I was wanting to know. Is it common for people to get a tiny amount of filler in the lips? If they have volume already but would just like to enhance a area?
Yes, we can inject tiny amounts just for lip shaping rather than volume enhancement.
Filler can placed in the vermillion (red part), around the lips for support, in the lip philtrum (columns between nose and lip), lower lip (to create a central fullness or dumbell shape), and different parts of the upper lip.
