How can I fix my lips after braces? They’re turned in and small

Cosmetic Treatments QuestionsCategory: Lip AugmentationHow can I fix my lips after braces? They’re turned in and small
A patient asked 3 years ago
Hello! I had braces five years ago and four teeth extracted. When they came off I was devastated by the results. I have straight teeth but my smile shrunk, my lips shrunk, and I have a very flat appearance. My lips are very thin now and the upper seems to almost turn in. I’m not really into the ideal of injections because of how I’ve read things like Juvaderm are made. I would prefer suggestions for a long term solution if there are any ideas. Thank you so much for your insight.

Fixing Lips after Braces

 
Hi and thank you for sharing your question! I am not sure what you have read that made you unwilling to try a filler such as Juvederm, but for adding volume to the lips, there really isn’t any option as easy and safe as injection of hyaluronic acid fillers such as Juvederm, Voluma, Volbellla or Restylane Lyft. All these products are based on hyaluronic acid which is a gel that naturally is present in our skin and when done at skilled and experienced hands, the results can be very impressive. I highly recommend that you consult an experienced cosmetic doctor and discuss your concerns regarding fillers and hopefully all your concerns will be addressed. I hope it helps and good luck!
