Lip Fillers

Subtle enhancement of definition and volume of the lips can make a huge impact on your overall look without drawing undue attention to just your lips.

Whatever your age, male or female, thinning lips will add age to the maturing face. Small changes with dermal filler can actually add significant positive impact to the overall facial appearance. Dr Patel states: “We must ensure lips are beautified so that they are age-appropriate, gender-appropriate, face-appropriate and even personality-appropriate! If you want the unsightly lips we often see on social media profiles, we will do our best to educate you on why this is such a bad idea”. If you are younger and simply just want bigger lips due to genetically thinner lips, this can also be achieved after a thorough consultation with our Doctor. However, these must still fit with your face so you get a beautification from the treatment and you must be over 18.

Dr Dev Patel has an enviable reputation for his lip filler results with some patients flying to the UK for treatment!  At Perfect Skin Solutions, for the lips we ONLY use:

  • Hyaluronic Acid (HA) fillers with optimal tissue integration
  • Fillers specifically indicated for use in lips
  • Brands with the best reputation worldwide eg Belotero, Stylage

This treatment may be for you if you are concerned by any of the following:

  • Thin lips
  • Lipstick bleeding
  • Proportional deficit: One lip needs balancing with the other
  • Kiss or smoker’s lines (lip border treated with lines)
  • Lack of shapely cupid’s bow
  • Down-turned mouth

We use the most advanced techniques to achieve a result that boosts your self-confidence. In-depth knowledge of facial ageing and anatomy, allows us to strategically place dermal filler in key points resulting in a wholly natural and youth-restoring outcome.

Why choose Perfect Skin Solutions for your Lip Fillers?

As we mention throughout all our pages on fillers, this is an art as much as science. A deep understanding of facial beauty and the psychology of beauty, allows a doctor to deliver perfect results taking your face to the peak of its aesthetic potential. Our doctors know when to say “no” and often find themselves showing a patient how – for example – treating their lips with filler would be a bad idea whilst bringing the chin into better alignment would easily add beauty to their facial profile. Put your face in our hands to ensure you get the right treatment for you. Dr Dev Patel is keen to promote his mantra of achieving a “natural look” rather than “Donatella Versace lips!” We do not do the “trout-pout look”.

Post Treatment Expectations

Post Treatment Aftercare

  • Avoid strenuous exercise and excessive sun exposure for at least 48 hours post-treatment or until any swelling subsides
  • Avoid make-up for 24 hours to injected areas.
  • Avoid firm rubbing of the treated area for 5 days
  • Avoid aspirin, St John’s Wort or Non-Steroidal Anti-inflammatories eg Ibuprofen, for a few days post-treatment. If you require such medication for medical reasons, please check with your doctor before stopping

Please note, the above aftercare is just a guide. Full aftercare advice will be given to you when you attend your appointment with us.

FAQ

We strongly discourage this line of thinking. It is understandable to think in this way when budgeting but these treatments should NOT be dictated by budget but by the desired outcome. This can ONLY be decided after thorough education and consultation following a facial assessment of your aesthetic lines and proportions. To simply go on what a friend may have had or what another practitioner has advised you, is not ideal. We want you get you thinking in a different way; a better way, that will lead to a truly amazing outcome. Typically, we would use 1ml in all patients but if work is needed on lip lines or mouth corners, or perhaps the lips are very thin, further product may be used after a few weeks.

The lips are not a forgiving area and use of poor quality fillers or simply the wrong sub-type of a reputable brand, can lead to poor results. We use 2 brands which – without a doubt – demonstrate the best tissue integration of any brand there is. The properties of the fillers are as important as the techniques used.

It is easier to talk about filler duration rather than results, as perception of our face can change over time and multiple factors can influence this. The fillers typically used in this area last 6 months. However, we do find that many of our patients who have Stylage Special Lips, enjoy their results for 9-12 months.

We take pride in the multitude of measures we implement to make your experience as comfortable as possible. We have an excellent numbing cream which works within just a few minutes. Local anaesthetic in the product means you should very quickly be pain-free at each injection site. Patients often report to us how their experience has been significantly better and indeed enjoyable, when compared to treatments elsewhere, in the past. The fact that we always have an assistant with the injector, makes a big difference to your comfort and overall experience.

All patients will have immediate swelling and this can be more obvious on waking the next morning. Most patients will report that the swelling subsides within 36-72 hours. Most get little to no bruising. However, you should always be ready to have more significant bruising and swelling. There may be some small, palpable lumps under the skin but these will rarely be a cosmetic issue and disappear in time. Full information on all potential side effects will be discussed during your consultation.

We value the process of educating our patients during the consultation process, to allow you to agree a mutually-agreed treatment plan. There is no need for you to identify what you need treated. Your full facial assessment by one of our reputable expert doctors or aesthetic practitioners, will aid you in understanding your specific needs to achieve the outcome you desire.
