Questionable filler in lip from 3 years ago
Removing 3 year old lip filler
Restylane does not last more than 18 months and in most cases the duration is about a year. Perlane is a thicker version of Restylane which is not meant to be placed in Lips but lasts just as long.
I suspect you were injected with something other than Restylane which would explain its persistence at 3 years. If this is the case, only s physical examination by an experienced Plastuc surgeon could suggest your treatment options.
