Lip Obsession

For the most part, I have been pretty open about my obsession with full lips. Aside from it being the newest beauty trend, I have always thought that voluptuous lips are beautiful. They represent youth and health, and they are downright sexy. Its also no secret that I myself, have thin granny lips, and I’m not proud of it.

I have taken every measure possible to plump my pout. Some quite painful, and others just didn’t budge my volume. The most drastic change was from an injection (Belotero) at a local medi-spa, and it seemed to work beautifully…for about a month. Would I take such a drastic measure again? Probably. It was a little painful, very little recovery time from swelling, but next time I would certainly try another brand of filler. I liked that no one really noticed, because it was very natural looking. Yet, I didn’t feel like it was worth the expense. I expected it to last much longer than it did. I should also mention that everyone’s body processes fillers at a different rate, some lasts longer than others due to how it metabolizes within your body. It is a very safe solution, made of hyaluronic acid and numbing solution. It feels very soft and natural. This is not the ideal filler if you are looking to achieve the duck face! That’s a good thing though.

Looking a little haggard here after the injections. Little redness, no bruising, and a little swollen.
