a woman:

  • smoothing purse-string wrinkles;
  • deep skin hydration;
  • general rejuvenating effect (puffy lips are more common in young girls);
  • focusing attention on an expressive mouth, which distracts from other imperfections (large nose, wide forehead, etc.);
  • face harmonization.

High-quality materials for injectable lip augmentation are a guarantee of the safety of the procedure. Natural components that are part of professional fillers do not cause side effects.

What do doctors use for lip augmentation?

To make it easier to understand the methods and materials for lip correction, it is necessary to understand the terminology. Doctors are guided by concepts that are often misunderstood by patients. Let’s consider the main ones.

Lip fillers

These are filler preparations in the form of a gel that the doctor injects under the skin in the lip area of ​​​​the patient. Thanks to such injections, the doctor can give the lips the desired shape or volume. A synonym for the concept of “fillers”, which is often found in articles and colloquial use, is a gel correction of lip volume. 

Fillers are divided into two groups:

  • based on hyaluronic acid;
  • based on calcium hydroxyapatite.

Features of hyaluronic fillers

Gel fillers based on hyaluronic acid are biocompatible, that is, they are well accepted by the body. The drug is distributed without lumps and irregularities. Its gradual decay occurs naturally in the process of biodegradation.

Hyaluronic acid is a natural substance found in the human body. With age, there is less hyaluronic acid in the tissues, which affects the condition of the skin. Dryness, sagging in some areas of the face is a key sign of its lack. Cracks and peeling can also form on the lips. Fillers with hyaluron solve this problem in a complex way – they provide deep hydration to the skin of the lips and increase their volume.

Gel based on hyaluronic acid gives effect from 6 months to 1.5 years. It depends on the individual characteristics of the organism.

Calcium hydroxyapatite fillers

Calcium hydroxyapatite triggers the synthesis of elastin and collagen, which form a framework that restores the lost shape. Hydroxyapatite-based fillers are on average eliminated from the body after 36 months.

Fillers with hydroxyapatite are biocompatible with the body. But for the first volume increase session, doctors most often recommend an injection with hyaluron in a volume of up to 1 ml. 

Hyaluronic acid for lips

When patients talk about hyaluronic acid injections for lip augmentation, they mean the use of a filler. This is a dense gel with which the doctor can increase the volume of a woman’s lips to achieve the desired effect. This substance binds water molecules, giving the tissues volume and elasticity.

As a rule, specialists often use hyaluron-based fillers. This is the most natural drug for the human body. It does not cause allergies.

The use of a filler with hyaluron allows not only to increase the volume, but also to achieve deep hydration. Thus, the problem of peeling and dry lips is solved. The skin looks well-groomed even without the use of balms, gloss and lipstick.

Botox lips

The most common mistake is the misconception about using Botox for lip augmentation. Botox preparations are used to correct wrinkles and smooth out creases on the skin of the face.

Botox (botox) is a botulinum toxin that is used in medicine and cosmetology to solve a wide range of problems. Narrow-profile doctors use Botox preparations to treat neurological pathologies (tremor in Parkinson’s disease and Tourette’s syndrome). In the complex therapy of obesity, Botox is injected into the stomach to block the feeling of hunger. For cosmetologists, botox is the main material for anti-age procedures with an instant effect.

To correct the shape of the lips, Botox can be applied in the region of the orbicular muscle of the mouth to lift the corners of the mouth. This process belongs to anti-aging procedures and has nothing to do with increasing the volume of the lips. 

Lip lipofilling

The procedure for correcting the shape of the lips with the help of the patient’s fatty tissues (adipocytes) is called lipofilling. It takes only 1-2 ml of fat to increase the volume. Doctors take fat from the abdomen or thighs of the patient, which is processed in a special way and then injected with a thin needle into the enlargement area.

Lipofilling for lip augmentation is a minimally invasive procedure. It does not require extensive surgical intervention and a long period of rehabilitation. Usually the effect of plump lips lasts from 3 to 5 years.

 Disadvantages of lipofilling for lip augmentation:

  • bruising and swelling persist longer than after applying the gel;
  • in some cases, patients note a decrease in the sensitivity of the skin in the mouth area;
  • due to the high probability of uneven introduction of fat, tuberosity may appear.

