Lip Augmentation with lip fillers –
Lip Enhancement is a non-surgical cosmetic procedure done with the help of lip fillers, which uses synthetic or biological products to safely enhance or augment the lips. Stacey may use a variety of products including Belotero Balance ® and RHA2 and other Teosyal ® fillers to achieve beautiful and natural lips.
Stacey understands that the greatest fear of patients seeking lip enhancement is an overdone, unnatural result. They too find such a look unacceptable and work with every client to make results appear natural and not overdone.
Lip augmentation is widely sought out by models, actors and of course women and men of all occupations for beautiful, yet natural, lip enhancement. The procedure generally takes about 30 minutes after the lips are gently numbed using lidocaine. As the lips may appear a bit swollen for 3-5 days, it is best to plan ahead before a special date or event.
Who is an ideal candidate for lip enhancement?
Anybody who desires to have fuller or more defined lips. Men and women are both candidates for this procedure.
Is anaesthesia used during lip enhancement?
Yes, your lips will be numbed so that you feel zero or minimal discomfort. Usually, lidocaine is used to numb the lips before treatment or a topical anaesthetic gel.
How is the actual procedure performed? Is it painful?
Stacey injects the desired treatment area, using a very fine needle, with dermal fillers such as Belotero® or Teosyal®.
Some minor discomfort, stinging, or throbbing can occur, however numbing of the area beforehand will minimise any discomfort. And the use of ice afterwards.
What is the downtime after the procedure?
Patients can typically return to their normal activities immediately after the procedure.
What is the intended result of having lip enhancement?
The intention is to give you the fuller lips you desire. For some patients with very thin lips, the goal may be to have a more balanced appearance. For some patients, very thick and sexy lips are the goal, and for some other patients, it is a defined edge to the lip or a return to more youthful looking lips.
