What is Lip Aesthetics?

You may have a thin lip structure or a fainter fullness in your lips due to aging. Lip augmentation can be performed with recurrent lip filling applications, as well as with the surgical method called lip lift in patients who want a permanent solution. Sometimes both can be combined together.

Especially patients with a very thin upper lip with a long distance between the base of the nose and the upper lip, whose upper teeth are not visible when smiling, are suitable candidates for this procedure. Lip lift is a procedure that aims to make the pink part of the upper lip more visible. Both the appearance of your upper lip increases and the distance between the upper lip and the base of the nose is shortened.

Suitable Candidates for Lip Aesthetics

Lip aesthetics is generally suitable for individuals who want changes in the shape, volume or proportions of the lips. This procedure appeals to people who have thin or voluminous lips due to genetic factors, the aging process or external factors, who experience lip asymmetries or who want to correct wrinkles around the lips. It can also be preferred to correct congenital lip deformities or accidental lip injuries. Suitable candidates are individuals in good general health, who approach surgical intervention with a positive expectation and can clearly express their personal aesthetic goals. Prior to the procedure, it is important to be evaluated by a plastic surgeon and to create a treatment plan tailored to individual needs.

Lip Aesthetics Recovery Process

The recovery process after lip aesthetics is usually fast and characterized by minimal discomfort. Swelling and bruising of the lips may occur after surgery, but these symptoms usually subside within a few days. Applying cold compresses in the first days can reduce swelling. During the healing process, tenderness and temporary stiffness in the lips are normal. Under the guidance of the doctor, physical activities may be limited for a certain period of time. The full recovery process varies depending on individual factors, but usually results are evident within a few weeks. Regular attendance at follow-up appointments and compliance with the doctor’s recommendations are important for a successful recovery. The results obtained after lip aesthetics usually offer a long-term and natural appearance.
