Lips are an essential part of your face and smile. As with great teeth, having well proportioned lips can make a big difference to your appearance and confidence. That’s where lip reshaping comes into the picture.
In recent years, lip reshaping has become a popular treatment among patients. By bringing slight changes to your mouth, it helps increase or decrease the prominence of your upper and/or lower lips. While the changes are minor, they can go a long way in improving the overall look of the face.
With age, lips tend to lose collagen, which has a shrinking effect. Lips enhancement or reshaping counteracts this process by creating a more natural, youthful look. That’s not to say lip reshaping is exclusive to older patients – it can also be a great option for people who have always felt their lips are too small or flat.
Lip reshaping is a pretty simple treatment, which occurs under local anesthesia to make the procedure painless and comfortable for patients. Typically, filler is injected in the tip and then massaged, which evenly spreads the filler to create a discreet and natural look.
As far as recovery is concerned, it’s not uncommon for mid swelling and bruising to occur in the post-operation phase, although this goes generally goes away after a couple of days. Applying cold packs to lips can help reduce swelling, and avoiding major lip movements can also speed up recovery time further.
