How can I achieve this look on lips? Juvederm? (Photo)

Hello, I have semi full lips but I feel like the corners are a little thin, especially when I smile or in pictures (see pics) I really would like my lips to look like the last picture I am attaching. Can this be achieved with Juvederm? or does this require surgery? Any information is much appreciated. Thank you

How can I achieve this look on lips? Juvederm?

{{ voteCount >= 0 ? '+' + (voteCount + 1) : (voteCount + 1) }}

Hi, I have performed many lip augmentation procedures using dermal fillers or lip implants for over 30 years. Following the beauty principles outlined in my book on face and body beauty, the upper lip should be approximately 75 % the size of the lower lip for the lips to appear balanced. The lips can be augmented including the outer segments using a dermal filler (Juvederm or Restylane).

Dermal filers and lip implants offer far more reliable volume to augment the lips than permanent fillers or fat injections that are also associated with increased, unwanted, side effects.

Hope this helps.

Corners of lips thin

 Dear bluedreams86:

  From just the photos you have provided, you appear to be an excellent candidate for lip augmentation.  One of the hyaluronic acid fillers, such as Belotero or Juvederm, can be used to enhance the corners of the lips as well as the center, but a tiny amount of Botox above the vermillion border can evert the lips slightly so that you can have more of the lip showing, creating the appearance of a fuller lip.

  All the best,   Dr. Clark

Enhancing the lateral upper lip

The lateral aspect of the upper lip can be enhanced with fillers. If it can be done exactly as the picture is impossible to say because the doctor is limited by your anatomy.

Fuller lips

You will need to have the filler placed both centrally in your lower lip and then tapered toward the corners to achieve this look.  The key portion is to see a physician who is experienced in doing lips and show them photos of what you want to look like.  Good luck with your treatment.

These fillers, (Restylane, Juvederm) are good to create a symmetrical and full lip. The technique will be important here. In addition to fillers, using cannulas for the injections can help shape and contour the lip. Other options would be fat or implants. See an expert. Best, Dr. Emer
