Kylie Jenner to Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, a trend – shift towards natural looking lips: Dr Monica Kapoor
Mumbai: Meghan Markle has always managed to be the inspiration for uncountable women around, sometimes it’s for unmatchable talent while the other times it’s her irresistible looks. At the moment, her lips are catching eyeballs across the world as it gives highly desirable and perfectly proportioned pout. Well-known celebrity cosmetic surgeon Dr. Monica Kapoor, in fact, revealed the increase in the number of women, demanding lips like that of Meghan.
She mentions, “Many women come to me every week for lip enhancement procedure. Most of them want to change the shape of their lips like that of their favorite celebrity. Until 2017, Kylie Jenner’s lips appealed and influenced people to undergo cosmetic lip treatment. Girls used to come with the picture of Kylie on their mobile, willing to get fuller and plumper lips like her in order to have that perfect pout”.
“The trends are changing and women are asking lips more like Meghan Markle or our very own Aishwarya Rai Bachchan wherein the looks are more natural and less pouty.” she added.
Explaining how these social influencers are setting a benchmark for beauty, Dr. Monica stated, “the common factors in the lips of both these stars Meghan or Aishwarya Rai are that their lower lips are slightly bigger than the upper lip, very prominent cupid’s bow thereby making it desirable. Tapering corners makes it look proportionate with other facial features like eyes, nose, and lips, hence complementing the overall facial beauty.”
“In Kylie Jenner lip type, the lips are more plump and fuller. Both upper and lower lips are almost of the same size and the cupid’s bow is negligible. Such lips stand out giving a perfect pout. But sometimes they don’t look proportionate with other facial features and the lips look odd giving the DUCK-LIP appearance. Lips should always be in proportion to other features to give harmony to beauty,” Dr. Kapoor explains.
Stating the technical side of the lip augmentation procedure, Dr. Kapoor stated, “In order to have lips like Aishwarya Rai Bachchan or Meghan Markle the Hyaluronic acid dermal fillers are the most popular and safer treatment to reshape or augment the lips. Hyaluronic acid is the natural substance injected into the lips to have desired results. It’s a lunchtime procedure and the results can last for almost one year. Also, with ‘dermal fillers’ one can also accentuate only the borders of the lips so as to have shape enhancement.”
She also shows her concern that the procedure should be done by a well-trained doctor in this field, otherwise it can turn out to be a disaster for face beauty.
