Lip Augmentation:
 
Lip augmentation or lip enhancement, is a cosmetic procedure that can give you fuller, plumper lips. These days, an injectable dermal filler is the most commonly used method of lip augmentation.

There are many types of lip fillers that can be injected in your lips and around your mouth. But the most common fillers today are products that contain substances similar to hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid is a natural substance found in the body. It helps increase volume in your lips.

Fat injections and implants are other methods to plump lips. But they aren't used as much today because the results vary and there is a greater risk of side effects.

Hyaluronic acid fillers can improve the appearance of your lips by adding:

Shape
Structure
Volume

The effects typically last around six to eight months. After that more lip injections are needed to keep the volume of your lips.

Benefits of Hyaluronic Acid Fillers:

Once injected, the gel in the filler supports and shapes the tissues of the lips.

Control over lip volume. The amount of substance injected can be controlled, so the doctor has better control over how much lip volume is created.

Gradual pace of treatment. The lip injections can be given gradually during different appointments until the desired results are achieved.

Bumps dissolve easily. Any lumps and bumps created by movement of the lips can be dissolved easily.

Less bruising. There may be less bruising and swelling compared to other dermal fillers.
Reasonably lasting results. The results are reasonably long-lasting, but not permanent.

What to Expect During the Procedure:

Injectable lip augmentation techniques can be performed quickly in your doctor's office with little to no downtime. Before the injections, nerve block injections can be given before the treatment to completely numb the lips. This is similar to the anesthetic injections that you get at the dentist to numb your mouth. After carefully marking the areas to be injected, very fine needles are used to inject the substance into your lips. Following injection, ice may be given to ease discomfort and control swelling. But no firm pressure should be put on the treatment area.

Side Effects and Risks:

Side effects of hyaluronic acid fillers are temporary and should only last a few days. They may include:

Bleeding from the injection sites
Swelling and bruising
Redness and tenderness at the site of the injection

Cost of Lip Augmentation:

The price for fillers (1 cc) is 230 euro.The second syringe cost 200 euros.
