Celebrities and models continue to lead the way in lip augmentation trends, and bigger, smoother lips have become one of the most coveted facial features.
Still, some facial plastic surgeons recommend downsizing the lips for a more natural look, and advise us to steer clear of voluminous lips that only highlight the fact you've had a taste of the latest dermal fillers.
Beverly Hills Plastic Surgeons Peyman Solieman, MD and Jason Litner, MD, FRCSC point out several important factors to consider when pursuing your Hollywood lip makeover in their post, Please Put an End to Hollywood Lips!
They explain that more is not necessarily better, and too much volume on the upper lip can easily lead to a very unnatural look.
So how do you find the best match for your facial profile? A comprehensive consultation with a lip augmentation specialist will help you learn more about your treatment options - whether you select Sculptra, Juvederm or Restylane as your injectable of choice - and reviewing before and after galleries of lip augmentation procedures can make it easier to have realistic expectations.
