What happens during a consultation session?

First of all, the surgeon listens to you and your ideal lip shape in mind then starts going through your medical history and examines your lips to see which method fits you the best.
After the procedure, your lips will be swollen and very tender. Depending on your doctor`s used method, after the lip implants surgery your lips will be numb and you may have slightly uncomfortable feeling while eating and drinking. But after one week the swelling will go away and you can see the final results. For injections, the doctor numbs your lips, the swelling can be between 1-3 days. Furthermore, our doctors forbid you from going to gym for 2 days after the lip injection and any kind of activity that can increase blood flow in your head and face like getting a massage or doing handstand must be avoided.
The risk for lip augmentation is quite small but as your right as a patient you need to know that there is possibility of infection, irritation from improperly-sized implants, having allergic reaction to the implants or the injections, implants moving (migration), permanent discoloration from bruising, severe inflammation, blood vessel blockage, necrosis (tissue death), and hematomas.
Implants can be removed in a subsequent surgery session; the injections are temporary and they go away by themselves over time but permanent injection can be more difficult to remove.
According to our doctors some factors can affect the expiration date such as patient`s metabolism, plumpness the patient wishes for, the product used in their injections, and how much of injection the patient gets. However, the expected time can vary from 6 months to 1 year on average.
The most commonly used fillers are Juvéderm, Juvéderm Ultra, Juvéderm Ultra Plus, Juvéderm Volbella, Restylane, and Restylane Silk. All of them are made from Hyaluronic acid only their difference is in thickness and the way they look in the lip. However, Juvéderm, Volbella, and Restylane Silk are much thinner and the right choice for people wanting more superficially and puffier lips.
