Recent reports in the UK press have revealed that lip fillers are a trend not just for women, with an increasing amount of men now opting for this procedure. At the Pour Moi Cosmetic Clinic we have offered lip fillers in Bournemouth for many years, and are keeping track of these latest developments with keen interest.
News articles in both The Metro and Daily Mail have featured an interview with a plastic surgeon in the United States, who has noticed an uplift in men asking for “macho mouth procedures”
Dr Rian Maercks was quoted on the Daily Mail website as saying:
“It all started this year. In a matter of months, male lip fillers became one of the most popular procedures in the clinic as men are finally becoming more aware of thin lips. Social media, dating apps, selfie culture… that culture has a big part of it… even our politicians embody and celebrate narcissism – we have never been more encouraged to analyze our facial features.”
With lip fillers for men, this particular surgeon in Miami has been tweaking the base of the patient’s nose, and then plumping up the lower lip in order to create the macho mouth look.
This involves using a lip filler such as Restylane, Juvederm or Teosyal Kiss.
