What is Lip filling?
After a certain age, the skin begins to renew itself more slowly. Due to gravity and the skin's difficulty in renewing itself, sagging is inevitable as a result of the skin's inability to adhere to the tissues. In order to prevent the collapse and sagging of the face, the procedures performed with filling materials on certain parts of the face are called fillings. One of the most used materials as filling material is hyaluronic acid. The decrease in hyaluronic acid in the structure of the skin over time causes the skin to not hold water as much as desired, which causes unwanted wrinkles, sagging and volumetric shrinkage.
We can call lip augmentation to all cosmetic procedures performed to remove the thinness of the lips and the wrinkles, lines and pits in the edges and to give the lip thickness and the desired volume. Especially women have it done to have a more beautiful lip and attractiveness. However, in recent years, men have started to have lip augmentation,as well.
How is Lip Filling Applied?
First of all, your doctor will tell you whether you are a suitable candidate before lip augmentation is performed. If you are pregnant, breastfeeding or in poor general health, lip augmentation is not performed. You should take the issue of health seriously and share your health status and health history with your doctor. If you are a suitable candidate, your doctor will first decide on your lip design to achieve the desired lip shape. It is important to note that the desired lip shape and the recommendations of your doctor overlap. Since each person has a different lip structure, different methods will be used.
Your doctor will apply a special cream to numb your lips before applying the filler. Then, according to the desired lip shape, he injects the hyaluronic acid content into your lips by means of very thin injection needles. In this way, the desired volume, shape and structure is given to the lip. The process takes between 15-20 minutes. You will not feel any pain or pain during this application. Then you can easily continue your daily life.
It may take several weeks to get the desired shape. However, within a few days, the difference in your lips begins to appear. The effect of hyaluronic acid varies between 9 and 15 months, depending on the success of the procedure, the quality of the applied material and your body. Lip fillers are not permanent. The effect is felt longer in people who do it regularly.
What are the Risks and Side Effects of Lip Filling?
Lip augmentation applications approved by the World Health Organization do not have any side effects. However, we can say that it carries some risks. Mild bruising and swelling on the lips after the application is temporary. This situation disappears on its own within 1 week. The inexperience of your doctor performing the procedure, the use of poor quality materials can cause your lips to look excessively swollen and asymmetrical. Before having this procedure, you should research your doctor well and make your decisions accordingly. Do not have anyone without a medical degree do this procedure. Some people try to apply it themselves at home. This is extremely wrong. Don't risk your life and limb. With his interest and experience in facial aesthetics, Op. Dr. Erdi Özdemir will give you more detailed information during the appointment.
Since hyaluronic acid is found naturally in the body, the drug, which is a component, does not cause any allergic reaction in the body. As we mentioned before, it does not cause any side effects other than slight swelling, bruising and sensitivity in the lip area. However, if any other complication develops, such as nausea, vomiting, drooping lips, excessive swelling and bruising, you should immediately consult your doctor.
