Lip Fillers don't need to look fake

Who could have predicted the meteoric change in perception of how a woman’s lips should look before Love Island stormed onto our television screens in the last few years?

Now many young women looking in the mirror or at their latest selfie have decided that their lips are literally not measuring up to ideal that the latest group of girls are portraying on Love Island.

The media started this trend even prior to Love Island with the likes of the Kardashians and Jenner’s becoming the role models for thousands of impressionable young women whose new normal of how their faces should look has changed beyond comprehension.

This new market for plumped up lips has given rise to unregulated and untrained injectors dominating the burgeoning £2.7 billion UK filler industry with “trophy” lips becoming one of the most sought-after procedures.

Because facial fillers are not a prescription-only product it means that just about anyone can set themselves up as an injector without any basic medical training and no knowledge of facial anatomy whatsoever. Filler clinics have popped up in the back rooms of hairdressers and garden sheds alike, all promising exaggerated, overfilled lips and cheeks at discount prices. Products with no-known safety record, can and are, being used by these unlicensed cowboys.

So, let’s strip this back and look at the reality of beautiful lips. Younger women often have well-shaped, reasonably full and plump lips, however where there is a thinner lip line then volume can be subtly added to make the mouth area look full and lush but most importantly, natural. If there is a need to balance the bottom and top lip out then a little filler can work its magic there by increasing the volume of the thinner lip .Often when a woman ages the lips do become considerably thinner so by adding subtle volume it can restore a more youthful image to the whole face.

At Woodford Medical our doctors and nurses NEVER over-inflate lips when they inject as they pride ourselves in their clients receiving a natural and beautiful lip line which will keep friends guessing, rather than knowing, that they have had a procedure.
