Get That Perfect Pout!

Lip augmentation is the new craze among the youth to get fuller, plumper lips. This is a simple lunch hour procedure where fillers made of sterile hyaluronic acid are injected into the upper and the lower lips to increase their volume and enhance their shape. There are also other permanent ways to augment the lips using surgical methods and implants. However, temporary tillers are the most preferred option.

Why Lip Fillers

People with thin lips or asymmetrical lips can get lip tillers to increase their volume and proportion. The shape, size and volume of the lips should be in harmony with the rest of the facial features. An experienced aesthetic physician can assess the lips and recommend tillers accordingly. Some women due to genetic reasons or due to ageing. have hanging lip corners that can be lifted with tillers for a more youthful look. Also, younger women like to have more contoured lips with a pout and this can be achieved with lip tillers. When one has thin lips, it tends to appear thinner when one smiles, fillers can help make the lips look fuller.

The Lip Fillers

After a detailed assessment of your facial proportions and understanding your expectations, an aesthetic physician explains what is going to be done to suit your requirements. The amount of fillers needed, where they are going to be injected and what is anticipated next, are discussed.

Fillers are injected into the upper and lower vermillion border (lip borders) and the wet dry border of the lip (pulp of the lip) depending on the amount of volume required and the type of the lips. Depending on the lip structure, your philtrum column (vertical lines in the centre of the upper lip) can be recreated for a more defined look.

Fillers can also be injected into the upper lip in such a way that a pout appears especially for those who really want one. As mentioned earlier, injecting fillers in the corners of the mouth can lift them up for a more happy appearance. While injecting in any of these areas on the lips, asymmetry if any, is also corrected.
