Join Maria on her cosmetic journey of facial restoration. In today’s episode I inject 1ml of dermal filler in and around the lips helping to restore the structure of her lower face and what a fantastic outcome she has.
To help achieve this 1ml of Hyaluronic Acid based non-permanent filler was used, typically this can last 6-9 months.
After using a topical anaesthetic cream, a number of lip filler techniques were used:
- Linear threading along the borders of the lips to achieve definition and reduce upper lip wrinkles.
- The fanning technique was employed to achieve volume in both the upper and lower lips.
- Vectoring or tenting was used to help evert the lower lip.
- Finally, structural support to the oral commissures was given to help lift up the corners of the mouth.
To ensure patient satisfaction and symmetry, the lips are assessed regularly. At the end of the treatment, the lips are cleansed with antiseptic cream and moulded into shape.
The outcome is fantastic, the lips look immediately plumper and after 2 weeks they’re fully settled with the upper lip mouth wrinkles reduced dramatically. Our beautiful models lips look hydrated, volumised and suit her face wonderfully. Needless to say, she was very pleased with the outcome.
Earlier this year I attended the Australasians Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons Anatomical Dissection in Sydney where cosmetic practitioners get hands on live demonstrations of the use of fillers on cadavers and learn about facial anatomy. The course is spread over one day and consists of practical and theoretical knowledge. It costs around $1500. Is it worth it? Well watch on to find out.
I’ll also give you a run down of the hottest cosmetic trends of this year and some interesting pointers on why men become more attractive with age and unfortunately why women don’t.
Also discussing the use of tear trough fillers and what makes a good candidate and talk what happens when fillers need to be dissolved.
When it comes to cosmetic injectables having sound knowledge of anatomy is of paramount importance.
Today I’m at the Australasian Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons Anatomical Dissection Workshop getting hands on demonstrations of where injections can be performed safely and where they should be avoided helping to keep you all in safe hands.
