Lip Augmentation In Thailand

Lip Enhancement Surgery (Augmentation) To augment a thin lip, patients can use their own tissue (fat or anadesma), implant artificial materials (collagen or hyaluron acid), or undergo surgery to use tissue near the lip.
Lip implant surgery begins with the creation of a tunnel to accommodate the implant. An insertion device is used to secure the implant, which is subsequently pulled through the lip. The implant(s) are cut to size, and the wounds are sewn up.
Operation duration can range from 15 minutes to 2 hours. Most operations are completed in an hour or less.
Post-operative Care:
Return to normal activities: typically within a day. For the first 48 hours, apply ice packs to your lips and avoid chewing or talking. To prevent swelling and bleeding, avoid actions that put pressure on your lips, such as bending, straining, or exercising. Keep your lips clean to prevent infection.
Recovery Period:
Your recovery will be determined by your lifestyle and the operation you underwent. Injections can result in a short recovery time. However, swelling or bruising may linger longer. Surgical implants or grafts may require up to two weeks of recuperation time. Graft recipients may need 1-2 weeks to resume normal activities, while some can return within a day.

Potential risks and complications:

Common injection site reactions include redness, swelling, and itching. Possible problems include bleeding, uneven lips, implant movement/extrusion, infection, and nerve injury. The regular swelling and bruising might continue anywhere from a few days to a week. Surgery carries inherent risks and problems. Allergies to implants and anesthesia are both possible. Before surgery, share any concerns with your doctor and inform them of any pre-existing medical issues that could cause complications.
Anesthesia use:
Local anesthetic is typically used during the procedure, followed by hospital admission.
It relies on both your and your surgeon’s preferences. Lip augmentation can be performed as an outpatient procedure, in a hospital, or in an ambulatory surgery suite.
Preparation Before Surgery
During consultation, a medical history (including allergies, major medical conditions, and prescriptions) will be assessed, followed by a physical examination and laboratory tests.
 The surgeon will also examine your mouth. If you have an active lip or oral cavity infection, such as herpes, cold, or tonsillitis, you will need to postpone your surgery.
Blood and urine samples will be taken for pre-operative laboratory examinations. X-rays may be used to assess bone structure.
 Avoid smoking for 3-4 weeks before surgery as it disrupts circulation and slows healing.
 You may need to abstain from alcohol for a week prior to surgery and during recuperation.
 Avoid using medications including hormones, anticoagulants, anabolic steroids, and vitamins for at least 4-6 weeks to prevent complications before surgery.
Avoid using aspirin, anti-inflammatory medicines, and herbal supplements as they can cause more bleeding.
