Your lips not only frame words, describe smiles, and carry kisses, having full, plump lips is often considered a sign of good health, beauty and youth. If you are unhappy with your lips, but do not want to undergo surgery, do not have much time to spare, and wish to see results almost immediately, there is a quick, painless and seamless way to enhance them.
Lip Augmentation with injections is one of the most popular non-surgical treatments. Whether you were born with thin lips or your lips have thinned due to the natural ageing process, a lip augmentation performed by Dr. Harceaga will add fullness, balance and body to your lips, and give you that softer, desirable look you desire.
Studies show that wider, fuller lips and well-defined borders are widely considered to be attractive. At the London Lipo Institute, we therefore offer a non-surgical lip enhancement. In this treatment, ultra-fine needles are used to inject biodegradable Hyaluronic Acid Fillers into the lips for natural, long lasting and beautiful results. Dr. Harceaga is highly experienced and skilled in performing this procedure to artistically create volume, shape, symmetry and proportion in the lips where none existed before.
Youthful skin is naturally rich in Hyaluronic Acid, a substance that binds water, thereby giving it volume, hydrating the skin, and promoting the softness and fullness of the face. As we age, the Hyaluronic Acid has a weaker effect, leading to a loss of volume and facial wrinkles. Used widely in general medicine, over 30 million people have been treated with Hyaluronic Acid worldwide. When injected, the Hyaluronic Acid is eventually absorbed and broken down by the body. Results therefore last from 3 months in very mobile areas, such as the lips, up to a year in regions, such as the nose or cheeks.
Many options are available in Lip Fillers, with clinical differences being predominantly governed by how long the effects last and how the filler feels. There are some Hyaluronic Acid Fillers that help to smooth and improve hydration of the lips, while others have more volumizing properties that can contour the lips, correct asymmetry, and plump up tired and deflated lips subtly. At the London Lipo Institute, we use only the latest brands of Hyaluronic Acid Fillers to give softer, more natural results and cause less discomfort and bruising to our patients. During your consultation, Dr. Harceaga will recommend which of the brands Juvederm®, Restylane® or Teosyal® will be most suited to your specific needs. Such Lip Fillers may differ slightly in terms of consistency (thickness), durability and cost, but all contain non-animal derived Hyaluronic Acid, and are MHRA approved, safe and effective. Once injected, these substances will lift, add volume, and help diminish fine lines for long-lasting results. Benefits of Hyaluronic Acid-based Fillers:
If any of the following effects concern you, you may be an ideal candidate for a Lip Augmentation at the London Lipo Institute:
Every year, thousands of people undergo a successful lip enhancement and are pleased with the results. However, if your lips are too large and overwhelm your face, you may not be a suitable candidate for Lip Fillers and might instead consider a Lip Reduction surgery.
As part of the natural ageing process, the composition of our lips and surrounding tissues alter. From the peak of fullness in your 20’s, your lips begin to change:
At this point, even those who were born with perfectly beautiful lips may want to consider a lip enhancement.
Lip Fillers are a safe and natural way to enhance the volume, contour, definition and overall shape of your lips for a fresh, natural, new look. Besides creating the lips you have always wanted, treatment can improve the signs of aging by addressing your lips’ texture and smoothness, and filling the lines and wrinkles that are caused by smoking and/or pursing the lips over time.
Lip Augmentation takes approximately 20 minutes. You will first be given a small icepack to apply to your lips to cool them down. This acts to numb the nerves so that the treatment is as comfortable as possible. The cold also causes blood vessels to constrict, therefore significantly decreasing swelling and bruising after the lip injections. If necessary, Dr. Harceaga can apply a topical anesthetic cream or even inject local anesthetic (freezing) in order to numb the lips and make your experience completely pain free.
During the procedure, Dr. Harceaga injects small amounts of Lip Filler directly into your lips using a unique, fine needle that causes minimal trauma to the injection sites. After the treatment, you will stay in the clinic and apply an ice pack for a further 10 minutes. This is once again to help minimize bruising and swelling. However, you should expect to have some slight swelling, which usually resolves during the first 2 days after treatment. Most people can return to work immediately and full written aftercare instructions will be given to you.

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! :)
