Will my lips be too big after injection?
Blog post November 13th, 2018 by Dr. Ryan Greene
Lip filler is not always about getting bigger lips. Often times, a patient's goal is to improve lip definition and shape without drastically changing the size of their lips. This creates a beautiful lip enhancement while maintaining a very natural look.
Lip Correction Case Study?

This patient came to me after being injected by a local practitioner in Miami. She was unhappy with the results as her lips were left with many lips and an unnatural shape. Her upper lips was also over injected, which creates poor balance between the lips. I performed two sessions of an enzyme treatment to dissolve the improperly placed product and then reinjected filler to improve the shape and balance of her lips.
When Should I Get BOTOX?

I get asked this question on a daily basis. In my opinion, there is no “rule” when it comes to the right age to start Botox because it varies per person. What I usually recommend is to start treatment when you develop static lines (wrinkles at rest) after making movements such as squinting or raising your brows.
Patients often ask me - Do you use a blunt cannula for the tear trough?
Blog Post October 8th, 2018 - by Dr. Ryan Greene
I answer that I have always used a needle instead, for multiple reasons. In my opinion, the needle technique is more precise, as I am always in the correct plane, and I know exactly where I’m placing the filler. With a cannula, the filler is often placed in an incorrect plane (too superficial and not deep enough). In my practice, I often see patients treated elsewhere who had filler placed incorrectly using a cannula; this can create puffy, lumpy filler below the tear trough.
Why Choose an Experienced Injector for Facial Fillers?

Most injectors rush their injections, and don’t utilize a safe technique that avoids intravascular injection. Just remember: These are medical treatments, and there are real risks that can be avoided by an injector with an intimate knowledge of facial anatomy and careful technique.
