Lip augmentation

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.



Although every surgical procedure may involve some risks and complications that the patient has no option but to accept, your aesthetic surgeon will make a point of reducing their likelihood of appearing by choosing the technique best suited to your medical condition. Complications such as bleeding, wound or prosthetic infections and healing failure, although relatively rare, can occur with any type of surgery.

This text is not exhaustive, and cannot replace a consultation with a specialist, although it can answer some questions or give rise to others. Each patient will receive full and detailed information on her own medical status and the particular procedure chosen.
