Kylie Jenner Lips – In the office
With social media photos, instagram, and youtube channels on the rise, as plastic surgeons, we are seeing an increase in requests to look like certain celebrities. Though Kylie Jenner Lips would look good on only certain types of faces, it is a common request we receive from women who want fuller lips. First, find a plastic surgeon who specializes in facial procedures and has experience with injecting lips. Though I don’t mind fixing an unnatural or overinjected lip, it is much easier to inject appropriately the first time around so we can avoid the psychologoical trauma, expense, and time associated with a poor lip injection. Creating Kylie Jenner lips is easy but creating lips that match your face is the difficult part. When talking to your surgeon, let him or her discuss your face with you and what would look the best with your facial features.
In our practice, we typically use Juvederm Ultra or Ultra Plus for lip augmentation and use Restylane Silk for lip enhancement. If the patient is only looking for improvement in some of the lines around the lips, I will usually use Belotero. Since my practice specializes in natural lip enhancement, I will usually use one syringe at a time and then reevaluate the patient’s lips 2 weeks later (unless the patient has a history of having used 2 syringes previously). I would say 75% of the time women are happy with just the one syringe, and 25% of the time, women come back and want more.
Though some women want fuller lips, others want a more subtle enhancement; these women are looking for more definition and improvement in lines instead of fuller lips. For these individuals, Restylane Silk, a hyaluronic acid filler that lasts 6 months and recently FDA approved, is ideal. It provides a subtle but natural looking enhancement (not augmentation) that improves the definition of the lips but still looks age-appropriate. This is very popular in the 45 year old and older demographic and suits women who are afraid of having a fake lip look.
