The Blog How big will my lips be after filler?

Lip Filler was made famous by the Kardashians but used for decades before Kylie started the Instagram craze! So, if you’re considering having this done, how big will your lips be?

Let’s bust some myths about lip filler. Not all lips fillers are created equal and let’s face it, not everyone wants a Hollywood style pout. Here at Contour Clinics, we talk about your lip goals in a thorough consultation. Together we’ll choose an appropriate product and look that suits your face and features to create a pout as unique as you are! 

To give you some perspective, 1ml of Lip Filler is only ¼ of a teaspoon! If you’re hoping for a pout that puts Kylie Jenner to shame, you will need several visits over time to achieve a fuller look. We would select a thicker, denser product for you to achieve an accentuated pout, injecting 1ml per visit until we reach your desired goal.

If you’re after a more subtle result, we would select a finer, softer product for you to hydrate and plump your lips but keep everyone guessing whether you’re born with it or whether its Lip Filler!  

You will always have swelling immediately after your treatment which is your body’s natural response to the procedure so the true result can be seen after about two weeks when the filler has integrated into your tissue and the swelling has completely subsided. Keep in mind that lip filler is a temporary indulgence, metabolised by your body, you will need repeat treatments approx. every 6-9 months. 

Some patients ask for what is popularly referred to as a ‘duck lip’ or ‘trout pout’. It is a particularly projected look and is a personal preference. Others are hoping for a more discrete result or just wanting to correct asymmetry or accentuate their cupids bow. Whatever the result you’re looking for, we can help you achieve it at Contour Clinics. Check our our Lip Filler page or Book in for your complimentary consultation today!

The absolute best in Sydney. I would not go anywhere else to get anything done. Everyone I have encountered at this clinic has been so extremely warm and professional and put in so much time and effort to truly achieve your desired outcome. Can’t recommend this place enough, do not waste your money elsewhere.
