When BIG Bad Lips Happen To Beautiful Women

Dermatologists + plastic surgeons would both agree that a little lip filler never hurt anyone. But they emphasize the words "a little."

That's when celebrities, models and "regular women" get into cosmetic trouble--when they don't adhere to those words.

Getting dermal filler can be quite addicting. Whether you're using filler to boost V-O-L-U-M-E into your cheeks, jawline, under eye sockets or lips, a little goes a long way.

A good dermatologist or good plastic surgeon knows when to say, "when." But sadly, many surgical pros yield to the patient's wishes, and instantly we've got this:

When BIG Bad Lips Happen to Beautiful Women.

And this time we won't even mention actress Lisa Rinna.

Here are just a handful of stars with beyond normal-looking lips---Nicole Kidman, Kim Kardashian, Khloe Kardashian and Janice Dickinson.

No---We cannot prove these lovely women have done anything to their lips cosmetically-speaking, but it would appear that they have possibly gone over-board with the injections. Allegedly, we might add.

Experts will advise using Hyaluronic acid fillers like Restylane, Perlane, Juvederum, etc. These substances are the preferred choice for lip enhancement because when done properly, look + feel soft + natural.

And if lips become TOO big, these volumizing fillers can be reversed.

Here's what derm expert Dr. Teh Siew Yen says about lip injection over-board:

 "The key to natural looking lips is to start with a small amount of filler and touch up with more later, if needed. Too much lip filler can result in blunting of the lip edges and cause a sausage-like appearance. Less is often more and it is best to make the most of our natural lips rather than attempting to over-stuff it."
