Lip implants are a form of lip augmentation that involves the placement of either collagen-based or synthetic material into a person's lip or lips to augment appearance. One or both lips can be augmented in this manner during the same surgical procedure.

The costs associated with lip implants usually will not be covered by medical insurance. The surgery typically is considered cosmetic. The cost of lip implants can prove to be rather significant in the United States. A person interested in this type of lip augmentation can obtain lip implants abroad at qualified, safe clinics. The expense of the process abroad is significantly less than what is available in the United States, United Kingdom and Australia. Information on foreign options for lip implants, and other treatments, is available at Qunomedical.

How Does a Lip Implant Procedure Work?

The lip implant process commences by making a small incision at the corner of a person's mouth. The implant material is then inserted through the tiny incision and manually manipulated into place. Both the upper and lower lip can be treated at the same time. The surgery requires only a local anesthetic. Generally speaking, a person experiences only minimal discomfort during the process. Depending on whether one or both lips are augmented, the process takes from between 30 minutes upwards to an hour. Implanting is undertaken in a clinical setting and does not require hospitalization.

The recovery process following a lip implant normally is uneventful. A person usually is able to return to most daily routines, including work, within a day or two or surgery. There will be some mild discomfort after the anesthesia wears off and for the first couple of days following surgery. Swelling is another post-surgery issue, but can be controlled with cold compresses or icepacks. A patient needs to limit chewing and talking during the first two days after surgery. In addition, a patient should avoid smiling and laughing, if at all possible, during the week immediately following surgery. The lips need to be kept clean during the post-surgery period to avoid infection. Topical antibiotics usually are provided to the patient. In some cases, a course of oral antibiotics will be prescribed as a precaution.
