Lip Augmentation

To gain fuller and more youthful lips, a variety of procedures are on offer that can be used alone or in combination to achieve the desired effect. The use of hyaluronic filler can achieve the desired result and depending on the type of filler used will determine the duration of action and longevity of the filler. A more permanent method is to use your own tissue (dermal strip/ fat) or an implant (silicone lip implant). These procedures are carried out under local anaesthetic and your surgeon will advise you on which procedure is best suited for you.

Is this right for me?

Lip fillers: are appropriate for anyone who would like to enhance the lip shape and volume
Surgical Lip Augmentation: this is useful in patients who do not wish to have injectable fillers or find they are absorbing the filler too quickly. This is a permanent solution for that

What does this involve?

Lip Filler: this involves injecting filler into the lips to increase the volume and enhance the shape. Numbing cream and a cold-compress is generally placed onto the area. This helps to reduce the pain and minimise the bruising.

For augmentation with an implant, the lips are injected with local anaesthetic. A tunnel is created in the lips and the implants are then introduced. The exit and entry points of the tunnel are then closed with dissolvable stitches.
