How do lip fillers work?
Our lips can be one of the more vulnerable areas when it comes to ageing. As we get older, our skin thins, sometimes causing the corners of our lips to droop into a frown-like expression. It can also lead to the appearance of wrinkles and a loss of fullness to our lips.
At Cosmetic Surgery Partners London we use Juvéderm, which helps to subtly reshape and redefine the lips and adds definition to the mouth and the outline of the face. It has been specifically developed as a smooth gel to give a soft, natural feel with long-lasting effects. The gel is injected by an ultra-fine needle and fills in lip lines and wrinkles, while the hyaluronic acid retains moisture. Following the filler injection, you may experience slight redness, swelling, or bruising around the injected area. These lip fillers have a long-standing safety profile, have been in the market for a very long time and are FDA approved.

No. Botox is not preferred lip filler. It acts by way of paralysing muscles, which would normally cause wrinkles due to contraction. However, this can come with some unwanted side effects. Through our expertise we have found a natural filler such as Juvederm gives our patients the best results, which we can highly recommend.
No. This would require a more invasive, cosmetic surgery procedure.
Lip fillers are a great procedure for any patient male or female who is looking to increase or redefine the size and shape of their lips. There is no real age limit to who can have the procedure as long as they are in good health and over the age of 18.
Due to the minimal invasive nature of the procedure, there is not much in the way of a serious recovery period. Patients will be able to return to normal activities the very same day. However, it is advised you wait around a week to let the swelling in their lips go down in order to get the full benefits of the procedure.
Patients have described the effects of the procedure as a pin prick. Essentially it is a very small needle and though the procedure does sting, we can apply a local anaesthetic cream that will numb the pain and make the experience even more pleasurable.
It is not essential to take time of work. The procedure can be performed during a lunch break, but we would advise people not to go back to work unless after the procedure, as there will be some level of discomfort and swelling. If you’re not worried about giving the game away and refraining from wearing lipstick for the rest of the evening, there is no harm in returning to work the same day.
After the treatment you will be given instructions about what to do after your lip augmentation. The results of the enhancement are visible immediately but will appear slightly bigger, however as the swelling subsides you will start to see your nice and natural result.
The actual procedure takes around 30 minutes. You can have the procedure the same day right after having a consultation with one of our experts if you wish.
Although lip fillers are available at many places the benefits of having a registered cosmetic surgeon or nurse administering the treatment far outweigh any other option, the sheer experience and proven track record alone makes Cosmetic Surgery Partners London the best place for your lip filler treatment.
Before the treatment the face is cleansed to prepare the area for the lip injections. Then, Juvederm dermal filler is injected at specific locations in and around the lip by the doctor or nurse to create the definition, lift, shape and volume required. The area shall then be gently massaged to ensure that the filler is evenly distributed, settles and gives a smooth, natural appearance.
