Using Lip Filler to add volume and enhance the symmetry of a Cleft Lip
Paul (not his real name), very kindly allowed us to write this blog and use his very personal photos to illustrate the difference a minimal treatment can make. Paul was born with cleft lip and although it never bothered him, he contacted us to see if there was anything we could do about the unsymmetrical appearance and if we had a treatment that could help. After the consultation at our Chelmsford clinic, we decided to use Saypha Volume Lidocaine Lip filler to Plump out his left side and equalize the overall look.
We were very happy with the result of the initial treatment but wanted a follow up appointment once the lip had settled in order to reassess and to top up if required. Paul therefore returned to us around 4 weeks later and although we were very happy with the way he looked we also felt a little top up would enhance things further. So we added a little more filler in to his top lip and put a little volume into his bottom lip. This certainly made for a much more symmetrical overal look that we were all more satisfied with.
