Questions you should ask your doctor before getting lip fillers

By July 29, 2019 No Comments

There’s no doubt about it, plump lips look amazing but no matter how hard you try, lip gloss and plumpers only offer a temporary solution. If you want permanently fuller-looking lips, the only real solution is to get lip fillers. However, this is a decision that shouldn’t be taken lightly as it’s a medical procedure with its own advantages and disadvantages

1. How does the procedure work?

There’s more to getting lip fillers than just injecting chemicals randomly into your mouth; it’s a complex procedure that requires some skill and expertise. There are so many different fillers available on the market, but most use a hyaluronic acid-based filler like Juvederm which they strategically inject into certain parts of your mouth.

2. What results can I expect?

This depends entirely on the individual and what results they want from the procedure. You doctor will try and correct any insecurities you have about your lips, from the shape of them to the fine lines and wrinkles around them.

3. What will you do if the procedure goes wrong?

This might be considered a scary question but it can actually reveal a lot to you about if fillers are right for you; it can even tell you more about the skill of your doctor. As with every medical procedure, there is some risk and it can be useful to know how your doctor will cope with an emergency.

4. Can I get lip fillers with my medical condition?

It’s important to make your medical practitioner aware of any medical conditions you have, no matter how insignificant they may seem. You’re unlikely to be viable for lip fillers if you’re pregnant or have an autoimmune disease such as lupus.

5. Will the procedure hurt?

Before getting lip fillers, you need to be certain that you can tolerate the pain, especially since you’ll need to get them every few months; while the injections aren’t excruciating, some consider them to be uncomfortable and others think they’re painless.
