Lip lift or lip implants? (photos)
Doctor Answers 6
I would urge you to return for more fillers and see if you like the results. I have seen many patients who are unhappy with their surgical results and are unable to correct them. New Juvederm Volbella will be released soon and should be a great alternative for you. Best, Dr. Green

BEWARE THE ENEMY OF GOOD IS PERFECT
Many years ago, I had a mother daughter that had an illegal filler placed in their lips at a local hair salon. Both had obvious overfilled duck lips. What fascinated me was that the mother would come in for more filler and complain that her daughter had over filled her lips and looked like a duck. The daughter would come in for more filler and confide that her mother had overfilled her lips and looked like a duck. Each recognized the deformity in the other, but did not recognize the deformity in themselves.
This is very common with lips. Patients frequently request more and more filler, not realizing that they look more and more unnatural. I frequently have to warn, enough is enough.
The picture you placed with the Q-tip is not a natural looking lip. A permanent procedure may not be reversible if you over do it or later decide it was a mistake.
Find a surgeon who cares more about your best interest, than profiting from an unrealistic request.
I see so many beautiful actresses who have distorted their lips. Fortunately, fillers reabsorb. Implants and surgical procedures may result in irreversible damage. Beware.
