Possible Complications of Lip Implants
Lip Implants or lip augmentation is a safe procedure. It has a lesser chance of having complications and risks, however it is still important to take note that any surgical procedure can always have complications and risks no matter how prepared your surgeon is.
One common complication that can happen is having infection. It can always happen to any surgical procedure and Lip Implants are no exception. That is why it is important that the surgeon should monitor his/her patient. When this happens, surgeon will prescribe you antibiotics to clear up the infection but if there’s no progress, the lip implant will have to be removed until there is complete healing of infection. Some patients may also have excessive postoperative bleeding; this may need a second surgery to stop the flow of blood in that specific area. There is also a possibility that the body will reject the lip implants, in this case, the implants should be removed immediately. They can migrate and a second procedure should be done to adjust the alignment.
As I’ve said, Lip augmentation is not an exception to possible complication. It’s always better to talk to you surgeon about any worries you feel or any questions prior to the surgery. To minimize these complications, you should take the medical history properly and accurately. You should tell you doctor if you have any allergies or if you have any history of bad scarring like keloids, you should also state the medications you are taking whether they are prescribe or non-prescribed because it may interact with the materials used, injections, medications that the doctor will use. You should thoroughly discuss you any medical condition to your surgeon prior to surgery or even before deciding to go through surgery. Safety is the primary importance, so if you want to have lip implants, do it right.
Throughout my more than 40 years in practice, many new products and trends have presented themselves. Usually I have avoided jumping on bandwagons and in retrospect most of those avoidances were wise choices. When the PermaLip procedure was presented to me in a most thoughtful and well fashioned manner, including living models to see and palpate, I immediately recognized it for what it was. It is a simple, low risk,reversible, affordable procedure that would engender a high demand amongst my patients. In fact I underestimated that demand and recognizing the universal satisfaction my patients experienced, I was motivated to have it performed on myself. I am now a new younger appearing me and (if possible) more handsome than ever. It is a great procedure!
