Last year, we told you about Lisa Rinna’s corrective lip surgery that she needed to fix the lumpy oversized lips she got from silicone injections. As you can see, her lips look dramatically better than they did when they were overflowing with silicone, but that doesn’t mean Lisa is out of the woods in terms of developing further problems. She was most likely attracted to the idea of using silicone to augment her lips because silicone is a permanent filler… that’s right… permanent!

While it’s understandable that having to do something like lip injections a single time sounds like a good idea, permanent fillers like silicone, or long-lasting fillers like Radiesse and Artefill, are not always the best option when it comes to facial rejuvenation, especially in mobile parts of the face like the areas around the mouth and eyes.

The circular muscles around our eyes and mouth (the obicularis oculi and the obicularis oris) contract thousands of times every day as we talk, chew, kiss and tell. These repetitive contractions massage fillers into small balls over time, so the longer the filler last, or the more that is used, the more likely it will be that it forms a ball (lump). With a permanent filler like silicone, you can almost guarantee that you will get a lump (or two, or three) at some point, and the same is true for temporary, but long-lasting, fillers like Radiesse and Artefill.

So, while it seems like a good idea to get a filler that lasts a long time, you have to think about the downsides of a filler that will stick around long enough to be massaged into lumps by your facial muscles. HA fillers like Juvederm and Restylane don’t last as long as the others, but that they are much less likely to form lumps, and even if they do, they will go away relatively quickly. HA fillers typically last 4-6 months, and they are much softer in their composition which means that they look and feel much more natural. You do have to have the procedure repeated twice a year to maintain the results, but this sure beats having permanent lumpy overfilled lips, and the painful extended recovery of corrective lip reduction surgery!

Here are a few of our Before & After Lip Augmentation results with Juvederm. Very natural, and very beautiful…

No More Lumpy Lips for Lisa! According to HuffPo and People Mag, Lisa Rinna recently came clean about getting silicone injected into her lips on a whim back in the 80’s while jaunting around town with a friend. She admits that at the time she didn’t think any more of it than getting a tattoo, but now 25 years later she found herself going under the knife for “corrective surgery”. The prob … Read More
