Hello. As you can see my lips are very thin and I have always dreamed of wide and voluminous lips. Is it even possible to get the lip size as in the pictures? And if so , what methods would be used?

Lip Fillers for a Small Mouth

 
Hi and thank you for sharing your question! You do have beautiful lips and based on the pictures you posted, we can easily give them a decent boost in volume with injecting some fillers. However, to achieve the best aesthetic results, it needs to be done skillfully and slowly in steps. I usually do not inject more than 1 syringe of hyaluronic acid filler at a time and I would like to wait at least for 2 weeks following injection for it to fully settle and for all the swelling (if any) to completely go away, and then depending on the results and on the aesthetic goals compared with the initial size of the lips, additional amount of filler can be added. The suitable fillers for the lips are hyaluronic acid fillers and depending on the desired look whether you prefer short or long-lasting results, you can choose from Restylane, Juvederm Ultra/Ultra Plus, Volbella or Voluma. I hope it helps and good luck!
