Lip Augmentation in Sydney

About the treatment

Shape’s trademark ‘Sydney Lip’ is beautifully tailored, sensual, and far from the overblown ‘trout pout’.

The lips are integral to your facial aesthetic. When they begin to lose definition and volume or show signs of ageing, it can affect your entire appearance. Lip enhancement at Shape Clinic in Sydney aims to restore both size and shape to your lips, creating a youthful and harmonious balance between your facial features. Always striving for naturally convincing results, Dr Steven Liew and his expert team of cosmetic injectors work to personalise each treatment to suit each patient’s aesthetic goals and cosmetic needs.


Lip enhancement or lip fillers are non-surgical, non-invasive procedures designed to restore the lips’ volume, shape, and definition. As we age, reduced collagen levels and changes to the dermal structure often lead to thinning lips and wrinkles around the mouth. Fillers work to correct these side effects and recreate a more youthful, naturally enhanced lips contour. 

For many women, lip enhancement is about:

  • Restoring lost volume and creating a softer, smoother outline. 
  • Creating a fuller and juicier aesthetic to accentuate the lips. 

The new generation fillers now give women a range of options to suit their individual needs and aesthetic desires.


Lip enhancement is an excellent, highly advanced way to restore the lips’ shape, structure, and volume. 

Lip fillers boast various benefits, including:

  • Plump, hydrated lips
  • Youthful shape and definition
  • Natural-looking enhancement
  • Minimally invasive and little downtime required
  • Customisable treatment with immediate results
  • Lip augmentation before and after results
  • Lip enhancement before and after results

What to expect from Lip Fillers

The consultation is a crucial part of the treatment process; this is where your physician will analyse your facial proportions, determine the most suitable approach, and walk you through the steps of the procedure. The consultation also gives you the chance to ask any questions or concerns about treatment. 

The Procedure Overview:

  • Procedure time: 15-30 mins
  • Downtime required: Overnight
  • Results duration: Up to 12 months*
  • Pair this treatment with: Dermal Fillers to the jowls and chin, Anti Wrinkle Injections to the lip lines

*Individual results may vary.

Pairing this treatment

Since the ageing process affects the entire face, many patients benefit from combining lip fillers with other injectables to reclaim a more youthful contour of the lower face. While the lips tend to thin with age, fine lines and wrinkles can also develop around the corners of the mouth, creating a worn, aged and tired look. 

Over time, changes to the dermal structure also cause the skin to sag and fat deposits to shift, often leading to jowls and a sunken chin and jawline. 

  • Injectable fillers can correct these side effects and revitalise the shape and structure of the lower face. 
  • While lip fillers work to restore volume and definition to the lips, other injectables can help smooth out fine lines and create a more defined jawline. 
  • The result is a more youthful, refreshed contour and a better facial structure that can transform your entire appearance.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

Are there any side effects?

Yes, there are some side effects that can occur from lip fillers. The specific side effects you experience may vary depending on your individual circumstances. Common side effects include bruising, swelling and redness. 

Does lip augmentation hurt?  

The pain level of lip augmentation varies from person to person. Some people feel only a slight pinch, while others may experience more discomfort. The amount of filler injected can also affect the pain level. To minimise pain, a topical numbing cream is typically applied to the lips before the procedure. 

Are lip fillers permanent?

Lip augmentation is not permanent. The results of lip augmentation can last for up to 12 months, but the filler will eventually be absorbed by the body. You may need to have the procedure repeated to maintain the results.

What should I expect during a consultation?

During a consultation for lip fillers, your doctor or aesthetician will discuss your goals for treatment. They will also explain the risks and side effects of the procedure and answer any questions you have.
