Lip enhancement Baden-BadenLip augmentation and contouring
For many women—and an increasing number of men—beautifully contoured, full lips are a symbol of attractiveness and sensuality. Some people think the lips they were born with are uneven or too thin, and age causes the lips to lose volume over time as well. Getting plump, youthful lips back doesn’t necessarily require extensive surgery: lip augmentation in Baden-Baden is a gentle, non-surgical method of plumping and shaping lips. The procedure uses hyaluronic acid fillers, a safe substance found naturally in the body—and one that also yields particularly natural results as a dermal filler.

Reasons to get lip correction in Baden-Baden
Patients have a variety of reasons for wanting their lips plumped and contoured. For one, just like any feature, lips vary widely from person to person, and many people naturally have very thin lips. Others feel that their upper and lower lips look mismatched or uneven. Besides genetics, the natural ageing process can also affect how lips look: over time, lips lose volume and small creases develop around the mouth. The lip fillers we use for lip injections in Baden-Baden can give lips their youthful volume back as well as filling in and smoothing small wrinkles in the mouth area.
Among other things, naturally beautiful lips are characterized by:
- Even, symmetrical shape
- Clear contouring
- A natural red
- An aesthetically curved Cupid’s bow
- No wrinkles
- Smoothness, suppleness
Lip augmentation in Baden-Baden: goals and expected results
Lip enhancement in Baden-Baden can give your lips the shape and size you want. Making sure your lips harmonize with the rest of your features plays a big role in finding your personal ideal. In other words, when doing lip plumping in Baden-Baden, we make sure to adapt the procedure to make sure that the results will be natural-looking and well-proportioned. The procedure can also smooth out small lip creases.
Preparing for lip enhancement in Baden-Baden
Lip correction in Baden-Baden does not require a great deal of preparation. Before the procedure, patients should avoid taking any medications that affect blood coagulation, such as aspirin or certain vitamins, as this could increase the likelihood of bruising. Prior to the procedure, your board-certified plastic surgeon will give you detailed information about these substances as part of your consultation. He will also explain how exactly the procedure works, describe any potential alternative treatments, and discuss possible risks involved in lip correction. For optimum lip enhancement results, avoid alcohol, nicotine and intense sun exposure.
What materials do you use?
Here at KASG Ästhetik, we plump up lips using all-natural materials. Hyaluronic acid is found naturally in the human body. It is an important part of connective tissue, and among other things, it helps lend your skin firmness and elasticity. It can also bind a great deal of fluid, which makes it a safe, effective solution for compensating loss of volume.
Besides hyaluronic acid, several other substances naturally found in the body, or even drawn directly from the body, can be used in lip correction; examples include collagen or the body’s own fat reserves, extracted during liposuction and then specially processed. Natural fillers are broken down by the body’s metabolism over time, causing the effects of the lip enhancement procedure to fade. If desired, patients can then repeat the treatment to maintain the results.
Permanent fillers for permanent results?
Long-lasting lip fillers containing synthetic ingredients (e.g., silicone) can provide permanent results, because the body cannot break these synthetic compounds down, so they remain in the tissue. However, reputable specialists in plastic and cosmetic surgery advise against using permanent fillers, because it is difficult or impossible to determine what long-term effects or health risks they entail. Harmful changes in tissue may occur, possibly even years after the procedure. There is also a chance that patients will be able to feel the synthetic compound, or that the filler will slide out of place, creating undesirable results.
Lip injections: the surgical procedure
Lip correction can mean injecting hyaluronic acid into only your upper or lower lip or correcting both at once. After disinfecting and administering localized anesthesia to the treatment area, your plastic surgeon will inject several small deposits of hyaluronic acid directly into your lips using extremely fine needles, until your lips are the desired size and shape. Hyaluronic acid binds a great deal of water, so it can compensate for loss of volume and elasticity, which is why lip augmentation in Baden-Baden will leave your lips looking fuller and more sensuous.
Aftercare following lip correction in Baden-Baden
Immediately after undergoing lip enhancement in Baden-Baden, patients are generally ready to go back out in public immediately. Occasionally, the treated area may still be a bit red or swollen, so we advise not scheduling any important events or appointments for the first three days after your session. Regular cooling will help alleviate any redness or swelling more quickly. You will need to avoid applying any care products or makeup to your lip area for the first twelve hours. Bruising is a rare occurrence, but if it does happen, you can cover the bruises with makeup starting the day after your lip augmentation in Baden-Baden. These bruises, if they appear at all, will fade on their own within a few days. We advise avoiding saunas or extensive sunbathing for the first week or two after the procedure.
Is there any problem with repeating lip enhancement in Baden-Baden?
Since we only perform lip contouring in Baden-Baden using medically approved, high-quality materials, it is a very safe, natural procedure. It will take about six months for your body to break down the lip fillers. After that, there is no problem with repeating the procedure to plump and shape your lips again. Of course, we will start with another comprehensive examination to rule out any potential contraindications (e.g., localized inflammation or infection).
Possible risks with lip injections
Generally speaking, lip augmentation with hyaluronic acid is considered a very low-risk treatment method that rarely causes side effects. Mild swelling, redness, or small bruises are normal bodily reactions and generally harmless; they go away after a few hours to a few days. Applying cold packs to your lips regularly can help speed along the healing process. Adverse reactions to the treatment (allergies, intolerance, rejection) are not generally expected, since hyaluronic acid occurs naturally in the body, but if in doubt, we can do a tolerance test before proceeding with lip enhancement in Baden-Baden. Nodules and uneven results are extremely rare occurrences. Having the lip enhancement procedure done by a specially trained, experienced specialist in plastic and cosmetic surgery will minimize your risk of complications or side effects.
Other methods of aesthetic lip correction
Besides injections of hyaluronic acid, autologous fat, or collagen, lip correction can also be performed as an invasive operation. Surgical lip enhancements, known as lip lifts, involve removing a small strip of tissue between the nose and the mouth in order to lift the upper lip, making more of the lip’s natural red visible and significantly shortening the distance between the upper lip and the nose. This procedure requires a great deal of expertise and experience of a board-certified cosmetic surgeon, and does not actually increase lip volume, which can only be achieved through injection treatments.
