Restylane injections for full lips
Your lips look very full and natural at the present time, personally I would recommend not having fillers.

I would wait 6-10 months and then carefully have only or mostly the lower lip reinjected, so as to achieve
the"Golden Ratio" where thw lower lip should be 1.618 thicker than the upper lip.
That said, both Restylane and Juvederm are excellent lip fillers.

My answer to which #filler is best for #lips #juvederm or#restylane
cosmetic procedures should whisper not shout. That being said your desire to inject your lips to the look more like the photos you have posted is a personal decision. Some basic things you should be aware of when having lips injected
restylane and juvederm are both excellent choices for lip augmentation
juvederm can result in a fuller appearance due to the hydrophilic properties. I have used both with great success and with excellent satisfaction. It truly is personal choice and typically for the lips either one is good.
Swelling is something that will be definitely be an issue with lip injections. I have found that lip injections with disposable flexible cannulas have significantly reduced swelling and lumpiness. I believe icing before and after injections will reduce likelihood of bruising and swelling as well. (Cannula
injection technique has reduced bruising to almost 1% of the time. Also satay away from anything that thins the blood for two weeks prior such as aspirin, Advil, green tea, vit E, ginger, garlic, glucosamine. All of these have caused unwanted bruising. Proportions of the lips are very important. Your lower lip should be larger than your upper lip. Looking at your photo it appears that your upper lip is slightly larger than your lower lip. If I were injecting your lips I would inject more into your lower lip and very little into your upper lip. This would restore the 1/3 to 2/3 proportions that is typically seen in nature. Also when injecting I would stay away from vermillion border of lip and inject closer to the wet dry line (more in the center of the lip). This will reduce the chance of getting duck lips or the unnatural look you fear.
Injector aesthetic is very important. Your injector should be able to judge what is acceptable for your face. It's always better to err on the side of conservative with these procedures. You can always put more filler in later if you so desire. Best of luck
