As we age, lip volume decreases due to a number of reasons such as smoking, bone mass loss, ageing and loss of fat and collagen.
Lip Enhancement Treatment
At Dr Saras & Co, we understand how important facial balance, proportion and harmony is, which is why we use dermal fillers to treat lip volume loss. Dermal fillers are injected into and around the lips to improve size and shape. Volume can be restored by injecting added volume straight into the lips, over the edge or under the vertical lines.
A dermal filler is a naturally derived substance (hyaluronic acid) that is injected into the skin with the purpose of plumping the area to the point where the fold, depression or wrinkle is eliminated. It helps hydrate the skin by retaining water and combining elastin with collagen to provide volume and structure.
Using dermal fillers to repair lip volume, corrects the vertical lines and reinvents the border of the lip; this creates a much more youthful definition and improves vitality to the treated area.

What to Expect During Lip Enhancement
During the procedure, fillers using a fine needle are inserted into the lip. To ease discomfort, a local anaesthetic can be used to help numb the area. Numbing creams are also available, however, often just icing the area prior to the procedure is enough.
Dermal fillers are inserted into the edge of the lips to redefine them. To enhance lip size, the fillers are injected into the body of the lips. The volume of the lips can vary from a subtle enhancement through to bigger lips depending on the volume and product used.
At Dr Saras & Co, we are experts in listening our patients needs and respecting the results you want to achieve. During your consultation, we will go over the lip enhancement treatment process. Consultations are available in our clinics located in Annandale, Double Bay and Miranda.
