What are the risks of lip augmentation?
All medical and surgical procedures carry a small risk, which is significantly reduced by seeing a surgeon who is a specialist with facial anatomy.
Risks and complications will depend on whether it is a surgical or non-surgical lip augmentation procedure—the most obvious one being that surgery is permanent and cannot be reversed.
Minor issues from non-permanent fillers may include the filler migrating from the treatment area, a lumpy appearance under the skin and that it is short-lasting.
Dr De Silva always discusses all the pros and cons of each treatment with his patients, including risks and complications, so you can feel confident in the decision you make on what treatment is right for you.
Lip augmentation should be considered in relation to the proportions and harmony of the face. Dr De Silva will advise you whether other procedures may enhance the result of the lip augmentation.
