Lips Fillers: A Guide!

Right so after being very open about my fillers a lot of you lovely ladies have had a lot of questions because you’re considering it yourself. WELL I’ve looked through all the questions on IG and emails so I can try cover everything in one go!
Where did you get them done?

A friend of mine who had lip fillers there recommended it to me and I loved the way hers looked. I went to the Birmingham Hospital Group, which can also be classed as Bromsgrove. The Birmingham Hospital Group cosmetic surgery and weight loss hospital hosts the UK’s largest facilities in Europe and is the National Head Office for The Hospital Group. I did a lot of reading up about this place before I went because even though lip fillers are non-surgical it’s still important to know the reputation of a company before having any procedures. When I called to book a consultation they were extremely patient and friendly with me. They said the actual procedure only takes about 5-10 minutes usually, so if you book the consultation as an appointment and if you decided to go ahead with the fillers you can have it there and then. I was lucky that where I went had such a lovely physician, I’ve always been a wimp with pain (yes even with my tattoos!) so she had to be really patient with me for my first lot of fillers. She made me feel so comfortable under the circumstances and didn’t let me see the needle because she knew it would freak me out a little ...even though its not big at all.

Does it hurt?

Well like I said I’m a major wimp with pain and there is a needle being stuck in your lips. Saying that the first time I went I remember thinking it really hurt but I think that’s just because I worked myself up so much about it I made myself think it was worse than it was. Even though I thought the first time was painful it didn’t put me off going back for my top up. The second time I went I was a lot more relaxed and positive about it because it was the same welcoming physician and I was more familiar with my surroundings and what the outcome would be like. Honestly it does sting but for me it was bearable and because I was calmer it was over a lot quicker than the first time. They provide numbing options, I suggest you ask about those when you go to see what can be provided/recommended for you personally.
How many times do you need to get them done?

I was told that Juvederm lasts 9-12 months but its different for everyone and how much you have. When you first get them done they will usually swell up so you get used to seeing them really swelled for a couple of days, therefore when they go down to how they should be it doesn’t feel like you’ve had your lips done. I know a few people that have gone back a week or two later to get more because they didn’t think there was much of a change. For me I just have one syringe (1ml) with slightly more in the top lip than the bottom lip and go back every 6 months(ish) for a top up. I’ve been tempted to go back a week after having them done but I know I’d end up getting addicted and having loads. I know of someone who has three syringes worth. Its all just personal preference. I’d suggest for your first appointment to just have what the physician recommends then if you want more you can just go back. I don’t know how prices would vary if you wanted more, some places will give you extra for free if you aren’t happy with the results but thats something you’d have to look into yourself.

Here is just some information I was given when I asked for the company's advice and details on Juvederm:

Juvederm and how it works
(the substance that is used)

Juvederm is a smooth gel which is injected under the skin by your physician, using an ultra-fine needle. The gel fills lines whilst the hyaluronic acid within attracts and retains moisture. Juvederm with Lidocaine is the latest advancement in the Juvederm range of facial fillers, developed specifically for your lip and mouth area. It is not granular, which means that it can flow easily into the skin for a natural look and feel. The smooth consistency means the physician can tailor the juvederm treatment to the shape of your individual lip shape, adding fullness while maintaining the details that make your lips unique. 

Finding the right physician.

The first step towards any Juvederm treatments is to find a skilled physician you can trust. Many physicians are trained to inject Juvederm in expert ways but obviously some have more experience than others. Make sure you ask your physician about their experience and results with other patients.

  What to expect before treatment

Your physician will have an in-depth consultation with you you understand exactly what your needs are and what you would like to enhance. They will explain all the options to you to make sure that your juvederm treatment has the best results you can achieve.

What to do after treatment

Your physician will advise you on your aftercare. You may be advised to stop wearing makeup for up to twelve hours. You may also be advised to avoid sun, sauna and steam rooms for up to two weeks. Some people experience a little temporary tenderness, swelling or bruising around the injection sites. Speak to your physician if this occurs, or if there is anything else that concerns you; they will be able to give you expert advice.

I hope this helped answer all your questions! I tried to be as detailed as I could be on everything. Any other questions you have are best to find out yourself and asking the companies for advice. I’m happy to share my personal experience with fillers but I’m no expert on it, its always best to do some of your own research and seek out help from experts on any procedure you consider.

  1. Thank you for your lovely comment on my blog! You totally didn't need them but you look beautiful either way! xx

  2. Hello!
    I just had a question about body modifications vs. listening to other people's opinions.

    I really, really dislike the tip of my nose, and I'm warming more and more to the idea of eventually (once I gain the courage-- and the money!) getting rhinoplasty surgery done.
    But, EVERYONE I know (family, especially) are dead set against it, and *desperate* for me not to do it.

    Should I listen to them all and leave my nose alone, or should I go with what *I* think is more appealing: a different nose?

    I L-O-V-E this blog! (Oh, and Pixie? I follow you on Instagram! :) xxxx)

  3. Goodmorning darling!!

  5. In my opinion you look beautiful either way with or without the lip injections, but your lips definitely have a lot more definition to them. They now really stand out and look really good. What was the healing process like? That must have been very different to say the least.

  6. hey, this i a good article but i know one organisation which is providing the service of perfect lip filler service. Candylipz provide lip fillers to make your lips look amazingly beautiful.

  8. Hi, you look nice. What kind of lip injection did you used? I need to have the same lips as yours. :)

  9. Injectable fillers are beneficial for both men and women. You may be an ideal candidate for this treatment if:

    You have lines around your nose, mouth and eyes.
    You have fine lines on your lips.
    Your lips and cheeks have lost volume.
