Lip Fillers

What are Lip Fillers?

Also called as lip pout or lip enhancement, it is a non surgical procedure that will give you fuller plumper lips by adding volume to the lips. The most common method to do so is by injecting a dermal filler. Dr. Deepam Shah is the best dermatologist for Lip fillers treatment in Mumbai. Consult Today!

What is the type of filler used in lips?

  • Hyaluronic acid – Most commonly used as it is a natural substance found in the body. ( Preferred at Viva Aesthetic clinic)
  • Collagen – Not used lately because of the risk of allergic reaction
  • Fat – Unpredictable results

Why choose fillers?

  • Lip fillers are for everyone who wish to enhance their lips and attain more defined, fuller and sensual lips.
  • Fuller and symmetrical lips are a mark of beauty and youth.
  • The treatment is non-invasive with virtually no recovery time; one can resume normal activities immediately after the treatment.
  • Non-permanent and will naturally dissipate.
  • It is a semi-permanent treatment.

What is the procedure for the lip augmentation?

  • Before injecting, anesthesia can be given to ease discomfort or if the filler has lignocaine in it then it can be carried out without any numbing agent.
  • Areas are marked where procedure has to be carried out.
  • Filler is injected using a very fine needle- Lip Cannula Injection which is prefilled with the filler material.
    • This is most commonly performed with the 27- or 30-gauge thin needle.

  • Following the injection, ice may be given to control swelling.
  • The product is slightly massaged and the patient is counseled about the swelling of the lips which would increase in the next 24 hours.

After 2 days when the swelling reduces the lips will look natural and fuller and softer.
