One of the most sought-after looks in Hollywood and beyond is a big, beautiful pucker. Full lips have come to signify youth, beauty, and a type of seductive charm – which is what leads many into the offices of plastic surgeons looking to plump up their pout via fillers, injectables, and lip augmentation.
But the luscious lips trend isn’t new. It’s come and gone throughout history since as far back as the 15 and 1600’s. In the late 1800s, the Gibson Girl phenomenon popularized the big lip look with a high Cupid’s bow and sculpted volume that stayed on trend for nearly 20 years. Full lips showed up again full force in the 1960s and 70s, when doe eyes and a big pout became the standard of beauty. The full pucker we covet today is the result of a wave of 90s beauties including Julia Roberts and Angelina Jolie who ushered in an era that, as the Kardashians have proven, is still going strong.
Kalos offers several surgical and non-surgical options for getting your desired lip look, including:
- Lip injections – Lip injections, including Botox, Juvederm, and Kybella, are a non-surgical option that can help smooth out and plump up thinning or sagging lips for a full, natural lip look. This is a great option for those looking to plump up their pout quickly, and get back to their favorite activities with little to no down time.
- Lip Augmentation – This surgical procedure provides patience with fuller lips and a more defined upper arch and Cupid’s bow. This procedure provides permanently restored volume to the lips with only one visit to the plastic surgeon and no implants.
- Lip lift – Just the other areas of the face, lips fall victim to the pull of gravity as we age, sagging and sloping downward, contributing to an older look. Cosmetic lip lifts are a surgical procedure that can help the restore the youthful, upturned look of the mouth, providing natural and long-term results.
