First, remember that swelling of your lips after your injection can make them look bigger and fuller than the final result. This can last about 5-10 days. Over that time, you may still see your lips get a bit smaller as the swelling goes away. After that, I recommend you revisit your injector and discuss what you like or don't like about your result. Looking at your photos, it appears that too much Juvederm was injected into your upper lip compared to your lower lip. For ideal balance between your upper and lower lip, a size ratio of 1 to 1.6 is considered the goal. This means that your lower lip should be slightly bigger than your upper lip. For women who would like a fuller upper lip, I suggest a ratio of closer to 1 to 1. This means that the size of your upper and lower lips should be about even.
To address your concerns, if you really don't want to have the filler dissolved, you can add more Juvederm to your lower lip to make the proportions more even. This will help address the "duck lips" look and give you better balance.Best of luck!
