Lippenvergrösserung in Zug

Lip augmentation in Zug

Plump, curved lips represent beauty and sensuality, but some people’s natural lips are straight and thin, which can give their faces a grim, tense look. The lips can also lose their youthful volume and contour as part of the natural aging process. Aesthetic medicine offers several methods of restoring lip volume using fillers. The most commonly used material is hyaluronic acid, which is naturally found in the human body, making it well-tolerated and low-risk. It also keeps the lips soft and provides very natural looking results.

Here at my clinic in Zug, I want to help give you beautiful, full lips that harmonize with the rest of your face. “Rubber-dinghy” lips (oversized, extremely puffy lips) are never my goal—they make a person’s face look completely artificial. At your personal consultation session, you and I will discuss whether lip contouring using hyaluronic acid would be a suitable treatment method in your situation.

Why hyaluronic acid?

Hyaluronic acid is a protein essential to the human body; connective tissue contains a particularly high percentage. Because it is capable of binding a great deal of water, hyaluronic acid is often used in aesthetic medicine as a filler, for example to smooth wrinkles or contour individual areas (cheeks, mouth, etc.). Though the hyaluronic acid compounds used in treatment are artificially manufactured, they are so similar to naturally occurring hyaluronic acid that the body can break them down almost completely—and allergic reactions should theoretically be next to impossible.

Another good filler material is the body’s own fat tissue. The fat is harvested using liposuction (e.g., from the stomach, the thighs, the upper arms, etc.) and specially processed before being injected into the destination areas, where it is soon incorporated into the surrounding tissue. Fat grafting provides long-lasting or even permanent plumping effects. This method is used in a variety of procedures, such as breast augmentation, Brazilian butt lifts, wrinkle treatment, anti-aging skin treatment, and lip augmentation.

The consultation appointment

I adjust the lip contouring process to each of my patients individually, which is why we start with a personal consultation appointment so that I can find out what you want and expect. Once we have discussed what is bothering you and what changes you would like to make, I will explain the lip augmentation process to you and answer any questions you may have. Together, we will develop a treatment plan that fits your needs and will provide natural, attractive results. Patients do not usually need to make any special preparations before having their lips contoured. If you take prescription blood thinners, I would be glad to advise you on ways to minimize the risk of bruising.

The procedure

Lip treatments are usually done on an outpatient basis, and generally take no longer than 30 minutes. We will start by applying a numbing cream to your lips, since they are particularly sensitive and require special care. After that, I use a thin cannula to inject the filler—usually hyaluronic acid—directly beneath the skin of the lips. The exact process will vary depending on what your specific lips are lacking (e.g., volume, contour, symmetry); modern aesthetic medicine offers several methods of shaping naturally beautiful-looking lips.

If desired, we can also contour your lips using autologous (= your own) fat and blood. To do this, I inject several small deposits of the chosen filler beneath the skin, which allows me to model the results for an even more natural look. My patients never have to worry about ending up with rubber-dinghy lips—I place great importance on individual, natural results for all of my procedures.

  • Lip augmentation: Recovery and follow-up care

    After a brief recovery period at the clinic, you will be able to go straight home. The procedure is not typically associated with any further restrictions—you should be ready to return to work and social life the following day. Some people experience mild swelling or redness for a few days; regular cooling will help bring it down. You will want to wait at least 24 hours before consuming hot food or beverages, and before applying lip balm or lipstick.

  • Are there any risks?

    Minimally invasive lip augmentation is low-risk and largely painless. Side effects like swelling and redness rarely last for more than a few days. When the procedure is performed by an experienced expert, the risk of complications like bruising, changes in sensation, or infection is very low.

  • Costs of lip enhancement

    Lip contouring costs vary from person to person, depending on factors such as how much filler is used. As such, we can only offer a price estimate after meeting with you and examining you. As part of your personal consultation appointment, I will gladly explain how much lip augmentation and contouring will cost in your case.

Lip lifts

Surgical lip enhancement

Minimally invasive injections are not the only method of enhancing lips; we can also plump them surgically. To perform a lip lift, I remove a thin strip of tissue from between the nose and the upper lip, and then suture the area again. This lifts the lip slightly so that more “red” is visible, which makes the lips look larger and fuller. This procedure results in lips that are permanently fuller, though it is performed relatively infrequently.
