Can You Change Your Lip Shape With Fillers?

Updated: Jul 4, 2023

When it comes to injectables, there are lots of questions and misinformation that circulate in the online space. As for lip injections, that statement is no exception. One frequently asked question that we see about lip fillers and lip filler shapes is whether or not you can truly change the shape of someone’s lips with filler. Let’s break down the facts.

Changing lip shape

The short answer to whether or not a lip shape can be changed is both yes and no. However, as per any service or treatment that is done on an individual, results will vary from person to person and it is important to see an injector that both knows and respects the limits of your particular lip shape.

How is it done?

Changing your lip shape depends entirely on the natural shape of your lip. If your lips allow for an alteration to the shape, it is important to know that it is not an instant process. Shape change will occur in small increments over a significant amount of time. Creating changes to your lip shape is a long-term investment that requires patience and maintenance, not a one-time appointment. In some cases, lips can only be enhanced in alignment with their natural shape.

It is also important to note that sometimes it takes more than just filler to change the lip shape. In some cases, a lip flip with Botox or another neurotoxin is a great help in achieving your desired lip shape.

Popular lip shapes

M-shaped lips are a great example of a lip shape that requires time and consistency to properly augment. If it is determined that you have lips that can be enhanced outside of their natural shape, remember that it will be done at a safe pace to ensure optimum results with no filler migration or overfilling. Some popular lip shapes may include heart-shaped lips and keyhole lips. Always be honest about your desired outcome with your injector and remain open to their professional expertise and advisement about how close you can get to the results you wish for.


The correction of asymmetry is one type of lip shape change that most individuals are eligible for. This type of service generally has less to do with altering the lip structure and more to do with filling in areas that need enhancement to match the other side. This is a popular, and successful, reason that many people get lip filler.
