Dermal Fillers

7th May 2015

Ever thought about enhancing your lips with dermal fillers?

Dermal fillers contour and shape our lips. Recently I have had RESTYLANE Dermal fillers injected into my lips to make them fuller. I liked the shape of my lips however they were very flat and kind of tucked under. Dr Khan advised me on how to enhance them to a reasonable size to. Pre op pictures were taken before so he knew exactly where to inject and what areas were more necessary for the filler. I opted for just the upper lip as my lower lip was big enough and didn’t want to create a ‘trout pout’.

Topical anaesthetic cream was applied to my lip and dental block injection. I couldn’t feel a thing which from my perspective was great as well as Dr Khan as he could work calmly without me flinching or moving. We used half a syringe of Restylane in my top lip, for now this was enough. The outcome was great, a small amount of swelling was noticeable however nothing drastic! After 2 days I started to get used to the size of my lips as it can affect your speech or eating as it’s a different feeling to what you are used to. Dr Khan took pictures 2 weeks later and this is when we decided a top up would be necessary, there was definitely a difference however I did want more. We used the rest of the Syringe of Restylane and again were pain free! I am very happy with my lips now as they are symmetrical at a perfect size to suit my face. I would definitely go ahead with Dermal Fillers again once the treatment has worn off depending on each person the Filler can last between 9-12 months.
