Beautiful Lips

Beautiful lips are not just about size, it’s also about the shape. The image attached show beautiful lips, both pouty and not so pouty. Focus on the upper lip shape. The curl, or ‘cupid’s bow’ is the hallmark of the beautiful upper lip. That arch, allows for something called ‘incisor show at repose’. Not the sexiest terminology, but it does characterize what almost every billboard in Hollywood portrays. Incisor show at repose means you can see a couple of centimeters of the upper central teeth with the lips parted. This is lost with age as the lip elongates. In fact, as the mouth ages, the LOWER teeth become apparent at rest with the lips parted! Take a look! Enjoy your young lips while you have them! Juvederm, restylane, perlane, and prevelle can all plump lips, but to get incisor show may require a lip lift. But make no mistake, pouty is sexy, too. So even if you don’t have a Sunset Boulevard 2 millimeters of incisor show at repose, you can still have beautiful lips!
