Plastic Surgeon Dr. Dean Kane of Baltimore Answers Question Regarding Lip Wrinkles and Shapes with Fillers and Botox

Center for Cosmetic Surgery & Medspa Patient

Q. Can Botox lift my upper lip? Is silicone dangerous for the lip injections? Can they cause Cancer? Are there any knew implants coming out?

Botox and Dysport when used in minute amounts at the proper depth and muscle sites of the upper lip can provide an upper lip curl and edge without the use of filler. 

Filler on the other hand is useful to fill, firm and spread lines of the lip. There are quite a few available and depending on their use have better improvement for:

  1. ​general volumizing or specific uses such as:
  2. lip lines, 
  3. vermillion lines, 
  4. philtral lines, 
  5. white line, 
  6. corners, 
  7. projection and other very specialized techniques. 

Please consult with a very advanced and skilled Board Certified Plastic Surgery injector who understands the anatomy, injection techniques and assets versus the limitations of each filler and muscle relaxer. ​Silicone, by the way is rarely used and should be questioned if offered. 

I hope this is helpful. All the best!
