Everything you ever wanted to know about Lip Fillers… but were too afraid to ask
What are lip fillers?
Lip fillers are one of the most sought-after and popular dermal fillers nowadays. These are also known as cosmetic injections or cosmetic injectables that are used to make lips fuller and give them a defined, enhanced appearance. By enhancing and defining your lips, your whole face may appear fresher and rejuvenated.
At the Sydney Cosmetic Centre, we are a doctor only clinic based in a discreet location in Bondi Junction, the heart of the Eastern Suburbs in Sydney, Australia.
What is the most commonly used type of lip filler?
The most common and widely used lip fillers are made of natural substances found in the body which in turn increases their safety profile.
Dermal fillers injected into the lip can enhance the shape, volume, structure, and overall appearance of the lip.
How long does it take to get lip fillers?
Our principle cosmetic doctor, Dr Liane Robinson, has been performing cosmetic injectables for last 17 years. The Lip Filler procedure takes just a few minutes and is minimally invasive. The procedure is non-permanent and you may need to make appointments to freshen up your cosmetic injections at regular intervals.
Here at the Sydney Cosmetic Centre, we offer a free initial consultation where Dr Liane Robinson will assess your facial features and lip shape and fullness. She can recommend to you the appropriate Dermal Filler according to the result and look you desire. At this initial appointment, you can have your procedure and get done with it within minutes at the same consultation.
Who can get lip fillers?
Getting lip fillers to enhance your features is a personal choice. You need to be over 18 and not pregnant or breast feeding. You don't always have to go for over-the-top pouts, you can easily opt for a subtle, almost natural touch-up if you want. Most people who choose to get lip fillers have one of these objectives in mind:
- Increasing lip size or lip plumping.
- Defining the shape of your lips to make them more prominent.
- Smoothing wrinkles around your lips to give a rejuvenated look
Why choose lip fillers?
Lip fillers are not used to stop the aging process, rather, they are a cosmetic procedure using cosmetic injections done solely for the purpose of enhanced aesthetics. They help you achieve your desired look.
Furthermore, Dermal Fillers are reversible and degrade with time so they are an ideal option for people who want to experiment with their look without a long-term commitment.
Are there any side effects?
Side-effects may be include but not restricted to minor bruising and tenderness with a little swelling immediately after the procedure. But these are commonly transient effects and usually go away on their own.
How long does the lip filler last?
It largely depends on the type of lip filler used and the lifestyle of the customer but the majority of lip fillers last from 4-6 months to around 6-9 months.

If you are considering this procedure and are planning to make an appointment, make sure that you approach a medically trained professional who has plenty of experience in this regard. Make sure your cosmetic doctor knows what they are doing, and the place you are getting your cosmetic work done is reputable. Lip fillers are very technique and injector sensitive.
