Lip fillers are a non-surgical procedure available in Bath that can add volume to the lips, creating a fuller look that is natural and youthful.
The fillers are a form of dermal filler, with gel injected to counteract the impact of depleted collagen and elastin.
The results can be profound and last for close to two years.
Lip fillers are available in Bath through Elena Prousskaia, a world-renowned cosmetic surgeon who brings that level of expertise to the under-regulated world of minimally invasive procedures.
What are lip fillers?
Lip fillers are an injection that serve to create volume and the enhanced appearance as desired by the client.
The nature of the gels has changed over time and some still use relatively outdated injectables.
However, the leading choice is to use injectables that include hyaluronic acid, this a substance that occurs naturally. The gel can be injected in different thicknesses and quantities, this to fine-tune the precise results.
The fillers are absorbed into the skin, this can be into deep layers depending on the practitioner’s knowledge of facial anatomy. The greater the knowledge, the more profound the results and the longer they will last.
The dermal fillers can also be used on many other areas of the face – indeed some chose to have a series of injections, the cheekbones, jawline and forehead for instance – to create what can be known as a non-surgical facelift.
The Impact of Lip Fillers
Lip fillers enhance appearance in a way that can be carefully controlled and predicted.
An experienced practitioner can confidently state what can be achieved and work with the client to create results that give them the fuller lips they desire.
Key to the impact is the skill of the surgeon or practitioner. It is worth noting that lip fillers can be injected by a wide range of people – this including everything from leading surgeons, to cosmetic doctors down to the local hairdressing salon.
Only when an expert is used can the impact be predicted – otherwise it is likely that too little filler will be used, leading to results barely worth the money, or too much leading to results that look anything but natural.
To achieve desired results the placement of the injections has to be accurate, so too the density and quantity of the gel.
The old adage is true that you get what you pay for.
Key information about lip fillers
The following are some key points relating to dermal fillers.
They are a safe treatment, the hyaluronic gel is a substance that occurs naturally in the body. However, as mentioned previously, that is not to say there is not value to choosing an experienced practitioner
You should always have a consultation first. This is your chance to discuss the results you would like to achieve and to ensure that the practitioner inspires confidence
The results typically last for between nine and 18 months. To maintain results beyond this you will need follow-up injections of fillers
There is no recovery time. Side effects are limited to mild swelling and some mild pain, both of these will typically pass inside 48 hours. Post injections, you can go about your daily routine
The results can have more than physical benefits – if someone’s lips are a cause for concern then addressing this can boost confidence and self-esteem and so benefits extend into all areas of life.
At worst, the injections cause mild pain – a local anaesthetic will be used to numb the area.
The cost will vary depending on the quantity of filler required – in our case, Elena would provide a full quote at consultation for you to take away and consider

Elena was recommended to me and as soon as I met her I felt entirely comfortable. Her explanations made sense in terms of expectations. Having made the big decision I did feel nervous but had absolute trust and confidence in Elena. I knew I was in the best hands. Elena's team is so supportive, my questions were answered with patience and understanding. My care at the McIndoe Centre was excellent. I am five weeks post op for abdominoplasty and liposuction and last week. Quite amazing to see the before and after pictures! I am so pleased that I was fortunate enough to meet Elena and have no hesitation in recommending her.
SM – Abdominoplasty & Liposuction
I have been both physically and mentally uncomfortable in my body since I was 12. I was born with ‘breast mutation’ and I first had surgery to correct this through the NHS at 16 years old. The surgery I have had with Elena, 17 years later, has removed the NHS implants, one of which had ruptured, and completely altered the shape of my chest. By doing this she has made me look and feel like a woman for the first time in my life. She is at all times quietly kind and fiercely adept. A true artist. She has surrounded herself with the most wonderful team and I cannot thank them all enough for the new lease of life that I have been given.

I have been self conscious for the whole of my adult life and I cannot express how much this surgery has changed things for me. Both mentally and physically. I highly recommend Elena. She supported me throughout my journey from start to finish. Elena is very particular which for me is really important. Elena really took care of me from initial consultation right through to surgery and aftercare.My scaring is minimal and I am absolutely over the moon with my results. Thank you Elena!
JB – Breast Reduction
Elena is an OUTSTANDING surgeon. I had PIP implants and was looking to have them changed. I knew Elena was the surgeon to help, she put me at ease and explained my options. The lovely ladies in her office were helpful, I wanted to get sorted asap, when an alternative date was available contacted me straight away. I received outstanding care from start to finish from Elena, her team and the hospital. The aftercare is amazing, nothing is too much trouble, can call any time. I was so relaxed, I knew I was in great hands. The final results are fantastic. Elena has worked magic and I couldn’t be happier. I’m so glad I found her. I can’t thank her and her team enough.
LMS – implant Removal & Replacement
Had surgery with Elena in September, I was extremely anxious about the whole thing, but Elena and her whole team, from admin to the hospital staff were amazing with me and reassured me throughout my journey. I can not recommend Elena enough, and she has changed my life for the better! Already saving for my next operation with her!
