Juvederm VOLBELLA lips in Austin, TX by Medical Injector, Sovay Reeder

So, let's break this down.  Let's begin with the top left and bottom left photo labeled, "Before"...if you look closely you will see that the top left side of her lip has less volume than her top right side.  This is her genetic baseline lip...nothing wrong with this...we are all slightly asymmetric, big deal.  What is a fun challenge, however, is to make these imbalances slightly more symmetric with filler, for instance.  It's not life changing, really...just results in a softer, slightly prettier aesthetic while still looking like your natural born genetics...which is what I'm trying to focus on here as a Medical Injector.

Going back to her I filled her top left lip (.4cc) to match the volume of her right side by injecting the majority of the filler in my syringe to that placement.  I actually put a tiny bit of filler in her top right (.1cc), as well...but just a tiny bit.  I placed a tiny bit (.1cc) of filler in her bottom lip right in the belly of the center to finish the look.  By the way, Juvederm Volbella only has .6cc volume total in 1 syringe as compared to many other fillers which typically come in 1cc volume.  This allows for Juvederm Volbella to be, relatively speaking, less expensive because you have less filler you are purchasing in the syringe.
Note:  1cc = 1mL       5mL = 1 teaspoon      3 teaspoons = 1 tablespoon

Also, it's important to note that Juvederm Volbella has a very gentle, low Viscosity/G prime factor. English...G prime refers to the rise/projection/firmness to the filler. Viscosity refers to the "spreadability" of the filler...I don't even think that's a word in this context but you get the idea.  Let me give you an example, toothpaste is more viscous than melted butter.  I think everyone has familiarity with both melted butter and toothpaste so that comparison helps, I hope!

I love low G prime/low Viscosity fillers for the "natural" look...they're a breeze to work with and easy to manipulate and predict.  On the flip side, a criticism of a low G prime/low viscosity filler (like Juvederm Volbella and Restylane Silk) would be that it doesn't make enough of a difference...which, depending on your taste, may be an accurate criticism.

Bottom line, beauty is in the eye of the beholder...and this patient, in particular, has a very conservative job,  has conservative taste, has a conservative mother giving her advice (which matters more than you know), doesn't wear a lot of makeup I think this filler, Juvederm Volbella, is a great choice.  I did recommend to her, however, we reevaluate her lips in another 3 months to determine if we need to add a little more filler or just let them remain slightly they are 1 syringe Juvederm Volbella filler.  Either way, I believe her post op pictures ("After") are more attractive than her pre op pictures ("Before") and she still looks like herself.  I am happy with this result and, most important, so is she!  Sovay Reeder, Medical Injector

Perfect Juvederm Lip filler in Austin,TX with Medical Injector, Sovay Reeder

We used a filler with a little more G prime/Viscosity on my patient's lips today. Her face, in particular, can handle a filler with a little more plumpness and her overall facial appearance is enhanced with larger (than average) lips. I don't feel this way about every patient's face but this patient, in particular, was a perfect recipient for Juvederm Ultra Plus XC. My patient also desired her upper lip to have just as much volume as her bottom lip. Normally, this balance is reversed and we encourage 2/3 volume on the bottom lip, and 1/3 volume on top lip but, again, this patient, looked amazing with upper lip volume so we went with it :) Medical Injector, Sovay Reeder

Before and After with Juvederm VOLBELLA for subtle hydration and volume enhancement

Subtle change in lips with 1 syringe of Volbella for a more hydrated look. Client desired more hydration in her upper lip specifically desiring smoother skin by using a subtle filler like Volbella. As for the patient's lower lip, I wanted to add volume to the right and left as she had plenty of volume in the immediate middle resulting in better left to right symmetry.

Juvederm Volbella for lips by medical injector, Sovay Reeder

This was a colleague of mine who wanted an extremely natural enhancement to her lips.  It always bothered her that her upper lip was slightly crooked.  She wanted to create more balance but did not want her lips to look much different at was important to her that no one notice she had her lips slightly altered.  I used 1 syringe of Juvederm Volbella applied to lips.  We created the perfect, natural pout for her and addressed the asymmetry!  Sovay Reeder, medical injector  (512) 586-7494

Best lip filler in Austin,Texas by medical injector, Sovay Reeder

There's a new FDA approved filler named Vollure from the Juvederm family.  It is absolutely amazing, silky, easy to manipulate, and natural.  We've had a lot of success using this product in lips due to it's malleable nature.  Here's a photo of my client I saw this Saturday at Aesthetica Med Spa ( who had some slight asymmetry in her upper lip (the arrow indicates the area where the upper lip actually goes upward and looks slimmer than the other side).  My client also wanted more than just a subtle, "hydrated" look...she wanted to see the difference but still keep it natural looking.  We used the majority of product in her lips and had a tiny bit left over which I used to apply towards the lateral creases left and right of her lips to discourage any future wrinkling in those areas.  ~Sovay Reeder, medical injector in Austin, Texas  (512) 586-7494
