The Truth About Pretty, Pouty Celebrity Lips

Following in the footsteps of her older sister Kim Kardashian, whose backside has fueled a “booty boom,” Kylie Jenner has everyone coveting her pouty lips.

The reality starlet has been open with her fans about getting lip fillers, and Cambio website wanted to know “What It Really Means to Get Lip Injections Like Kylie Jenner.”

They asked Dr. Matthew Schulman, one of New York City’s top cosmetic surgeons, to explain the procedure.

Dr. Schulman Explains

Dr. Schulman said that most plastic surgeons have switched from using collagen or fat injections to using hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid is naturally produced in the body, so it is less likely to cause health issues.

“Allergic reactions are very rare,” Dr. Schulman said. “There are no long term repercussions of lip injections when temporary filler [containing hyaluronic acid] is used.”

However, the results last less than a year, and more-permanent procedures come with more risk. As always, it’s important to “Do Your Homework” to find a qualified doctor.

“If permanent fillers such as silicone are used, any lumps, bumps or asymmetries will be permanent,” he said.
