Toronto Lip Fillers Have Advantages Over Permanent Options
For lip enhancement or lip augmentation procedures, there are several options to choose from, including fat injections, implants, and lip fillers
Although each procedure has the same ultimate goal of plumping the lips to enhance their size and shape, fat injections and implants are permanent options, whereas lip fillers are a temporary solution. While many patients assume that a permanent enhancement is preferable, in reality temporary lip fillers have a number of advantages over the permanent options. Comprised of hyaluronic acids (HA), Toronto lip fillers are a safe, predictable, and natural treatment option.
Get beautiful and natural-looking results
Another benefit of Toronto lip fillers is that they deliver predictable results. As one of the best facial plastic surgeons in Toronto and an expert injector, Dr. Torgerson customizes the procedure for each patient. To ensure that his patients achieve their desired results, Dr. Torgerson selects the appropriate amount of filler to inject. In most cases, patients hoping for a subtle enhancement require one syringe of filler, while individuals looking for a more dramatic augmentation may require two syringes.
Conversely, alternative lip enhancement procedures such as fat transfer can be extremely unpredictable. Although a fat transfer yields permanent results, because the lips move so frequently, the fat in the lips can shift, causing lumps and bumps to develop. In addition, as much as 50% of the fat injected will not survive the transfer, which means that additional fat must be injected into the lips to achieve the patient’s desired results. It is impossible to predict how much fat will survive.
Lip fillers can add or restore volume to the lips
Safe & natural procedure
One of the greatest advantages of Toronto lip fillers is that they are an extremely safe solution for people who are unhappy with the appearance of their lips. Dr. Torgerson uses HA fillers such as Restylane and Juvéderm to enhance the size, shape, and structure of patients’ lips. Because hyaluronic acid is a substance that is found naturally in the body, it is an incredibly safe treatment option, and the chance of an allergic reaction is therefore very low. Although rare, in the event that a lump or bump develops, medication can be used to dissolve HA fillers. This means that there is very little risk involved with lip fillers.
Many patients also prefer lip fillers because they are a natural solution. Unlike lip implants, which are made of silicone and can therefore feel unnatural and uncomfortable in the lips, lip fillers are made up of hyaluronic acids, which are natural to the body. As a result, once injected into the lips, they feel and look very soft, which delivers extremely subtle results. Because the body gradually breaks down the fillers over time, within 6 to 9 months the lips will return to their natural state. Then additional lip filler can be injected to maintain the results.
