Will Injectable Filler Make My Lips Meet?

Q: Dr. Eppley, My lower lip is slightly behind my upper lip maybe 2mm, I’ve had double jaw surgery in the past and it’s definitely better than it was, but it still bugs me and I find myself biting my lips a lot because of it. I know the only way too truly fix that is with a BSSO which I will get again in the future to fully correct it. In the meantime though I’m curious would filler be able too push it out a bit too meet the upper lip? 

A: I would think it would as that is how injectable filler works…volumetric expansion of the injected tissues.
