Our clinic has seen an increase in patients inquiring about lip enhancement procedures recently and most specifically, lip augmentation treatments. Patients request lip augmentation for a number of reasons, but most commonly it is because they are unhappy with the natural shape of their lips, or they have developed thin or wrinkled lips as a result of the aging process, and would like to restore a more youthful appearance.
Lip enhancement is one of the most commonly requested non-surgical procedures at our practice and consistently provides beautiful results using dermal fillers or fat transfer procedures. This relatively simple procedure can increase lip volume and reduce the occurrence of “lipstick lines” by filling in creases along the border of the lips. We believe that restoring natural-looking volume is typically tied to the highest level of patient satisfaction.
There are a variety of procedures that are used to perform lip enhancements. Most commonly, we will perform Lip Augmentation with Dermal Fillers, or Lip Augmentation with Fat Transfer. Dermal fillers are the least invasive form of lip augmentation, and can be performed in about 30 minutes, with topical anaesthesia as needed.
Our clinic uses a variety of fillers that are supplied from Galderma and Allergan, primarily Restylane and Juverderm range. Each of these suppliers has different strengths and weaknesses to gain the desired result and outcome. “Most of our clients, even the ones who have had fillers previously, do not realise that there are different forms of filler.
Dermal fillers are made of hyaluronic acid and come in a whole array of strengths with degrees of firmness and softness and with different consistencies for lifting abilities. Not one filler does everything. To get the most natural effect you have to use a variety to treat the various skins concerns. As little as .5ml of dermal filler can restore a beautifully defined lip edge.
A natural and successful result is primarily down to finding a talented cosmetic injector and it’s essential to only ever undergo any cosmetic treatments from a credible clinic where you’ll be seen by a medically trained professional. An ever increasing number of our patients are looking for a more subtle enhancement from fillers, rather than a dramatic make-over. “Less is usually the best”
