Make sure who is doing the injection (MD or nurse) and how much experience they have with the various injectables (restylane, perlane, juvederm, sculptra, radiesse, and fat).  Radiesse and sculptra are not advised for the lip, and ask how many fillers/month they perform.  >100/month is a good number.  >200/month is even better.

Is he any good?

+1

ask your doctors, friends, family. at some point someone will have some experience with almost anyone. if non one you no can give you feedback, then consider contacting ASPS. if he/she is a member you can reassure yourself that at least the practitioner is board certified. good luck

How to Choose the Right Physician for your Cosmetic Treatment

+1

Always ask about the experience of the injecting physician and make sure they have all of the "tools" to use, such as all of the various facial fillers (Sculptra, Radiesse, Perlane, Restylane, and Juvederm) that are approved for use in the United States. The effectiveness of your treatment depends on your physician’s ability to visualize the desired changes and to select and skillfully administer the best treatments alone or in combination. Since every face is different, the experience and technique of your physician injector is the most critical part to your achieving a beautiful, natural result. Always ask to see before and after pictures of patients they have personally injected. If possible, look for someone who is on the medical education faculty for one of the facial fillers. If they have been selected to train other physicians how to treat the aging face they are likely to be good, experienced injectors.
