Has the Upper Lip Lift gone Mainstream?

Blanketing Instagram may be the pout of the moment: an ample, upturned mouth revealing front pearly whites. It’s a look that has generated a fresh trend in cosmetic surgery: the lip lift. “Social media is driving a whole lot of esthetic selections,” says Andrew Jacono, a Park Avenue cosmetic surgeon, but “the voluptuous lip is not something you may get with injections. Filling lips only makes them appear to be sausages but doesn’t change their condition. Only the upper lip lift can naturally turnthe lip up and out.” The 30-minute office procedure excises tissue from just underneath the nose to shorten the distance between nose and mouth, causing the top lip to relax a bit, exposing more teeth, or “tooth show.” In Gen Z’ers and young millennials, it gives an ideal selfie pout; in older candidates, it can shave up to 7 years from the countenance ($3,000-$10,000).

As upper lips age, they elongate to eventually hide the upper teeth, while lower lips drop to expose the bottom teeth. Beverly Hills plastic surgeon Randal Haworth says lips, like breasts, go over time south. “When Angelina [Jolie] was 19, she had an insouciant mouth and had the Bardot upper tooth exposure ,” he says. “Nowadays her lip is starting to hide her teeth. It is the same with Jane Fonda.” Jacono offers that face-lifts improve the corners of the mouth but don’t address the problem: “Shortening the top lip is probably the most effective esthetic procedures I really do.”

Some surgeons will work with dentists to coordinate how much teeth to show.

“Showing 2 millimeters of tooth while you are at rest is ideal,says Manhattan esthetic dental professional Lana Rozenberg, who claims patients once requested heavier veneers to push away the lip for pout.

Now the Bugs Rabbit look can’t be avoided can be avoided, with surgeons just like NYC’s Oren Tepper working with esthetic dentist Jonathan Levine to open LipSync. “Ten years past, there was an ‘aha’ moment when hands were an era giveaway. Now we realize the mouth is a lot more telling, ” says Tepper.

There is one disadvantage to a lip lift; its scar. “You can hide part of the incision inside the nostrils, but there is usually always some visibility at the bottom edge of the nasal area, ” says Beverly Hills cosmetic surgeon Leif Rogers, adding “If not done properly, it can change the look of the nose. “

Dr. Haworth acknowledged this as a problem about 15 years ago, ever since patients began complaining of this subtle nasal change. He realized there were two factors playing a part in this:

  1. Excess tension around the incision line where the upper lip attaches to the nose and …
  2. When the incision is made into the nose in a good faith attempt to hide the scar.

This led him to evolve his methods as a necessity to meet the increasingly discerning tastes of his patients. “Cutting into the nasal still can be a disaster even though it is motivated by goodwill towards the patients. By cutting into the nose, it breaks the circular stability of the nostril itself thus allowing it to “unfurl” and migrate inferiorly.

Another thing I have discovered is that when a lip lift is performed, it mustn’t just resist the downward forces of gravity but it must also resist the hundreds of thousands of mouth movements that occur per day. That’s why I needed to develop the OOS Upper Lip Lift which involves securing the upper lip to the strong lining of the bone around the base of the nose (periosteum). This technique is clearly superior to any skin-only lip lift whether it is modified or not. This results in a superior results in terms of beauty, scarring, lack of nasal distortion and longevity.

REVEALED: Shane Warne, 49, debuts his whopping ’15kg weight loss’ – achieved via a series of VERY unorthodox methods

Spin king Shane Warne, 49, has lost a whopping 15 kilograms by following a number of unorthodox methods.

Woman’s Day magazine reported on the father-of-three’s impressive achievement on Monday, breaking down the cricket legend’s keys to success.

According to the publication, Shane credits alternative wellness products, fasting, and even Channel Nine personality Eddie McGuire, for his slim-down.

Slim Spin king! Shane Warne, 49, has lost a whopping 15 kilograms by following a number of unorthodox methods 

The retired icon reportedly underwent a dramatic fasting diet inspired by friend Eddie McGuire’s ‘101 Wellbeing’ Program. 

He has also been indulging in detoxifying Chinese green tea and a ‘liquid herbal supplement,’ the magazine reports.

Shane’s weight has fluctuated dramatically over the years, with a significant weight gain back in 2017 the last to be widely reported on.

Alternative wellness! According to a new report, Shane is using detoxifying Chinese green tea and a ‘liquid herbal supplement’ to shed the kilos. (L) In 2017. (R) Last week 

Shane openly joked about his weight at the time  – notably during an idyllic vacation with his children in Spain.

‘Auditioning for the Baywatch with big bellies movie hahah,’ part of his post read. 

But weight loss isn’t the only well documented cosmetic struggle the retiree has encountered over the years.

It’s long been speculated that Shane dabbled in cosmetic surgery, including injectibles such as Botox and filler.

Speaking to Daily Mail Australia in July last year, Beverly Hills cosmetic surgeon Dr. Randal Haworth suspected he had enlisted a little help.  

‘I suspect that he has dabbled with Botox and perhaps some fillers here and there,’ he exclusively told Daily Mail Australia.

‘While women’s faces tend to look younger and softer with the right amount of fat, men’s faces tend to look better with weight loss,’ he said. 

 

A little help? But weight loss isn’t the only well documented cosmetic struggle the retiree has encountered over the years – Shane has long been accused of cosmetic work

 

‘Shane’s is no exception – his face has become more chiseled, defined and handsome,’ he added.   

Shane has always denied all allegations of cosmetic surgery, with one such denial airing on I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! in 2016. 

