Which Filler Works Best for Plumper Lips?

Being unhappy with any aspect of your appearance or body negatively affects your self-esteem, especially regarding facial features. Your lips are one of the aspects of your appearance you don't have much control over – until now.

If you desire plumper, fuller-appearing lips, you have a few options that can help. One of the most popular options for fuller lips is fillers.

At Meridian Plastic Surgery, Dr. Mark S. Elliott and Dr. Lee K. Thornton offer various cosmetic procedures, including fillers, to enhance your lips and other facial features.

What are fillers?

Dermal fillers are injectable products that add volume and restore a full look to your face and facial features. As we age, it's common to have sagging skin or a sunken-in appearance, where dermal fillers can help.

One of the places you can get fillers is on your lips. Some people are born with thin lips, while others may notice a decrease in lip fullness as they age.

Lip fillers usually consist of hyaluronic acid, a natural substance within the body. The benefit of hyaluronic acid is that it attracts water, which helps to plump the lips naturally while providing a dramatic change.

Hyaluronic acid and other dermal fillers aren't a permanent fix for thin lips. However, they provide months of a plumper appearance, requiring repeat injections for lasting results.

Who benefits from lip fillers?

Getting lip fillers is a personal choice you have to come to when you're not happy with the appearance of your lips. However, lip fillers are safer and have fewer side effects than surgical lip augmentation.

You may want to have fuller lips for your confidence or to restore the shape of your lips as you age. Lip fillers can benefit you if you wish to:

You should be in good health to have lip fillers and shouldn't have an active infection in or around your mouth. 

Before getting lip fillers, discuss your expectations with Dr. Thornton and Dr. Elliott. Realistic expectations are the key to happiness regarding injectable lip fillers.

The best filler for full lips

When choosing a lip filler, you have a few options. Meridian Plastic Surgery offers several lip fillers, including Juvederm Ultra XC® and Juvederm Volbella XC® – but how do you choose?

Each type of filler has specific goals it achieves, and plumper lips are one of them. All of our options contain hyaluronic acid and are FDA-approved for lip enhancement. If that's one of your must-haves, you can choose any of our products for fuller lips.

Juvederm Volbella XC also provides a plump appearance to the lips while correcting "lipstick lines" or lines around the lips and mouth. It's also a gel form of hyaluronic acid that provides temporary results.

Juvederm Ultra XC is an excellent option to add volume to your lips. It can also address lipstick lines, but its main focus is lip augmentation.

Any of these products temporarily enhance your lips, with a few adding in the bonus of reducing fine lines around the mouth. Juvederm Ultra XC may be the best choice if you're looking for fuller lips.

However, Dr. Elliott and Dr. Thornton discuss your expectations and goals before deciding on one specific lip filler.
