For years, it has been assumed that when a man looks at a woman’s face, his gaze lingers on her eyes. But trend has changed over the time, now the part of the face that is really eye-catching is considered the mouth, especially when one has luscious well-defined, perfectly beautiful lips. Unfortunately, not every woman is blessed with desired appearance of lips. But enhancements in cosmetic surgery have made it easy to achieve the desired lip size and shape that falls well within the parameters of perfect lips.
If you also have abnormal, large sized lips or want to get a seductive pout, the one similar to Angelina Julie or Scarlett Johansson’s era-defining lips, you should consider lip enhancement procedures.
Lip enhancement techniques
Appearance of lips can be improved either by reducing their size to make them more symmetrical or by increasing their size to obtain well-defined lips with perfect pout. Those who have overly large, prominent lips can benefit from lip reduction surgery while lip augmentation is perfect option for all those who are unhappy with their thin lips or want to have pouty lips. Lip augmentation can be done using both surgical and non-surgical methods. However, individuals prefer non-surgical lip augmentation as it is equally effective but virtually non-invasive and painless. Furthermore, it is a simple procedure that gives instant results.
Lip reduction surgery
Lip reduction surgery can help you in normalizing the size and shape of overly large, out of proportion lips, making them well-defined and more beautiful. Decreasing the size of lips makes them less prominent and prevents them from becoming a stand out feature. Lip reduction is a minor surgery that is performed under local anesthesia and causes minimal discomfort. During the procedure, surgeon makes a small horizontal incision inside the lip. Excess fat and tissues are then removed through this incision. Finally, incision is closed using absorbable stitches. It causes no severe side effects except slight swelling and bruising that subside within a couple of days. Final results of procedure will become apparent within a few days.
The procedure can be performed on both upper and lower lips simultaneously to improve their appearance and balance out facial features.
Lip augmentation is the procedure that is performed to add volume to the lips using injectables. Injectables may be synthetic dermal fillers or fat injections.
- Lip fillers: Hyaluronic acid based fillers are usually used for plumping up the lips. They are extremely safe and give instant results within no time. The procedure for injecting fillers is very simple and easy. Small amount of filler is injected in few sites in and around the lips with tiny needle. The treatment is virtually painless and usually requires no anesthetic; however, numbing cream may be applied to reduce the discomfort, if any. The results may last up to 18 months or two years.
- Fat injections: It is an ideal option for those who want to enhance their lips without going under the knife or using synthetic fillers. This procedure involves harvesting fat from other areas of the body, mostly abdomen, buttocks and thighs, and injecting it into the lips. It is also a safe procedure that causes no severe side effects or complications.
