Lip fillers with a 'Natural' result

Lip fillers with a 'Natural' result


We frequently see patients wanting 'Lip Fillers'. Their ages can range from 18 through to 50. In the market in Australia, there are many different types of Dermal Fillers that can be injected into your lips and around your mouth. All the lip fillers we use contain a substance called hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid is a natural substance found in the body.


How do lips age?
Most women wanting their lips done do so to look 'younger'. Females, more than males have larger lips. The upper lip in girls reaches its maximum thickness by age 14 and remains that way until age 16; whereas in boys it does not reach maximum thickness until 16. Thereafter the lips of both sexes begin the slow process of thinning throughout the rest of the lifespan. Over time, in females, the profile of their lips becomes thinner, as upper lip thickness decreases, with a slight increase in lower lip thickness

What can we do about it?
First and foremost, we need to look after ourselves. Its very important we use UV protection and drink plenty of fluids. This will ensure the integrity of our skin and tissues over time.

Another option is Hyaluronic Acid based lip fillers. At Cosmétique, we carry all major brands of lip fillers to match the filler to your age and the shape of your face. 

Our aim is to ensure we enhance your lips so they look 'natural' and 'youthful'. Please consider the case study (patient) below. Ms P is a 26 year old healthy patient who wanted to increase the size of her upper and lower lip in proportion to match the contours of her face. Given Ms P has well proportioned facial features, it is very important that we do not breach the constrains of her natural proportions or else the outcome will look 'fake'.

In this case, we used a very premium soft filler to the lip starting around the vermillion border or the frame of the lips. This is the structure that usually disappears first with the ageing process. following that, we re created the cupids bow and injected specifically to recreate the heart shape in the middle of the lips. The end result is youthful, full and natural looking lips that create an incredible frame for the smile. 

The key with cosmetic surgery is not to discard your natural features and but rather add perfection to the existing canvas to highlight your natural beauty.
