Lips-Fillers-Belvedere-Clinic

Lip fillers are currently popular in the United Kingdom with many seeking fuller, plumper lips or better symmetry to define the cupid bow. It is a procedure where a qualified and experienced practitioner injects approved dermal fillers to plump up your lips. These fillers are also known as “hyaluronic acid fillers” a substance found naturally within the body and used safely in the medical profession for many years.

The procedure is quite safe when you pick a reputable and experienced medical professional for the job. Many doctors are against the procedure being done at a beauty salon or spa.

A beautician doesn’t have the same training as a qualified medical professional, and they are not able to prescribe medication if something goes wrong. The beautician might not be able to dissolve the filler if you don’t like it.

That’s why you need to choose a qualified and experienced medical professional to get your lip filler treatment.

About Lip Augmentation using hyaluronic acid fillers

Lip augmentation with hyaluronic acidThe length of time the filler may last will depend on the individual patient. In fact, HA fillers will last between 4-6 months.

The entire operation takes about 20-40 minutes when conducted by an experienced doctor. 

You have the freedom to choose the parts of the lip that need to be filled. You can even choose one lip to be filled instead of both lips. Your doctor will advise you on the volume of filler needed to suit your facial features.
The operation is not painful or sore as some people will have you believe. Your doctor will apply a numbing cream before the procedure. Hence, you may only feel a sensation similar to someone pinching your lips. When done correctly, you won’t be able to tell the difference from your normal lips. The results are almost immediate. In fact, most patients have complained of a slight swelling for a maximum of 24 hours. After that, your lips will settle down and be that way for the next 5-6 months depending on the type of filler you used.

There is an injection that could dissolve the filler in five minutes and bring back your lips to its original status. This is only if you don’t like the results you get after the procedure.

Our doctor is the best person to advise whether you need to do both lips, one lip, or part of one lip depending on your facial features. It is advisable to increase the size of your lips gradually for a more natural look. You should not exercise, get a facial, or massage the face soon after the procedure. This can increase the blood flow to the face.

8 FAQs About Lip Fillers Answered

Lip fillers remain one of the most popular cosmetic procedures in the UK and one of the top Google searches when it comes to cosmetic surgery. Below we explore 8 frequently asked questions about lip fillers.

FAQs-about-lip-fillers-

What are they made from ?

Lip fillers are made of Hyaluronic Acid (HA), which is naturally produced within the body and which are found in the connective tissue. This is basically a large sugar molecule, and as it is produced naturally, the body happily accepts it when injected into your lips.

Are lip fillers safe ?

As with any cosmetic surgery there are a few minor risks, but these are dramatically reduced when you use an experienced and qualified cosmetic surgeon. They will also conduct a full medical history and discuss any potential risk factors.

Is the procedure painful ?

When the treatment is undertaken by a professional, then you should feel no pain. They should administer a topical anaesthetic before injection, so although you will feel slight pressure, it shouldn’t feel painful.

What will happen during the consultation ?

It is vital to have a consultation prior to treatment. The cosmetic surgeon should take a full medical history and listen to your concerns. They will then talk about the best treatment option for you and outline the procedure.

What happens during treatment ?

You will be helped to feel at ease, and then a topical cream anaesthetic will be applied to your lips. A small needle is then used to inject the required amount of filler. The entire procedure should take no more than twenty minutes.

Will there be a lot of blood ?

This is something that many individuals worry about, but there really is no need. As small, fine needles are used, they will only create tiny pinpricks of blood, that stop bleeding incredibly quickly.

Will there be much swelling ?

The amount of swelling very much depends upon the amount of filler that has been injected and the skill of the person injecting it. Swelling should be minimal and should visibly reduce within a few days.

How long do lip fillers last ?

The good news is that lip fillers should last up to 6 months, and in many cases, they can last up to 12 months.
