If you are considering getting fillers to plump your lips, first, find out what our plastic surgery expert has to say.
He worries that people go too far and undergo too many injections which can lead to looking older than you actually are. He says overtime fillers can accumulate and migrate to other areas of the lip and can cause lip drooping and possibly even end up looking like a duck.
Dr. Talei says the top filler to avoid in the lips is Juvederm, which he says can migrate and even change the color of the lip. He explains this filler can be great for other areas of the body but says it is not meant to be used in the lips.
The procedure that Dr. Talei says is most effective is a modified upper lip lift, which avoids having the lip fighting against the nose and can create better balance in the face, still show the teeth, improve curvature, and improve lip volume and body. The plastic surgeon says this procedure (which only takes 45 minutes under local anesthesia and takes 3 weeks to appear "decent" and 3 months to look "perfect") can be done on a wide range of ages and on all ethnic backgrounds. He also notes the use of fillers is not needed after someone has this procedure.
