Pros and Cons:

Enhancement of the lips can produce a face that is more proportionate to the rest of the body, particular for those who are interested in enhancing their body profile in the same treatment.

Lip enhancement also helps to boost the patient’s self-confidence by making her/him self-assured in every look

Involves quick recovery and minimal, short term side-effects. Patients should only experience mild pain and discomfort pain after having this treatment.

Most lip enhancement treatments are simple and quick. They require only 20 to 35 minutes to complete.

Lip filling with hyaluronic acid delivers the most natural results. This is due to the fact the hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring substance in the human body. This treatment significantly improves the appearance of the lips, by making them look fuller and softer than before.

Last but not the least, the cost. We must highlight the low cost of lip augmentation. In general, you need to spend only a few dollars to get the desired lip shape. Non-surgical lip enhancement is an affordable treatment. While you may need to take multiple sessions to see optimal results, but still the treatment is cheap.


You can expect to face complications with a surgical option like a lips implant. There is a risk of bleeding, swelling, and infection after having this type of surgery. The easiest way to avoid such complications is the selection of an experienced practitioner. Such practitioners are capable of presenting an ideal outcome without problems. So, prior to the treatment, you should look into the credentials, and background of the practitioner in order to prevent botched treatment.

Lip augmentation with an implant is a little costly. Although it is a minor cosmetic surgery, the overall treatment cost may be very high. This is because surgical procedures demand great care and time by the practitioners.

The third main disadvantage of Lip Augmentation in Dubai & Abu Dhabi is that recovery can take a lot of time. Like after implants, your social and personal life will be disturbed for at least a month. Also, in this phase, you won’t be able to run, swim, or perform any strenuous exercise. In simple words, we can say that it involves a long downtime.

Aftercare is not simple. Even makeup would not be allowed for some time. Other than that, patients can’t have massages and sunbaths.

The results of most of the lip enhancement procedures are not instant. They don’t become visible until all the side-effects have been subsided. Also, please note that swelling takes maximum time to go away, so expect to see results after a long time.
