What is Lip Augmentation?
Lip Augmentation or lip filler is a cosmetic procedure to achieve fuller, plumper lips. The process involves using injectable dermal filler containing collagen, fat, implants, or substances similar to the likes of hyaluronic acid. This substance is responsible for increasing the volume of the lips. Hyaluronic acid is the most commonly used form of lip augmentation due to a significant lack of side-effects as compared to other methods and products.
Lip injections are made from a variety of products. These can be natural elements in the body or artificially manufactured elements to be introduced in the body.

What are other methods of lip augmentation?
Lip implantation is a surgical procedure, where the medical implant (usually that is made with medical-grade silicone material) is implanted into the lips. This procedure involves surgical incision and implantation of the material. After this procedure recovery period is about 2 weeks.
Lip augmentation with the utilization of medical-grade liquid silicone is very similar to Lip augmentation with Hyaluronic Acid Filler, the biggest difference between two that liquid silicone tends to migrate within the tissues and lymphatic system, causing permanent deformity and as a result, secondary surgery is warranted.

Different injection zones for the shape and volume exist, which can be critically important for making the upper lip appear natural.
The top lip should be more pronounced in relation to the lower lip.
When injectors don’t consider the original shape of the upper lip and use too much product, a sausage form of the upper lip can result, which is undesirable for most clients.
Lower lips usually have an identical form, with a slight volume enhancement centrally. The lower lip volume should slightly bigger the upper lip to maintain balance.

Is getting a Lip Augmentation a Painful Process?
We’ve all heard the phrase Beauty is Pain, but how far are we willing to go? The procedure for Lip Augmentations is relatively painless due to numbing creams and gels. During the injection process, most patients have reported to not feeling anything.
Right after the lip filler procedure, the pain is said to be a 4/10. The most pressure and pain is felt in the center of the lips where the gel is filled in. When the numbing agent loses its touch about 5-6 hours later, is when the actual pain begins. Any kind of movement to the lips is said to be painful and swinging. Along with the pain comes swelling and bruising.
By the end of two days, both swelling and pain will come to an end. Getting a Lip Augmentation in the Brooklyn office relatively depends on your personal opinions and desires. Some people aren’t comfortable with the thought of a foreign substance entering their body, whereas others have no problem with it. Preferences vary with pain tolerance and dedication to the process.
