How to Get Full and Plump Lips

How to get full and plump lips

Each year there seems to be a body part that people are fixated on. Last year, big booties and full lips were paraded everywhere from social media and on television. We’ve talked about why women have decided on having Brazilian butt lifts for bigger bottoms. Now we want to talk about the demand for lip injections for plump, fuller lips. The obsession with Kylie Jenner’s lips may have triggered the sudden obsession last year, but full lips have been scientifically proven as more attractive than thin lips.

The Science Behind Big Lips

Facial features serve as a sign of attractiveness. In the study “New ‘Golden’ Ratios for Facial Beauty”, the authors noted that men prefer women with large eyes, small noses, small chins, narrow cheeks, high eyebrows and large-full lipped smiles. Research also suggests that women with large lips are thought to have strong mating potential.

Another point to keep in mind is that as a person ages, their lips get thinner due to the loss of collagen. Ultraviolet rays from the sun can also break down collagen and cause lips to thin. While thin lips tend to be associated with older age, full lips signify youth and sensuality—qualities that many women want for themselves.

How to Get Bigger Lips

If lip-plumping tricks and makeup isn’t cutting it for you anymore, then maybe lip injections could be what you’re looking for. Lip augmentation involves the injections of dermal fillers. Dermal fillers have a smooth consistency gel made of hyaluronic acid, which adds volume and hydration. Common hyaluronic acid gels are Juvederm, Restylane, Perlane and Voluma.

Lip Augmentation at SpaMedica Toronto

The administrator will carefully inject the gel into the lip area to smooth away lines and create a fuller appearance. You might experience some swelling or bruising for a few days after the treatment. The day after treatment is when your lips will look most swollen. Applying ice packs right after your appointment should help reduce the swelling. It’s also possible to have fat grafting done to your lips for a natural, fuller appearance.
