A few are lucky to be born with full, pout-worthy lips. Many of the rest of us visit cosmetic providers to learn more about their cosmetic lip enhancement options. “I want fuller lips but I don’t want them to look fake” is a common statement during the consultations. Overfilled and fake-looking full lips are often referred to as duck lips.
Dr. Nowak and Nowak Aesthetics recommend facial fillers to significantly improve the size and shape of your lips and make them as natural-looking as possible. To achieve this, the injector you select plays a large role. He or she should have in-depth knowledge of the amount of filler needed for augmentation and where exactly in the lips it should be injected for the most aesthetically pleasing outcomes.
Who should consider fillers for lip augmentation?
Lip augmentation is a good option if you have the following concerns:
- You have extremely thin lips that tend to disappear when you smile
- You have downturned lips
- You want to redefine lip borders
- You want to fill in the upper lip lines
- You want fuller lips to improve facial balance and harmony
- You have volume loss in the lip area caused by aging
It is important to note that dermal fillers only provide temporary results for lip enhancement. Results typically last from three to six months but some can last up to a year. It all depends on the type of filler used and the extent to which your lips were filled. Lip implants are your best bet if you want permanent results.
Additionally, some patients opt to combine fillers with muscle relaxants such as Botox and Dysport to prevent the appearance of upper lip lines.
