Kylie Jenner Totally Has Lip Fillers and So Should You!

Last Modified: August 3, 2022

If you love Kylie Jenner, chances are you love her plump, pouty lips!

The Lip Kit mogul wasn't born with this pucker, however. She's had them enhanced with lip fillers.

The coolest thing about Kylie is that she owns it by admitting to her lip fillers and rocking them, (rather than trying to pull one over on us).

And girl, they look great, so why not own it!

If you love lips like Kylie Jenner's and are thinking about getting lip filler yourself, this is the perfect article for you! Read on for everything you need to know if you're considering enhancing your look with lip fillers.

Everything You Need To Know About Lip Fillers

Any form of cosmetic enhancement, plastic surgery, or injectable is a decision you should give a fair amount of thought. It's a pretty big deal to change your appearance!

That being said- there should be nothing holding you back if you've thought it through, and you're doing it because it will make you feel happy, confident, and beautiful!

Nowadays, lip injections are not much crazier than getting a new haircut. After a minimal healing time, your lips will feel real to the touch, even while kissing.

We say, go for it!

How Long Do Lip Fillers Last?

Dermal fillers last for about 4 to 6 months.

Most lip fillers are made of hyaluronic acid (HA). Since HA is a naturally occurring substance in the body, you will absorb the HA over time. This process will be faster for those with a faster metabolism.

How Much Do Lip Fillers Cost?

Lip filler costs around £250 per 1ml. The total cost is determined by how much of the dermal filler is used.

So, the thinner your lips are to start with and the bigger you want them to end up has a large effect on how much it'll end up costing you.

Keep in mind that if you want to maintain this look, you'll adding this cost to your budget every 6 months or so.

How To Find the Right Doctor

You don't want to mess around when it comes to getting substances injected into your face!

Make sure you find a GMC (General Medical Counsel) registered doctor in the UK, or a similar qualification if you live in a different country.

You want to know that your doctor will not only have a full training in the medical aspects of fillers but also have an eye for the aesthetic you're going for.

Check out their before and after photos, patient testimonials, and reviews. You can also hop on over to Youtube and look for informative experiences of former patients.

Check out the many different lip shapes out there and consider what would look best with your facial features. A great doctor will be able to guide you through this process and help you get the best results.

Before & After Care

Once you find the right GMC certified doctor to do your lip fillers and make your appointment, be sure to take their instruction on any before appointment prep and care.

For example, your doctor may tell you not to wear makeup the day of your appointment or you may need someone with you to drive you home from your appointment.

Also, avoid exercise, facials, or anything else that will increase blood flow in your face the day of your injections.

After your injections, you'll want to be gentle on your lips as the filler settles. No hardcore make out sessions right after, you could ruin the shape!

What If I Hate Them?!

If you change your mind about the lip fillers or something about them looks wonky, don't fret! HA fillers are reversible. You can get an "antidote" injected that dissolves the fillers in about 5 minutes.

You can also rest assured that if you decide not to repeat the procedure after the lip fillers start to fade away, your lips will return to their normal state. Injections done correctly will not leave any permanent trace.

If you're not sure how big you want to go, we recommend starting somewhat subtle and working your way up to the more extreme looks. This will help the transition look more natural.

Remember that your lips will be swollen for about the first 24 hours after the procedure so don't freak out if they look too duck-faced at first! You'll start to see what the results will really look like after the swelling subsides the next day.

Be Ready For the Gross Out Factor

Getting lip injections isn’t pain, or blood free. Let’s talk about the nitty gritty of it for a second to make sure you know what you’re getting into.

You will experience some pain, but most doctors have several techniques to minimise this, such as numbing gels, numbing injections, cool air blasters, and good old fashioned ice packs.

The needle going into your lips will feel like a pinch, and the filler injection will sting somewhat. Talk to your doctor about your pain tolerance to get the best numbing solution for you.

Anywhere on your face is bound to bleed a lot because there are several blood vessels close to the surface of the skin.

Even though it may seem counterintuitive, avoid taking painkillers the day of your appointment because they can thin the blood. This will make your lips more likely to bruise and bleed.

Some bruising at the injection site is normal. It should go away within five to seven days.

Now You Know!

You too can have full, sexy lips like Kylie Jenner!

Lip injections, when done correctly by a legitimate doctor, are relatively low risk. If you know you'd love having a prettier pucker, you should go for it!

Confidence has to start on the inside, but there's nothing wrong with tailoring your appearance to whatever makes you feel most beautiful.

Embrace the look you want and don't forget to own it like Kylie! Rock that pout with pride.
