The clinic applies a new unique lip contour correction method Boca® when a special dissolving thread is used, which is inserted into the lip tissue to form a desired shape of lips for a long time. The procedure is performed under local anesthesia and takes 15-40 minutes. The surface of the thread has micro bumps, which firmly attach to the lip tissues and do not allow thread migration.
Procedure results are immediately visible, the maximum effect is observed after 2-3 weeks, and remains from 5 to 6 years (depending on the individual characteristics of the body). The long-term duration of the procedure is ensured by the scarring processes occurring in the body, which form a denser tissue maintaining the contour of the lip in the area of thread insertion.
The postoperative period is short and easy: it is recommended to limit the facial muscle activity from 2 to 3 weeks after treatment, to limit strenuous physical load for one month, and to avoid facial massage procedures for one month.
This thread does not change the natural facial features; the soft mouth tissues acquire the desired contour.
This lip-shaping correction procedure can be successfully combined with hyaluronic or botulinum injections when adjusting other areas of concern. After the outcome of the procedure, it is possible to repeat a similar procedure or use other methods of lip shape correction – hyaluronic injections or fat transplantation on the lips.
