Lip Augmentation to Balance the Profile
The answer is that fillers will certainly help. I like to use Juvederm for lip augmentation and I have had really great, natrual looking results with lips such as yours augmenting essentially just the border of the upper lip. This should project your upper lip out so that it is in line with the lower. You should not need much filler to get this done - probably a half syringe will do. Lip augmentation is a bit of an art form - making them look perfectly natural can be tricky. Make sure that you find an injector who is very experienced in lip augmentation.
Hope that helps!

You did a great analysis of your lips. From the front they are nice and full, but on the side your upper lip is set back farther than what it should be from an aesthetic standpoint. There are treatments to help improve this appearance. There are both injectable options and some surgical options I'd recommend you first start with an injectable to see how you like the result. In my opinion, the key is to be conservative with your filler injection. The reason is that you start out with such a full lip. If you do too much to try to bring the lip forward then you can create an upper lip that is too full and overdone.
I'd recommend you consult with a facial plastic surgeon to learn about your options and ways to improve your profile view.
I hope this helps and good luck.

I think you're an excellent candidate for lip augmentation with a hyaluronic acid filler. You would likely only need one syringe. To maximize the likelihood of a favorable outcome, I recommend that you only get treated by a well-trained and experienced dermatologist or plastic surgeon.
Hope this opinion is helpful to you. Best of luck, Dr. Frucht.
Lip Injections for Symmetry
You do have nice, full lips, but I see your concern about your profile. I would recommend a conservative lip augmentation with filler to address this concern. Make sure you consult with an experienced injector.
