Background: Historically, full lips have been considered a symbol of beauty and youth. This is the reason why lip enhancement has become an extremely popular and requested procedure. Hyaluronic acid is the filler of choice for the majority of practitioners due to its undoubtable advantages. Many papers have been written concerning the filling materials and injection techniques but so far no proper guide was created to perform a preoperative assessment of lips in order to reach a pleasant result. Aim: Our work suggests some useful points and measures that could help the clinician to evaluate the lips themselves and in relation with the face. We called this evaluation method “liplush analysis“. Methods: All patients enrolled in our study underwent lip augmentation with HA. The amount of filler and the lip areas needing augmentation were carefully assessed applying the “liplush analysis“ before the procedure. Results: The percentage of satisfaction among the patients was stunningly high. Conclusion: We suggest “liplush analysis“when approaching lip augmentation in cosmetic practice

Abstract

Background: Historically, full lips have been considered a symbol of beauty and youth. This is the reason why lip enhancement has become an extremely popular and requested procedure. Hyaluronic acid is the filler of choice for the majority of practitioners due to its undoubtable advantages. Many papers have been written concerning the filling materials and injection techniques but so far no proper guide was created to perform a preoperative assessment of lips in order to reach a pleasant result. Aim: Our work suggests some useful points and measures that could help the clinician to evaluate the lips themselves and in relation with the face. We called this evaluation method “liplush analysis“. Methods: All patients enrolled in our study underwent lip augmentation with HA. The amount of filler and the lip areas needing augmentation were carefully assessed applying the “liplush analysis“ before the procedure. Results: The percentage of satisfaction among the patients was stunningly high. Conclusion: We suggest “liplush analysis“when approaching lip augmentation in cosmetic practice
