This is most often achieved through the injection of a dermal filler (such as hyaluronic acid) that increases your lips’ volume. Not only can this provide more voluptuous lips but it also has the added benefit of smoothing out any lines, wrinkles, or scars surrounding them as well.

How is a Lip Augmentation Performed at Clinic 360?
The area to be treated with lip augmentation is then marked and a fine-point needle is gently inserted. Through this, the injectable filler is placed in the lips. Depending on the size of the area treated, along with the amount of hyaluronic acid injected, results may last between 6 months to a year before needing a touch-up procedure.
Lip Augmentation Potential Risks
More general risks of complications associated with lip augmentation include:
- Allergic reaction to anaesthetic (lidocaine)
- Asymmetrical results
- Lumps of filler
- Ulceration of lips
- Hardening of the lips
- Allergic reaction to filler (redness, itchiness, swelling)
Lip Augmentation Recovery
Prior to your procedure, you should prepare a recovery area in your home including ice packs to reduce swelling, pillows to prop up your head when lying down, any healing salves or ointments prescribed by your doctor, and a selection of soft foods.
