LUSCIOUS LIPS…..symmetrical and in proportion
My personal approach to lip augmentation is very much towards the “˜less is more’ end of the spectrum. I believe it is essential that the shape of the lips ultimately match and complement the overall shape of the face, rather than being looked at in isolation. The lips do tend to lose volume with age, and ideally the relative heights of the lips would be in the proportion of 1/3 (top) to 2/3 (bottom). However, sometimes it can be more important to address a lack of symmetry of the mouth, or perhaps the somewhat “˜glum’ look that can arise when the corners of the mouth begin to turn downwards. My advice would be to undergo a thorough assessment with a reputable practitioner, ideally with the use of photography, to find out what your options might be.
