How do my lips look? (photos)

Lip swelling from Juvederm
Thin lips should be injected with less product in only in certain areas of the lips. The swelling is natural and should resolve in two weeks. If you are still unhappy you should consult a specialist in cosmetic injections. Best, Dr. Green
Lip Swelling After Filler
At this time, please wait until the two week mark to see your final result. The advantage of using a hyaluronic acid filler such as Juvederm is that the product can be partially or fully dissolved if you are dissatisfied with your result.
Best of luck,

Lip enhancement question
It i possible that you are still seeing some swelling, which may take 1-2 weeks to subside. I recommend that you follow up with the physician who performed your procedure. 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.
How do my lips look?
Your lips certainly do have more volume. When you add a large volume it can make the area above the lip stick out (you don't have a side photo but this is what people refer to as a duck look). This does not always happen with a large volume, but it can. It is improtant to realize that with lip fillers there can be some pretty impressive swelling that takes place afterwards. The greater the volume added, the greater the swelling. This can increase for the first 48 hours (so you may look even more full tomorrow). If this is happening, there are some treatments that can help to minimize it.
As far as what to do, at this point I would say give it time. It can take up to two weeks for the swelling to go away. After two weeks, if you are still too augmented then there is an injection you can receive to dissolve the filler. This does get rid of your initial investment in your lips, but it can help if you aren't happy.
In the future, consider receiving your injections from a physician injector from one of the core cosmetic specialties (facial plastic surgery, plastic surgery, and dermatology). Inform your injector the look you are going for. I always recommend to start out conservatively because you can always easily add more.
I hope this helps and good luck.
