Today’s subject is on the borderline of plastic surgery and aesthetic medicine – modeling the appearance of the lips. Lip augmentation is a very popular treatment today. Contrary to the popular belief, it gives a very natural, interesting result and helps achieve a nice shape of the lips. Of course, you can always overdo it and as a result end up having an “algae eater” look :-), therefore I recommend reading this article, which role is to help avoiding any undesirable effect.
In terms of lip enhancement, there is wide range of treatments. The choice of method depends largely on the degree of the permanency of the results the patient is seeking through the treatment. Lip enhancement is usually performed by using fillers. This is the method that most patients try out first. The procedure is performed under local anesthesia and it gives a temporary result, usually lasting up to a year. The short duration of its effect is both a disadvantage and its advantage. As for the disadvantages the matter is quite simple – since we spent a bit of money, we would like the effect to last for as long as possible. The advantage of this solution is, however, the reversibility of the treatment’s outcome – after a few months filler gets absorbed, and the result is lost, which can be beneficial if you are not satisfied with you new look (usually you need to survive these few months with the effect, or request a correction, which is not always possible for medical reasons). Another important advantage of the filler is the possibility of an eventual additional injection/readjustment of the original result. However, after a few years many patients do not want to keep repeating the same procedure and are looking for a more permanent solution. For these patients great alternative treatments include implants, lip, skin graft or fat transplant.
Recently a lot of attention has been given to fat transplantation from patient’s own body. However, patients considering this solution must reckon with the fact that adipose tissue is quite a chimeric material. Fat tissue taken from the patient’s body is prepared accordingly (centrifuged) prior to the injection. However, there is not really a guarantee as to how much of the collected cells “survive” such a procedure, for each cell in the moment of the collection is a different age. Therefore, you must wait at least three months after surgery to see how the end result will work out a treatment. Result of fat graft is permanent, that is, it is not possible to withdraw the treatment; at most, the result can be corrected.
