About Lip Augmentation using hyaluronic acid fillers
The length of time the filler may last will depend on the individual patient. In fact, HA fillers will last between 4-6 months.
But if you are thinner and has a higher metabolic rate, the solution will get broken down much quicker. That way the filler may not last for long.
The entire operation takes about 15-20 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.
