What is a Lip Filler?

Nowadays, lip filler, which is preferred by many women and is becoming more common among men as well, is a medical aesthetic method that does not require surgical intervention. This method, which usually uses hyaluronic acid-based filling material, is about preventing age-related sagging and loss of volume of the lips, while increasing their moisture, and giving the face a young, dynamic and natural look by eliminating the naturally thin lip structure. Thanks to plumper lips, it is possible to reduce the appearance of wrinkles that appear or could appear around the lips.

It is very important to eliminate genetic disorders of lip shape by lip plumping. Lip filling is performed by specialised doctors in accordance with the facial structure. Thanks to this procedure, nowadays it is very easy to achieve the desired appearance with small interventions.

How is Lip Filling Performed?

The amount of filler material used in a lip filler depends on the structure of the lip and the shape of the patient's face. For lip filling, which is one of the medical aesthetic procedures, it is very important that the patient first undergoes an examination by doctors who are experts in their field. During this examination, the possible appearances are assessed, taking into account the lip structure, facial shape and symmetrical features of the person. When lip fillers are applied, the most appropriate procedure and the amount of filling are determined depending on the patient's expectations and expert opinion.

Since it is a procedure that does not require surgery, an anaesthetic cream is applied locally. After waiting until the area is anaesthetized, the injection is made with a fine needle into the lower part of the skin in the designated areas of the lips. With numbing cream, the procedure is completely painless. Although it is a short procedure of 15-30 minutes, this time may vary depending on the extent of the filling. For example, there may be a slight difference in time between 1 and 2 cc lip fillers.

I had surgery 2 weeks ago by Dr Yucel Sarialtin. I have been to almost every doctor in Istanbul, but this doctor is so spontaneous and gives so much attention to his patient, I immediately felt good. I've had a Tummytuck 360 Lipo and BBL! What a great result I couldn't have imagined it better! Dear people please find the right doctor!!! Because I also had the same operation in 2019, but this doctor mutilated me, and Yucel Sarialtin had to correct this again, which of course makes the operation more difficult. I recommend this doctor 100%! & of course his team also lots of kisses to Buse Bayram Aysegul who helped me through this period

Who Can Get Lip Fillers?

Lip filler is a procedure that can be used on both men and women, regardless of gender. Lip filler for men is the same as that for women. People who have genetically thin lips and whose lips lose volume and moisture as they age can take advantage of this treatment. At the same time, anyone who wants can have this procedure under the supervision of a specialist, so it is suitable for all women and men who are not satisfied with their lip structure, appearance and volume. However, there are some points that must be taken into account when using it.

Treatment with lip fillers can be dangerous in the following cases:

  • Pregnant and breastfeeding women are advised against lip fillers.
  • It is dangerous for haemophilia patients, as bleeding may occur during application.
  • Lip plumping is not performed on individuals with ongoing autoimmune diseases and active herpes.

Since it is not a surgical procedure, anyone who does not have any health problems can undergo lip fillers, but the procedure is not recommended for people under the age of 18, as they have not yet completed their development. Therefore, men and women who want to get lip fillers must be at least 18 years old.

What are the Lip Filler Techniques?

In lip plumping, which is performed with different techniques, there is a visible change and fullness after the procedure. In general, there are three different techniques of lip filling. These are the needle-free technique, the Russian technique and the French technique. In all three filling techniques, the basic material is hyaluronic acid, and a local anaesthetic cream is used before the procedure, so all three procedures are painless. They are completed in a short time. The differences between these three procedures come from the way they are applied.

Needle-Free Technique of Lip Filler:

Lip plumping is performed with the Hyaluron Pen. This pen-like instrument is placed on the lip and the procedure begins. Thanks to the high pressure exerted by the Hyaluron Pen, the filler is evenly distributed. No pain is felt during needle-free lip filling. The durability of needle-free lip filler is about 3-6 months, so it can be said that it is less durable than other fillers. It is important that it is applied by an experienced specialist in a clean environment.

Russian Technique of Lip Filler:

The filler is injected with a fine needle vertically from the specified points on the lip slowly and according to the shape of the lip in many areas. The filler is applied from the top to the bottom over the lip muscle, and the goal is to distribute the filler on the lower lip and the upper lip in an arc shape and not to enter the mustache area. This procedure is not aimed at emphasizing the lip contour. Height and volume in the middle part of the lower and upper lip are important. With this technique, which creates a heart-shaped, upturned appearance, the application time may be slightly longer than with other procedures because the filling is performed from many points. As with any technique, it must be performed by an experienced professional in a sterile environment.

French Technique of Lip Filler:

Unlike the Russian lip filler technique, only the middle part of the upper lip is filled to add volume and improve the definition of the frame, taking into account the ratio between the upper and lower lip. Unlike other applications, the procedure is generally performed by injecting filler material into specific areas using a cannula, without repeatedly inserting a needle into different areas. This procedure, which is performed on the muscle, avoids excessive swelling and irritation of the lips. It is very important that this treatment, which is applied to create a frame and volume in the lip area, like other methods, is performed in a clean environment by specialized doctors.

