Cosmetic lip augmentation consists of the enlargement and reshaping of otherwise normal lips to improve their dimensional relation with the patient's nose, teeth, and surrounding facial structures. The appearance of the lips is determined by the spatial relation of the lip structures with the teeth in a 3-dimensional space and by their function during animation and speech.

Lip enhancement is a well-known plastic surgery operation for men and women in their 20s. That's largely because there are so many ways to plump up your lips, ranging from surgical to non-surgical options. Lip filler, for example, is a sought-after injectable because it's simple, fast, and risk-free. Nevertheless, there are other methods that can enhance your pout and give you lavish lips. The question is, should you do this? It's up to you to decide.

Your decision to ‘plump' or not is a spin-off from the Instagram generation. where large, super-kissable lips are part of the insta wallpaper.  If you can get a few more likes or followers to your latest selfie then a hour at the cosmetic surgeon is a small price to pay.

Let's start with a discussion of the various methods available to give your lips some juicy, kissable appeal. By far, injectable techniques are the most popular. They are likely to cost a bit less than surgical options and you can usually have the treatment done swiftly. Visit the office, have the treatment, and then go on about your day.

On planet-celebrity,  you have different options as well, although the technique used is mostly the same. Your plastic surgeon or aesthetician will inject a filler after examining your lips, their shape and current fullness, and the planes and proportion of your face. A qualified, skilled doctor will ensure that the fillers will add to your appearance and work with your facial form.

As for the filler used, that will hinge on the surgeon. Fillers such as Juvederm, Perlane, Restylane, and Voluma are the most typical options. You can discuss the pros and cons of each with your plastic surgeon.

You can opt for surgical lip augmentation, as well. Lip implants offer a more permanent solution than lip fillers, which need to be repeated every six to eight months. Implants also allow you to choose more volume and fullness. Your lips are first sterilised, then anesthetized. This is usually a procedure that occurs in the office, so it's fairly fast, too. Recuperation time shouldn't last long at all.

Fat grafting is yet another alternative. As the name suggests, the process entails taking fat tissue from a different spot on your body and infusing it into your lips. The cosmetic surgeon will harvest fat from around your belly button, purify it, and then inject it to your lips. This procedure is good for five years or more and doesn't tend to take longer than half an hour.

Once you know your options, we should discuss why you might want to look into lip augmentation in your 20s. Lips are big right now. Look at all the cosmetic lip kits available. They're fantastic, but you may get tired of over-drawing your lip liner to make your lips look fuller. Lush lips are gorgeous, but filling them in with makeup takes a lot of time, and not everyone has that skill. Lip fillers and other types of augmentation can save time and even money, at least in the long run.

When performed by a reputable surgeon, lip augmentation also looks natural. That can't always be said for over-lined lips. You must consult with your doctor beforehand, though. He or she will help you decide on the most flattering size and shape.

The main reason to consider plumping your pout in your 20s is that it can stave off the signs of ageing. As you age, your body simply produces less collagen. That not only causes fine lines and wrinkles to embed themselves more deeply in your skin, but it can also cause your lips to thin out and droop.

Before the Operation.

Refraini from aspirin, Motrin, Aleve, fish oil, multivitamins, and vitamin E for about a week before your appointment, as each can act as a blood-thinner and contribute to postinjection bruising.

After the Operation

After-care is minimal.

Postinjection, your life can resume—despite some fear-mongering articles you might find online. According to Green, the only thing you should stay away from is aspirin. You can even toast your new look with a glass or two of wine. “Some people say you shouldn't drink alcohol before filler because you can bruise, but I haven't seen a huge difference after,” she said. As for ice, the doctor will put a cold pack on your lips after your filler's been applied and will encourage you to use more if you're feeling sore, but there's no need sit with it for hours on end. The real swelling goes down in a day or two.

Doctors are unanimous that it makes sense: not to drinkfrom a straw right after your injections, and not sipping hot liquids— you'll still be numb and might burn yourself. Ouch.
