Collagen Lip Injections have become a popular way to get plump, fuller lips. You can find lots of information about collagen lip injections in magazines, on television talk shows and of course online, but how much of it is true? I have done some research and will share with you what I have found.
STEP 1: GET THE FACTS
I have done some research about collagen lip injections and have learned these basic important details:
STEP 2: GET YOUR DOCTORâ€™S ADVICE
As with any medical procedure, you should consult your family physician before making a decision. Your family doctor knows all of your possible risk factors and other details that could be important in your decision making process. Tell your PCP what you want and when you want it done. He/she should be able to offer you sound advice and/or warnings about collagen lip injections and whether it is safe for you. There are certain medical conditions like diabetes, for instance, that can make collagen lip injections a risky decision. Please make sure you are honest and open when discussing this with your Dr.
STEP 3: GET A CONSULTATION
After seeking advice from your doctor, if you decide that getting a collagen lip injection is for you, make sure you choose a surgeon that offers consultations. There are things that your surgeon will need to know, and things you need to ask. Take in pictures and examples of what you want. Donâ€™t be afraid to be specific. You want this surgeon to let you know if youâ€™re asking for something that can be done. Also, collagen lip injections are made from refined bovine collagen and contain Lidocaine (a local anesthetic). Some people have allergic reactions to these and you should make sure your surgeon give you an allergy spot test to determine if you are one.
I hope that I have helped you to learn more of what you need to know about Collagen Lip Injections. Please do your own research and fact finding to make sure that you are making the right decision about collagen lip injections. Take care.
