Why Might Someone Consider Lip Fillers?

We often see patients coming to us interested in increasing the total volume of their lips. This more pronounced, full look is something that can’t always be achieved naturally, which is why so many people look to lip fillers. If you are interested in achieving results like these, we can help you determine if this treatment is a good fit during your consultation with our medical team. The team are only interested in natural results.

Are Lip Fillers Right for Me?


  • Do you want to increase your lip projection?
  • Do you have realistic expectations regarding your results?
  • Have you done enough research about the treatment?
  • Are you concerned about lost lip volume through aging?
  • Do you have any preexisting conditions?
  • Do you react poorly to fillers or other injectable treatments?

It is important to begin your aesthetic journey knowing exactly what results you can expect from this treatment. Lip fillers are temporary and will require regular maintenance procedures, there is also a limit to what kind of improvements they can achieve, so make sure you have done plenty of research, reviewed before and after images, and come into the process with realistic expectations.

If you have any preexisting conditions or react poorly to injections or dermal fillers, then this procedure might not be a good choice for your goals. We would be happy to discuss alternative options if you fall into this category, but the best possible way to know if it is something you should consider is to schedule a consultation with our office so we can review all the variables.

Understanding the Lip Augmentation Process

At our practice, our first and foremost goal is to make sure you feel comfortable and confident about the decision to have a treatment performed. We won’t encourage you to have anything done that you aren’t ready for or undergo any procedure that we don’t think will ultimately get you closer to your ideal results.

A Consultation with The Centre for Medical Aesthetics


  • Our goal is to help you achieve your goals, not sell you lip fillers or other treatments.
  • You should make the most out of your consultation process, it is a huge resource. 
  • Even if you don’t sign up for treatment, we are your partner through the aesthetic journey.

It is important to us that you know what our mission is. TCMA does not prioritise getting you to sign up for a treatment. We want to inform you about your options and help you come to a decision you feel entirely comfortable with. If we don’t think lip fillers will work for your goals, then we will not recommend them. 

We will help you find an alternative option if they aren’t a good fit, and it is possible that the alternative will not include a paid treatment from our office. Even if you don’t sign up for a treatment, we still want you to feel like we are someone you can trust as you move through your aesthetic journey.

We also recommend keeping a list of questions and concerns handy and bringing them to your consultation. This appointment will be your chance to get thorough and complete answers about the different parts of a liquid rhinoplasty. We will spend as much time as necessary to thoroughly discuss your concerns so that you are as informed as possible as you make your decision to move forward.

How to Prepare for Your Lip Augmentation

There is no extensive amount of preparation you need to make leading up to your treatment. Do your best to avoid excess alcohol and smoking to ensure you have the smoothest recovery possible, but other than that, you can resume your usual routine. If there are any special instructions you need to follow, we will make sure to cover those before your treatment day.

The Lip Filler Process


  • Treatments will take between 30 and 45 minutes. 
  • An injection is made after an anesthetic is applied.
  • We will make your process as seamless as possible. 

Lip fillers are a fairly simple procedure — local anesthesia will be applied to help reduce any potential pain or discomfort. After that, a small needle will be inserted into the lips where the volumizer will be applied. The entire process takes about 30 to 45 minutes depending on how complex your treatment plan is.

Lip Filler Results

Lip fillers can provide noticeable changes in the contours of your lip profile. You will be able to notice results immediately after the procedure, but the final results will start to show a few days after the treatment as the injection settles and any residual swelling subsides.

Your treatment may last for about 6 to 18 months. To maintain the increased profile, you will likely need to have maintenance treatments performed. It is possible for this timeline to change, depending on your body’s unique reaction to the treatment. 

You should avoid touching or pursing your lips as much as possible during the first two or three days after the procedure, otherwise, you could cause the filler substance to shift positions.

Let’s Talk: Frequently Asked Questions

What Risks Are Associated with Lip Fillers?

There are very few risks associated with lip fillers. But, as is the case with any treatment, there is always some potential to experience some side effects. It is normal to feel bruising, irritation, redness, or soreness after the treatment. These symptoms are usually mild and subside within a day or two. 

Other side effects, like infection and tissue death, are very rare and are not likely to occur when dealing with a trained and experienced medical team like TCMA. 

Are There Any Post-Treatment Instructions to Follow?

Although the recovery is very light, there are a few things you should avoid in order to preserve your treatment results:

  • Avoid any excessive touching or pursing of the lips, as well as any excessive kissing. The more you move your lip tissue around, the more likely it is that the filler will become displaced. 
  • If you are experiencing a lot of swelling, you can use an ice pack for up to 10 minutes at a time. 
  • Avoid wearing lipstick or other lip products for at least 24 hours. This will help prevent irritation at the injection sites.
  • Be careful when you are brushing your teeth. Many patients are overly rough on their lips during this process and find that it leads to filler movement.
  • Avoid excessive exercise for 24 hours
  • Avoid alcohol for 24 hrs
