For many people, full, plump lips are at the top of their wish list. Since we’re not all born with Angelina Jolie’s lips, there are products and procedures that can help to achieve that look. It seems a growing number of people are in search of the “perfect pout” as the American Society of Plastic Surgeons reports that there was a 50% increase in lip augmentations for those ages 18 to 55 and older between 2000 and 2016.
One way to get fuller lips is through the use of lip fillers. Lip fillers can increase the volume of your lips and impact their shape. A dermal filler is injected into your lips to give them that plumper look.
Injectable lip fillers have grown increasingly popular because they are non-invasive and can last anywhere from six to eighteen months. Although they are not a permanent solution, they help people to achieve the look they want and maintain it for a good amount of time. Many people choose to repeat the procedure when the effect wears out.
Lip fillers are also popular because they can be done in a plastic surgeon’s office in less than a half-hour. Although the site of the injection is numbed, that wears off quickly and people return to their normal activities right away. One of the best ways to get the look you want when it comes to lip fillers is to choose the right injector.
How to choose the best injector for lip filler
Once you’ve decided you want to alter the appearance of your lips you need to decide what the goal is.
Do you want to just define the edges?
Do you want fuller lips all around?
Do you want more of a “pouty” look?
Your answers will determine the type of injector you choose.
There are several different products on the market that can get you those results. Having an image in mind and expressing your wishes can help your plastic surgeon decide what type of injector would work best to get the result you want.
