Plump, shaped and beautiful lips have been at the forefront of the most important aesthetic elements in women since the past. When the face is examined, the eyes in the upper part, the nose in the middle and the lips in the lower part form the focal point. Attractive and well-defined lips are the expression of sexual attractiveness, health and youth.
Filling materials are used in people with congenital thin lips or those whose lips become thinner as a result of aging, to plump the lips and make their contours clear. Today, hyaluronic acid fillers are most commonly used as lip fillers.
Hyaluronic acid is one of the building blocks of human skin and keeps the skin moist and elastic by holding water. As age progresses, its secretion by the body decreases. As a result, skin dryness, loss of elasticity and wrinkles develop. Fillers containing hyaluronic acid are completely removed from the body over time after they are injected.
Production technologies of hyaluronic acid fillers are different. For this reason, in filling selection, quality fillings that have been tried before and have the least reaction problem should be preferred. Fillers are usually sold in 1 ml syringes. Usually 1 ml is sufficient for the first application. Although the effect time of the lip filler is shorter in the first application, the effect time is prolonged in repeated injections and the lip volume may become permanent.
Lip augmentation application takes about 5 minutes. Before the procedure, the lips are numbed by applying anesthetic cream. After the injection is made, it should be ensured that the filling is distributed over the entire lip with massage. The effect occurs immediately after lip augmentation. Since the fillers contain some anesthetic cream, pain is not felt after the injection. If some cold application is made on the first day, the swelling will be much less. Since the hyaluronic acid will hold some water, the volume will increase a little more in a day or two.
Other than temporary fillers such as hyaluronic acid, permanent fillers are available. However, the use of permanent fillings can be inconvenient. When there is a reaction in hyaluronic acid fillers or in the presence of an undesirable appearance, the filler can be melted with a substance called hyaluronidase. However, it is not possible to melt the fillings in permanent fillings. When a problem develops in permanent fillings, the only option is surgical removal of the filling. For this reason, I do not find permanent filling applications correct.
