Lip Filler Wearing Off Too Soon

 
Hi and thank you for your question! I am not sure if the picture you posted is for right after the treatment or after you felt it was worn off, and it is impossible to make a call without seeing your before/baseline pictures, but just looking at the picture, the volume seems to be good. During the first few days following the lip injections, it is very common to have swelling which shows as extra volume and as the swelling goes down, some patients might feel that their filler has gone away, even though it is mainly the swelling that has gone down. Accurate comparison of pictures taken before the procedure and current ones will usually show the improvements. In general for lips, Voluma is the longest lasting filler and if you have concerns with fillers not lasting long, you can try Voluma next time. I hope it helps and good luck!
