Are Selfies to Blame for the Increase in This Procedure?

dr4Thanks to the constantly visible nature of social media, it’s not surprising that we live in such highly documented times. From politicians and celebrities to our own friends and family, and ourselves, the ubiquitous “selfie” has all of us trying to look our absolute best.

And it’s this staple of social media that some experts are saying might be contributing to the record number of patients undergoing lip augmentations in an attempt to get the perfect pucker.

According to data from the American Academy of Plastic Surgeons, the number of lip implant procedures performed has gone up a staggering 48% since 2000. And lip injections and fillers such as Botox were part of a 1000% increase in overall injection procedures performed since that same year.

And there are several reasons, beyond the selfie, as to why that could be.

Benefits of lip augmentation:

  • Many procedural options are available, including lip lifts, bruise-free injections, lip reductions and more to accommodate your aesthetic preference.
  • Lip procedures can be done as subtly or as drastically as the patient desires, allowing them to have more control over the outcome of their look.
  • Both surgical and non-surgical, permanent and non-permanent options are available.
  • Lip augmentation is less drastic place to start when it comes to enhancing your overall appearance that something as involved as a facelift.
