Thanks to prominent figures and celebrities showing off their plump lips, everyone else is clamoring to get the luscious pair. There are many ways to get plump lips—including natural ways using ingredients like cinnamon or even chili pepper. It can be dangerous to try these natural methods or home remedies, though. The outcome is never guaranteed, and the procedure might hurt and sting. The use of cosmetics is also a popular way to plump your lips. The trouble with this is, the results are only temporary. If you truly want to achieve natural-looking plump lips, you should visit a plastic surgeon or dermatologist. You will generally be presented two options:
1. Surgical – Lip augmentation is a very popular procedure. During this procedure, incisions will be made on the side of the lips and implants will be put on the lips. It may seem like a small procedure but lip augmentation is serious. You should be prepared for the side-effects of lip augmentation physically, mentally, and emotionally.
2. Non-surgical – Another way to plump up your lips is to get injections. Products such as collagen or other lip fillers will be injected into your lips. Your own fat (from other parts of your body) can also be used. The good thing about non-surgical lip augmentation is that there’s barely any downtime and recovery is quick. The trouble with it, though, is that the results only last a few months. Regular touch ups will be required if you want to continue sporting plump lips.
Getting plumper lips is not like getting new clothes. You don’t just choose a certain lip and then paste in onto your face. The doctor will assess the face of your shape as well as the structure of your lips. You can then say what you are looking to achieve and he or she will tell if you if it’s is plausible or not.
