Juvederm and Lips
Juvederm is a great filler for the lips and generally lasts about one year. I am confused as to why it would disappear so quickly with you. I would recommend returning to your treating physician for evaluation and perhaps you need additional filler. Best, Dr. Green

Juvederm for the lips
Thanks for the question. Juvederm ultra or ultra plus can be used for the lips, and which one depends on what you are trying to do. The enhancements should be done with ultra, if you are looking for longer lasting volume to the lips then Ultra Plus might be a better option for the lip volume itself. I think your lips look great at 4 weeks. Your lips look swollen and too ducky in the immediate and 4 day after pictures. I would advise on not putting any more fillers in your lips or you will look unnatural.

Lip filler - vanished in weeks
- The fullness you had in the first 2 weeks is from swelling, not filler.
- Your 2 week result looks very pretty - but without before photos, one can't say what difference there is.
- The only way to know what is going on is to compare before photos with photos taken 2 weeks after your last filler.
- If you had 3.5 cc of filler, you should have very full lips.
- If not, you would seem to be rapidly breaking down hyaluronic acid and lip implants may be the only solution.

More volume desired for lips.,
I had 1ml of Juvederm to even out lips & increase the size. A week later, and the filler has almost gone. What can I do?
First off, your lips look great at two weeks. They have a great shape and proportion. I would be very wary about adding more volume which could create an overdone look. However, if you want more volume, there are other fillers that can create more volume. These are generally not used in the lips because of their thickness, but they can be. I never recommend permanent lip injections because what looks good now may not look good in 20 years with the natural volume changes that take place in the face.
I'd recommend you continue to follow up with several physician injectors to see what options exist for you.
I hope this helps and good luck.
