2 Ways To Get Plumper Lips

Lip enhancement procedures are growing in popularity for a number of reasons. For some, it's simply fun to experiment with their appearance and find new ways to change up their look. For others, trying lip enhancement may be a way of boosting self-esteem and part of the process of discovering more about themselves. There are various lip enhancement methods to explore, and the right choice for you will depend on the results you want and how long you want the enhancement to last. Here's an overview of two popular ways to get plumper lips:


Lip fillers can be completed in less than an hour and the results will last for at least a few months. There are different types of fillers, with each type aimed at creating a slightly different end result. For example, you may want to opt for a filler type that adds lots of volume to your lips, or you may want to opt for one that makes your lips look plumper by reducing creases and fine lines around the outer edges of your lips. Fillers are injected into your lips and are a relatively inexpensive option, with the added benefit of requiring no recovery time. Your lips may feel a little tender after your appointment, but you can go about your day as normal.


Synthetic implants are designed with permanence in mind, so this type of lip enhancement is often chosen after some experience with lip fillers. When you know you like how your lips look when plumped up, implants can be a great option due to requiring no further appointments down the line. Local anaesthetic is used for this procedure, and a small incision will be made at each corner of your lips. A small clamp is used to create a gap in your lip tissue, and the implant is inserted through the incision site. Dissolving sutures are used to close the incisions, and you can go home straight after the procedure. Implants are considerably more expensive than fillers, and you may experience some localised bruising for a couple of days after treatment, but if you are regularly scheduling filler appointments, implants may save you time and money in the long run.

Most people are suitable candidates for both fillers and implants, but you should always let your practitioner know about any medical conditions you have or medicines you take before having treatment.
