About lip fillers
Lip augmentation is usually performed using dermal filler material, which is injected into the lips until the desired shape or plumpness is achieved. The process is minimally invasive, needing little recovery time and the filler that is injected into the lips is not permanent and is naturally broken down over time.
The lip filler procedure
The most common fillers contain compounds with a likeness to hyaluronic acid, a natural compound found in the body that help increase the volume in your lips.
- A local numbing gel is applied to help ease discomfort throughout the treatment. In some cases an injection may be given to you that completely numbs your lips
- The surgeon marks the areas of your lips that are to be injected
- Once marked, the surgeon will use small needles to inject the filler into the marked areas of your lips
- After the injections have finished, you may be given an ice pack to help ease any discomfort
About lip implants
Lip implant surgery, also referred to as lip augmentation, attempts to rectify thin or uneven lips in order to make them appear larger or fuller.
This procedure is growing in popularity in the UK, especially among women who are unhappy that their lips appear too thin or shapeless and wish for a more youthful complexion.
The main difference between this kind of surgery and lip filler surgery is that its results are permanent.
The lip implant procedure
Permanent implants are popular because it means patients do not have to return for repeated procedures to obtain their desired appearance. The operation is performed under general anaesthetic and generally lasts for half an hour.
Two tiny incisions are made in the corners of the mouth, followed by a longer incision along the lining of the lips to insert the implant. Once the implants have been inserted and the procedure completed, the patient is left with permanent implants in their lips.
Examples of negligence
If something goes wrong, or you are not happy with the results, It is very difficult and expensive to have implants removed.
Typical problems you may encounter which suggest negligence on the part of the surgeon or clinic include:
- Asymmetric or mis-shapen lips
- Inappropriate scarring
- Overfilling of lips creating inappropriate swelling of the lips or ‘trout pout’
