Larger LIPS? Try Juvederm ULTRA XC or Resytane SILK

{{ voteCount >= 0 ? '+' + (voteCount + 1) : (voteCount + 1) }}
Restylane SILK can produce swelling in the lip just as Juvaderm Ultra XC can. Since they are both hyaluronic acids and hydrophilic(water loving) water is drawn into the area with fast injection, causing exaggerated swelling. This is usually a temporary problem that will resolve with ice, benadryl orally and time. Contact your provider if the swelling persists or if you have increased pain.

I believe you are doing very well, time is your friend. Let the swelling resolve, re-assess your lips in 3-6 weeks then decide.

Lip injections

Juvederm and Restylene are both hyluronic acids that are made by two different companies.  That being said, you would have had the same result with either brand.  Initially, swelling peaks at 3 days and goes away at about 7-10 days in which you have your end result.  The filler didn't go away, just the swelling did.  I would wait three weeks before adding more filler and just be careful on how much the second time around, you don't want to over do it.

You have a very nice result

Right after filler injections, your lips are swollen and then after 24-48 hr the swelling goes away and you are left with just the filler.  So it's not that the filler melted away, the swelling did.  You can always have more filler added, although I think you look very natural and I'd try not to over do it.

Juvederm and Lip Injections

There are a myriad of fillers to inject into the lips.  Restylane is a good choice but it sounds like you need a slightly thicker filler.  I would definitely try Juvederm for the next lip injection.  Please consult a board certified dermatologist with experience in lip injections for the best cosmetic results.

How much filler and for how long does it last in the lips.

Thank you for your question.

It sounds like you need a slightly thicker filler such as Juvederm Ultra or maybe some Ultra Plus in the corners of your mouth.  You can expect it to last 3-6 months. The motion of the mouth muscles usually makes filler in this area wear off quicker.

To be sure, see two or more board-certified providers in your area for a complete evaluation to make sure you are a good candidate and that it is safe for you to have these treatments.

I hope this helps.

In the future, you may consider permanent lip augmentation.

{{ voteCount >= 0 ? '+' + (voteCount + 1) : (voteCount + 1) }}
In many patients we prefer to use Silikon-1000, an off-label filler for permanent lip augmentation results. Your results and lip size may be gradually increased to your liking at monthly intervals.

For now, your lips look nice and natural-looking.

Hope this helps.

Lip augmenation

{{ voteCount >= 0 ? '+' + (voteCount + 1) : (voteCount + 1) }}
Your post-treatment photo shows a great result on a beautiful face; and I would be hesitant to add much more volume to your lips.  It is true that patients often like the especially puffy look of the post-lip-injection swelling, and once this resolves, some feel like the injected product has dissolved.  Typically, this is not the case, and your photos show nice added volume.  If you were to add more volume, remain conservative.  Both Juvederm and Restylane are good hyaluronic acid fillers for off-label use in the lips; while some practitioners and patients prefer one over the other, there's no consensus as to which one is better.  Your experienced injection provider should help you determine your treatment plan.