Lip electroporation

In cosmetology, electroporation of the lips is understood as the introduction of nutrients into the deep layers of the skin by means of electrical impulses. This is a non-traumatic procedure without punctures and incisions. This method is essentially non-injection lip mesotherapy. That is, the process of saturating the skin with vitamins and moisturizing components takes place. 

Lip electroporation is a cosmetic procedure that is not aimed at increasing volume. This is one of the misconceptions among women who consider electroporation a way to pump up their lips. 

Lip plastic surgery methods

There are two main methods of lip augmentation – it is injection and surgical. In the vast majority of cases, women prefer injections. This is a low-traumatic procedure, during which the doctor injects the drug into the lips of the patient with a special needle. It is enough to use local anesthesia. 

Cheiloplasty is a surgical procedure for lip augmentation. This procedure belongs to plastic surgery. The doctor changes the shape and volume by manipulating the circular muscle of the mouth and mucous membranes. This method is more often used in case of mechanical injury or congenital defect in the mouth area. 

If a woman considers the option of lip augmentation solely as an aesthetic procedure, the best option would be the use of a filler. This method does not require long-term rehabilitation. After the procedure, swelling is observed, which disappears completely in 2-3 days. In the case of cheiloplasty, the edema will last for about two weeks.

Preparing the patient for lip augmentation

First of all, the doctor checks to see if there is currently any gel in the lips of the woman who wishes to have the procedure. If lip augmentation is not performed for the first time, it is necessary to find out which drug was used earlier (biphasic or monophasic gel). The choice of filler will depend on this, so as not to spoil the result and not harm the health of the patient. 

The doctor also examines for the presence of a herpes infection. If herpes is present on the lips, the augmentation procedure must be rescheduled. Otherwise, the introduction of the gel will increase the inflammatory process. 

The patient also needs to know if she is allergic to any anesthetics. If, for example, after the introduction of the drug in the dental office, an allergy occurs, you should remember the name of the drug. At a preliminary consultation with a beautician, you need to report the presence of such a problem. This will avoid anaphylactic shock and other unpleasant consequences.

According to the American Society for Aesthetic and Plastic Surgery, allergic reactions can range from prolonged redness, swelling, or itching to induration at the injection site. Other possible complications include bleeding, lip asymmetry, migration, and extrusion of the implant material.

How is the lip augmentation procedure performed?

To get detailed advice over the phone, leave a request on the site. The medical coordinator will contact you and answer all your questions. 

Main steps:

  1. Face-to-face consultation with a doctor in the clinic. If there are no contraindications, a day is appointed for the procedure.
  2. In the cosmetologist’s office, the patient is being prepared with the use of anesthesia.
  3. The process of drug administration in comfortable conditions.
  4. In conclusion, the doctor kneads the gel in the lips, applies a special ointment. Most often it is Bepanthen after lip augmentation, but other means can be applied.
  5. The patient receives recommendations for lip care at home. Hospitalization is not required.

Tips after lip augmentation

To minimize discomfort, it is necessary to refrain from exposure to high or low ambient temperatures. That is, do not visit the sauna, do not stay outside for a long time if the air temperature is close to +30 or frost. 

The main restrictions in the first days after the procedure include:

  • refrain from active facial expressions – do not smile widely, do not open your mouth strongly;
  • do not eat hard foods (for example, apples) – avoid straining the lips when biting;
  • eschedule a meeting with a dentist;
  • do not drink alcohol, so as not to cause excessive blood thinning, and as a result, the rapid removal of the gel from the body.

It is acceptable to use a cream with panthenol to eliminate irritation on the lips. Which one to choose the drug for application, you need to find out from the beautician.

Lip correction after augmentation

Depending on the composition of the gel, correction may be required 2-4 weeks after the first treatment. To get the desired result immediately, you need to contact proven specialists with medical education. Then the next procedure will be scheduled 10-12 months after the first visit. Sometimes the effect lasts longer and re-treatment can be delayed up to 18 months. 

Contraindications for lip augmentation

The main contraindications doctors include: 

  • herpetic eruptions;
  • active inflammatory process in the body;
  • the presence of infectious pathologies;
  • blood diseases, clotting problems;
  • malignant tumor;
  • pregnancy and breastfeeding.

What is a filler?

