Common Reasons for Lip Enhancements

A smile can go a very long way in life, and for many, it’s the lips that define a beautiful, radiant smile. Unfortunately, the lips are an area where we don’t have much control over how we look from birth – this is genetic. But that doesn’t mean there’s nothing you can do to help change the way your lips look.

At the offices of Dr. Steven Warnock, our facial services include multiple lip areas. Let’s look at some of the most common reasons why people, mostly women, choose to have lip enhancements.

Bringing Balance

In many cases, a lip enhancement can be part of – or the final piece in – an attempt to balance out the aesthetics of the face. Many people equate beauty and symmetry, and for facial structures that lack this, the lips are often a crux area. Even if there’s not necessarily anything wrong with the lips themselves, certain enhancements or augmentations might help them better complement the rest of the face.

Changing Shape

In other cases, you might be looking for an actual change in the shape, thickness or roundness of your lips. Some women have a small or thin upper lip, for instance, and may want to augment this for a fuller look. In general, while things like lip liner and lipstick can provide temporary and often limited solutions for these issues, lip augmentation can provide a permanent fix.

Looking Younger or Sexier

The most common reason women look to lip augmentation or enhancement is to improve their youthful or sexy look. Aging comes with a few natural bodily changes, and one of these is the lips beginning to thin and dry out, plus develop wrinkles. The right enhancement can restore the smoothness and fullness that you’re used to here, and can help your smile and full face look decades younger.
