Lip Augmentation in Abu Dhabi & Al Ain can be carried out in a number of ways. The method chosen depends on the patient’s requirements. There are surgical and non-surgical methods to carry out the treatment. The ones offered at the Royal Clinic are mentioned below.
These are invasive treatments that involve surgical procedures to enhance the appearance and shape of the lips.
- Lip implants: The permanent lip implantation is carried out under local anesthesia. It does not require the patients to come back to repeat the treatment. It is an in-office procedure that takes thirty minutes to perform. The implants are placed underneath the surface of the skin of the lips. This is done by making a small incision on each side of the lip from where the implants are inserted. These match the desired shape and volume of the lips.
- Bull horn lip lift: This is a surgical procedure in which the surgeon decreases the area above the lips and under the nose by making a cut. The shape of this incision resembles that of the bull horn and is done after numbing the area with local anesthesia. The muscles and skin in this area are tightened so that the inverted lip moves up and shows more of the pink skin. The incision is then closed using removable or dissolvable sutures. This is a permanent procedure and the results last a lifetime. The healing process however may take months depending on the immunity of the patient and also their after-care.
- Fat injections: This is the process of transferring the fatty tissues into the lips to increase their volume naturally. The fatty tissue is extracted from the person’s own body. These are taken out through the procedure of liposuction after which they are purified. The fat cells are separated from the tissues and made into injections. These are then applied to the lips. The benefit of this method is that the chances of allergic reactions are reduced as the cells are obtained from the person’s own body.
- Tissue grafting: In this method, a part of the skin is removed from any suitable body part to be chosen by the surgeon. It is then placed on the lips. It is carried out under local anesthesia to avoid pain and discomfort. These results last for some years.
The non-surgical procedures include the injections used to make the lips appear fuller enhancing their appearance.
- Fillers: These are lip filler injections applied to the lips to increase their volume and improve their shape. These are foreign solutions that stay on the lips for some months after which they are dissolved. These thus provide a temporary solution for lip enhancement. The treatment has to be repeated in order to maintain the appearance. The time required to re-do the procedure depends on the type of fillers used. Some stay for months while others may last some years as well. It provides instant results however the healing process may take some days.
- Botox: These are also injections of Botulinum Toxin that paralyze the muscles in the lips temporarily. This results in lips appearing plumper and fuller. It gives the effect of volumized lips. There is however a downtime of a week before the result becomes visible.
Aftercare and Recovery:
The after-care of each procedure is different. The post-op care instructions are given to the patient by the doctor. After certain procedures, extensive care needs to be taken while others may not require special care. Whichever method is used, the outcome of the treatment mainly depends on the post-op care by the patient.
The recovery period of each treatment also varies. Surgical treatments take time to recover while partial or non-invasive procedures have a comparatively less recovery period. Invasive treatments may take months to heal but the results are long-lasting and even permanent. Non-invasive or partially invasive treatments even though have a comparatively shorter recovery time, the results are often temporary.
