Introduction

We all have our thoughts on what constitutes "perfect" lips. Some find a full, lusciously hydrated pout attractive while others think of a thin and petite look as appealing. If someone thinks their lips are imperfect, they hesitate to smile and their self-image gets affected. No matter how your lip shape may be now, you can change it into a size more comfortable for you by getting lip surgery to enhance or reduce the lip size!

What Is Lip Surgery?

Lip surgery is a cosmetic procedure where the surgeon changes the appearance of the patient’s lips to make them look more aesthetically pleasing and to bring a balance to the patient’s facial features. A lip surgery improves the appearance of the lips without affecting their functionality.

Types Of Lip Surgery

What To Expect At The Consultation?

During the consultation for lip surgery, Dr. Vasant Gholave, Director of Arra Aesthetics, will analyze the patient’s lips and ask the patient whether they wish to reduce their size or enlarge them. He will make sure to understand the desires and needs of the patient and give them advice about the most suitable procedure. He will explain the full procedure in detail, including possible risks and expected results so that the patient can make an informed decision regarding the procedure. 

Dr. Gholave believes that open communication between patient and doctor is essential for the best result, so he will encourage the patient to ask any doubts or questions they may have. He will do his best to answer all of the patient’s doubts so that the patient can go through the procedure with a clear mind. 

How Is Lip Surgery Performed At Arra Aesthetics?

The procedure of the lip surgery will depend on the type of lip surgery being performed.

Lip Enhancement

The following are the steps of lip enhancement or lip augmentation:

  • Fat Grafting:

    • Local anesthesia is administered for the comfort of the patient.

    • The surgeon removes small amounts of fat from the cheeks by liposuction.

    • The surgeon then injects the fat into the lips to give them a plump and voluminous appearance.

  • Hyaluronic Acid Fillers:

    • The surgeon injects small quantities of hyaluronic acid fillers (HA fillers) into the lips to increase their volume.

    • This procedure is completed very quickly and with minimal pain.

Lip Reduction

The following are the steps of lip reduction or reduction cheiloplasty:

  • Local anesthesia is administered for the comfort of the patient.

  • The surgeon makes a horizontal incision on the lip that needs to be reduced in size. The surgeon takes care to ensure that the incision is on a non-visible part of the lip.

  • The surgeon then removes the excess fat and tissue from the lip.

  • Finally, the surgeon closes the incision using absorbable stitches or sutures.

How Is The Recovery After Lip Surgery?

The recovery after lip surgery depends on the type of lip surgery that is performed. 

After Lip Enhancement:

Lip enhancement or lip augmentation is a minimally invasive procedure so the downtime needed after the procedure is very low. Some swelling after the procedure is expected. The patient will be advised to apply ice packs to the swollen lip. The results of the procedure will be immediately visible after the swelling goes down. 

After Lip Reduction:

Lip reduction or reduction cheiloplasty is a more invasive procedure than lip enhancement. So the required downtime will be longer. Some soreness and swelling after the procedure is expected. The surgeon will prescribe medications to control the soreness and swelling. The sutures may take some time to come out fully, ranging from a few days to two weeks. The lip will be fully healed during this period. 

The patient must diligently attend the follow-up appointments so that the surgeon can analyze the healing of the lips and ensure that no complications have occurred.

What Are The Possible Risks Of Lip Surgery?

Lip surgery may be minimally invasive, but it does carry a few possible risks and side effects like:

These side effects are rarely seen and tend to be temporary. However, if they persist, book an appointment with the surgeon immediately. 

At Arra Aesthetics, our team of experts takes utmost care during the procedure to ensure that these side effects will not occur.

We were based in UK when I had severe burn on my right hand. I was undergoing burn dressing daily almost for 3 months there. But some portion of the wound didn't heal.In between treatment, we relocated to India and the wound was still not fully healed.While searching options on web for my wound healing, I came across the Arra Aesthetics and I came to know about the best laser treatment for wound healing. I consulted Dr. Vasant Gholave Plastic Surgeon in Pune for my non healing wound and post burn keloid of right hand at Arra Aesthetics. He explained the latest revolutionary Recosma LASER technology for wound and keloid. Although I was tense and worried about my wound, I decided to give it a try for this new laser therapy. To my surprise the wound healed completely by the end of 3rd session which was fron 10 days from my consulting session. The keloid scars have become soft and thin, also reducing in thickness after recosma laser.I am very happy and satisfied with my treatment.Dr. Vasant Gholave is highly experienced plastic surgeon. He is gentle and friendly. The clinic has advanced laser machines and the facility provided is very standard and cleanliness is maintained very much.I had wonderful experiences in Arra clinic . I highly recommend the clinic to people.

I was suffering from excess fat on belly. I consulted Dr. Vasant Gholave, Cosmetic & Plastic Surgeon at Arra Aesthetic, Pune for fat reduction surgery. Initially, I was not sure about what exactly is required, Tummy Tuck or Liposuction. And if at all Liposuction, which technology shall I choose.He explained me everything in details, about options of non-surgical fat reduction VS Liposuction Surgery. He further explained me about different Liposuction Technologies, like Conventional Suction Assisted Liposuction, Vaser Liposuction, Laser Liposuction, Water Jet Liposuction, Power Assisted Liposuction.I chose Laser Lipolysis and underwent the procedure 2 months back. I got flatter tummy and good shape. I am happy with best liposuction result.Thank you sir and I recommend him as he is best Cosmetic Surgeon in Pune.
