Lip injections with dermal fillers are one of the most popular cosmetic treatments around the world. It is a safe and simple treatment, that can be completely individualised to suit your goals. When done properly, lip fillers will not look fake. Lip filler injections can help to improve the shape, contour and definition of your lips, and improve facial proportions and profile balance and definition. The perfect lips suit both males and females, and have the following characteristics:
- ideal top lip to bottom lip ratio for your face;
- appropriate vertical height of the upper lip;
- balanced width of the lips;
- ideal projection on the side profile view, with the top lip sitting slightly in front of the bottom lip;
- harmonious proportion with the entire face.
When performed correctly, lip fillers should have little swelling and minimal discomfort, even without topical numbing cream.

The benefits of lip fillers
When done well, lip fillers can rejuvenate your appearance. As the softest and most delicate feature of the face, special care is required when enhancing the lips with filler injections. Lip fillers are a simple and safe treatment that can restore volume, hydration, structure and shape to the lips.
The benefits of a professional lip enhancement with filler injections include:
- immediate results: lip fillers immediately add volume and hydration;
- improvement in shape and symmetry: personalised lip filler injections can improve natural lip asymmetry, and help to define the the cupid’s bow along the top lip vermilion border;
- add volume and fullness: great for smaller lips, or those that have lost volume and become wrinkled with age;
- long lasting results: new research shows that lip fillers may last a lot longer than previously though. While the companies that make filler tell us to expect results lasting from 6-12 months, more and more we are seeing lip fillers last years.

Natural lip fillers for definition and volume
Natural lip fillers have never been more popular. If you want to enhance your lips, but don’t want to look fake, it is important to choose a trusted lip filler expert. It is normal to be nervous when you first consider lip injections, everyone always is. When you look in the mirror after the initial swelling has settled, you will see a gentle plump, smoother texture, and improved shape and definition, while still looking natural. A good lip filler treatment should be undetectable to others, but still give you a nice result.
What types of lip fillers are there?
All lip fillers are made of a carbohydrate found naturally in the body. The carbohydrate found in different body tissues is called hyaluronic acid. A synthetic version of this carbohydrate is produced in a lab in gel form. this gel is what is used in lip fillers. Lip fillers give immediate and reversible results. Amongst dermal fillers, each unique type has its own characteristics. Thickness is just one characteristic of dermal filler, and overly simplifies how dermal fillers work. Other properties of dermal fillers are their elasticity, hygroscopicity (how much water the product can hold), lifting capacity, cross-linking (or entanglement), and concentration.
Different combinations of the above properties give different types of fillers. Each type will behave slightly differently in the lips.
The secret to choosing the right lip filler for you is to match the right filler to your own natural lip tissue, as well as ensuring that the product can meet your goals.
If the wrong product is selected, then you either will not see a result (unless very large quantities are used), or the lip fillers have a higher chance of becoming lumpy or migrating.
An expert in lip fillers will be able to guide you on which filler is the right one to augment your lips. When you use the right filler for the lip enhancement, the results can be natural and elegant.

The truth about lip filler that most clinics don’t want you to know
Did you know that the most common things many cosmetic clinics discuss when it comes to lip fillers are misleading and do not help you achieve the best results?
Lip filler volumes – half a ml vs. a full ml. What if you knew that it is not often that someone will actually need exactly either amount? The quantity of dermal filler required for a personalised lip enhancement can be extremely variable and will depend on the size of your natural lips, the lip tissue quality, the type of filler used, and how you would like your lips to look. Advertising lip fillers based on these quantities is a clever marketing tactic that is definitely not putting you first. Dermal filler generally comes in a 1ml syringe – if you purchase ‘half a ml’, are you getting the first half of a syringe, or the left overs of someone else’s syringe? Don’t fall for opportunistic marketing.
Lip filler types – thickness. Be careful of clinics advertising lip fillers based on ‘thickness’. This puts the onus on you to choose the correct type of filler. The injector should be the one recommending the type of lip filler based on your goals, and more importantly, based on your lip tissue type. Using the wrong type of filler for the lip tissue will either cause you to see minimal change, or increase the risk of lip filler lumps.
Lip filler longevity – how long will it last? Tempted to go back for your 6 monthly top-up? Think carefully before you do. New research shows us that lip fillers can last many years longer than previously thought. Having lip fillers too often almost always leads to migration which will give you duck lips so gradually you won’t even realise it’s happened. The best way to know if you need further lip fillers is to look at and feel your lips for any filler. Still not sure? Ask an injector you trust if it is the right time for a lip filler top up.

Frequently Asked Questions
What are lip fillers?
Lip fillers (lip augmentation, lip enhancement or lip injections) is a procedure where dermal fillers are injected into the lips with the goal of improving the size, shape, definition or hydration.
Depending on the technique and the type of dermal fillers used, lips can be augmented in the following ways:
- added definition to the lip borders (Vermillion border) and Cupid’s bow;
- increase plumpness and volume, and improve texture;
- turning the lips out to give more of a pout.
Is lip filler painful?
Lip fillers have minimal discomfort when done properly. Improper technique can make the procedure uncomfortable, and increases the risk of bruising and swelling.
For those concerned about pain, Dr. Aaron offers a number of anaesthetic options to ensure that your procedure is comfortable.
Are lip fillers safe?
Lip injections with dermal filler are very safe. The most common side effect is mild bruising and swelling which resolve over a few days.
What are the side effects of lip fillers?
The main side effects of lip fillers are bruising and swelling, which settle over a few days. Occasionally, some people may notice a small lumps in the treated area. These can be prevented by massaging your lips morning and night for a few days after your lip injections.
How much lip filler do most people need?
Generally most people need just under 1ml for their lip augmentation.
For more dramatic results, treatments should be spaced by 1-2 months to avoid damage to the lip tissue.
Will I have lumps after lip fillers?
Lip filler lumps are uncommon, and can be prevented by massaging your lips twice a day for the first few days after your treatment. If they do occur, they are very easy to address in clinic.
How long do lip fillers last?
The results of your lip fillers can last 1-2 years for most people. It is not uncommon for lip fillers to last many years.
Do all lip fillers look fake?
Expertly injected lip fillers should never look fake. Using the wrong type of filler, too much lip filler, or the wrong technique can distort the natural lip shape, leading to an overfilled, duck appearance.
What is the difference with Russian lips?
Russian lips are performed by injecting dermal fillers vertically into the lips rather than horizontally with the goal of adding height to the lips.
While initially the results of Russian lips look impressive, this is simply due to swelling on the vermilion border at the injection site. Russian lips have high rates of severe and persistent lumps, high rates of migration beyond the vermilion border giving a duck appearance, and a higher risk of blocking blood flow to the skin which can cause scarring.
How often do I need a lip filler top up?
There is no set time frame within which to perform a top up treatment. Lip fillers can last over 1-2 years, and treating them too often can increase the risk of migration and a loss of definition.
When deciding if you want a top up treatment, you should both look at and feel your lips for signs that filler is still there. You can also compare your lips to an old photo to see if the effect is wearing off.
If you are unsure if you are due for a top up treatment, then a consultation with your injector can help determine if it is time for another lip filler procedure.
Is lip filler right for me?
If you feel your lips lack definition, are too small for your face, thin out when you smile, or are changing as you get older, then lip injections with dermal fillers may be the perfect treatment for you.
