Face and Lip Fillers

Dermal fillers, also known as injectable implants, soft tissue fillers, lip and facial fillers, or wrinkle fillers. Dermal fillers help to create a smoother and/or fuller appearance in the face, including nasolabial folds (the lines extending from the sides of the nose to the edges of the mouth), cheeks, chin, lips, and back of the hands.

Since some dermal fillers are naturally absorbed over time, you may need to repeat the procedure after some time to maintain the desired effect. Successful results will depend on the underlying tissue structure and the volume and type of filler used.

At the Kennington Surgery we use only cross-linking hyaluronic acid such as Revolax. This crosslinking modification allows HA to fill wrinkles and maintain it\’s shape for a longer period of time.


It usually take 45 minutes.

The time that the effect lasts depends on the filler material and the area where it is injected, but in general from 9 to 18 Months.

You must be 22 years or older.

We recommend fillers to restore the lost volume of the lower face, Lips, marionette line, chin and jawline to create a youthful and authentic look. However, the dermal filler can be injected anywhere into your body from the corner of your eyes to the buttocks.

Fillers are generally considered safe with mild discomfort for a day or two, however; side effects may happen:

The most common side effect are:

  • Bruising and ecchymosis
  • Redness
  • Swelling
  • Pain
  • Tenderness

  • Raised bumps in or under the skin (nodules or granulomas)
  • Less common risks include:
    • Inflammation
    • Infection
    • A sore at the injection site
    • Allergic reaction

The major contraindications to the use of a filler are as follows: active infection near the site of injection, allergy/hypersensitivity to the material or to the lidocaine mixed in the syringe of the filler, suffering from mental health issues, being pregnant or breastfeeding.
