Lips. We love to see them and kiss them. Second to the eyes, they draw the most attention when we communicate with the people around us. Lips are sensual, but also play an important functional role in communication. In youth, our lips are characterized by well-defined contours and full volume, with the lower lip being fuller than the upper.
With time, our lips, which are very important to our facial appearance, reflect the aging process. The key signs of aging in lips are seen in the loss of volume, definition and contour. Also, it is common to notice wrinkles and dryness that can also be accompanied by a decent in the corners of the lips. All these signs may affect our overall sense of attractiveness.
To tackle some of these unwanted signs of aging and restore more youthful lips, dermal fillers are an excellent option that is safe and requires little downtime. Below we will answer some frequent questions about the use of fillers to restore lip shape and volume.
Will my lips look natural with fillers?
Many patients are wary of using dermal fillers for lip augmentation because they have seen the unnatural, “duck-lips” as a result of poor filler application. However, natural and voluptuous lips can be achieved by adhering to the following rule when applying fillers: Respect their natural anatomy. Fillers should be applied to the body of the lips as well as the margin or lip white roll. The ratio of the upper lip to the lower lip must also be respected in order to maintain the normal outline and contour of beautiful, natural lips. When these primary conditions are met, filler application for lips is a great option for desirable, augmented lips.
Is the application of fillers into the lips painful?
Filler application is generally painful if no attempt is made to anesthetize the area first. When done correctly, however, filler application is relatively painless. The professional applying the filler should perform a nerve block before the application. The nerve block is minimally painful and ensures numbing of the lips so that very little, if no pain, is felt during the procedure.
