The Lip Filler Phenomenon
A non-surgical trend has now taken the world by storm
For the past 25 years, plastic surgery clinics have been kept busy by women getting breast implant surgery. Large, luscious lips along with other non-surgical options are in vogue now, and plastic surgery requests pale in comparison. Perhaps the fact that anyone can afford cosmetic treatments now, not just socialites and Hollywood stars, is fueling this rising trend. The latest celebrity who got “filler” is now the buzz word. Just a short time ago, Kylie Jenner dominated social media because of her new lips.
Fillers provide the client with full lips for up to one year
Lip Augmentation Phenomenon
From the medical standpoint, it is probably because there are safe, excellent fillers now that last longer than ever before. Products like Juvéderm and Restylane are smoother and produce natural-looking volume in the lips without lumps or bumps.
Part of the aging process is the loss of volume in our lips, which can become flat and thin as a result. There is often the formation of tiny vertical lines with volume loss as well. Injectable fillers produce plump lips that remind us of youth. It is a fact that when lips are full, they make the lower part of the face look younger. Most older women who choose lip augmentation do it for this reason rather than because it is a trend.
Beautiful celebrities who have plump, shapely lips have made dermal fillers extremely popular. Angelina Jolie is one that comes to mind. Thousands of dollars are spent every year by women who march into facial cosmetic clinics demanding “Angelina lips”. Younger ladies who choose lip filler usually do it because it is the trend and they want to be part of it.

What Are Full Lips?
Finally, men have always been attracted to lovely, full lips. Obviously, when you look in glamour magazines, the definition of “full” varies wildly. It would seem that some Hollywood stars are addicted to fillers because their lips continue to get bigger every year! Choosing an experienced professional to perform your lip augmentation should be paramount so that you don’t end up with the “duck look”.
One of our doctors, Dr. Cory Torgerson, is not only a certified facial plastic surgeon; he has also been enlisted by many of the top dermal filler corporations to teach and train other doctors on the art of injecting properly. Medical science is definitely involved with injections, but that knowledge is not sufficient to produce optimum results. There is a lot of artistry involved in lip augmentation to ensure that the correct amount is injected so that the lips harmonize with other facial features.
Lip plumping is quick, relatively pain-free, and also affordable, so it’s no wonder voluptuous lips are popular! If you are considering lip fillers and want to learn more, please contact our office for a consultation with one of our doctors!
