When the filler from a lip augmentation disappears, your lips will look no worse. They will look the same as they did before the injections. When having a lip augmentation with filler, I would recommend seeking the advice of a board-certified plastic surgeon, facial plastic surgeon, or dermatologist. If you are left with loose lips as a result of regular overinflation, the only remedy is lip reduction surgery, that is, trimming excess skin, which can leave significant scars.
Some find that their lips return to normal after a few months, while others don't need another injection for more than a full year. For people who pull or bend their upper lip into their mouth during smiles, lip fillers can't help. A surgical lip augmentation is great if you've been injected before and you're ready for a permanent change. After another doctor recommended that she have injections in her lips every four months, this patient visited Grossman for her quarterly replacement.
Unfortunately, it's not possible to make injectable lip fillings last longer once you've received them. Some patients with overfilling of the lips experience tooth disappearance, in which the lips have become so thick that the teeth are completely hidden even while smiling. To make a truly significant change in your smile, ask your doctor to inject the lip filler into the parenthesis lines on both sides of your mouth.
