We so often see photographs of celebrities that have duck lips. If you don’t know what I am referring to, just tune into an episode of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills and take a look at most of the women.
You know the story – the lips protrude out like duck bills because too much filler is put into the lips. While Taylor wins the prize, Kyle is catching up to her. It does look terrible. So, what exactly is the problem and how can YOU avoid getting duck lips? One solution to this problem is a procedure called the Lip lift. This procedure raises the upper lip to it’s natural youthful state.
Are bigger lips more youthfull
Most people get fillers put into their lips because they want the lips to be more youthful and sexy looking. Generally, everybody thinks that ‘bigger lips = more youthful’. But in reality, that is not the case. Let’s think about this – Let’s assume you are 35 years old and you are thinking about what your lips looked like when you were 25 years old. So, did your lips shrink? What happened? What is really different?
While your lips have become thinner with age, something else has happened. Gravity has happened. Yes, the position of the upper lip has been affected by gravity. The result is that when your mouth is at a resting position, you can no longer see your front teeth because the top lip is now lower. This has the effect of making your overall facial appearance look harder and older.
So what is the answer? The Lip lift ! The lip lift is a procedure which will remove a very tiny amount of skin right at the base of the nose. It elevates the top lip, exposes a tiny bit more of the red pigment portion, and brings your lips back to that ‘oh so sexy and youthful’ look.
