Is there a limit to how much filler can be injected into lips? I received 1ml of Volbella today, but it’s too subtle.

A patient asked 3 years ago
Having always been disappointed with my extremely thin lips, I received 1ml of Juvederm Volbella today. The results are a good start, however subtle. I would like to achieve a medium-sized pout – nothing extreme but my injector said come back and we’ll see how much space you have left…(for another 1ml) so is there an upper ceiling to how much can be injected if you start off v thin? I am not looking for Kylie Jenner-style results but am worried I will be stuck forever with thin lips!

Limit on Amount of Filler Injected into Lips

 
Hi and thank you for your question! Given the size of lips and anatomical constrains and to achieve aesthetically pleasing results, the amount of fillers injected into lips is often more limited compared with other areas. There is really no harm in pursuing a conservative approach when it comes to lip fillers, so if you are not fully satisfied with the results, it would be best to wait for 2 weeks following your injection for all the swellings (if any) to fully subside and go back to your physician for a follow up to determine if more filler is needed. I hope it helps and good luck!
