Self-Plumping Your Pout
Full lips have often been associated with beauty, youth, and good health. It seems that there have been many self made attempts at achieving pouty lips lately without seeking the advice of an experienced professional. If you reside in the Scottsdale area and are interested in lip augmentation, please contact plastic surgeon Dr. Paul Angelchik at 602-375-8888 for a free consultation.
Recently, there has been a lot of hype in the media over achieving pouty lips like those of Kylie Jenner. Many young people have been taking part in the Kylie Jenner Challenge which involves taking a shot glass, inserting your lips in it, then sucking the air out creating friction so that your lips swell and you achieve a “pouty” look.
Unfortunately, this has left many with bruised and damaged lips, and in some cases where shot glasses have shattered, it has left people with severe injuries and scarring. What many teens think is a harmless is actually causing real harm and can result in long term damage.
Do-it-yourself lip enhancers are not recommended as they can cause long term nerve damage if used incorrectly. For those who are younger and still developing, the best thing to do is to purchase a lip plumping lip gloss or lipstick in order to temporarily plump your lips in a safe way.
If your lips are fully developed and you still desire your lips to have more pout to them, lip injections or augmentation may be your best option. It’s important to always consult with an experienced professional when considering any cosmetic procedure.
