Do you look in the mirror and wish your lips were a little fuller and more defined? Are your lips uneven or aging, losing their plumpness over time? Many people, whether due to genetics, age, or personal preference, desire a more voluptuous lip shape.
The bottom lip filler is a targeted approach focused on augmenting just the bottom lip to create definition, shape, balance, and that coveted bee-stung appearance. Keep reading to learn all about what bottom lip filler is, how it works, and the many benefits and possibilities it provides for transforming your lips.
Bottom lip filler is a cosmetic injection treatment that uses a soft, gel-like dermal filler substance to add fullness and projection to the lower lip. Fillers add volume that plumps up the lip from the inside out. The results are immediately visible after treatment.
Unlike top lip procedures, bottom lip filler specifically targets the lower lip to create aesthetic balance and proportion between the upper and lower lips. The bottom lip is naturally somewhat fuller, so adding volume in this area can help define shape and create a beautiful pout.
The injected filler integrates into the lips’ natural tissues, attracting water molecules and instantly restoring volume. As a result, the bottom lip gains improved shape, definition and the appearance of a fuller, more youthful pout.
With precise injection techniques, fillers can target the bottom lip only, augmenting it separately from the top lip. This allows complete control and customization of your lip proportions and shape.

Absolutely! With today’s advanced dermal fillers, it’s possible to inject filler precisely into the bottom lip only. The top lip can remain unfilled and natural. Augmenting just the lower lip allows complete control and customization of its shape and projections
Reasons patients may choose bottom lip filler without enhancing the top lip include:
Bottom lip filler augments the part that protrudes, giving you that perfect pillowy lip look. It can also gently smooth out wrinkles like a smoker’s lines around the mouth.
While the top and bottom lips can both be enhanced with dermal fillers, there are a few differences in technique and results between the two areas.
The top lip is traditionally filled more subtly, as it is naturally thinner than the bottom lip. Overfilling the top lip tends to look unnatural. The bottom lip is usually augmented more for projection and pout, giving it that fuller, puckered appearance many patients want.
Filler in the top lip adds volume vertically, enhancing lip height. Filler in the bottom lip adds volume horizontally, increasing lip width. Too much filler in the top lip can result in a “duck lip” look. Too much in the bottom lip may look droopy or weighed down.
The bottom lip has well-defined natural borders perfect for subtle reshaping. The top lip’s cupid’s bow can be tricky to augment. For balanced lip fullness, a ratio of less filler in the top lip to more filler in the bottom lip is recommended.

Definitely! We can inject filler precisely into the middle pillowy part of your bottom lip while leaving the outer corners untouched for a customized look. This technique enhances the pout right in the center, giving that desirable bee-stung, protruding shape.
Adding volume just to the center part of the bottom lip allows for precise augmentation and control over the lip proportions. Filler is placed right along the bottom lip’s vermilion border, or where the lip meets the skin of the face, to subtly accentuate your natural shape.
This is an advanced technique that requires expertise and precision to achieve natural-looking results. Filler can be injected into the chin-lip junction, right below where the bottom lip meets the chin. This can subtly augment the chin area for better balance with the newly plumped lip.
Injecting filler below the bottom lip enhances the projecting upper portions of the chin, increasing definition. This creates a beautiful silhouette and profile. The injector will carefully place filler in the subcutaneous tissues below the bottom lip vermillion border. This avoids altering the actual lip shape.
Moderate amounts of filler are used for subtle augmentation in this delicate area, about 0.5-1mL per side. Too much filler could cause an unnaturally protruding chin. There may be some mild swelling, redness, or tenderness after injections below the bottom lip. This resolves within a few days.
Results from filler placement below the bottom lip can last from 6 months up to 2 years. Most patients see a noticeable improvement in chin projection and lower face balance.
The cost of bottom lip filler varies depending on how much filler you need and the provider you choose. On average, lip filler costs approximately $600-$800 per syringe. Since the bottom lip requires less filler than the top, most patients need just 1-2 syringes for the bottom lip. This puts the total cost around $600-$1600.
The specific cost for your treatment will depend on:
