Do you ever catch yourself staring longingly at someone with a beautiful, full top lip? Do you wish you could go from a thin, uneven pucker to a gorgeous, plump pout? More and more women are seeking lip filler to enhance their top lip specifically.
At Ethos Aesthetics & Wellness, Dr. Soni specializes in creating natural, beautiful lip augmentation using dermal fillers.
With his artistic eye and advanced injection techniques, you can finally achieve your dream lips by focusing treatments only on your upper lip area.
The top lip plays an important role in framing facial features and influencing perceptions of attractiveness. A full, well-defined upper lip balances out the lower lip and adds symmetry to the mouth. It also draws attention upwards to the smile, eyes and midface.
Conversely, a thin or aging top lip can create imbalanced facial proportions, directing focus downwards to a sagging chin or jowls. Augmenting just the top lip is an effective, minimally invasive way to create more aesthetic facial proportions and a refreshed, youthful look.
Lip fillers can help add volume specifically to the top lip to provide definition and balance out a thinning upper lip. Strategic injection techniques allow providers to target filler placement in the upper lip area. This creates a fuller, more youthful upper lip contour to complement the lower lip.
Hyaluronic acid fillers work by absorbing water and expanding under the skin, plumping up the lips. The effects are temporary but long-lasting – typically 6 months to 1 year before repeat injections are needed.
Getting filler in just the top lip is a popular option for enhancing lips gradually. Many patients prefer to start with the upper lip only, as this creates a balanced, natural look.
Focusing on the top lip gives you a subtle improvement. Then, you can always opt to add more filler to the bottom later on if you wish.
You may choose to augment just the top lip if:
No matter your reasons for picking top lip filler, you’re not alone. More and more patients recognize that targeting one lip allows for a customizable, natural enhancement.

Some of the benefits of getting lip filler just in your top lip include:
The main difference between top and lower lip filler comes down to placement.
Top lip filler involves injecting dermal filler precisely into the upper lip area. This can include the upper lip skin, lip line, Cupid’s bow and philtrum (the dip under your nose).
Augmenting the top lip helps:
|Add fullness and definition to a thinning upper lip
|Smooth out vertical lip lines around the top lip
|Create a subtle lip lift effect by enhancing Cupid’s bow
|Draw attention upwards from a small chin or sagging jawline
Lower lip filler focuses on enhancing the bottom lip specifically. This is done by injecting filler along the lower lip border and into the body of the lip.
Reasons for lower lip filler include:
|Increasing “poutiness” of the bottom lip
|Balancing out the proportions of thin top lip and fuller lower lip
|Defining a blurred lip line along the lower border
|Creating the appearance of a lower face lift by focusing attention on the fuller lower lip
The type and amount of filler used will depend on which lip you are treating and the look you want to achieve.
