Hmm, did you know that the Artefill website says it is not to be used in the lips? http://www.artefill.com/patient/what-is-artefill/frequently-asked-questions.asp

Hi Megan,,, well saw my surgeon last week and had 2 more syringes put into my lips. Well,,,,, again they look amazing while swollen,, but three days later as the swelling goes down so do my lips. I don't know what to think or feel anymore except anger. I have spent so much money and had i have known this would be the outcome,, i would have had permanent implants put in. The doc says give it time,, but don't know that i trust or believe it,,,, hard to believe they are magically going to grow but i am hoping i am wrong.I am hoping an ARTEFILL EXPERT reads this and can offer me hope as to the situation. So,, the jury is out on this. I guess all i can do is give it time and see. They are bigger then what they were,, but not what i was expecting the outcome to be. I have had 4 syringes of perlane before in the past(amazing stuff) and my lips looked amazing. So,, i guess i just wait and see. Hope your weekend was a nice one,,,,, :)))

they where amazing when they were just done,, the swelling went down after a few days and so did my lips. I am SO disappointed. He said several months claiming the microspheres and collagen would bond but the only thing i seem to have is smaller lips and the bumps that everyone talks about when they do the artefill. I go back to see him this week ,, i find it hard to believe the lips are magically going to get bigger and grow again. I hope an artefill expert will see my question and let me know if indeed they will get bigger over time. My doctor is not being overly supportive either and should stand behind his work,, i will let you know what happens when i go this week. Thanks for asking :))))

I can definitely understand why you would be disappointed. Have they given you an estimate of when they should plump back up by, if they are going to?
