Will lip filler benefit me ???
Lip Filler Options
Thank you for your question and photo. More pictures would be helpful to see your lips at rest. Lip filler will give you more fullness in the lips. Swelling and "the duck" look will be prominent for up to 2 weeks. We usually tell our patients to wait a full 2 weeks for everything to settle. It is best that you have an in person consultation with an experienced injector. Please consult with a board certified plastic surgeon. Best of luck

You are a great candidate for lip fillers but because your lips are thin I would caution you on not having them over-injected. Please consider Restylane or Restylane Silk for your lip injections. The philtrum could be made to look natural by using these products for your lip injections. Please consult an experienced dermatologist for these fillers with a speciality in cosmetic injections.

I do think it is worth giving a lip filler a try, only have a small amount to begin with to see if you like the results. If it is performed correctly it should not give you a "duck face". If you feel that your philtrum is too long, there is a minor surgical procedure called a lip lift which can shorten the philtrum and lift the lip. I would recommend having a consultation with a plastic surgeon who can determine what would give you the best cosmetic result.
