Lip Enhancement consists of the enlargement and reshaping of thinner to normal lips to improve their dimensional relation with the patient’s nose, teeth, and surrounding facial structures. The appearance of the lips is determined by the spatial relation of the lip structures with the teeth.
Juvédem Ultra Smile
Mr Ferrando uses Juvéderm® Ultra Smile filler to plump up and even out lips. This creates soft, full lips with no lumping. This particular filler is especially dedicated to the lips and mouth area and is selected to enhance lip volume, redefine lip shape and to treat vertical lip lines and depressions at the corner of the mouth.
Mr Ferrando has been using Juvéderm® Fillers for many years and believes that Juvéderm® products are superior to other products on the market. He will always use the best advanced aesthetic treatments for his patients.
Use of Juvédem Ultra Smile
The filler is injected in small amounts, through a very fine needle, allowing for precision and minimising trauma to the lips.
The Lip Enhancement treatment normally takes about 30 minutes and results last six months. The end result will be fuller, younger looking lips with a natural appearance.
After the procedure, you may experience some swelling, which will go away in one to two days. While your lips are swollen you should avoid exposing them to extreme heat or cold beverages.

Injectable fillers are the most common method of lip enhancement and involve the use of hyaluronic acid-based fillers such as Restylane or Juvederm. These fillers can add volume to the lips and help to smooth out fine lines and wrinkles around the mouth.
Lip enhancement using a cannula is a popular cosmetic procedure that involves injecting dermal fillers into the lips to create a fuller, more defined look. A cannula is a thin, flexible tube that is inserted through a small incision in the skin and used to deliver the filler to the target area. Compared to traditional needle injections, using a cannula can offer several advantages, including reduced pain, swelling, and bruising.
Anaesthesia and length of the procedure
The procedure is perfomend under local anaesthetic and typically takes around 15-30 minutes.
The recovery time for lip enhancement procedures can vary depending on the specific method used and the individual patient’s healing process. However, in general, patients can expect some swelling, bruising, and tenderness in the treated area for several days to a week after the procedure.
Risks and Side Effects
All surgeries carry certain risks and even though they are rare you should be aware of them before making your decision. Mr Ferrando will talk you through any possible risks and side effects at his consultations as they will vary depending on the patient’s anatomy, age, condition and lifestyle.
During his procedures and treatments, he does everything possible to minimise the risk of complications by practicing a meticulously detailed approach and applying his world-class training background.
