Expectations after lip filler
The longevity of fillers can vary from person to person depending on location injected. Generally, the effect on lips tends to subside more quickly than other areas of the face. It is important to have a discussion about expectation prior to injectable treatments. Treatment of the lips can be challenging since the swelling that is present at a bout a week often confuses patients about the expected end results. It is possible that you will get a longer lasting results with a more volumizing filler like restylane lyft.
If the juvederm isnt lasting I would try another filler such as lyft or voluma. in some people certain fillers last longer than others. Best, Dr. Emer.
Immediately after the injection of Juvederm, the swelling creates the impression of a larger lip. Once the swelling goes, generally in about two weeks, what is left is the final result. It does appear that you achieved an increase in size, but to permanently reach the look of the early, swollen days you may need a little more filler. Then the result will last several months.
Juvederm is a fabulous product for the lips but some patients require more product or want larger lips. It still looks like there is product left. I would discuss your concerns with your physician during your next visit. Best, Dr. Green
