Am I a good candidate for a lip augmentation?
If you are in good general health, have a positive attitude and realistic expectations, you are most likely a good candidate for this procedure at our clinic.
The following are some common reasons why you may consider a lip enhancement:
Who should not have a lip augmentation?
If you are pregnant or breastfeeding, or have history of severe allergies, you should not have this treatment. People with certain connective tissue disorders may also be at a higher risk of side effects.
Are there any side effects from using lip fillers?
Side effects are rare but can include redness, swelling, pain, itching, bruising and discolouration at the injection sites. These effects typically resolve spontaneously or within 1 to 2 days after treatment.
What can I expect on the day of my treatment?
Injections with Lip Fillers can be performed with little to no downtime and minimal preparation. Dr. Harceaga will prepare the area to be treated and take precautions to minimise your pain. The procedure should take less than 20 minutes, and you will be given instructions to follow once you leave the clinic.
Do injections in and around the lips hurt?
Injections in the lips can be uncomfortable; however, at our clinic we use a topical anaesthetic cream that numbs the lips so that the needle prick cannot be felt. For almost all of our patients, this is sufficient and no other treatment is needed to counter pain. If necessary for patients who are particularly sensitive, we can inject a local anaesthetic (or freezing) to completely numb the lips and surrounding areas and temporarily remove all feeling.
Will my lips be swollen after the treatment?
Following your lip augmentation procedure, you will have some swelling; however, swelling is normally minimal and barely visible. It is recognisable only in the fact that the day after your procedure when the swelling subsides, you may notice that your lips look marginally smaller than they appeared immediately after the injections. Dr. Harceaga’s patients rarely experience any bruising or excessive swelling that temporarily makes it obvious they had a lip enhancement done.
How long does the enhancement last?
The enhancement from Hyaluronic Acid Lip Fillers generally lasts for about 6 to 9 months. The exact time varies between patients and the type and amount of filler that is used. Since Hyaluronic Acid is completely absorbed and broken down by the body over a period of months, a re-treatment session is recommended every 6 months to maintain results.

I had neck/jaw Lipo on Friday evening 16/10/15 after wanting it done since I was 16 as I have never had a jaw line or definition in my neck as always had a slope.The team have been absolutely fantastic. First of all arranging it on a Friday evening so I could have longer to recover over the weekend so I can go back to work on Monday. The communication from everyone has been fantastic. The procedure was great (If you can say great about a tube sucking out fat from your neck!). But seriously made me feel such at ease, comfortable and felt in such safe hands. The surgeon was so meticulous and careful which was great as the neck and jaw are visible to all. I was given a number of one of the surgeons whom I could contact if I had any queries or problems and also Michelle's contact details. This I must say has been extremely helpful. Seriously would not get that kind of patient care and attention anywhere I know and from anywhere I know of people have gone to. Great price, great customer care and attention and great professional and qualified team. Thank you to you all, it really means so much to me, its a massive life changer for me and I have all of you to thank for that! :)
