JUVEDERM Lip filler in Austin, Texas with Sovay Reeder

So this was not an easy before and after case scenario. My patient was simply asking for fuller lips but while we were doing a consultation I noticed an imbalance in her smile as her mouth opened at a slant...it was asymmetric (see before photo). You didn't notice this asymmetry when she was not speaking and her lips were closed so I had to add filler that looked good at a resting state and, more important, addressed her smiling lip asymmetry. She had beautiful and symmetric teeth and bite and a beautiful face so I wanted to be very careful with the enhancements I made to ensure an even prettier, balanced smile and lips!

I started by addressing the muscles below her bottom lip and injected botox to one side only which would help the balance in her lower lip while smiling...so it would not appear crooked. The muscle responsible for this action on this particular patient was the Depressor Labii Inferioris muscle. Second, I injected JUVEDERM Ultra XC in her top and bottom lip - the wet/dry border - on the right side and left side leaving out the middle portion on both her bottom and top lip. As you can see in the "before" picture, her middle portion of her top and bottom lip already had more preexisting "pink" area showing. I wanted to accomplish her goal of getting fuller lips while also creating lovely balance and symmetry.

I'm scheduled to see this patient in a week to observe the area where I injected botox and to see if I want to finesse any of the lip filler. Giving the patient a week in between my first and second visit is ideal as the swelling subsides and I can make last minute decisions on achieving a close to perfect result for her:)

JUVEDERM Ultra XC filler for lips in Austin, Texas

Corrective Lip Filler with Medical Injector, Sovay Reeder.

This is a very exciting lip transformation! My client came to me with recently filled lips by another medical injector and she was still not where she wanted to be just yet. She made an appointment with me and we closely examined her lips prior to any lip filler and then what she had at the moment which was 1 syringe of JUVEDERM Ultra XC, again, with another injector. What I concluded was a few observations as observable in the "before" photo:

1) too much fullness in patient's bottom middle portion of lip

2) upper lip not full enough
3) both lips were too circular and not heart shaped enough...in other words, we needed to widen the lips from left to right and and some attractive curves to those lips!

Ok - so piece of cake, right? I decided to break up my visits with her into 2 separate visits so I could inject a little...wait a week...observe them...revisit and tweak them to perfection on visit #2. During visit #1, I only injected .3 mls of JUVEDERM Ultra XC and on the upper sides, lower sides wet/dry border and the vermillion top only...and again...not that much filler was used. When she returned for visit #2, her lips looked amazing and were already changing shape to a more heart shaped appearance and gorgeous curves on them. I used another .5 ml of JUVEDERM Ultra XC - all on the left and right sides again top and bottom - wet/dry border only to create more "pink" visibility in the lips- bottom and top lip. It's hard to describe how to inject lips because everyone's beauty perspective is so unique but, luckily, the patient and I had exactly the same taste!

Nasolabial fold filler, JUVEDERM Vollure, with medical injector, Sovay Reeder

Small and natural lip filler in Austin with Sovay Reeder, Medical Injector

My patient was a "filler virgin" meaning no filler had touched her face! I was beyond excited to take on the challenge. I could tell right away she wanted a very natural look so I went with JUVEDERM Vollure which I find is very malleable and easy to mold. Another great choice could have been Merz Belotero OR JUVEDERM Volbella OR Restalyne Silk due to it's low viscosity and G-Prime factor (translation - it's a super "thin" filler) but I went the JUVEDERM Vollure route instead this time. I injected .5 mls to her right and left oral commissures alone. Due to those pesky depressor anguli oris muscles which caused her lips to have a default frown, I injected 2 strong support columns on the right and left outer corner to turn her frown upside down...wave bye bye to those depressor muscles...bueno bye :) Ok - back to the lips...I injected a little there, too...the remaining .5 mls...but just a tiny bit. I didn't want to make her look too much different for fear this would not make her happy. I asked her permission to inject just a tiny bit in her top lip belly/middle of her top lips only...not the sides of her lips. I then injected a very small amount in her lower, middle vermillion to add a sharp distinction in her lip edge and create a lower middle dip to that bottom lip. So I feel the "after" photo looks very natural and just an enhanced and well hydrated lip aesthetic. My patient was happy and we had a fun experience creating that well rested, well hydrated smile :)
