Juvederm lip filler moustache/shadow? I can’t tell if it’s the filler itself or the shadow that it’s casting?

A patient asked 3 years ago
I got my lips injected 3 times w/ juvederm ultra. Naturally I have very thin lips, my top lip was down turned. My issue is the shadow effect or fullness above my top lip. I did not have my vermillion border injected & was advised it may give me a ducky look. I don’t understand why some patients get this “mustache effect” & some can achieve huge lips without affecting the area above the lip. Why does the border of my top lip look puffed out? I went to a highly rated Black Diamond injector.

Hi and thank you for your question! Lip injection requires great skill for most natural looking results, and although your injector seems to be highly experienced it is still no guarantee. This being said, you didn’t mention one key piece of info – the timeline of injection: If the injection was done less than 2 weeks ago, you still need to wait to make sure what you are seeing is not swelling. If it’s past the 2 week period, then you can do a follow up with your injection and the filler can be revised and adjusted if needed. I hope it helps and good luck!
