Lip Injections in the GTA
These days, when it comes to getting lip injections in the GTA, there are countless non-medical options available to the extent that it can be difficult to determine which one is right for you. Oftentimes, cost and the desired end result play an integral role in choosing one treatment option over another.

At Toronto Facial Plastic Surgery, our top priority is the safety, comfort, and satisfaction of all of our patients and we’ll do whatever it takes to make sure that you leave our clinic looking your absolute best.
What Are Lip Injections?
Lip injections and fillers are a safe non-surgical alternative to using collagen injections and silicone lip implants, both of which rely heavily on foreign substances that often render unattractive, asymmetrical, and inconsistent results. While there are several different big brands that are used for non-surgical lip augmentation procedures by most facial plastic surgery clinics, they all have one common denominator: hyaluronic acid. This is a naturally occurring substance that’s produced by the body and by incorporating it in modern lip injection and filler products, the risk of infection, rejection, and allergic reaction is greatly reduced or eradicated altogether. The only downside to using HA fillers is that the body metabolizes the substance a lot faster than it would a foreign substance and this means you’ll need more frequent refills. The same goes for fat transfer injections (a procedure in which excess fat cells are extracted from other parts of your body and then injected into the lips).
What Do Lip Injection Procedures Involve?
First and foremost, any reputable and experienced injectionist will want to meet with their prospective patients and run a thorough mental and physical examination prior to agreeing to perform any type of body modification procedure. Dr. Gantous at Toronto Facial Plastic Surgery will explain all of your lip augmentation options to you thoroughly, then ask you a series of important questions, and perform a physical examination of the area you’d like to change—in this case, the lips. He will discuss the logistics of the procedure with you and determine the likelihood of achieving your desired end result. Keep in mind that every patient’s facial structures and genetic makeup is totally unique and it’s impossible to end up looking exactly like another person. The point of facial plastic surgery is to correct any existing abnormalities that might be negatively affecting your health and to enhance your natural appearance, not completely alter it.
Types of Lip Injections and Fillers
There’s a wide variety of lip fillers available on the market. Here are some of the most popular ones that are used at Toronto Facial Plastic Surgery:
As mentioned, all of the above contain the key ingredient, hyaluronic acid, and they all have a wide range of products that yield different results, depending on what your end goal is. Whether you’re after dramatically redefined, plumped up lips, or even if you’re simply looking for slight definition and reshaping, these companies manufacture and sell the right injectables and fillers for you right here in Toronto.
