Avoiding The "Duck Lips" Look When You Opt For Injectables
By NewBeauty Staff |
A concern among women who augment their lips is that they'll be overfilled, which can result in what some call "duck lips." There are even websites dedicated to criticizing this permanently puckered look! But you can get fuller lips without channeling Donald or Daffy.
Where your doctor injects you determines your outcome. There are two parts of the lips that can be injected: the white roll, where the lip meets the skin under the nose, and the red line, where the dry and wet part of your lips meet. If too much is injected into the white roll, your lips will take on a shelf-like appearance.
The duck look can also result from over-correction of the the philtrum, the two lines that create a a little groove above the middle of your lip.
If you feel your lips are too full, hyaluronic acid fillers can be reversed with hyaluronidase. But one of the easiest ways to avoid unwanted results is by going to a qualified plastic surgeon or dermatologist-not a quack.
