Full lips have long been viewed as a symbol of beauty, youth and sensuality. If you aren’t naturally blessed with a perfect pout, lip fillers can help you cheat Mother Nature by creating fuller, more beautiful lips, in proportion with your other features.
A full but natural-looking pout can be achieved with cosmetic injectables designed specifically for the lips. In skilled and experienced hands, lip enhancement using fillers can add volume, create a more defined shape and lip border, balance any asymmetries and make the lips harmonise with the rest of the face. These days, the aim is to subtly accentuate the mouth, rather than looking ‘overdone’.
Lip enhancement is a very customisable procedure; it’s all about working with your unique features to create a look designed just for you. Most people don’t necessarily want a radically different lip size and shape, but are more interested in replacing volume and definition lost through the ageing process, or correcting asymmetries to bring the lips into balance.
Dermal filler injections are the most popular method for lip augmentation, and many fillers have dual benefits of both adding volume and attracting hydration at the same time.
Lip augmentation is a relatively simple procedure; it takes less than 30 minutes, with minimal discomfort and no downtime. Prior to treatment you may have your lip area numbed with a local anaesthetic cream to make the treatment as comfortable as possible.
After the procedure you can expect some swelling and possibly some bruising, but this is temporary and should subside after a few days in typical cases.
Results can last anywhere from a few months to a year or even longer, dependent on the type of filler used and how your body responds to it.
A good lip augmentation should ideally complement the overall appearance of your face, be age-appropriate and not be immediately obvious. As with all types of cosmetic enhancement procedures, the best results are when they are performed by experienced and expert injectors.
