Lip injections would be a great place to start if you are unhappy with the shape and appearance of your mouth.
Lip injections would be a great place to start if you are unhappy with the shape and appearance of your mouth. Lip injectables that are hyaluronic based are excellent options because they have a very low risk of allergic reaction, as hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring substance in the body. Lip injectables work by providing added volume, improved lip definition and shape. Ask your physician which hyaluronic product is right for you to deliver a smooth and precise injection into the thin and delicate tissues of the lips. Results typically last six months. With the new Juvederm Volbella product you may have results that last up to one year.
I do think you would be a good candidate for lip augmentation with a hyaluronic acid filler. I ususally prefer a softer filler such as Restylane Silk. To maximize the likelihood of a favorable outcome, I recommend only getting treated by a well-trained and experienced dermatologist or plastic surgeon.
Best of luck, Dr. Frucht.

Volumizing Fillers Can Work Well For Nonsurgical Lip Augmentation & Enhancement
Adding a small amount of volumizing filler to the sides will likely remedy this. Juvederm Ultra Plus XC would be my choice of injectable filler for this purpose in my Upper East Side Manhattan practice. In my Israel satellite facility, where a far greater number of regulatory agency approved fillers are available, I would opt for Princess Volume.
Be sure you seek consultation with a board certified aesthetic core physician with expertise in nonsurgical lip enhancement. And make sure to ask to see his/her before and after photos before proceeding.
Best of luck to you.

What can I do to "enlarge" my lips?
Lip augmentation - best approach
- A great choice for you is a hyaluronic acid lip filler.
- It is done in the office, results are 6-9 months and if you don't like the look, it is reversibile.
- This will fill out your lips
- Your photo also suggests that the outer lip edges are pale, not pink like the rest of the lip.-
- This makes the lip look shorter than it is.
- Cosmetic pigmentation can add color to this area and make the lips visible by making them pink.
- However there is no no cosmetic surgery to widen the lips.
Always see a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon.
