What filler for lips

You have very full and attractive lips so to achieve enhancement you want a subtle filler that gives greater definition and smoothness without change in volume.  For that Restylane silk or Belotero are the best suited to accomplish your dreams.

Lip Augmentation with Fillers or Lip Implant or Fat -- Go Slow, Use Cannulas

Lip fillers do great and look natural if done with skill and expertise. Juvederm or Restylane Silk are my favorite for first time injections. Cannulas limit pain and swelling and are a great technique but often to get the lips fully fine contoured you need needles as well. I suggest you see an expert for treatment and someone who truly understands contouring. Best, Dr. Emer

Lip fillers

Almost any of the available fillers will augment your lips. However, based on your photos, one should be very conservative in treating you, because you already have very full lips. Even a little amount of filler can make you look unnatural. Cannulas work as welll as needles but may be less traumatic.

I've convinced myself to get lip fillers!

Thank you for your question and photographs and congratulations on your desire to pursue lip enhancement through filler placement.  Fillers allow patients great flexibility in achieving a desired lip size and shape and can be safely performed with either cannula or needle technique with equivalent results.  As fillers come in pre-filled syringes you can first start with a single syringe split between your upper and lower lip and after two weeks when your lip tissue soften you can have additional filler placed if desired.  This stepwise enhancement minimizes some of the initial side effects with fillers, namely bruising and swelling.  For my patients I tend to recommend Juvederm Ultra Plus for those looking for volume enhancement and greater pout.  Hope this helps.
