What could I do to make my upper lip look better? (Photo)

I hate how it drops so much in the front, almost like a birds beak, with the lip almost folding in as it heads to the corner of my mouth.

Juvederm And Restylane Can Balance Out Thin Upper Lips

Judicious use of Juvederm or Restylane can fill out your upper lip, creating a better balance with your lower lip. Please consult a board-certified dermatologist.

Lip Filler with Microcannula Technique

Thank you for sharing your question and photo. You appear to be an excellent candidate for lip augmentation using a hyaluronic acid filler such as Restylane or Juvederm. A small amount of volume to both the upper and lower lip will make your lips appear more even while still looking natural. I recommend consulting with an injector experienced with the microcannula technique. This technique allows filler to be injected evenly while minimizing pain and bruising. Please consult with a board certified specialist who can evaluate you in person and offer more specific recommendations. Good luck!

Lip Augmentation

Thank you for your question. Lip augmentation through fillers can increase the size of your upper lips and can create a more symmetric pair of lips overall. I suggest that you move forward with a consultation with a board certified facial plastic surgeon and consider fillers before a more permanent surgical or injectable procedure.

Best wishes,

What could I do to make my upper lip look better?

Hello, and thanks for your question and photo. It appears as though your upper lip is disproportionately small compared to the upper lip. This can easily be corrected using a hyaluronic acid filler such as Juvederm. In order to determine the best treatment plan for you, I recommend an in-person consultation with an expert. Best of luck, Dr. Frucht.

Gettting a Natural Looking Lip With Fillers

In our office , we like most all of the hyaluronic fillers on the market, including the Juvederm and Restylane families of products. Since aesthetic contouring is as much an art as a science, a good injector should help you decide on the choose of filler. It will depend on where the filler will be used, how what your expectations are for the results and after-care.
We prefer a more natural look when volumizing and contouring faces and lips .  Good luck with getting exactly the look you love!

What could I do to make my upper lip look better?

Thank you for sharing your question and photographs.  I think that you can make a nice improvement in your upper lip appearance with a hyaluronic acid based dermal filler to add volume to the areas of folding to smooth the lips and better balance it relative to your lower lip.  Be sure to see an ASPS board certified plastic surgeon in order to maximize your results.
