Lip injections are on the rise. In 2017, cosmetic doctors administered more than 2 million soft tissue fillers – the gold standard for achieving fuller, more voluminous lips. When scoring the scientific literature on human sexuality and attraction, it is easy to understand why so many women are puckering up at their doctor’s office for lip injections.
The Lips Are the Sexiest Part of a Women’s Face – Says Scientists
Scientists at Manchester University tracked the eye movements of male subjects as they were presented with images of different women. The researchers concluded that “full lips” were shown to be the “most attractive feature” of a woman’s face. Lead researcher, Dr. Geoff Beattie summarized his findings “‘This study proves that lips represent one of the most sensual aspects of a woman’s body and play a critical role in human sexual attraction. Full and red lips combined deliver the perfect pout to achieve male fixation.” The supreme attractiveness of full lips was supported by another scientific study published in the journal of Vision Research . Testing for a facial “golden ratio” of beauty, the scientists concluded, “A woman who has large lips, suggesting a strong mating potential… will always be more attractive than a woman with narrow lips and average length and width ratios.”
Why Lips Thin as We Get Older
Not only do voluminous lips make a woman look sexier to the male gaze, but the lips are also a significant indicator of age. The lips tend to thin out and lose volume, as we get older. This results from the gradual depletion of collagen that begins when men and women enter their 30s. Moreover, research shows us that a woman’s mouth can reveal her age just as much as fine lines and wrinkles.
Lip Injections for Thinning Lips
Fortunately, lip injections are a simple, non-invasive solution for aging women who want fuller lips or younger adults who simply want to plump up their pout. However, not all lip injections, and particularly not all lip injectors are the same. To enjoy symmetrical, naturally voluminous-looking lips, follow these tips from Dr. Anca Tchelebi, a cosmetic physician who has been administering soft tissue fillers for over 17 years.
Different Lip Injections & Techniques for Beautiful Lip Augmentation
According to Dr. Anca Tchelebi, these techniques help ensure lip injections provide beautiful, natural-looking lip augmentation.
- True with any cosmetic injection, lip fillers should help to balance the entire face. Bigger is not always better. Good injectors know just how much lip injection is needed to main facial harmony while enhancing the lips.
- It is critical to maintain the true shape of the patient’s lips. Good injectors know how to work with the natural contour of the lips.
- For achieving a fuller look, gradual augmentation is key. Gradual expansion from several lip injections, spaced evenly apart, is essential to achieving a dramatic volume increase that maintains a naturally voluminous look.
Choosing the Best Lip Injection for You
Several soft tissue fillers serve as lip injections. However, the most important factor in obtaining beautifully plump lips is the technique and expertise of the injector. Skilled injectors will know which lip injection will best suit the individual characteristics of your lips and face.
For example, Dr. Anca Tchelebi utilizes a variety of Hyaluronic Fillers for lip injections. The specific lip filler she chooses “depends on the lips and what the person wants.” Juvederm Vollure or Juvederm Ultra are excellent choices for lip injections when the patient wants to add substantial volume. Juvederm Volbella is ideal if a patient wants a subtle volume increase.
