I Wish They All Could Be California Girls....With No More Than 1 Syringe of Juvederm in Their Lips

Hi Caligirl00,

For lip augmentation I would use no more than 1 syringe of Juvederm to treat upper and lower lips to give a noticeable difference while maintaining a natural look. You can always come back for a little more. Any more that 1 cc, and you are looking at adult video star lips (or Lisa Rinna's right upper lip).

As with everything else in facial plastic surgery, choose your injecting physician carefully. It is the craftsman, not the tool that will give you your desired natural results. Be well.

Juvederm for the lips

Typically no more than 1 syringe (approx 0.8 mL) of Juvederm is sufficient for the upper and lower lip. I typically involve my patients in the process, allowing them to view the progress of their lip enhancement during various stages of injection. This way the patient is not surprised by either over-filling or under-filling. I would encourage you to provide similar feedback to your provider.

Good luck.

Syringes needed may vary

Juvederm is an excellent product to plump lips and have the result last for several months. Juvederm is provided in sterile 0.8cc syringes, not in vials, so make sure your doctor is giving you want you want. The number of syringes needed depends on your lips and the desired increase in size. Juvederm is not as stiff as Cosmoplast or Restylane, so those products may be better for rim definition. Remember that this is an "off-label" use of filler (but VERY main-stream) so get the opinion of an experienced, reputable board certified specialist in a field of aesthetics such as dermatology or facial plastic surgery.

Use Juvederm in the Lips to Get a Natural Look

I like the answers I see here, and I agree completely. In 2014, we talk natural, we talk giving a little volume to the lips, not to make lips that are too big and not natural looking – it is not needed. A board-certified dermatologist or plastic surgeon can consult with you and determine which filler is best – Restylane, Juvéderm or Belotero – and decide how much is needed.

Juvederm for the Lips

In my experience, one syringe of Juvederm is sufficient to create a natural full look in both upper and lower lips. In some patients desiring correction of numerous long vertical lip lines or supernatural lip fullness, more than one syringe is usually necessary. In any case, it is always better to start conservatively and add filler as needed. I believe that formal aesthetic surgical training is very helpful to know how much and where to place these fillers.

Juvederm for the Lips

Because each patient has a different amount of volume loss and desires different results, there isn’t a standard amount of Juvederm that is used for injecting the lips. In my experience, no more than 1 full syringe is enough to give the lips a plump, yet natural appearance.
