Lip injection. Why could they only give me one syringe at a time? (Photo)
Doctor Answers 4
Thank you for your question and photo. Starting with 1 syringe is a good start because of the swelling that will occur. It is recommended to wait 2 for weeks for everything to fully settle allowing enough time for the swelling to subside. If you want fuller lips after that I would recommend going back for a second syringe after those first two weeks. Schedule a consultation with a board certified plastic surgeon in your area. Best of luck!
FYI a "cosmetic certified" doctor is not the same a board certified plastic surgeon certified by the American board of plastic surgery.

Most reputable physicians will inject the lips one syringe at a time. It is best to inject one syringe at a time rather than overfilling. However, if you saw your lips and the doctor did not want to inject more, perhaps they thought that you looked full. You should return in two weeks and discuss all of your concerns. Best, Dr. Green
