Dr. Horowitz's Latest Thoughts...

In Defense of Lip Injections.

[fa icon="calendar"] December 17, 2016 / by Dr.J

I try not to get involved in celebrity gossip, and far be it for me to question the authority of someone with 15.9 million followers on Instagram (compared to my 145), but I have to take exception to Huda Kattan's characterization of lip augmentation in this recent Allure article.

The beauty blogger is apparently not a fan of lip injections. She claims her injector "literally ruined my lips" and her lip filler experience was "the worst thing she has ever done".

With respect to Huda..It looks like her lips survived the experience and are still very attractive.



For those women not lucky enough to have naturally beautiful lips like Huda, lip injections are a wonderful way to augment and shape the lips.  The procedure is done under topical anesthesia and produces soft, natural results like those below in our recent patient.  She underwent injection a total of one syringe of Juvederm Ultra Plus XC to the upper and lower lips and is thrilled with her results.



Regarding Huda's  claims that her injector "literally ruined her lips", keep in mind that Juvederm filler can be dissolved away completely in the unlikely event that the patient is unhappy.  I'm not sure why Huda was so unhappy with her results, but it may have something to do with the fact that she sells makeup designed to make lips look bigger....just sayin'.
