FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS | LIP ENHANCEMENT

 

WHAT IS INJECTABLE LIP ENHANCEMENT?

Injectable lip enhancement is the procedure of strategically injecting dermal fillers into parts of the lip and surrounding lip areas to enhance, shape, or add volume to the lips and reduce surrounding wrinkles. Volume loss of the lips occurs naturally with time, and replacing this lost volume can result in more youthful looking lips.

Enhancing the lips is not always about enhancing just the vermilion or red part of the lips. Filling around the lips may be just as important as filling the lips themselves. For example, correcting the fine upper lip lines, or lifting the corners of the mouth canal is just as important as enhancement of the lips themselves. Correcting one without the other can lead to an imbalance in the overall appearance of the lips.

Lips should not be over-filled and with proper techniques they can be made fuller yet still look natural. Natural lip rejuvenation requires the expertise and experience of the doctor as the result depends very much on the doctor's technique.

Dr Morley aims to enhance lips so that they are proportional to the rest of the face, as well as the upper lip being proportional to the lower lip. Our philosophy is to enhance your lips so that the result is natural, as if you were born with them like that.

HOW IS INJECTABLE LIP ENHANCEMENT PERFORMED?

Injectable lip enhancement is performed with dermal fillers. Dr Morley has his preferred product which is a natural, soft textured hyaluronic gel. Due to regulations set by the TGA, the exact name of the dermal fillers used in lip enhancement cannot be used.
