Lip augmentation is a cosmetic procedure that can give you fuller, plumper lips. Currently an injectable Derma Filler is the most common method of lip augmentation.
The Kylie Jenner Effect
Lately more and more celebrities have acknowledged using facial aesthetics and their fans are now following in their footsteps, with progressive media coverage making it more socially acceptable.
Kylie Jenner has been extensively credited for the elevated demand for lip fillers. The graph below shows the immense spike in lip filler searches in May 2015, just after Kylie Jenner confessed she used temporary lip fillers. Clinics worldwide now frequently see younger patients asking for lip fillers, regularly clutching a picture of Kylie Jenner to replicate the look they desire.
Lip Filler Trends
The American Society of Plastic Surgeons reported in 2014 that face shaping cosmetic procedures were on the rise for female patients, aged 20 to 29. According to dermatologists these young patients aren’t looking for something subtle but they wanted the ‘work’ to be noticeable.
Another cause for concern is money tight teens who turn to discount providers who don’t have proper training or quality products. Quite often groups of friends will go in groups to have their lip fillers done at bargain prices, meaning a lot of corrective procedures have to be performed later down the line.
Where To Draw The Line
Tulisa Contostavlos (former N’Dubz member) was seen to have cosmetic enhancements earlier in 2014. She was first seen outside of a courthouse after her procedures were done, here we can see the dramatic difference before and after.
Pete Burns has a famous case back in 2008, as he received botched lip injections. He suffered blisters and swelling after the treatment. He was injected with Outline Original and was no well informed of the potential side effects. His doctor also failed to follow guidelines about using the product in conjunction with other products, later giving Pete Burns many more follow up injections.
In 2009, Pete Burns won his court settlement from his badly performed lip surgery. His lawyer released a statement saying, “he required more than 18 months of corrective surgery”
