Ageing can have a significant impact on the appearance of your lips. With age, lips tend to thin and lose their definition. You may find that your lips have always been thin and you are looking for them to be fuller. Fine lines can form as part of the ageing process and cause lipstick to "bleed" into them. Cosmetic Surgeons London can help enhance the appearance of your lips and give them a natural fuller, plumper and luscious look. Your surgeon will use a dermal filler to give you the appearance you want.

What are dermal fillers?

Dermal fillers are substances used to make the overlying skin firmer and smoother. They are injected beneath the skin to give the effects desired. There are many dermal fillers on the market. Cosmetic Surgeons London use fillers that consist of hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid is a substance that is naturally found in the body and skin and therefore is subject to natural breakdown with time. It is less likely to produce allergic reactions compared to collagen

Are dermal fillers safe?

We use dermal fillers that are safe and have a very low incidence of allergic reaction. Cosmetic Surgeons London put your comfort and safety first. There is always a very small risk of an allergic reaction.

What does lip enhancement involve?

Lip enhancement involves the use of local anaesthetic by way of either topical creams and/or additional injections. As soon as the lip is numb the dermal filler is injected. The procedure itself takes around 20 minutes.

How long does lip enhancement last?

In most people the effects of the dermal filler last between 6-9 months. There are differences between individuals as we all vary in the way our bodies break down and absorb the filler. With no further injections, your lips will return to their previous appearance.

Are there any other methods for lip enhancement?

Your surgeon also offers other methods for lip enhancement which you may prefer. These include harvesting your own body fat and injecting this into your lips (Fat Transfer / Fat Grafting).
