If you want to get fuller lips, there are various lip enhancement procedures to consider which will enhance the shape and fullness of lips. Lip augmentation treatments range from the temporary effect of simple lip plumping lipsticks, to lip implant surgery, where the lips are cut and lip implants are inserted. A popular lip enhancing treatment for fuller lips is lip plumping injections, known as dermal fillers. Lip injections such as Restylane can restore lip definition and also remove fine lines around the mouth, and the results will last for around 6 months.
For a temporary result lasting just a few hours for a special occasion, there are creams and lipsticks you can buy which claim to plump up the lips. This gives the lips a fuller, more youthful look. Before considering longer lasting lip enhancements, you should look at some before and after photos of the various treatments. Some women prefer a subtle improvement as they do not want the “trout lips” look which some celebrities have had the misfortune of being ridiculed for in the press.
If you require permanent results and are happy to go under the surgeon’s knife, then you could consider lip implants. There are two methods for this, one being where the lips are cut and a synthetic lip implant strip is inserted before the cuts are stitched together. The other is where your own fat is removed from one part of the body and inserted into the lips. However, with fat implants, the treatment may need to be repeated if the body absorbs some of the fat and so reduces the fullness of the lips.
Perhaps the most popular treatment for augmenting the lips is having dermal filler lip injections. This can be painful, and a local anaesthetic is required, which could be in the form of a cream or an injection which numbs the lips, just like the one you have at the dentist. After treatment, you may experience side effects such as bruising, tenderness and swollen lips. The results will give you fuller, more defined lips for around 6 months, after which time the injections may be repeated.
