the Filler facts

by Doctor Kate

It is possible to administer natural lip fillers.  My first time lip patients always say, I don’t want to look like a trout or fake, and I am very experienced in injecting very natural lip fillers. A huge part of a lip filler consultation is discussing what you want. There are options for different types of filler as well as different amounts. If we are aiming for a significant increase in volume, that can still be achieved naturally by gradually building up the lips over a series of treatments to avoid the dreaded ‘sausage lip’ effect. 
Different types of fillers are needed for different areas of your face. There is a whole range of fillers from very liquid and a honey style consistency which I use for the under eye area through to robust and lifting fillers which I use on clients for your chin and jawline. I use Hyaluronic acid fillers which give a fantastic natural result, but also can be dissolved in case of any complications – as a doctor, your safety is my paramount concern at all times. 
Fillers last different lengths of time in different areas of your face. As a rule of thumb after 6 months 50% of filler will have been broken down by your body and remember everyone is different. Exciting new studies I have read are showing that the rejuvenating effect of fillers seem to last much, much longer today than ever before. 
Unlike Botox, fillers will give an immediate result. They work by replacing volume with Hyaluronic acid instantly but then continue to absorb water and the final results are visible after a month. 
Fillers contain anaesthetic, so they are not too painful. However, the one exception is the lips, so I always apply liberal amounts of numbing cream to my patients lips, not very glamorous as you do look like a toddler who has eaten a Mr Whippy ice cream, but it has a fantastic effect on making you as comfortable as possible for the injections.  As a medical doctor, I can assure you that I have injected hundreds of patients’ lips and am extremely skilled at this procedure.
