Lip Fillers Before and After with Dr Wade Merchant

Dr Wade believes that lips should always look natural – and these lip fillers before and after photos are a testament to that. Not only is every patient completely unique, but each lip filler treatment is completely unique. As we age, volume changes occur. A younger person can not be treated in the same manner as an older person – and vice versa.

As seen above, this younger patient was able to get a volumised appearance with just a single syringe of filler. That is because her foundations were still good – Dr Wade just had to deal with the layout and design of her lips (if we were to continue with the construction metaphor).

As you can see with this more mature patient, a volumised appearance was not possible with only one syringe of filler. Dr Wade focused on her lip border and mouth corners  – so essentially he did “renovations” on the foundations of her lips. She was very happy withe the result as her smokers lines improved and she looked less tired. That said, if she wished to have more volume she would require an additional syringe at a later day.

As you can see – not only are different age groups treated differently, but the results that can be expected are also different. At the end of the day, all that Dr Wade wants for his patients are natural results that make them look and feel better.
