Is One Syringe of Juvederm Enough for Top and Bottom Lip? (photo)

I would like to know if one syringe would make a significant change in both my top and bottom lip. I am looking for a pouty, bubble lip look not like a duck look but something plump and more natural at the same time.

Juvederm for lips

I would recommend against any filler based on this picture alone.  You have beautiful shape, proportion, and volume.  Any additional volume may look unnatural and possibly out of proportion to your other facial features.

Overfilling is not a good look

Personally, I do not think you need any filler to the lips. They are already a nice shape and size as mentioned by the other physicians.

Juvederm for lips

As mentioned by several others, you have a very nice shape and proportion to your lips.  I think one syringe will be enough to give a subtle increase in volume to  your lips.  Too much volume will make your lips appear less natural and overdone.  Start with one syringe and go from there, it will go far in someone like yourself with good volume to begin with.

Juvederm for Lips

Hi Sap.  Any more than 1 syringe would be way too much.  In fact you have excellent shape and volume to your lips already.  Be careful about goign too large or you will end up with a duck like appearance.

One syringe of Juvederm is enough

Your lips already have a very nice shape.  One syringe of Juvederm should be enough for the look you desire.  Have treatment with an experienced injector to ensure a beautiful result.

How much filler for the lips

The lips should be filled according to the proportions you already have, which are already nice and pretty full. I would say that one syringe will be fine for you, and the injector should follow your natural lines, injecting more into the bottom lip than the top lip. This avoids the overfilled troutpout look and just gives a natural fullness overall.

One Syringe of Juvederm Enough For Lip Augmentation

Depending on the present volume of your lips, one syringe of Juvederm Ultra Plus XC should be enough to give you the result you are looking for. It is always better to use a little less product at the beginning and add more later if needed rather than having an overdone look that you are unhappy with.

Is One Syringe Enough For Top & Bottom?

At my practice, it is usually recommended to start with one syringe and see how you feel about the results of this treatment.  If, after about 2 weeks, you feel you need more filler, you can always go in for more.  It is always best to start with a little and add more later, if desired.  It's a simple injection to add more, but once the product has been placed, it takes an injection of a different chemical to reverse it.  Check your area for doctors whose clinics may offer specials, or check the manufacturer of the product you are interested in as they sometimes offer coupons and rebates that would make multiple visits more affordable. “Dr. D”

Juvederm in lips

You have excellent native lip volumes. Full lips are a pleasure to inject!


One syringe, splint between your upper and lower lips, will make a moderate increase in size, and probably be just right unless you want an exaggerated look.

How much juvederm for lips

Juvederm is a terrific, soft hyaluronic acid filler for the lips. Your lips have great bulk and symmetry to begin with, but they can be enhanced further. 1 syringe is a great starting point, and you can always add more, but I would say this is enough for 90% of my patients.
