Why More Americans Want Lip Surgery


Nearly 27,500 patients who went under the knife to get lip implants in 2015, according to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS). These silicone implants are inserted into the lip, a bit different from needle injections, like Botox.

Since 2000, lip implant surgery has increased 48 percent in the United States. Today, there's a person undergoing the procedure about every 19 minutes.

That doesn't even take into account the people getting temporary lip injectables, like Kylie Jenner.

Those type of injections and fillers have increased by 1,000 percent over the past 15 years, according to the ASPS.

"A woman may not be ready to take the dive in doing something with her eyelids or a face lift, but those subtle things of easing a few wrinkles, puffing up the lips a little bit that sometimes is an entry point for women into cosmetic surgery," Dr. Robert Houser said.

And it seems like these days that patients are going for a more natural look.

In fact, after surveying more than 1,000 women the ASPS found the most in-demand celebrity lips are those of Jennifer Lawrence, Scarlett Johansson and Jennifer Garner.

While celebs with plumper pouts, like Beyonce and Lisa Rinna, were less envied.

"There's been a lot of bad lips done in the past, and there's a stigma that was associated with lip augmentation over the last 20 to 30 years. ... We're looking for more subtle, more soft, natural results than we had in the past," Houser said.

Perhaps that's why more men are getting plastic surgery as well.

The ASPS reports around 1,200 men got lip implants in 2015, a 400 percent increase since 2000.
