How lip implants are implanted
The procedure is performed under local anaesthesia. After the mouth is numb two little incisions are made in the corners of each side of the mouth. A tunnel is then created using a small cannula, creating this cannula will make it easier and quicker for the implant to pass through. The surgeon uses a special tool to pass through the implant. Once the implant is in the surgeon will massage the lips to put the implant in the correct place. The Incisions are then stitched shut and the process is repeated on the second lip. This process can all be finished within half an hour! With any procedure, there will be swelling and soreness but using a cold compress will combat these symptoms. When moving your lips for the first days you must be careful of the Incisions to avoid infection. You will be able to return to normal activities the following day.
