When you go for lip injections, your doctor will inject a gel of hyaluronic acid into your lips. This gel will take place in soft tissue and fat that was lost due to the natural manners of aging. It will plump up your lips in the process. Many people fancy such fuller lips when they see pictures of celebrities with huge, overly-plumped lips in magazines; but, sometimes peoples’ experience after lip injections is a far cry from such photos. So if you are thinking to go for a lip enhancement injection, here are five things you should keep in mind before scheduling your appointment with the doctor for lip injections.

  1. There are other options also apart from hyaluronic acid for fuller lips. A hyaluronic acid such as Juvederm, Restylane, and alike are the most common options for lip injections which also lasts long. Apart from these, there are some other alternatives also available to you, which depends on your particular needs. One of these options includes collagen injections. But for collagen injections, you have to take allergy tests for four weeks because it is extracted from bovine hides. You can also go for fat transfer in which fat will be harvested from another part of your body and will be injected into your lips. But fat transfer tends to be short-lived because your body reabsorbs the injected fat. Surgical options such as fat transfer or lip implants which are more intrusive, but they also last longer. Many patients go for surgical lip enhancement after watching good results with low-commitment lip injections. The best part about lip fillers is that they are usually products based on hyaluronic acid (HA), like Belotero that blend into lip tissue when injected, and are readily absorbed into the lip tissues over the time, and they can really even help to make new collagen.
  2. You can control how much filler is injected. If you are going to have hyaluronic acid filler, you can decide how much filler do you want to put on your lips. If you decide this before your operation, you can prevent any bad outcomes like the huge ‘duck lips’ which are the result of the too much liquid injection. Before the operation, you can determine how much filler you want your lips to contain.
  3. It’s not too expensive to do. Many people think that lip injections are as expensive as conventional plastic surgery operations. But it is not true, their cost is not very high and like plastic surgery.
  4. Taking lip injection is not a surgery. This is not considered surgery because the fillers are not implanted, they are injected.
  5. It does have some risks. It has some side effects like redness, bruising, lumps, asymmetrical features, etc.
