As we grow older, our lips naturally become thinner, transforming a once enticingly kissable pout into a fine line. If you've experienced this transition, or have always had thinner lips, you may have made a few cosmetic mishaps to compensate for the lack of volume, such as an overly bold shade or a bit of heavy-handedness with the lip liner.
Though some makeup tips can certainly accentuate your lips, the harsh truth is that no amount of lip gloss and liner can actually tackle issues with volume or shape. With that in mind, the print version of InStyle recently recommended visiting a Miami plastic surgeon if you're looking for more than an appealing new shade. The text, as reproduced here by The Frisky, reads "Lusting after lush, pillowy lips and a dramatically smoother smile? All it may take is a few quick shots."
While it's true that listing plastic surgery alongside lip stains and other cosmetics can pose some risk, largely because it downplays the gravity of such procedures. The fact that facial injections are casually listed alongside lipstick tips certainly sparked the ire of The Frisky. However, this move is also indicative of how mainstream plastic surgery has become. Plus, the bitter truth is that there is only so much makeup can do to enhance your appearance.
If you are really interested in altering the way you look, be it dramatically or subtly, consider contacting board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Christopher Craft. He can help you determine the best course of action to achieve your desired results with minimal risk.
