Restylane and Juvederm Add Natural Volume

You would probably need at least two syringes to increase the volume of your lips to the degree you desire. The hyaluronic-acid-based fillers such as Juvederm, Volbella, Restylane and Restylane Silk are the best for lip augmentation. If you add too much, they can be dissolved with hyaluronidase. Please consult a board-certified dermatologist to get the best results.

Number of Syringes for Lip FIller

Based on your photos, you are looking for significant augmentation of your lips.  I believe this level of augmenation is based completed over a few treatment sessions.  I would start with 1 syringe in each lip and gradually add over a few weeks. I think you would require 3-4 syringes of filler.  Based on your lip shape, I am not sure it is possible to get your lips as large as your would like them but you could get a significant improvement.

Lip Augmentation

Thank you for your inquiry and for providing your expected results with photos. In my opinion, i believe you will need more than 1 - 2 syringes. Perhaps 2 syringes for upper lip and 2 syringes for lower lip. An in person consultation and assessment will be necessary to determine exactly how many and what type of filler you require. Be sure to always see a board certified plastic surgeon for best results.

I want big lips like the picture - how many syringes are needed?

I would say probably 2 syringes. I would usually do this in steps separated by about 2 weeks. This allows for a better injection when all the swelling has subsided.

Lip augmentation with Volbella

I would use 1.2 cc of volbella, to create a natural, full look.  It is likely that you would need an additional 0.6cc (one more syringe) a month or 2 after the initial treatment, to achieve the look you presented with the photos.

Getting Lips You Love--Lip Augmentation with Fillers (Restylane, Juvederm), implants or fat

An in person evaluation is needed to determine how much filler would be needed. These fillers, (Volbella, Restylane, Juvederm) are good to create a symmetrical and full lip. Implants or fat are alternative options. See an expert for a formal evaluation. Best, Dr. Emer

How many ml of fillers to achieve these lips?

Hello, and thanks for your question and photos. For lips, I like Volbella, Restylane Silk, and Juvederm. I would have to examine you in person to recommend one product over the other. I would start with 1 cc, and you could always add more still if you desired  more fullness. In order to determine the best treatment plan for you, I recommend an in-person consultation with an expert. Best of luck, Dr. Frucht.
