Lip Augmentation Coventry | Get Fuller Lips
As in other parts of the body, our lips lose some of their fullness, or volume, as we get older. This is due to the reduction in the amount of hyaluronic acid in the tissues that accompanies ageing. Restylane LIPP is a form of hyaluronic acid that has been specially designed to replace this loss of volume, and therefore restore, or even enhance, the natural shape and fullness of our lips.
The procedure of lip enhancement is undertaken by performing a series of injections into the border or the body of the lips, or both, depending on the results we are trying to achieve. This is a very sensitive part of the face, so Dr. Horn usually uses anaesthetic in the form of a dental block (injections into the gums), to totally numb the lips. After injecting the lips, the filler may then be moulded slightly to maximise smoothness; the whole procedure takes 20-30 minutes.
Immediately after the procedure the lips will be swollen, but this will be largely settled by the following day. When the anaesthetic wears off, (within a few hours), the lips may be sore; this is readily eased by the use of ice and/or simple painkillers.
Below are some before and after pictures to illustrate the benefits of lip augmentation and some more information about the product we use.
