According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, lip augmentation procedures are fast becoming one of the most popular facial procedure in the United States. The growth of social media probably has a lot to do with this, with lips being a prominent feature of the face in the selfies. Lips go a long way in defining a person’s face and are the sensual feature of our face.
There are several big and subtle procedures that can be done to augment the lips. Lip filler injections produce effective, immediate results. The effect wears off after a few months, so if a patient did not like it, then they are back to normal and if they did like it , then it can repeated to maintain the effect.
Lip implant is more permanent, but can be reversed. The newer implants are available in a variety of sizes and can be inserted with minimal stitches, bruising, swelling and quick recovery. The advantage is one does not need repeated injections.
Celebrities like Angelina Jolie and Jennifer Garner are the fuller lips icons, among the thousand women surveyed.
ASPS warns patients to choose a qualified and trained surgeon to do the procedure as they understand the entire asymmetry of the face. Mistakes can be disastrous.
