Who has the best celebrity lips?
The lips are an anatomic focal point of the face, and beautiful, lush lips can make the face appear more sensuous, feminine, and proportioned.
The most envied celebrity lips include the pouts on Lana Del Rey, Rihanna, Scarlett Johansson, Taylor Swift, Angelina Jolie, Jennifer Lopez, M.I.A., Kim Kardashian, and Natalie Portman. Although these nine beauties each have their own looks, features, skin tones, and styles, what they share are some common attributes of great lips.
What makes lips beautiful?
- The lower lip is slightly larger than the upper lip
- The upper lip has a central curve called a Cupid's bow with symmetrical peaks on either side
- The skin around the lips at the vermillion border is smooth and wrinkle-free
- The corners of the lips (the oral commissures) curve up slightly at the sides
- The tubercle (the central part of the upper lip) is slightly fuller than the rest of the lip
- The lips complement the other facial features
What if you weren't born with the perfect pout?
If your lips are not exactly what you'd like them to be, using an injectable filler like Juvederm, Restylane, Belotero, or Restylane Silk can be a great solution. In just a few minutes, your lips can be plumped to your desired effect.
For the best aesthetic result, your lips must suit your facial features and complement your overall facial balance. For this reason, lip augmentation with injectable fillers is highly customized. Some women seek a subtle boost in fullness that is hardly noticeable, while others want a more dramatic pout. Still others want to smooth out the wrinkles around their lips and seek lip augmentation or lip fillers to smooth out this attention-getting area.
If you are interested in lip augmentation with injectable fillers, please call our office at (212) 452-2400 to set up a consultation with Dr. Devgan. Your fillers can be done at the same visit as your initial consultation.
A word of caution
With Juvederm and Restylane lip injections more popular than ever, there are more and more practitioners of all types performing these delicate procedures. Be aware that facial anatomy is complex, and vital structures like nerves and blood vessels lurk beneath the surface of your lips.
You are best served going to a board-certified plastic surgeon who has operated on the lips and has an intimate understanding of their cross-sectional anatomy (rather than a gynecologist, internist, or inexperienced nurse injector who has never seen what is underneath the pink surface of the lip skin). Seeking lip augmentation from an experienced, board-certified plastic surgeon can help you avoid complications like uneven lips, lumpiness, asymmetry, and necrosis or tissue death.
