Too much lip filler

Influencers such as Kylie Jenner and the remainder of her famous family have helped to make the use of facial fillers increasingly common. The more we're bombarded with photographs of absolutely plumped pouts on social media, the more people wonder: Why is there such a thing as too much? If this is the case, what does that mean?

"Putting too much filler in the face to try and compensate for the aging process, which tends to happen, starts to make folks not seem like themselves anymore," Jacono said. "I see patients who have been performing fillers for five to 10 decades and they're coming to me for a remedy, since they have done all the injectables and lots of lasers, and today they have spent tens of thousands of dollars along with the effects of the remedies are not working for them anymore."

"There is no way to get around it," he said. "And you have to be careful. Since in the event that you push it too much, you are extending them way too much, you are almost guaranteeing a more invasive treatment at a younger age."

If this happens, she said, some folks will then have filler injected to the bottom half of the face in an effort to balance out everything.

Finally, she said, the pocket becomes so expanded that "the volume of filler necessary to hold up and match that pocket gets so much that it tips the balance of the face so you have a very large cheek region and by comparison, the chin region and jawline look small."
"As you continue to age and depending upon your genetics, you might be predisposed to loose skin and regions where there is a lot of hanging. And it is not accurate, though it's a perpetuated myth which filler in the cheek can lift skin at the lower part of their face. It's just not possible."


When it comes to lips, even if you do not add more filler to inflate the space, you may be left with droopy, wrinkly or even misshapen lips that may require surgery to fix, Yagoda mentioned.


"When you [eliminate] of the big lip, it's like [later] giving birth. You dissolve the filler away and there is all this extra skin and I have to cut it away. It is a fairly big process and takes approximately two weeks to recuperate."


If you are looking to get fillers, particularly in the lips or cheeks, Yagoda proposed reading on the various types of fillers on the market to educate yourself and recommended getting different feedback from doctors.

While fillers might be an excellent alternative for some people, they may not be the most appropriate for others.
Fillers can also migrate after they have been injected, and you could end up with a top lip that looks like what Yagoda described as "two saggy boobs," in which the faces of the lips hang down.
"Filler at the cheek is very good for someone who has a flat midface or somebody who does not have very considerable cheekbones," Yagoda said, adding that placing filler in somebody whose cheekbones are already characterized pretty much just stretches out the underlying tissues.
"When the fillers move in, they do not really support the face, they weigh down the face," he said. "[Individuals] begin to look a bit simian or monkey-like, since there's too much filler which gravitates toward the mouth ... it kind of droops down from the top part of the cheek"
"It is vital," she said. "I wouldn't want to make conclusions without being educated as I could be."
But sometimes, as Yagoda mentioned, surgery is the ideal way to go.

Both doctors agreed that the length of time a person can use filler and determine the results they want is different for each patient.
"What people attempt to do, since they don't get the identical effect from one or two vials of filler, is that they attempt to fill out the face so that the sagging is lifted, but the face appears wider," Jacono said, adding that people may begin to look "twisted"
Basically, as time passes, filler stretches and weighs down the skin, which usually means you need more filler with every trip to the doctor, which will only extend the skin and tissue even more.
It may happen with additives on the rest of the face, too. No B.S. Just a completely essential daily guide to attaining the fantastic life.


Both Yagoda and Jacono noted that "filler fatigue" also commonly happens when people use too much filler in their own cheek areas.

 

Over prolonged periods of time, fillers may actually stretch out the cells under the skin, essentially accelerating the aging process "because those tissues aren't likely to bounce back the same manner as you become old," Park Avenue cosmetic plastic surgeon Andrew Jacono explained to HuffPost.
The younger you're, the firmer and more elastic skin generally is, Yagoda noted, which means you may be able to use filler a little longer.

 

 

More filler isn't necessarily the best choice.
Here's what you need to know before getting fillers yourself.
Overuse of carcinogens can have serious repercussions.
"Every time you put more filler inside, the pocket grows and it turns into a larger pocket, so it needs an increasing number of filler to keep it enlarged," Yagoda clarified.
As fillers can move when they are injected into the lips, they're also able to gravitate when injected to the cheeks and weigh the face down.

Based on Jacono, some people might even have the ability to get eight to 10 years from fillers on a case-by-case basis, but he noted that regardless of what, you'll be stretching the cells.
"I think that it's a major mistake to inject into the pink portion of the lip because the lip is a muscle, and the filler has moved around and may clump and bulge and deform the lip and will pretty much require a surgery to eliminate it if you get it done more than once or twice," she explained.
Total, ultra-plumped lips are one beauty trend that just won't stop.


Just how long can somebody use filler and still see desired results?
As an example, there is an injectable enzyme called hyaluronidase, which can dissolve hyaluronic fillers such as Restylane or even Juvederm.
She will, but inject in which the pink part of the lip matches the skin.

As Yagoda said, "Filler isn't the answer to everything."
