ASK DR NOVOA – I wanted to get filler in my lips to make them look sexier. I am worried though, since I see so many movie stars with clown lips after getting filler. What is the story?

Most absorbable fillers such as Juvederm and Restylane work great when injected into lips. Although a little scary and a bit painful, most now come with lidocaine to numb the lips while the procedure is being done.

The amount of filler injected into the lips will vary between person to person. However, this amount is entirely dependent on the patient since it is done one area at a time and the patient is able to view the procedure.

So if you have ever thought of getting fillers, it does not have to end up making you look fake and it can significantly enhance the look of your lips.

The cost varies but averages about $650 per treatment. Each treatment lasts between 3-6 months.

So, if you are afraid of clowns, avoid going to Hollywood or the Circus. 🙂
