Angelina Jolie, Elizabeth Hurley, Megan Fox, Monica Bellucci.

What do these Hollywood actresses have in common besides being brilliant in their own right in glitzy tinsel town? These ladies all have plump, full lips, which make them highly desirable and admired.

A healthy plump pout is one of the most noticeable features in a lady's face. Who wouldn't want full, youthful-looking lips anyway? Unfortunately, as one ages, the body decreases production and circulation of collagen, the one responsible for firmer lips. This causes the lips to thin, and have unsightly lines and creases.

For those who want to restore the healthy glow on their lips, lip augmentation procedures can be carried out by qualified cosmetic surgeons. Their methods range from lip injections to lip implants, lip lifts and other surgical techniques. These treatments enhance and make lips plumper, improve lip symmetry and reduce unsightly creases around the mouth.

Lip injections are applied using natural or synthetic biocompatible fillers to keep lips luscious for several months and needs to be administered regularly. On the other hand, lip implants are inserted seamlessly within the skin and resist tissue in-growth and scarring, making it easy to remove when desired. For those with downward sloping mouths, plastic surgeons can perform lip lifts, when they make incisions to pull up the lips by shortening skin tissues in the area under the nose.

It's essential to have a close relationship with a cosmetic plastic surgeon who can help patients maintain healthier, more youthful-looking lips.