What are the Advantages of Lip Filling?

The most important advantage of lip plumping is that the desired appearance can be achieved as quickly as possible, painlessly and without compromising the quality of life. Other obvious advantages of a properly performed lip filler are as follows:

  • A natural and vibrant appearance is achieved by restoring the moisture and volume lost to the lips with the aging process, and by eliminating age wrinkles.
  • Shaping appropriate to the face is achieved by ensuring balance of the lower lip and upper lip. Asymmetries in the lip structure are eliminated.
  • When high quality fillers approved by the Ministry of Health are used, the harmful effects of lip fillers are very low.
  • Since it is a painless application, it can be repeated without any problems.
  • Thanks to the application of fillers containing hyaluronic acid, the dissolution of lip fillers can be done at any time without waiting for the filler to be absorbed by the body over time.
  • It is a convenient application, where the result can be seen immediately and effortlessly, apart from the factors that need to be considered before and after the procedure.

What is Important Before Lip Filling?

There are a few factors to consider before lip filler:

  • First of all, it is very important to find out about the practitioner. It is necessary to properly analyze the patient's facial structure and set the appropriate amount of filler. If the treatment is not performed by doctors who are experts in this field, it can lead to poor results, such as lumps (permanent) after lip filling and an undesirable appearance that is far from the natural appearance of the lips due to the excess of injected filler.
  • Possible complications can be prevented by informing the doctor before the application about known diseases, allergies and regular medication intake of the patient.
  • To avoid bruising and bleeding, aspirin and similar blood-thinning medications should be discontinued for a period of time prior to the application of the filling.
  • Consumption of foods and beverages that prevent blood clotting should be discontinued. Consumption of alcohol and cigarettes should be discontinued.
  • If herpes occurs during the planned period of lip filler injection, the procedure should be postponed.
  • In case of dental problems requiring treatment, the procedures should not be performed at the same time and the fillings should not be inserted to avoid infections.
  • It is important that the filling material used is of high quality and approved by the Ministry of Health.

What Should be Taken Into Consideration After Lip Filling?

After lip filler, the question "Does the filler hurt?" often arises. Although the healing time of the filler varies depending on the lip structure, age, gender, filler, tissue structure, etc., the person can continue their daily life where they left off after the procedure. There are only a few factors to consider:

  • It is normal to experience a little edema and bruising as side effects after lip filler. Using an anti-edema cream prescribed by your doctor after lip plumping will speed up the healing process. The edema recedes within 2-3 days.
  • Heavy physical movements that increase blood flow and cause bruising and swelling should be avoided.
  • The patient should avoid baths, pools, spas, thermal waters and similar places that may pose a risk of infection in the first days after the application.
  • Facial care should be paused to avoid irritation.
  • Blood thinners, food and drinks should be discontinued during this phase.
  • Contact with very hot and cold foods should be avoided.
  • After filling the lips, situations such as kissing, applying lipstick and excessive facial expressions should be avoided for a while.
  • In case of prolonged redness, swelling and bruising, the nearest medical facility should be visited immediately.

Things to Know About Lip Fillers

Since the lip is one of the most visible parts of the face, many questions arise before its application. Let us take a look at the most frequently asked questions:

  • "Does lip filler hurt?" "How long does lip filler last?" are frequently asked questions. Thanks to the local anesthetic cream applied before the procedure, the procedure is painless. After a waiting period of 10-15 minutes, during which the lips are anesthetized, the procedure is performed. The procedure is usually completed within 15-30 minutes.
  • Depending on the lip structure and volume, the patient's wishes and the doctor's decision, 0.5, 1 or 2 cc of lip filler is applied. Although the amount of filler used varies, the filler is generally injected in 2 sessions rather than all at once. Thus, the duration of a session may be different for a 1 ml amount and a 2 ml amount of lip filler.
  • The preferred filler material for application is hyaluronic acid, which is present in our body but decreases with time.
  • Besides fillers based on hyaluronic acid, there are also permanent lip fillers (implants). Because an implant involves placing a foreign object in the face, it is generally not preferred.
  • "How permanent is lip filler?" is a common question. When using hyaluronic acid based fillers, the durability of lip filler is generally 8-12 months.
  • The procedure can be repeated as the filler is absorbed by the body. Unlike permanent lip filler, lip filler is dissolved with the enzyme hyaluronidase if desired.
  • Surgical intervention is required to remove permanent lip filler.

Lip Filling Prices

There are many factors that determine lip filler pricing information in 2023. Lip filler prices vary depending on the filler material, brand, amount, and the doctor performing the procedure. For example, prices can vary for hyaluronic acid-based fillers and permanent lip fillers. Quantity is also important with hyaluronic acid fillers. For example, prices for 1 ml and 2 ml lip fillers differ. The clearest price information is to be understood after a medical examination.

Lip fillers have a low risk of side effects and adverse situations, and it is a very preferred method because a visible effect on the face occurs immediately after application. For example, 1 ml of lip filler is immediately noticeable before and after. Those who get their lips filled immediately get the desired look and their self-confidence increases.
