First Angelina, then Kim and now Kylie. Big lips are in, and unless you completely refrain from TV or social media you’ve probably had lip envy at some point. Plumped up lips are the hottest trend and scream, “Look at what a hot, sexy goddess I am!” If you were born with a perfectly plumped kisser, shut up. We don’t want to hear about it. But if your lips lack the luscious volume you’re longing for and overdoing it on the lip liner just isn’t cutting it, there are some ways to beautifully plump up your lips and seriously up your selfie game.
Injectable fillers such as JUVÉDERM® and Restylane® are by far the most popular choice for plumping up the lips. Getting these injections gives instant results and can be done on your lunch break. You’ll be posting pouty selfies on Instagram by happy hour! The sexy volume these fillers provide is temporary, and subsequent injections are required after several months to maintain the results. However, if you’re a commitment-phobe who’s uncomfortable making a more permanent decision for larger lips, this minimally-invasive solution might be just right for you.
Silicone lip implants are another option for faking fuller lips. Obviously, this option requires surgery and therefore some downtime. On the upside, the results are permanent, so there’s no need for subsequent visits or additional injections as with dermal fillers. Lip implants are soft and natural-feeling so no one has to know your dirty little secret.
Whether you opt for a temporary or permanent Kylie-esque kisser, choose an experienced cosmetic surgeon to ensure you get the best results.
