The number of lip augmentation procedures performed was at an all-time high last year, making it the second-fastest growing facial procedure since 2000. What’s driving this demand?
Doctors believe that selfies are primarily responsible for driving people to get lip augmentation. After all, don’t you want to look good if you’re taking a photo of yourself to post on Facebook, Instagram or other social media site?
The lips are an important facial feature, especially for women. They can define your face. If they’re overly thin, wrinkled, asymmetric or lacking volume, lip augmentation is an effective way to correct any issues you may have.
While the number of lip implant procedures totalled 27,449 in 2015, according to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS), this procedure does require surgery and extensive recovery time. So why not consider something nonsurgical instead?
Juvéderm is a soft tissue filler that is administered by a relatively easy injection treatment, without the risks and extensive recovery period associated with surgical methods.
