Kylie Jenner’s lips have been one of the most requested features by patients in recent years. Lip fillers can be used to increase volume in the lip area to improve thin lips or any asymmetry between the top and bottom lips. Dermal fillers are often used in the lips to increase volume for patients experiencing thin lips due to aging effects. Although her lips became her defining feature, Kylie Jenner recently stated that she got rid of the fillers. The hyaluronic acid based fillers typically dissolve between 4 and 6 months. The body naturally metabolizes the hyaluronic acid, which is the safest and most common way to dissolve the filler. Another way to dissolve dermal fillers is with hyaluronidase injections, which consists of the enzyme that dissolves hyaluronic acid. This option is more immediate, and works to dissolve the fillers within just a couple of days. Although this option is a quicker approach, there are some risks such as an allergic reaction or a result of the lips being thinner than they originally were.

Many patients wish to dissolve their lip fillers because they look botched and have lumps, are too big, or they want to return to their natural lip size. Whether someone wishes to get lip fillers or dissolve their current ones, it is important to see an experienced plastic surgeon to ensure the best possible results in the safest way. Dr. Kassir is experienced in correcting poor lip fillers by using hyaluronidase to dissolve the current lip fillers. After a few days, the patient comes back, and Dr. Kassir then re-injects the patient with the hyaluronic acid lip fillers to achieve natural, voluminous results.

Although lip fillers can be performed in under 20 minutes, it is still a precise procedure that can produce poor results under an unexperienced provider. Botched lip fillers can cause asymmetry, bumps, or lips that are overfilled. Dr. Kassir is a triple board certified plastic surgeon that has been in practice since 1997.
