It is difficult to predict how many mls of fillers you would need until one starts injecting the lips. It is not recommended more than 1 ml at any given time. It's better to wait until swelling subsides, then decide if more is needed.

You have a nice shape and to achieve your desired fullness I would recommend to start with 1 ml (1 Syringe) of Hyaluronic Acid (Juvederm, Restyline, etc). After at least a month you may have another syringe injection, so it will gradually increase the size of your lips. Make sure your doctor is experienced and be patient, it will not happen in one treatment.

Lip augmentation

Thank you for your question and photos. You have good size lips to start with. If you want augmentation to get more size and shape then it is reasonable as long as it is done well. 'Kylie Jenner' had multiple injections over a long period of time. Everyone has different face, mouth, and lip shape so it is hard to promise 'Kylie' lips to anyone. It is helpful to know what you like to have as a goal but these things are hard to replicate due to inherent differences that cannot be changed. Get a consult for an opinion. Good luck

Lip filler planning

We get lots of requests for this! You will likely need to do 2 syringes BUT consider doing one, letting it settle in, then doing more. We can always add to the lips but we can't "suck it out". Another consideration is filler selection, especially if planning adding significant volume. The more "stiff" fillers can tend to "take over" the shape of the lip, making it look like a sausage...which is not the Kylie look. Softer options tend to maintain the natural lip shape, but just "bigger"- options include Restylane SILK, Belotero or the new Juvederm Volbella. Find an expert injector who uses microcannulas, this will minimize lip trauma.
