Lip enhancement is one of the most popular cosmetic procedures and involves injecting dermal filler into the lips to give them a youthful plumpness and add more definition.
As well as changing the lip size for those who desire bigger lips, lip augmentation can be used to correct a host of imperfections, including wrinkles around the lip area, improving asymmetries, redefining the Cupid’s bow or simply replacing lost volume due to the natural ageing process.
For the past century, full, succulent, luxurious lips have been a must for Hollywood’s screen queens. From the silent movie star Clara Bow to modern-day mogul Angelina Jolie, our screens have been adorned with plump lips. And when a star doesn’t have them, she typically gets them – typically with dermal filler injections.
Cosmetic injectables have come a long way from the ‘trout pout’ days of over-filling lips, and with the procedure taking around 30 minutes it can be easily performed in a lunch hour with no downtime – meaning you can go back to work immediately, although some swelling will always occur and many will prefer to rest at home afterwards.
Results can last anywhere from a number of months to a number of years, depending on the filler that is used and your individual response to it.
While lip augmentation has a very good safety record, it’s important to ensure that your injector has the required training and credentials for the product they are injecting.
The team of experienced injectors at the Cosmetic Medicine Centre tailors results to your individual preferences and desires, as well as taking into account your overall facial structure, with an emphasis on natural-looking size and shape enhancement.
