Lip Fillers and Braces
If you have had filler placed in your lips while braces were on, that filler will stay where it was injected for the expected amount of time. If the braces are removed soon after the filler was injected the overall look of the lips may change slightly. Having braces on the teeth does push the lips out to a certain degree, removing them will slightly change the position and look of the lips. This happens whether or not filler is in the lips. If the overall effect of removing the braces is noticeable and you wish to have fuller looking lips, consult your physician about possibly adding some additional filler. Thank you for your question and best wishes!

Lip filler after Braces
Hello, and thank you for your question! The answer to your question is "yes". Braces, because they occupy space between the lips and the teeth, push the lip out and forward. After you have your braces removed, your lip will be slightly smaller and flatter in appearance than it was before. This is simple to correct with more filler after the braces are removed if you wish to do that. I hope this helps, and good luck!
