Smile Surgery

Aesthetic surgery of the lips can hem or fill an upper lip that is too thin or poorly hemmed. Either your aesthetic surgeon injects resorbable biological implants (hyaluronic acid) or he will carry out a tissue graft from another part of your body.

The result: your face has gained a glow and a youthful look.

These operations are usually performed as outpatient surgery under local anaesthesia. A hyaluronic acid injection produces effects for six to eight months and does not interrupt your social life. But it must be repeated once or twice a year.

A transplant, in contrast, requires you to interrupt you social and professional life for five days at least; but even if reversible, it can also be permanent.



Every surgical procedure can involve a certain amount of risk and complications that the patient must accept; your plastic surgeon will make it his or her duty to reduce the rate of occurrence by choosing the technique best suited to your medical situation. Complications such as bleeding, wound or prosthesis infections and poor healing, although relatively rare, can occur with any type of surgery.
