What Filler is Best for Lips?

Everyone wants a pair of kissable, soft lips. However, whether it’s due to age or genetics, your lips may not look how you want them to look. Fortunately, you have options. You can get lip fillers to plump up your lips and enhance your smile. Continue reading to learn more about lip fillers that are used in lip augmentation procedures.

Soft-Tissue Fillers

There are several soft-tissue fillers. The most commonly used soft-tissue filler consists of hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid helps your cells produce collagen. Collagen smooths, firms, and plumps your lips for a natural, beautiful look. Soft-tissue fillers can last up to one year.

Juvederm® Ultra

The Juvederm® Ultra lip filler is a natural choice if you have very fine, receding lips. Not only does this filler increase your lip size, it smooths away the vertical lines that often appear above and along thin lips. The addition of smoother lips will also serve to make your lips appear more youthful and supple. Best of all, you won’t need a second injection for up to one year after your initial lip augmentation.

Juvederm® Volbella

Do you want to change the shape of your lips or improve their definition? Volbella is an excellent filler if you want to give your lips a cupid’s bow and more volume. In addition to creating a desirable cupid’s bow, Volbella can erase “smoker’s lines,” further enhancing the overall appearance of your mouth. This filler will also last up to one year before you need a second injection. 

Restylane® Refyne

If you’re unhappy with your nasolabial folds or find your “marionette lines” to be too pronounced, then you may prefer Refyne. Refyne softens the appearance of protruding nasolabial folds and deep marionette lines to erase years off your face and increase your lips’ volume. Refyne does more than plump your lips; this lip filler adds structural support to your lips as well. It can last for several months.

How Can You Achieve Natural-Looking Results With Injectables


Injectables offer a quick, non-surgical solution for facial rejuvenation, enabling our physicians to produce subtle and natural-looking results. Subtle does not, however, suggest unnoticeable. In fact, when performed by an experienced and board-certified anti-aging and cosmetic physician like Dr. Swapna Gopathi, injectables can produce a remarkably more youthful and attractive appearance without making the patient look “overdone” or unnatural.

Different Injectables for Every Need

At Body by Ravi Plastic Surgery & Aesthetics, we offer a range of cosmetic injectables, allowing us to meet the specific needs of each individual. Some of our most popular dermal fillers include:

  • Juvéderm®. We offer several fillers from the Juvéderm® family, including Ultra and Ultra Plus, Vollure, and Voluma. These fillers can be used to address skin laxity, eliminate fine lines and deep wrinkles, and add volume to sunken areas such as the cheeks. We also offer Juvéderm Volbella XC®, a filler that can address smokers lines and restore shape and symmetry to the lips
  • Restylane®. We offer Restylane® Defyne, Contour, and Lyft to help improve the contours of the low face, eliminate creases and wrinkles from various areas, and address age-related volume loss in the cheeks. Defyne can also be used to enhance the appearance of the lips
  • Sculptra® Aesthetic. This unique dermal filler can be used to naturally increase your own collagen production to create a lifted and contoured jawline and to restore volume to several areas of the face, including the temples, underneath the eyes, and the cheeks – all of which commonly experience volume loss as we age
  • BOTOX® Cosmetic. The most popular nonsurgical facial rejuvenation treatment, BOTOX® Cosmetic can eliminate crow’s feet, smooth frown lines, and reduce other dynamic wrinkles. BOTOX® is not a dermal filler, but can be used alone or in combination with fillers to produce a naturally youthful appearance
