Is it possible to change the shape of our upper lip slightly with fillers? The left side of my lip is more elevated and I’d like to not okay even it out but round it more. Also is botox better for wrinkles or fillers? I’m 27 years old btw Thanks Drs!

Changing the Shape of Upper Lip

 
Hi and thank you for sharing your question! The short answer is yes. We have several hyaluronic acid fillers available that can be used to reshape the lips and make them better defined. In your case since you are considering more subtle changes, it is very important to consult a physician with great experience and skills in doing lip injections as you do not want to “over-treat” the area. The good thing about hyaluronic acid fillers is that they are quite forgiving if you are not completely happy with the end results and further revisions and adjustments can be done easily. I hope it helps and good luck!
