Lip Injections/Lip Enhancement


Everyone is a unique and beautiful canvas when they enter the clinic and this is celebrated at your premiere aesthetic medicine clinic, Eleventh Heaven™. One aspect that contributes to our uniqueness are different facial structures. Beneath and around all of our features, including lips, everyone has different skin thickness, fat tissue, muscle strength and bone structures. It is important to remember that as we age, these become further compromised, requiring further aesthetic, artistic and anatomic expertise. Dr. Ricky is an artist in his own right and will leave you with a beautiful pièce de résistance.


Lip filler is a very commonly requested procedure in Brisbane but this procedure requires expertise and appreciation of facial artistry.

When expectedly crafted, this procedure serves to:

1. Enhance facial beauty.

2. Rejuvenate and look younger (e.g. gentle revolumisation of deflated lips due to ageing process)

3. Improve or restore positive emotional attributes (e.g. downturned lips are associated with sad emotions).

Here is a peer-reviewed medical journal article about the relationship of the lips and facial beauty.



A one-size-fits-all approach just would not do when designing your lips. We will first get inspiration from your eyes, the depth of your chin and even your personal style when assessing for your best-suited lip size & shape. Whether you are wanting subtle volume with hydration or luscious lips, balance between the top and lower lip is key and your natural proportioning will be integrated in to the design.


Your natural lip shape will be highly dependent upon your surrounding structures of tissue and this approach is paramount to us and Dr Ricky. Any deficiency or ageing structures will always be taken in to account and will require treatment. Dr. Ricky will utilise his highly trained eye (and hand) to skilfully develop and augment to create your perfect lip border and shape, which in turns, enhance and harmonise your facial beauty.


Ageing factors can often be overlooked when assessing lips, however it’s important that this be observed. To ensure a strong and sufficient foundation for your beautiful lips at any age, a solid foundation on which to build is essential. Next infusing your lips with hydration and volume are in order to fulfil your lip goals.

Beyond The Box

We think far ahead before we pick up our syringe and inject. Many factors come into our mind when we design your lips – your personal style/personality, what your lips look like in 3D view and during animation, what your lips may look like in long run.
