Lip Plumping can help you achieve beautiful lips - without surgery!!
Lip plumping no injection no pain
There are many methods for revitalizing soft tissue in lips. These new fillers do not require skin testing for allergic reactions and they are all injected. The procedure time varies from 3-10 minutes and some patients relate that these types of injections can be painful. These services can be relatively expensive because they're not permanent fixes and these injections must be repeated every few months to maintain lip fullness. The most common side effect, as with any injection, is redness, bruising and swelling at the injection site that typically last less than three weeks.

A more permanent lip enhancement procedure that is widely used is Gortex. Strips of Gortex (threads of foam-like material) are inserted into the lips; the lips do become somewhat larger after the procedure is completed but some users complain that their lips feel hard, not soft and supple. Some of these implants cannot be removed if a problem arises because the lip tissue grows into and around the implant. Possible complications include infection, migration or extrusion of the implants and lip asymmetry is a concern.

Another somewhat permanent solution to bigger lips is fat injections; a patient's own fat is removed from usually the tummy or buttocks, washed and then re-injected into the lips. While this is probably a fairly safe modality, the fat tends to reabsorb rather quickly, deflating the lips. Pouring over glossy magazines and watching television ads suggest that our faces are in serious trouble unless we use lip injections, surgeries, lotions, potions and other expensive lip products. Most skin care and certainly lip injections that plump and paralyze are laced with lab created chemicals - but that may not matter to you, if when you look into the mirror and see thin lips and want something done about it now.

Playing around with injected chemicals sounds scary to me because there is always a risk involved using them. Fillers that plump are also quite popular. The lists of serums offered grow year after year as scientists strive to provide doctors and their patients anti-aging fixes. Some of these serums such as Bovine Collagen (from cow!) require an allergy test; other serums are deemed to be safe without prior testing. There are two types of lip fillers: Permanent and Temporary.

Temporary lip fillers are absorbed by the body over time, some in 2-6 months and require repeated treatments to maintain the big lips effect. Some fillers claim the effects last up to two years. Silicone is the most frequently used permanent lip filler. If these measures seem very unnatural you would be right. Cutting into perfectly healthy lip tissue, suturing, scarring, burning it with lasers and injecting chemicals can leave a person looking bizarre. Lip injection procedures are risky. There are no guarantees that you will like the results. There are no guarantees that your lip health will not be harmed.

Can we strive for natural measures to maintain youthfulness and bigger lips? Must we continually allow others to take control of our aging process using drugs and chemicals or do you believe a healthy lifestyle includes surgeries, injections and using chemically laden products?

Eating healthy foods, drinking purified water and regular exercise seems to appeal to most people. We know that these avenues promote good health. Thankfully, Lip Plumping can also produce the same effects as surgery and injections without any of the above side-effects and risks.

History of Lip Injections & Cosmetic Implants (Source - Wikipedia)

Full lips with an accentuated border have often been associated with beauty and youth. It has been suggested that this is because the lips occupy both sides of the face and, with the smile, constitute a major focal point of overall facial beauty. Tribal peoples worldwide have introduced various materials into and through the upper and lower lips of both genders to enhance beauty. Unfortunately, one of the effects of human aging is atrophy of facial fat including the lips. In most cultures, this translates as no longer attractive, youthful nor desirable. The procedure to enlarge lips can also reduce the fine lines and wrinkles above the top lip, flaws often referred to as “smoker’s lines.”

Around 1900, surgeons tried injecting paraffin into the lips without success. Liquid silicone was used for lip enhancement, starting in the early 1960s but was abandoned thirty years later due to general -- and later, unfounded -- fears about the effects of silicone on general health. About 1980, injectable bovine collagen was introduced to the cosmetic surgery market and became the standard against which other injectable fillers were measured. However, that collagen does not last very long and requires an allergy test, causing the patient to wait at least three weeks before another appointment, after which more waiting is required to see cosmetic results.

Currently, lip fillers have captured the attention of consumers and physicians in Europe, North America, South America and Australia. In the late 1990s, with the huge popularity of surgical rejuvenation and concomitant increase of cosmetic lip surgery procedures worldwide, more substances, along with biocompatible materials commonly used in other medical applications for years, became available to surgeons for use in augmenting thinning or misshapen lips into more plump and attractive features.

When the lips are overfilled, the results can be comic, often supplying fodder to tabloid newspapers and offbeat websites. Overaggressive lip injections can lead to lumpiness while too little can result in ridges. Common reactions can range from redness, swelling or itching at the injection site(s). Other possible complications include bleeding, uneven lips, movement of the implants or extrusion, when an implant breaks through the outermost surface of the skin. The usual, expected swelling and bruising can last from several days to a week.
