Not happy with volume
Second filler injection
Restylane injections for the Lips
It is only one day after there procedure and you really cannot judge the results after one one day. There is always some swelling and you really need to wait 10 days to see the full effects of the procedure before you decide to remove it. Best, Dr. Green

It is very common to have swelling for 7-10 days after having a filler injected, especially to the lips. Let the lips heal and the swelling go down before having additional filler added.

Juvederm vs. Restylane for the Lips
For me, I can achieve plumper lips yet still soft and shapely and cushiony using Juvederm product. It is often my favorite in younger women and my experience is younger women prefer its look, just as you posted in the desired look photos.
Go back and ask your doctor what he or she thinks....I always like to assess lips I have injected a week or two after to be sure the patient is happy and that we have achieved the desired aesthetic outcome. Your doctor can always add more.
By the way, the lips you show in your desired outcome photos appear to be more than one syringe of filler, though its hard to tell since there are no photos of that person. Also, since you stated that your doc used 1 syringe in NLF's MLF's as well as lips, that means that less than 1 syringe was put in the lips which perhaps was inadequate for your desired outcome.
Most experienced injectors in the bay area charge about $600 per syringe for lip fillers, so keep this in mind if/when you shop for a new injector. Anything much less and you are probably not dealing with authentic product nor the experience level you need to achieve your desired outcomes.
