Miami Volbella XC: What is Your Lip Shape?

When it comes to plumping your pout with injectable fillers, the shape of your lips needs to be taken into consideration. Trust the expertise of Top Miami Cosmetic Dermatologist Dr. Oscar Hevia to achieve beautiful lips.

No matter your lip shape, Try: Juvéderm VOLBELLA XC with Lidocaine, the newest injectable filler to be approved in the U.S specifically formulated for use in the lips. This filler is proven to increase lip fullness and soften the appearance of vertical lines for up to 1 year. The hyaluronic acid in this filler has been specially bonded using VYCROSS technology to give lips a look that is soft and natural.

What is Your Lip Shape? There are 5 types of common lip shapes. (Heart, Ellipsis, Ribbon, Bow, & Apple). Find out what is your lip shape below.



The Heart

Heart shaped lips are highlight contoured, have a defined Cupid’s bow, and are fairly plump to begin with. Any wrinkles above the lip line can be filled without changing  lip size or shape.


The Ellipsis

These even, thick and pronounced lips already have great volume. Filling them too much can actually make their shape disappear.


The Ribbon

The ribbon shape is characterized by thinness, very little contouring, and a slightly fuller upper lip. This small and thin mouth shape can easily run the risk of looking very fake if fillers are used too liberally.

The Bow

The bow is also a difficult shape to work with. It’s smooth, long and looks almost stretched in appearance. The bottom lips tends to have more volume that the top.

The Apple

These round, narrow lips have a soft Cupid’s bow and good volume to begin with.
