Lip Filler Gone Wrong: What Now?

Close Up of Beautiful Lips

In today’s world, it is not difficult to find someone who offers dermal filler or facial injections for cosmetic improvement. Plastic surgeons are now joined by estheticians, nurses, dermatologists and even dentists who consider themselves qualified to offer facial injections. Dermal fillers can add volume to areas of the face that have been depleted with age. When it comes to “plumping” an area of the face to look more attractive, the lips get a lot of attention. Lip fillers can be an excellent way to boost your appearance without the downtime and recovery of plastic surgery. Filling the lips, however, must be done properly.

It is not uncommon to have patients dissatisfied with their lip filler results, especially if they relied on a provider who was under-skilled or not experienced with dermal injections. In such cases, patients may suffer from lips that look too big, unnatural or asymmetrical. “Duck lips” is a fear of many women who seek lip fillers for cosmetic correction. While there are fillers and injectors available to create natural and pleasing results, it can be horrific to discover that your lip filler went wrong. Since some of the latest fillers (like those from Juvederm) tout a 12-18 month sustainability, it is even more understandable when patients panic from a botched lip filler job.

Take a Deep Breath – There’s a Solution

If you have previously received a lip filler injection that produced an unwanted outcome, you aren’t stuck with it for the next 12 or more months. Fortunately, there is an injectable product called Hyaluronidase that can reverse your treatment. Even better, it works fast and doesn’t bring any side effects or required downtime. The only stipulation is that you must have had a filler product that was HA based (hyaluronic acid). The reversal injection using hyaluronidaise immediately goes to work to dissolve the filler product so that you can regain your normal lips in a timely manner. If you desire, you may choose to try a different filler or a different injector for a better outcome next time.

At Modern Aesthetica, we do our best to give patients a renewed sense of self-confidence and well-being through our menu of services. However, we never want patients to feel “stuck” with a lip filler result or remain regretful at who they chose to inject it. We are proud to offer a valued solution for those that want to reverse their duck lips, uneven volume or other unsightly results. While dermal fillers are only temporary, you don’t have to wait it out if you have regrets.

Dr. Danny keeps it real! With gratitude, I have decided to write this review. I got a few subtle services done with him and I have been really happy about it. I proudly say that I trust his insight and knowledge. He truly is a talented physician and works from his heart. I am fortunate to have found this place. Thank you Modern Aesthetica!

Audra L.

I was referred to Dr. Dan via a couple clients/friends. I went in there not really knowing what to expect...but I needed help filling in some lines without actual filler. He's honest and even told me I DIDN'T need things I though I might. When I say instant results...I mean it. Shocking! He's professional, courteous and straight to the point. It's been 3 days and I can't stop staring at my face...very well knowing the results I already see will be even better in 2 weeks. Amazing. Referring everyone I know!

Michael D.

Dr. Daniel has helped me with my fitness journey so much! He is a truly caring physician and was available for me every step of the way. A lot of weight loss and fitness doctors use the same template, but I KNOW he treats every patient specifically, and adjusts the regimen to tailor it to my needs.

David P.

I went to go see Dr. Danny recently and he treated with kit gloves. I couldn't be happier. He's a phenomenal doctor and what a beautiful facility.

Kayvan M.

I was referred to Dr. Danny by a friend who got great results with his fitness regimen. I had hit a plateau in terms of my results so that’s why I first went to Modern. I didn’t know what to expect but I was amazed at everything Dr. Danny shared with me. He gave me some great advice on a medicine based fitness regiment and customized something just for me. Loving the results. Thank you!

I had a Vampire Facial here and the results were amazing. Dr. Danny made sure I looked great for my best friend's party 1 week after. Finding a great doctor in Los Angeles can be tough but I think I found a solid one here! If you want to look your VERY best, I highly recommend Dr. Danny and the entire staff at Modern Aesthetica!