The word “fill” is translated from English as “to fill”. Therefore, a filler is called a gel filler, which is injected.

Beauticians widely use fillers to eliminate wrinkles and folds in the area of ​​the nasolabial triangle, to give volume to certain parts of the face – lips and cheekbones. 

How many days does swelling disappear after lip augmentation?

Puffiness in the mouth area goes away on its own within 2-4 days. 

Is lumps after lip augmentation normal? 

Normally, mild tuberosity resolves on its own within a few days. If the patient has lumps, seals or bumps for a long time, this may indicate the formation of fibrosis at the puncture sites. To fix the problem, you need to see a doctor again. Do not self-medicate! 

How long does lip augmentation last? 

The effect in most cases lasts at least 6 months. Less commonly, the volume persists for 1.5 years. It depends on the individual characteristics of the organism – how quickly the gel will dissolve in the lips. 

How long can you do lip correction?

If the patient has asymmetry, which is difficult to correct in 1 session, a second procedure will be scheduled after 3-4 weeks. Otherwise, the timing of the second session will depend on the decrease in the effect of the gel. Usually it is 6-12 months. Also, the doctor can carry out a contour correction in the style of “Cupid’s Bow”. 

How can lips be enlarged?

In modern cosmetology, doctors use safe and proven products. These include Juvederm fillers (Juvederm). They are approved by the FDA, which controls the quality of medicines around the world.

What happens if you fill your lips with a filler? 

As a rule, doctors follow these principles:

  • thin lips take no more than 1 ml of the drug;
  • on plumper lips up to 3 ml, as volume needs to be increased.

The initial result will depend on the individual wishes of the client. The doctor, first of all, focuses on the safety of the material for the patient.

How to increase lips without harm to health? 

To get high-quality service and the appearance of your dreams, contact only qualified specialists. Coolaser Clinic doctors regularly undergo additional training to work with new drugs. This guarantees the high quality of lip augmentation services in Kyiv. 

What should be done after lip augmentation? 

All recommendations are given by the doctor. When contacting a specialized clinic, the patient receives a list of all possible drugs that are acceptable to reduce unpleasant symptoms. 

The key recommendation is not to give a load that can lead to skin injury immediately after the procedure. 

Can I smoke after lip augmentation? 

Manufacturers of drugs for lip augmentation recommend quitting smoking for 1-2 days after the procedure. Nicotine causes vasoconstriction, which slows down blood flow and healing. 

Can I exercise after lip augmentation? 

It is worth refraining from sports activities for 1 week. Physical activity increases blood pressure, and this can increase swelling in the lips.

Is it possible to increase at breast-feeding? 

Breast-feeding refers to temporary contraindications to the procedure. One of the reasons: if hyaluronic acid needs to be removed with hyaluronidase, this is a medical preparation that will have to be injected into the body of a nursing woman. During breast-feeding, there are strict restrictions on the use of drugs, as they can be absorbed into breast milk. The same applies to the use of anesthesia.

When is laser hair removal possible after lip augmentation? 

Hair removal procedures for the skin of the face (upper lip) should be postponed for 2 weeks. If discomfort occurs after this period, then a doctor’s consultation is necessary before proceeding to other cosmetic procedures. 

What lips are in fashion now? 

The use of fillers allows you to heal the lips and improve their appearance. Healthy, luscious lips are the trend of 2022. Slightly increased volume gives a rejuvenating effect, and youth is always relevant. It is better to select the form individually based on the external data of the patient. 

Where is the best place to go for lip correction? 

Lip augmentation is most often a non-surgical procedure. Despite this, it is worth paying attention to the conditions in which the patient will be. To eliminate the risk of infection, the specialist must observe all precautions and use only sterile instruments. Also, the qualification of a doctor, the ability to provide first aid if necessary is a guarantee of safety for the patient.

Юлечка Михайловна отличный специалист, доволен работой и результатом от двух процедур лазерная шлифовка (одна на средних, вторая на максимальных настройках) плюс плазмолифтинг, плюс микроигольчатый rf лифтинг.

Реабилитация 1 неделя, все процедуры делал летом, сгладились старые рубцы, новые- до 1 года практически ушли, можно конечно ещё улучшать, но в рекламе косметических средств сниматься не собираюсь, а визуальный результат меня вполне устраивает, так что очень рекомендую !)
