Lip fillers can give you the fullness and volume you desire for your lips. We aim to give you beautifully proportioned, natural lips that perfectly align with your other facial features.
Lips fillers sometimes get a bad name. This is almost always because someone, somewhere has over done it. Dr Bhavjit strives to adhere to the ‘less is more’ approach to lip augmentation. Subtlety is key is a good mantra to follow. Dr Bhavjit has extensive knowledge and experience with the use of lip fillers, a technique also known as lip augmentation. By using only the finest range of tried and tested, recognised brand hyaluronic acid (H.A.) dermal fillers, increased volume is not the only expected result. Improvements in tone, texture, and contour can also be achieved. Balanced, symmetrical lips, exactly as you envisage them is the intended result.
What are lip fillers?
Lip fillers is a general term that encapsulates any substance that is used to give volume to the lips. There are various substances that could be used for this purpose, but the safest and most effective are fillers that contain H.A. as the active ingredient. H.A. occurs naturally in the body and is the main ingredient of the best lip fillers. In the body, H.A. is found in many tissues, and acts as a lubricant, a hydrator, and an anti-inflammatory agent, amongst many other beneficial uses. Lip fillers are sometimes in the news where things have gone wrong for the patient. One of the possible reasons for this is the fact that unscrupulous injectors have used an unlicensed, unregulated or non-approved type of filler. For this reason it is always advisable to research what fillers are being used and question cheap offers.
Benefits of Hyaluronic acid lip fillers
- Low risk of allergic reaction, due to HA being a bio-compatible substance.
- Controllable results. Amounts of filler can be slowly increased, over multiple injections, to achieve the desired result.
- Reversible. If you have a change of heart the filler can be dissolved.
- Longer lasting. Patients report that if they wish to keep the same look, they need only visit every 6 months on average.
- Correction of asymmetry of the lips, be it an imbalance between top and bottom or right and left.
- Lips you love!

Frequently Asked Questions
This is a commonly asked question. Numbing cream is applied to avoid this being a painful experience. That being said, the sensation should be described as ‘discomfort’ rather than ‘pain’. Some fillers contain lidocaine to lessen this discomfort.
The side effects of a lip filler treatment are usually minimal as hyaluronic acid is known to be very well tolerated. Provided the practitioner is fully experienced and trained, side effects, if any, tend to be limited to slight bruising and swelling. Most side effects you may hear about surrounding lip fillers are to do with bad technique and poorly trained injectors.
The answer to this depends on various factors including the exact brand and type of filler used. The length of time a filler may last will vary from patient to patient. A realistic amount of time is 6 months for H.A. fillers but this may be slightly less or a fair bit more.
Surveys have shown that lip fillers elicit survey satisfaction results in the high nineties. This can be attributed to the fact that the fillers give obvious results for one. Results that are tailored to the exact patient desires give another reason for the high satisfaction scores.
