Few Things You Must Know About Cosmetic Lip Enhancement

Cosmetic lip enhancement is one of the most popular non-surgical procedures in the UK. It is becoming increasingly common as more and more people want to enhance their appearance.

The procedure is also known as lip augmentation, lip enlargement, or lip plumping. The goal of the procedure is to enhance your natural lips by increasing the volume and size. This can be achieved through either fillers or implants.

It’s not uncommon for patients to be nervous and hesitant about having lip enhancement surgery done. However, we want you to feel confident in your decision by sharing some important facts about the procedure that we think will ease your mind. Here are a few things you must know about cosmetic lip enhancement:

There are different types of lip enhancement procedures:

While there are many options for enhancing your lips, the two most common options are injectable cosmetic lip fillers and permanent lip implants. Injectable fillers are temporary solutions that provide immediate results but don’t last as long as lip implants do (which can last anywhere from one to five years). Lip implants are made out of silicone or saline and placed within the upper or lower lips to create a fuller appearance. Silicone tends to last longer than saline and is less prone to infection but is also more expensive than saline implants. Both involve minimal downtime and can be performed with local anesthesia so there’s no need for general anesthesia during your procedure!

The procedure lasts anywhere from 30 minutes to an hour depending on what kind of treatment you get. The treatment area will be numbed before any work begins. Afterward, you may have some swelling and bruising that should go away within a few days.

It’s not a “one size fits all” treatment

There are many different types of lip enhancement procedures, and each one is customized to your unique needs. For example, if you have a deviated septum that is causing breathing issues, we may recommend surgery to correct that problem before proceeding with any other cosmetic procedures. If you’re looking for an all-natural look, we would use a hyaluronic acid injectable filler on your lips to plump them up.

You should see results within weeks

The final results of your lip enhancement will differ from person to person depending on how much volume you want added to your lips and how much skin laxity there is in the area. You will see some initial swelling after the procedure, but this should subside within a few days and then the effect will become more noticeable over time as the swelling goes down. In most cases, patients can expect to see noticeable results within two weeks of their procedure!

It’s safe and affordable

Lip enhancement procedures are both safe and affordable. They are also very effective at helping patients achieve their desired results.

Look young

One of the biggest advantages to undergoing lip augmentation is that it can help you look younger and more attractive while boosting your self-confidence. In addition, it can also aid in correcting certain facial imperfections such as uneven lips or thinning lips.
