Top 3 Lip Filler Mistakes

Across the cosmetic industry, fillers have been a hot topic for tweaking everything from fine lines in the forehead to plumper lips. While fillers are available at practically every corner, note that the most reputable providers will hesitate if your request for a filler is unsafe or unrealistic.

At Robinson Facial Plastic Surgery, our team aims to provide not only exceptional service but exceptional treatments that promote your best self. A naturally beautiful look is always in style, so here are a few requests we’ll say no to (for your own good!):

  1. Enlarging overly filled lips

While oversize lips may be the trademark look on Instagram, it is a fine line between enhancement of your natural shape and looking overdone. An overfilled pout can cause removal of the lip’s natural curvatures and a stretched-smooth surface. This can make it difficult for injectors to navigate the natural anatomy of lips. LEARN MORE

2. Mimicking lips after inspiration photos

In today’s world, enhanced images on social media are a leading cause of wanting a look that is unrealistic. While Instagram fads such as “devil lips” may fuel inspiration, these shapes are difficult to achieve with filler alone. Just as everyone’s skin is different, everyone’s lips are different, and some inspirational looks cannot be mimicked on everyone. Plus, pushing lips beyond their normal capacity is never a good idea because if lips receive more filler than they can handle, the filler can migrate above the lips, or leave lips feeling firm and lumpy.

3. Augmenting lips when a patient doesn’t take care of their face

Even the most perfect lips can appear out of place if the rest of one’s skin isn’t maintained properly. The result? An awkward, imbalanced look. To avoid a misshapen look, the facial foundation needs re-contoured with fillers – such as restoring sunken cheeks or dropping eye skin – along with enhancing the lips.

At Robinson Facial Plastic Surgery, creating a naturally beautiful look you love is our top priority. Our suite of lip fillers including Restylane®, Restylane® Kysse, Restylane® Refyne, Restylane® Defyne, Restylane® Silk, Juvederm®, Juvederm® Volbella, and Juvederm® Vollure will provide amazing results, but it’s important to know that not every filler or request is suitable for your unique face.
