How much Juvederm would I need? (Photo)

I want big lips. Not like Lisa Rinna but more like Kylie Jenner (I know I know). The rest of my face is pretty big and I have defined features all except my mouth which is disproportionately small. And I just like bigger lips in general. I'm trying to gauge how much I would need so I can make a budget. I've seen before and afters with one syringe and I hardly notice a difference.

Lip augmentation

One syringe of Juvederm Ultra will provide a wonderful augmentation of your lips. If you were to have more than one cc, you would be more likely to develop swelling and hematomas that could last a week or more, or even more serious complications. I do not believe patients should have to suffer through a week or more of swollen lips and that it is better to add more filler about two weeks later if needed than to increase the risk of serious side effects by injecting large volumes in a single session.

Hi foorayhackeysackey
I would recommend starting off with 1cc syringe of juvederm ultra xc.  You can always go back and add more.  Keep in mind you will have swelling after your injections.  It is always better to start off slow if this is your first time doing injections.  Best of luck to you

Juvaderm for Lip Augmentation

Hello.  Thank you for your question.  For your first time, I would start with one syringe and see how you like it.  If, after a couple weeks, you find that you want more augmentation, you can add a second syringe.  I hope this information is helpful.

How many syringes of filler do I need for my lips

I would start with one syringe of Restylane. And add a second a few weeks later if needed. A 1ml syringe has less than a 1/4 teaspoon of material - which is not a lot and why you won't see dramatic crazy differences with a single syringe usually. But for a first time patient, getting two syringes right away can just be too much. So budget for two but start with one. Remember that fillers are something you have to maintain so you will probably need to get these done every 6-8 months, so that's a budget you will want to continue to have.

Lip filler

Start with one syringe and you can always add more.  There is no need to make a commitment to 2 syringes before your treatment.  Be well.
