Lips have been in the news a lot recently. Specifically, people have been talking about Kylie Jenner’s lip procedure. Celebrity discussions often produce a lot of irrelevant and misinformation. Luckily, recent articles try to shed some light on the reality of lip augmentation surgery.
For example, In Style explores lip fillers in a recent article titled “Lip Fillers – All You Need To Know.” Cassie Steer of In Style writes, “For those considering giving Mother Nature a little helping hand we’ve enlisted the help of Dr Vicky Dondos of Medicetics clinic in London to guide you through what you need to know:
Are lip fillers safe? ‘As a procedure, lip enhancement is clinically very safe, however I always treat the lips with more caution than anywhere else on the face as it tends to be the site where things can go wrong,’ says Dr Dondos. To minimise this risk greatly, she advises opting for a semi-permanent FDA-approved Hyaluronic Acid-based filler such as Juverderm or Restylane as not only is HA a naturally-occurring substance in the body meaning that any adverse reactions to it are extremely rare, it’s also dissolvable which can be reassuring should the patient be unhappy with the outcome.”
App.com also takes a look at lip augmentation in a recent article titled “Get the perfect profile picture.” Gina Columbus of App.com writes, “‘It depends on the age of the patient … depends on their personality,’ Scaccia says. ‘They’re affected by what they see by celebrities — the notion is that bigger is better, but I’m very cautious on what I should provide. Unless you’re using temporary injectibles, what I’m doing can also be permanent.’ There are dermal fillers surgeons can inject in the lips — a minimally invasive procedure — such as Juvederm and Restylane, both hyaluronic acid fillers. ‘They can be wonderful if they’re used appropriately, terrible if overused,’ says Elkwood. “A little makeup makes you look nice, a lot of makeup make you look like a circus clown.’”
