Lips are one of our most important facial features and our eyes consciously (and unconsciously) focus on lips when we look at people. Hence the lips have been a focus of cosmetic adornment with forms of lipstick for centuries and a full lips are a sign of sensuality and youth and can play an important role in how we feel about ourselves.
The proportions of the lips are very important and expert plastic surgeons and cosmetic doctors have been studying this for years. Whilst there are also fads and fashions when it comes to lips, the key point is a natural, not ‘overdone’ look. Most of our patients want natural looking, full lips and do not want others to know that they have had their lips enhanced. However, we also cater for those who want a definite super pout and are keen for major impact factor. However, regardless of whether you are keen for ‘subtle’ or something more ‘obvious’, it does take time to create gorgeous lips so please remember that it can take some months to get to the final look before regular top ups. We believe in safety for all our patients and use the highest quality dermal fillers available.
In a time where almost anybody can inject using poorly regulated cheap, imported products from overseas we can reassure our patients that we provide a premium service and premium products.
Whether it is to add volume or just re-define lip structure, both male and female patients can choose the degree to which their lips are enlarged and they will always be involved during the treatment as communication is vital.
You may of course desire a more voluptuous, sexy appearance which can be achieved immediately or augmented over time with surgical procedures. We will aim to tailor any treatment according to your wishes.
Dermal fillers are used to achieve this lip enhancement. Mr Banwell and his team specialise in cheek and lip augmentation.
DERMAL FILLERS TO LIPS
There are many types of dermal fillers and products on the market today like the Juvederm range, Teoxane range and the Restylane range, which are non permanent. The most popular dermal fillers are synthetic Hyaluronic Acid formulations.
Mr Banwell’s choice of product is the Juvederm range from Allergan. Juvederm contains Hyaluronic Acid which is a substance that occurs naturally in the body. It also contains lidocaine which is a local anaesthetic designed for the comfort of your treatment. Hyaluronic Acid is biodegradable, typically lasting between 3-9 months depending on what kind and how much filler is used.
LIP FILLERS IN HARLEY STREET
Mr Banwell offers natural, beautiful lip enhancement and lip fillers in London as part of his practice and he would be happy to consult with you in Harley Street. Improving lip fullness, correcting minor asymmetries, creating a sexy pout are all potentially achievable with lip filler.
LIP LIFT TO IMPROVE FACIAL AESTHETICS
Lip lift surgery performed by Plastic Surgeons is also gaining popularity once more as lip appearance becomes increasingly important. Some patients will notice that they have a longer length between the base of their nose and their top lip. This can just be a normal occurrence but can also lengthen due to the ageing process. The ‘lip lift’ or ‘batman’ lift or ‘eagle’ lift is a relatively straight forward procedure performed under local anaesthetic which shortens the distance of the skin above the upper li and create a more youthful appearance. However, this is at the expense of a scar. Mr Banwell would be delighted to discuss lip lift surgery with you at consultation. He performs lip lift surgery in Sussex, lip lift surgery in Kent and lip lift procedures in Harley Street too.
N.B Please note that vascular compromise is a potential major risk in lip augmentation procedures with dermal filler.
