Lip Augmentation with Fillers or Lip Implant or Fat -- Go Slow, Use Cannulas
Fillers , implants or surgery can be used to treat lip asymmetries. Please see an expert for treatment options. Dr. Emer.
Naturally asymmetric lips
Symmetry can be improved using HA filler in the lips. It is not always possible to get the lips exactly even, but it can make them better. Your upper lip is small in proportion to the lower so I would add mostly to the upper lip. Keep in mind the Golden Ratio of 1:1.61, upper to lower lip ratio.
From your photograph you appear to be a very good candidate for lip augmentation. This is essentially performed by injecting a filler into the lip area to be augmented. It is a very artistic process, not just a scientific or medical procedure. I would think a product like Juvedem would be good for this case. As I say this is a somewhat artistic process and I would urge you to go to a board certified dermatologist or plastic surgeon who has performed many of these procedures and whose work you can analyze from before-and-after pictures. Do not price shop this type of product i.e. fillers; the products are the same but the treating injector is the key to a great result. I hope this helps. Dr. Adrian Stewart MD FAAD
Uneven lips. Can be fixed?
Hello Paulacicur,To help improve your uneven lips I would recommend a hyaluronic acid based filler such as Juvederm or Restylane Silk. These can help to improve the symmetry. I'd recommend you consult with one of the core aesthetic physician injectors (facial plastic surgeon, plastic surgeon, dermatologist).I hope this helps and good luck.
Conservative Lip Augmentation For Symmetry
Thank you for your question and for sharing your photographs. Sorry that you are having some concerns about the appearance of your lips. Based on your photographs, you appear to be an excellent candidate for a conservative lip augmentation for symmetry with a dermal filler such as Juvederm. Beautiful and natural results can be achieved. Please be sure to see an expert injector for an in-person consultation to fully discuss your concerns and your goals and expectations in order to determine the best treatment plan. Best wishes!
You should start out with 1cc of juvederm filler and go from there. You do not want to overdo too much filler in the lips. It also depends on the look you are going for too. You can always add more filler to the lips if needed. Just remember if you are going to do your lips and you do not want to bruise you should not take any aspirins or anything that will thin the blood since brusing can occur.
Uneven lips. Can be fixed?
Thank you for sharing your question and photographs. Though nothing replaces an in-person examination to assess your lip for shape and volume asymmetries you can likely improve upon your current appearance with the use dermal fillers. Conservatively placed you can add overall volume but by placing an extra amount to areas of diminished volume you can help narrow discrepancies between your right and left sides. See an ASPS board certified plastic surgeon in consultation.
