Lip fillers that last?
Doctor Answers 4
The only fillers that are appropriate for the lips are hyaluronic acid-based fillers such as Restylane or Juvederm. These fillers can be dissolved if needed. It is true that fillers generally don't last as long in the lips compared to other areas. Sometimes it's possible to inject a bit of Botox into the lip to reduce movement slightly and make the filler last longer. It's possible that you were under filled and you might want to consider using a full 1 cc syringe instead of a half syringe.
Longevity of Lip Fillers
Thank you for your question. It is a very common one! Longevity is a double edged sword. If the material and the injection technique are good, then longevity is a good thing. If either are not optimal, then longevity can be bad. This is why the hyaluronic acid products like Restylane, Juvederm, Belotero are good. If you don't like how they look, they can be dissolved, or go away in time. Most patients will use a full syringe for lips.
Another option is a permanent implant such as "Perma". This is a soft silicone implant placed via a simple technique. Fat transfer to your lips is another option. You should see a surgeon who can computer image for you what is realistic to expect.
Typically after lip augmentation, the size of the lips will go down about 25% after the swelling subsides. While restylane silk is a good filler, there are others that may last longer.

Hi and thanks for your question. You can try longer lasting HA fillers like Juvederm Volbella or Emervel lips . They can last up to 18 month but if you are a very active person they might not last very long . The other option is to use semipermanent collagen base filler like Bellofil but if you do not like the result they last 3-5 years. I suggest to consult an expert physician
