Bigger is not always better! We have all seen those unfortunate, overfilled lips that look completely unnatural and frankly, unappealing. There are a lot of factors for your injector to consider, but mainly, you want your lips to feel in-proportion to the rest of your features. Keep in mind, lip injections will not dramatically change the general shape of your lips (for the most part) – they will enhance your natural shape.
The doctors at our clinic are trained to understand the ideal balance of the facial features, and can help “design” a lip shape and volume that will look the best on each individual face.
Volume loss in other areas can affect the way the lips appear (especially the chin). This can affect how you see the lips and the balance between the lower lip and the upper lip. Sometimes, a little filler to the chin, jawline, or nasal-labial lines can improve the look and proportion of the lips without changing them at all! This is why we recommend selecting an injector that has the training and experience to give you the absolute best results, which may not always be the most obvious to the untrained eye.
Lip injections don’t always have to look like Kylie Jenner’s (but they can!). This means that you don’t have to be in your 20’s to get lip injections. If you are in your 30’s, 40’s, 50’s, or 60’s, the focus of lip injections will be different than if you are in your 20’s.
The important piece here is balance.
When you are in your 20’s or 30’s, adding projection, definition, and volume to your pout is the most common goal. However, making sure the size of your lips is harmonious to the rest of your features is essential. Your injector should help you decide what the most ideal approach for dermal fillers is for your face.
