Would you have lip implant surgery?

United States
April 22, 2016 6:43am CST
It's big business, it's being done by women of all ages. If you don't like your lips there is a solution, have lip implant surgery. There was a woman on the news this morning, she had been a model and she was beautiful. But she thought her lips were too thin so she went with lip implant surgery. Now she says she is very happy. It makes her feel like she is younger. She is not alone - there were over 27,000 lip implant surgeries in the last year....one every 20 minutes. Would you have lip transplant surgery?
Last year marked a record number of lip implants in the United States, according to data released this week from the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS).

No way, a surgery is a surgery, even a small thing can turn wrong. I keep mine.

@AbbyGreenhill If they look a bit thin, we can always play with the lipstick, no need to spend money on surgery.

Nope. Not me. And now I have all these 'duck face' profile photos in my head...why can't people just be satisfied with what they have?

You know how women are, improve, update, add to or take away - it's always something. We can't see your lips in your photo LOL!

Me neither, and why go under anesthetic when you don't have to.

@AbbyGreenhill well I already do that, nothing is perfect, but being able to not need nearly as much correction, or have 'could go blind unless you wear these horrible uncomfie contacts EVERY day' hanging over my head to go away would also be nice

@Jessicalynnt I wore contacts for years, but when we quite work I found myself only putting them in 3 days a week, which was a big waste of money - so I went back to glasses...and glasses it will be, they don't bother me in the least.

Honestly , I wouldn't have any cosmetic surgery, I am by all means not perfect, and could surely use any help, However, I am not willing to take a risk on my face, or deal with pain. This woman I used to work with was beautiful, but she got the bright idea of getting a face lift. Her daughter was getting married, so she wanted to look good. ( she already did) Well guess what her face is messed up, her eyes are pulled up way to high and her forehead stays very read, she looks so unnatural now.

There is no way I'd have this done - or any other sort of collagen implant. Have you seen photos of the ones that went wrong? That's enough to put me off big-time.

@AbbyGreenhill Almost all the celebrities are very attractive even if not maybe beautiful. Why they want to go and tamper with their body beats me.

No I sure wouldn't, I have seen some of those lip implants and it looks like they laid a huge slug on their lips. Yikes another plastic surgery gone bad.

The girl on the news - her lips were tiny so the implants didn't make them huge...but I think they have several sizes.

@AbbyGreenhill It's really a shame people can't just be happy with what they have. Crazy if you ask me. To voluntarily go under the knife is just nuts to me.

It is becoming rampant for women population to have this kind of procedure. I think in South Korea, it is common to undergo all types of cosmetic surgery.

If they have the money to pay for it - since I would bet insurance doesn't pay.

Whatever trips your ticket I guess. After seeing what Lisa R. did to hers I couldn't see doing it. Never had a problem with thin lips so I guess I am lucky. People must feel lie they are coming out of the recession we were in and can afford such things again.Or,maybe Lisa R. being on the Housewives got people going. I notice she had hers reduced.

She looks better since she went smaller. The girl on TV was a model so I guess it's part of what earns her a living.
