So, you are here because you are planning to get lip fillers to fix a botched lip job, or read this just for fun. Well, it can be said without a shadow of a doubt that bad lip fillers are anything but fun.

You may or may not be at fault for such a disaster, but knowing the underlying causes, quick fixes, and ways to avoid it would be useful. Read on to find out! You can thank us later…

A good lip filler is like a perfect dress that simply never goes out of style!


What Are Lip Fillers?

A lip filler is an injectable treatment for the ultimate lip enhancement. Dermal fillers contain Hyaluronic Acid, a substance naturally found in skin to keep it plump and youthful.

This cosmetic procedure can do many wonders, such as volumizing a thin pout, restoring lost plumpness and volume in ageing lips, or smoothing upper lip wrinkles or ‘lipstick lines’.

Many individuals also like to reshape and add definition to their lips, which instantly improves their look!

However, lip fillers have come a long way. From celebrities like Kylie Jenner to Megan McKenna to Lady Gaga or Charlotte Crosby, plumped-up pouts using Dermal fillers have gained widespread acceptance and popularity.

What Makes Lip Jobs So Insanely Popular?

In a nutshell, the ‘social validation’ and, hence, self-confidence has a lot to do with this cult favorite lip enhancement.  

Statista, the leading market and consumer data provider, shared the top cosmetic procedures in the United Kingdom in 2021 based on monthly online search traffic.

As of January 2021, lip filler treatments in the UK were the most in demand aesthetic procedure with a monthly search volume of 40.5 thousand. Hair transplant, on the other hand ranked second, with a monthly search volume of about 33 thousand.

So, why are they trending so much?

Lip Filler In Action — How Does It Work?

They say it’s simple and easy, but not quite. Lip augmentation using injectable dermal fillers is a sophisticated and delicate procedure. Though it is totally non-invasive, it still involves your face, skin, and arteries. Hence, absolute care and caution are needed to get that dreamy pout…safely.

The success of your lip enhancement lies in the following:

  1. Deeply detailed consultation with your doctor
  2. Choosing the right amount and right type of filler for your treatment
  3. The ‘inject & inspect’ technique monitors the overall buildup of the dermal fillers into the lips.
  4. Good doctors also prefer to use fine micro-cannulas to minimise bruising or swelling after the procedure.
  5. Strictly follow proper pre- and post-treatment guidelines for the patients.

Dear readers, hyaluronic acid-based lip injections are not just for adding volume to your pout or making it look more seductive.

 Your doctor must ensure that the new lips appear proportionate and natural.

Bad Lip Fillers Or A Botched Lip Job?

Unlike a lip filler procedure that instantly and subtly enhances, reshapes, and plumps up your lips, bad lip fillers do quite the opposite. 

A bad lip filler, also known as a ‘botched lip job,’ results in uneven lips that can also look lumpy, bruised, overfilled, or poorly shaped. The overall effect is simply out of proportion to the rest of your facial features, which look visually unappealing.

The difference lies in the procedures’ outcome and who and how they are carried out. An unskilled or inexperienced practitioner may be the reason behind your bad lip fillers. 

From the wrong choice of fillers to faulty injection techniques of your doctor. Or, anything can easily go wrong from your unrealistic expectations of lip fillers to a poor aesthetic understanding on the part of your injector.

Bad Lip Fillers Before And After

Below are a few examples of the aftermath of bad lip fillers that were unnecessary and could have been prevented in the first place. Lumpy lips, poorly shaped pout, and wrong injection techniques are possible reasons behind such ‘Oh No’ moments!

Bad Bruising After Lip Fillers

Bruising after lip fillers is common and can last up to 10 days. Following lip filler procedures, it’s important to differentiate between simple bruising and a vascular blockage.

Reversing A Botched Lip Filler Job

Regrettably, the increasing trend of beauty salons offering procedures near critical vascular structures has led to a higher incidence of lip filler complications. At Cosmedocs, we’ve been addressing a significant number of such lip filler reversal cases.

Don’t worry—there’s no need for alarm. We’ve successfully corrected nearly all cases of botched lip fillers that have come our way.

The good news is that you do not have to live with that nightmare for long! Experts at CosmeDocs have fixed hundreds of ‘lip filler gone wrong’ cases by dissolving them and successfully reversing the damage.  

For your information, we are a sister organization to Harley Street Institute, and all our cosmetic doctors conduct advanced training in aesthetic medicine, especially Lip Filler Courses for medical professionals only. So, if you’re a medic, you may wish to undertake our safe aesthetic courses.

Using a special enzyme called Hyaluronidase, it breaks down the hyaluronic acid-based filler in your lips…right away. Phew! Depending on the amount of filler injected into your lips, you may need more than one session to get rid of your bad lip fillers.

However, prevention is always, ALWAYS better than cure…right? CosmExperts shares a few handy pieces of advice to avoid a botched lip job.

Dodging The Bullet! — Avoiding Bad Lip Fillers

A quick Google search will show you what a botched lip filler looks like. Dive in a little and you will find out that many of the ‘lip filler gone wrong’ victims were either at fault themselves or were misled by the ‘Instagram Syndrome’.

To help you avoid the unwanted aftermath of bad lip fillers, read these tips from our experts, which will surely help you minimise your risks of ruining your pout!

  • Always Pick A Practitioner With A Good Repute

We cannot stress enough the importance of a good and skilled injector, dear readers! You ask why?

To prevent bad lip filler effects, only a trained aesthetic practitioner who is well-versed in facial anatomy and has extensive knowledge of what he does should be your choice.

What’s even more important is to have an ‘Aesthetic Eye’ and good reviews from his clients, which can help you make an informed decision. Experts at CosmeDocs 

  • Leave Those Celebrity Lips At Home

Yes please! It is impossible to look exactly like your beloved celebrity unless you were born their doppelgänger. Yikes! 

Everyone is unique and beautiful in their way. Therefore, it is crucial not to idealize others but rather to improve and enhance one’s own features and ultimately appreciate them.

So, forget Russian Doll Lips or Kylie’s oversized pout, or you may end up with a ‘Trout Pout’.

  • Do Your Due Diligence

That’s right. Do your homework before signing up for such an adventure…(a daunting one, no doubt.) Dig deep into what a lip filler journey looks like to avoid unpleasant surprises. 

Last but not least, always look for a quality aesthetics clinic that follows the highest standards and has a sterile clinical environment. 

This toiling ensures you get the safest and desired results without any regrets.

  • Get Real — Too High Goals, Too High Risks

Yes, lip fillers are amazing and can give you a juicy, pillowy pout in minutes. However, do not expect them to transform you into someone else! 

Many patients demand instantly bigger and ‘Instagrammable Lips,’ which are certainly impossible to achieve, especially if this is their first time getting a lip job.

Moreover, too many lip injections may also give you the infamous ‘sausage lips effect’, which looks anything but attractive.

Hence, a good doctor would never talk you into getting bigger lips, which would look highly disproportionate and ‘scary.’

  • Not Bigger The Better, But More Subtle, The Stunning

There is no look better than ‘your look but better.’ Soft hyaluronic acid-based lip fillers can help you get just that, provided your cosmetic doctor believes in the ‘less is more’ approach.

One key way to avoid bad lip fillers is to choose a plump and hydrated pout rather than a bee-stung look. Even if you do like just a little more volume, your practitioner can always start with small amounts of lip injection injected carefully and cautiously. 

Naturally build up your lips size in harmony with your overall facial profile. That is your ultimate lip filler guide!
