Correcting "Duck Lip" with Lip Reduction and Lip Lift?

I was talked into injecting a permanent filler (Artecoll) to augment my upper lip by a PS in Europe 3 years ago. I am very unhappy with the outcome. While it balanced the size of my upper lip with my lower lip, which was normally big, it is protruding, creating a "duck lip" effect and did not really address the space between my nose and my upper lip. I want to know if an upper lip reduction and an upper lip lift (which is what I originally wanted) would address the situation. Thank you!

I perform many lip reconstructions by removing permanent fillers on the lips. The procedure is difficult but can yield impressive results. Raffy Karamanoukian Los Angeles

Permanent fillers like Artecoll are difficult to "correct", and most likely you will need surgical excision of some of this unwanted volume. To find a physician to do this for you, call around until you find a Plastic Surgeon that has had to do surgical revision on a permanent filler in this area, they will have the training AND the experience to help you.
