Can anyone recommend NJ/Philly docs specializing in dramatic lips?

It can definitely take more than one syringe of Juvederm or Restylane to have really beautiful results in your lips. I would start conservatively since you can always add more volume later on. Best, Dr. Green
"Most beautiful voluminous luscious" lips :)
Results from lip augmentation using hyaluronic acid gel (Restylane or Juvederm) are variable depending on how much product you like. Some people look awesome with 1cc (1 syringe). Others like a slightly bigger look and go with 1.5cc (1.5 syringes). And I have other patients who like bigger still, and go with 2cc (2 syringes). So it really depends on your taste and your goals.
If you've NEVER had lip injections before, there will be a learning curve that you will have to traverse to see if 1, 1.5, or 2 syringes is what you like. Once you know what looks best in your lips, you can stick with that volume indefinitely, until your tastes change. (The volume that you think looks good in your lips when you're 25 is probably going to be different than when you're 50.)
I personally like the results we get with Restylane Silk - it tends to give a more prominent volumization that tends to last longer than other products, and therefore gives you a bit more for your money. But, you'll need to figure out how many syringes to use and that might take a couple sessions with an expert provider. Patients often come in every 6-8 months for their touch up, so get into a schedule that works for your lifestyle and budget. And enjoy! -Randolph Capone, MD, FACS
