Lip fillers provide a quick and easy way to add extra volume and shape to lips

Fillers in Dubai | 3 June 2019

Full lips have always been associated with youth and beauty. Because of this, lip enhancement is one of the most frequently requested procedures in a cosmetic practice. 

The objective in treating the upper lip is to artistically create a form that harmonizes with the patient’s unique facial features and takes into account the age and ethnic background of the patient. The goal in treating the lower lip is to create bulk and greater prominence and artistic projection of the vermilion. The physician must establish appropriate guidelines and patient expectations for augmentation relative to normal lip proportions in order to avoid a cartoon-like appearance.

Any physician performing lip augmentation should recognize that temporary fillers can cause permanent stimulatory effects in tissues.After 2 or 3 sessions of lip augmentation, full correction may be obtained and persist indefinitely. Patients may return for additional filler merely because a certain amount of time has elapsed since their last injection, but the physician must evaluate the proportions of the lips to truly determine if additional filler is warranted. It is helpful to have a hand mirror for the patient to observe her lip proportions as the doctor seeks to determine whether more filler is needed. It is also beneficial to show the patient her lips from the lateral view; digital photography is extremely useful in this regard.
