People across the United States have been seeking lip enhancements for many years. Striving for the perfect pout, women have been plumping their lips with injectable fillers. While this trend has continued to grow for the last few years, there may be a change on the horizon.
Asian countries have recently seen a rise in lip reduction surgery. Many men and women overseas are now seeking plastic surgery to obtain more Caucasian-like features. This is especially true for those who are in their 20s and 30s, which are prime ages for securing employment. Beauty is important to the Asian culture; they believe that attractiveness opens up more opportunities.
About the Procedure
The procedure involves an incision where the outer lip turns into the mouth (the wet-dry line), and then pulling that line inward. Stitches hold it in place until it is healed. The result is the external lips are much smaller. Reductions can be performed on the both upper and lower lips.
Will Americans Soon Want It?
The question that many have asked is if this new type of reduction will make it to the United States. The answer is yes. Actually, it already has, and it may increase in popularity.
With the stigma of unnatural lip enhancements, many women with naturally big pouts have asked for a reduction. Even though theirs is natural, they are often criticized for looking overdone.
When it comes to the surgery, most people want just their upper lip reduced in size. Fortunately, the procedure only takes one to two hours and costs an average of about $10,000.
