Is it us.....Or have the lips of some Hollywood reality show starlets gotten bigger and bigger lately?
We think it's gotten out of control. It used to be too much boob, and now it's just cosmetically or surgery-enhanced mega lips. Hey, we are not against a little filler here and there, but when it looks over-the-top, well, we can't help but notice.
Reality star Kim Kardashian took some heat recently, after being photographed with a larger lower lip. When asked if she had had fillers injected, the dark-haired beauty responded this way:
"That’s not true. Trust me, I’ve tried Botox on the show… I have the flu. I’m puffy and swollen, and I have no make-up on. Why would I just do my bottom lip? My top lip was smaller and my bottom lip was huge and I’m thinking that would be the worst doctor on earth to do one lip and not the other. It’s definitely something that I would never do. I think my lips are big enough to my taste level."
And then there is Taylor Armstrong from "Real Housewives of Beverly Hills" sporting the oddest pair of long lips we've seen in a long time. She is always wetting her larger-than-life lips on the reality show, and it drives us nuts.
Another reality star beauty, Rachel Uchitel, best known as a mistress of Tiger Woods and now on Dr. Drew's 'Celebrity Rehab' VH-1 show, has also appeared with growing lips.
So, exactly how does one inflate their lips?
Through lip injections with fillers or through cosmetic surgery with procedures involving lip implants. The Perma Facial Implant is a permanent solution for keeping bigger, fuller lips.
According to their website, "The Perma Facial Implant™ is made of a soft, solid silicone elastomer using an injection molding process to produce a naturally contoured implant with a smooth, non-porous surface. The implant cannot rupture or deflate, and may be removed at any time."
Most women opt for fillers when it comes to bigger lips. The sting of the needle is painful, but downtime is quick and the results don't last, so it can be modified each time. Collagen and silicone used to be the only fillers for fatter lips. Look what too much nasty silicone did to reality star Lisa Rinna's famous huge pout. But now there are a variety of safer and better substances for injecting
Dermatologists will tell you that lip injections generally last from 9 months to a year before the substance, like hyaluronic acid dissolves. Those injections can cost around $900 per session. Ouch...in several ways.
We cannot say what these Hollywood celebrities are doing to suddenly develop much larger lips. We can't be sure that it's injections or even surgical lip implants. But there is a popular trend, that appears to be re-trending. And in Hollywood, apparently, Big is better when it comes to lips.
