How to get pouty lips
As previously mentioned 1 cc (one syringe) of Juvederm is not enough to give most patient big, pouty lips. The "ideal lips" models that you have shared likely had multiple syringes (from 2 up to 5, in come cases) of Juvederm. This is achievable with you, or similar patients with thin lips.
I recommend going slow and spacing the syringes apart with multiple injections. For example, do 1 or 2 syringes and wait a week. Then do more, if necessary. Going slow helps with excessive swelling and allows you to determine exactly how full you want your lips to be.
For someone your age, a lip lift and fat transfer is too aggressive in my opinion. It also will not produce the result you are looking for. A lip lift can produce undesired scarring. Fat transfer to the lips is a good option, however, the end result is more unpredictable compared to Juvederm.
I would recommend an expert injector (facial plastic surgeon, plastic surgeon, or dermatologist) who performs a lot of lip injections. He/she will be comfortable using multiple syringes of Juvederm to achieve your desired look.
Best of luck!

Lip augmentation is a fabulous procedure for enhancing your own natural lips. The amount of augmentation is based on your natural shape and the amount of fullness that you want. From your photo it would take more than one syringe to get the result that you are describing. For the best results please consult a dermatologist with a great deal of experience with facial injections.
