These days, lip augmentations are more popular than ever before, with iconic celebrities Kylie Jenner popularising the super-plump lip look. Lip augmentation creates fuller and plumper lips while also reducing fine wrinkles around the mouth. The procedure is becoming increasingly affordable and is also quick, with zero downtime, allowing to people to get on with their lives ? so it is little wonder that in 2015 a record number of lip augmentations were performed. In fact, in 2015 the number of lip procedures had increased by 1000% since 2000!
But what is driving the desire for fuller lips?
Experts believe that the rise of social media, particularly photo-centric apps like Instagram and Snapchat, have made people more aware of features that are emphasised by celebrities, such as the shape and volume of their lips. This theory led to a study commissioned by the Australian Society of Plastic Surgeons which asked women which celebrity?s lips they most admired. The study found that the top four picks were:
- Jennifer Lawrence
- Scarlett Johansson
- Jennifer Garner
- Angelina Jolie
Jennifer Lawrence took out the top spot due to the natural, sultry shape and volume of her lips. This result showed that people are more and more interested in enhancing their lips in a way that looks very natural and subtle. Achieving these results are very possible with the current injectables, but only with a skilled doctor. Many of those hoping to achieve Jennifer-esque lips are being disappointed by cheap injectable treatments provided by under qualified technicians.
Enhancing the lips is an easy way for people to significantly improve their appearance without undertaking invasive surgery such as a facelift. There are a variety of ways you can shape your lips: from dermal fillers to lip injections, that will look completely natural and make you look like you were born with the perfect pout.
