Lip aesthetics are the procedures being performed lip structures having a volume and appearance which is in harmony with facial structures. In order to provide this, it may be necessary to enlarge the lips in some people and to shrink in some people. The goal in lip esthetics is never to obtain a lip appearance which is not seen natural like an inflated balloon. To form a lip structure which is not natural is an application which actually extremely disturbs people and which makes the people experiencing the application unattractive instead of attractive.
Thin lips may be thickened by means of filling applications or surgical applications.
Plumping lips with hyaluronic acid
Hyaluronic acid is a tissue material which is also found in the structure of the skin. By injecting hyaluronic acid fillings prepared in appropriate density being convenient with the structure of the lip into the lip, an enlargement and thickening in desired volume is ensured. Since they are resorbed by the body six to eighteen months later, hyaluronic fillings are not persistent. If the person desires, he or she may renew his or her fillings at the end of this duration.
Lip thickening with fat tissue
Fat fillings obtained from the person himself or herself may be used in making prominent the lips or in thickening the lips.
Fat tissue is usually taken from the abdomen or form the hip. Obtained fat tissues are specially processed and they are administrated by means of very thin cannulas into the lips. The persistency of fat fillings varies depending on the person. Fat fillings which can be fed in the region in which they are placed remain lifelong. Since the fat cells which cannot be fed will be resorbed by the body, revision is required in fat filling applications.
Persistent plumping applications are the procedures which can be performed surgically. These applications are performed under anesthesia. By entering through the edges of the lip by means of small incisions, the tissues obtained from the person himself or herself or silicone implants particular for the lip are inserted. These inserted materials persist lifelong.
If lip plumping with hyaluronic acid is performed, first an anesthetic cream is applied on the lip region and then surgery wait twenty minutes. After the lips are numbed, hyaluronic acid injection is applied. This procedure lasts approximately ten minutes.
If lip enlargement with fat filling is performed, first fat filling is taken from the appropriate area of the body by the cannulas. Obtained fat fillings are processed specially and they injected into the numbed lips again by means of special cannulas. These procedures last totally for ten minutes.
In persistent filling applications, tissues that can form volume are taken from the appropriate places of the body or ready-made implants are used. The duration of these procedures may vary from thirty minutes to one hour.
Following the lip fillings, an excessive swelling in lips and bleeding in the inner parts of the lips may occur at the beginning. These heal within seven to ten days.
Since a bit much swelling and bruises may occur in the first days, we suggest our patients to rest for several days.
If you have big thick lips, it is possible to shrink them. Shrinking procedures are performed surgically. Lip volumes are reduced by removing tissues from the non-apparent parts of the lips from the outside. Since this application is a surgical procedure, some swelling may occur for the first days however, these swelling heals several days later.
