To be honest, lip injections have always been on my list—you know what I’m talking about, those beauty treatments and procedures that you’d totally love to try in theory, but never actually go forward with. But now that cosmetic injections are at an all-time high (the Zoom effect is very real, ppl) and everyone and their mother seems to be giving filler a try, I’ve started to become v attached to the idea of getting fuller, plumper lips.
But here’s the thing: Even though lip injections are becoming wildly popular, it’s important to remember that it’s still a very real procedure with very real risks when done incorrectly. That’s why I caught up with two New York City-based dermatologists, Shereene Idriss, MD, and Lesley Rabach, MD, to get all the info on getting your lips done for the first time. Keep scrolling for everything you should expect, including the cost (spoiler: lip filler doesn’t come cheap!), the pain, and bc I love you, the before-and-after pics that will maybe, definitely convert you.
