What is Hyaluronic Acid?
It is a product naturally present in our body. It retains water in the body which allows better hydration. Unlike collagen, which is no longer used, hyaluronic acid makes it possible to have soft and thin lips.
What are the Preparations needed before filling?
A first consultation with the surgeon is essential. Firstly, there is a query and a full examination.
To prevent complications and treatment failure, any medication that interferes with blood coagulation must be stopped at least 10 days prior to surgery. Therefore, NSAIDs, corticosteroids, vitamin K antis, vitamin E and fish oil must be stopped after special advice.
How is the Injection of the Lips going?
The operation lasts only about 10 minutes. We start with a disinfection of the lips. The procedure is performed under local anesthesia because the injections are painless and then the filling is started.
The surgeon injects hyaluronic acid with an ultra fine needle. He/she changes the volume by redrawing the contours. In order to erase wrinkles, he/she spreads the product to tighten the skin. Finally, he/she puts an icing on the lips
The results are immediate, we get thinner lips, more voluminous, well hydrated and without wrinkles, in short a younger appearance.
What are the postoperative consequences?
The consequences are generally simple, one can have a redness, an edema, and some bruises which fade after two to three weeks.
Are there any complications after filling the lips?
Complications are very rare. An allergic reaction or blood clots can be seen, that's why the intervention should be done in a doctor's office.
How to take care of the lips after filling?
Lips should not be touched in the first few days after filling. You should stop smoking.
The results are not definitive because hyaluronic acid is a resorbable product so the duration of the filling effect is 6 to 12 months.
What are the alternatives of Hyaluronic Acid ?
There are other techniques:
Lip augmentation by collagen injection: the use is limited by allergic reaction to bovine collagen and very high cost with human collagen. The intervention is quick, but needs to be renewed because this product is absorbable.
Lipostructure or lipofilling: this technique involves injecting autologous fat into the lips. This fat can be removed from the abdomen. The operation is much longer, 1h30. This product does not cause rejection or allergy.
