2020 Skincare Trend: Lip Lifts
Call it the Kylie Jenner effect all you want, but the truth is, fuller lips aren't going anywhere in 2020. The biggest difference? People will be looking for a longer-term treatment. "One in four of my patients today come into my office searching for a permanent solution to lip enhancement — from patients in their 20s to patients in their 80s," said facial plastic surgeon Andrew Jacono, MD, FACS. "My younger patients are most frequently looking for more pouty, fuller lips, which can be achieved with a stand-alone lip lift procedure done under local anesthesia."
Dermatologist Priya Nayyar, MD, agrees. "The lip lift, which is a 30-minute surgical procedure where a small incision is made right under the nose and lifts up the lip, is going to gain popularity in the new year," she said. "It yields permanent results and eliminates the need to use filler to plump up the lips."
