Lip Shape


Lip size and shape are important factors in overall beauty. Full, rosy lips are undeniably attractive. According to face reading, the shape of one’s lips can indicate certain personality traits. What makes an ideal lip shape and how can we achieve it?

The ideal lip shape is defined by certain characteristics: well-defined contours, sharp edges, upturned corners, richly colored, and deeply grooved. The lips should complement the proportions of one’s facial features whether closed or smiling. Thick lips are associated with honesty and helpfulness while thin lips may imply unreliability and difficulty with responsibility. Clear lip lines suggest verbal skill and confident speech, while blurred lines indicate difficulty with expression.

Additionally, “the upper lip represents emotion, while the lower lip represents desire.” Thin upper lips suggest cold-heartedness, while thin lower lips may suggest financial difficulties. Conversely, those with thick lips are often blessed with good fortune, eloquence, or sometimes greed. Face reading also suggests that those with a slightly thicker lower lip that can support the upper lip tend to be dependable and responsible. Though these analyses may not be medically supported, it’s clear that beautiful lips are important, and many people invest a lot of effort to achieve full, plump lips.

Firstly, we need to determine the client’s specific lip issue. Are they too thin? Is the lip line unclear? Are the upper and lower lips proportionate? After identifying the problem, we can advise the client on the best method to achieve fuller lips. Injection with hyaluronic acid, collagen, or autologous fat can add dimension to the lips and improve the contours. Each method has its own advantages and disadvantages. Autologous fat injection may be difficult to control, while collagen injection has a shorter-lasting effect. Hyaluronic acid injection, on the other hand, tends to produce a more natural result with fewer side effects, making it more popular.

Injecting hyaluronic acid into different parts of the lips can yield different results. Injecting into the main body of the lips can make them fuller, injecting into the lip lines can make them clearer, injecting into the corners of the lips can make them more upturned, and injecting into the edges can reduce fine lines. Lip symmetry and uniformity are important factors to consider during lip injection. It requires a high level of skill and precision. Readers who are interested in lip injection should consult with a medical professional.
