What are Lip Fillers?

Lip fillers, also known as lip injections or lip augmentations, are cosmetic filler treatments that enhance lip shape and size using injectable products like hyaluronic acid. The most popular options for lip fillers are Juvéderm and Restylane, both FDA-approved hyaluronic acid dermal fillers manufactured specifically for adding volume to the lips and smoothing out wrinkles around the mouth.

The Lip Filler Procedure

During a lip filler treatment, a doctor will inject small amounts of filler product directly into the lips and vermillion border (the junction where your lip meets your regular skin) using an ultra-fine needle. The hyaluronic acid integrates into the lip tissues, adding structure and plumping the area.

Benefits of Lip Filler

The benefits of our lip filler procedure include:

  • Fuller, defined lip contour and cupid’s bow
  • Reduction of fine lines around the lips
  • Plumping of thin or uneven lips
  • Long-lasting yet reversible results
  • Little to no downtime after treatment

Results and Maintenance

Results are immediate and fillers also stimulate collagen growth for natural-looking, long-term lip enhancement. Treatments take just 30-60 minutes and patients can return immediately to their normal activities with only mild swelling and redness. While results last 6-12 months on average, lip fillers are reversible and can be easily dissolved if patients want to return to their original lip size.

Why Did Kylie Jenner Get Lip Fillers?

Kylie Jenner, one of the world’s most followed celebrities with over 300 million Instagram followers, built her reputation and career on her plump pout. But the star was actually born with very naturally thin lips according to old family photos and “Keeping Up with the Kardashians” footage.

Dealing with Insecurities

Kylie has admitted to trying lip fillers at age 16 after dealing with insecurities about her natural lip shape. “I had really small lips, and it was, like, one of my first kisses, and a guy was like, ‘I didn’t think you’d be a good kisser because you have such small lips,’” she confessed during the “Keeping Up With the Kardashians” 10 year anniversary special in 2017. “I took that really hard.”

Achieving Her Desired Look

After years of speculation, Kylie opened up about enhancing her lips with fillers to achieve a more balanced facial profile

Cosmetic doctors agree her transformation helped even out her naturally thin upper lip in proportion to her full lower lip and wide cheeks. “I just didn’t feel desirable or pretty,” Kylie told People Magazine in 2019. “I really wanted bigger lips. I would overline my lips with lip liner just to create the illusion of bigger lips.” Ultimately fillers gave her the confidence boost she was seeking.

What did Kylie Jenner lips look like before filler?

Before lip fillers, Kylie Jenner had naturally thin lips with little definition. As a young teenager on Keeping Up with the Kardashians, her upper lip almost disappeared as it met her philtrum in a straight line. Her bottom lip had slightly more volume but wasn’t full.

The edges of Kylie’s lips also weren’t defined, giving her mouth area a blurred look. Comparing photos through the years shows just how drastically fillers transformed her lips. Now Kylie’s pout has exaggerated volume with a sharply defined cupid’s bow, exaggerated borders and a pillowy finish.

The difference illustrates how injectable filler can reshape lips for a curvier, fuller look.

Are There Risks or Downsides to Lip Fillers?

While minimally invasive, lip filler injections do come with some risks and side effects to consider before rushing off to the clinic. Some of the common side effects include:

  • Mild swelling
  • Redness
  • Bruising
  • Tenderness 

But these typically last a few days after the treatment and resolve quickly. Discomfort during the procedure can be managed with numbing cream.

More serious risks include:

  • Uneven results
  • Nodules under the skin
  • Allergic reactions in rare cases
  • Lip filler migration that can cause a droopy look 

Most side effects can be avoided by choosing an experienced board-certified provider and following proper aftercare instructions.
