Debunking Popular Myths About Lip Augmentation

As we get older, our bodies produce less collagen and our lips start thinning. If you’re like many people, you don’t want to lose your luscious lips. In that case, you may be considering lip augmentation to restore your lips to their attractive, youthful pout. Another reason you may want a lip augmentation injection is if you’ve always wanted a better smile and fuller lips. However, the myths about lip injections may make you skeptical about the idea. Don’t be skeptical. We debunk popular lip augmentation myths below.

Myth #1: Lip Augmentation Is Permanent

Lip augmentation injections are not permanent. The chemical solution will slowly exit your body within 12 to 18 months (some injections wear off within six months). Also, if you decide that you don’t like the look or size of your lip injections, then you can request a reversal agent. The reversal agent chemical solution will return your lips to their natural state within several days.

Myth #2: Lip Augmentation Never Looks Natural

You may see people whose lip injections give them “duck lips” or lips that do not appear natural on their face. Rest assured, excessively large lips do not occur from one injection. Cosmetic surgeons purposely inject a little filler at a time, so you can decide how full you want your lips to look. Thus, if someone has “duck lips,” it’s because they’ve requested several lip injections.

Myth #3: Lip Augmentation Makes Your Lips Feel Rubbery

Perhaps some people have this misconception because your lips will feel stiff and swollen immediately after the injection. However, this stiffness soon wears off, leaving behind fuller, natural-feeling lips. Your lips should feel natural and normal around two weeks post-injection.

Myth #4: Only Women Get Lip Injections

Anyone can benefit from cosmetic enhancements and not only women want kissable lips–men get lip augmentation injections, too.
