Expert Speaks Out on the #KylieJennerChallenge on Buzzfeed

The Kylie Jenner Challenge: TOP 100 FAILS – BIG FAT LIPS Compilation

2015 brought us a mob of less than smart and unforgiving beauty styles, plus movements, we unfortunately cannot take back. Perhaps even one day gracing Vh1’s I Love the… (Insert decade) series as a trending topic, these social hashtags will live on in infamy.

From putting together Insta-pics of our ultimate #squadgoals to #manbuns, or conceivably the worst of them all, #KylieJennerChallenge. Although this past year people couldn’t seem to decide which part of themselves they wanted to plump more- their lips or their butts. Between the media influence and power of the salaciously controversial half-sisters, Kim Kardashian and Kylie Jenner, a new “fresh-faced” selfie queen had emerged. Initially having us believe she excelled in applying her lip-liner to design her signature look, the youngest sibling (only 17 at the time) of the reality clan notably underwent filler treatments to give her pout the “right amount” of pucker. After receiving an abundance of mass attention, no one expected impressionable young girls to take matters into their own hands in the way that they did to artificially enhance their smooch.

Highly qualified plastic surgeon, Dr. Gordon Kaplan is one of the many in his field recognizing DIY lips as major source of concern- especially in an industry which only thrives off expert techniques and proficient specialty procedures.

There are a variety of injectables and fillers which may be used based on a client’s customization, preferences and reasonable expectations. However, Dr. Kaplan reiterates the purpose is to improve facial harmony by restoring natural proportion, not just simply a tactic for making your lips huge. Not to mention the consequences should not be this alarming or extreme.

Hyaluronic acid fillers can improve the appearance of your lips by adding:

•Shape
•Structure
•Volume

The effects typically last around six months. After that more injections are needed to keep the volume of your lips. There are several hyaluronic acid fillers on the market. Among them are these products:

•Restylane, Restylane-L
•Perlane, Perlane-L
•Juvederm Ultra, Juvederm Ultra XC
•Juvederm Ultra Plus, Juvederm Ultra Plus XC
•Belotero Balance