 ‘Everyone says, “look what Warne’s done to his face. What’s he done to his head? Lay off the Botox. Get rid of the facelifts. He’s had fillers” and I’m like if I wanted to have some, I would have no issue and if someone asked, I’d say, ‘Yep, I’ve had some. But until then…”‘ 

Rumour has it: He previously sparked surgery speculation when he appeared to have undergone a major physical transformation while dating Elizabeth Hurley (R) 

‘How many facelifts has he had?’ Fans accuse Alex Perry of having MORE plastic surgery – as he looks noticeably puffy on The Kyle and Jackie O Show

Fashion designer Alex Perry has made no secret of the fact he relies on fillers and Botox to achieve his unique appearance.

And during an interview with The Kyle and Jackie O Show on Monday, the 56-year-old raised eyebrows when he displayed a noticeably puffy visage.

After in-studio footage was shared to Instagram, KIIS FM listeners soon began accusing Alex of overdoing the cosmetic work and having one too many ‘facelifts’.

‘How many facelifts has he had?’ one fan asked, prompting another to comment: ‘He looks like an old sock.’

It comes after a leading plastic surgeon accused the fashionista of ‘excessive’ use of anti-wrinkle injections last year. 

Dr. Randal Haworth observed that Alex looks remarkably different in before and after photos and may have taken things too far. 

The Beverly Hills-based surgeon also claimed that Alex’s face now looks rather ‘crowded’ as a result of ‘too much’ filler.

‘There is no denying that Mr. Perry has undergone significant change to his countenance,’ Dr. Haworth said at the time.

‘Compared to his younger self, his face is now “crowded”, making his eyes appear smaller and closer set.

‘Most likely, a generous recipe of injected filler and more than a drizzle of Botox in and around his forehead, brows and temples contributed to this look.’

‘Compared to his younger self, his face is now crowded’: Last year, plastic surgeon Dr. Randal Haworth criticised Alex’s ‘excessive’ use of Botox and fillers. Pictured left: Alex in March 2002, and right:in September 2017

‘Additionally, his mid-face (the area between his lower eyes and upper lip) has been amply plumped to attain the “apple cheek”, a feature I feel is best left flatter in men,’ he added.

Dr. Haworth went on to say that it’s hard to determine whether Alex’s cosmetic work is permanent or temporary.

‘Hopefully the fillers used to obtain Mr. Perry’s current look are absorbable and therefore temporary,’ he said. ‘However, if fat was used (which is a permanent, living filler) his options, unfortunately, will be more limited.

Alex, whose celebrity fans include Rihanna and Kim Kardashian, told Yahoo Lifestyle in 2013 that he is not ashamed of using fillers and Botox.

‘There is nothing not real, there are a few fillers and there is a bit of Botox but that’s that. That’s normal, right?… It’s all real. It’s all real,’ he said.

In 2016, the Australia’s Next Top Model judge was criticised for his appearance by one of the show’s contestants, Kassidy Ure.

After Alex criticised one of her photos, she sniped back: ‘At least my lips are real!’

‘What’s happened to her face?’ The Voice fans accuse Delta Goodrem, 34, of getting cosmetic work – after she displayed a VERY plump pout and smooth skin on launch night

She has refused to comment on plastic surgery speculation over the years.

But Delta Goodrem came under scrutiny yet again on Sunday, when viewers accused The Voice coach of undergoing ‘cosmetic work’ after seeing her on launch night. 

Fans flocked to Twitter to claim that the 34-year-old singer has had ‘too much work’ done to her face, with one person observing she has a fuller top lip.

‘Delta has had more work done. Can’t work it out… she doesn’t need to do anything she’s beautiful!’ another added. 

‘Top lip? Was thinking that,’ wrote a third eagle-eyed fan, before somebody else asked: ‘What happened to Delta’s face? #toomuchworknow.’

Speculation: Bewildered fans flocked to Twitter after Sunday’s episode of The Voice to claim that Delta ‘has had more work done’

It’s not the first time Delta has sparked cosmetic surgery speculation. 

Last year, a leading plastic surgeon speculated that the Born To Try hitmaker may have invested in some cosmetic tweaks over the years.

Dr. Randal Haworth told Daily Mail Australia he had a ‘strong hunch’ Delta may have undergone a rhinoplasty, as well as cheek and lip fillers.

Claims: Last year, a leading plastic surgeon claimed that Delta may have undergone a nose job in addition to cheek and lip fillers. Pictured left: on The Voice, and right: in April 2003

‘Certain angles may be more revealing than others, but I have a strong hunch she has undergone a rhinoplasty because the shape of her tip is more demarcated from the rest of her nose while her bridge is noticeably narrowed,’ he said at the time.

‘These are the types of characteristics that would make any plastic surgeon suspicious,’ he added. 

Dr. Haworth also believes the songstress may have indulged in some other non-surgical cosmetic procedures.

Hmm! ‘I find it apparent that both her cheekbones and her lips have been enhanced with a temporary filler,’ Dr. Randal Haworth said. Pictured left: on The Voice, and right: in 2003

He claimed Delta’s full cheeks and plump pout could be the result of temporary filler.

‘I find it apparent that both her cheekbones and her lips have been enhanced with a temporary filler, most likely of a hyaluronic acid variety such as Juvéderm or Restylane,’ he said.

‘Celebrities with busy schedules oftentimes can’t afford the recovery time needed to undergo fat transfer for more permanent results,’ he explained.

Daily Mail Australia has contacted Delta Goodrem’s management for comment. 

Could it be? Delta sparked speculation with her plump lips and incredibly smooth complexion 

Married At First Sight’s Jessika Power looks like a human Barbie doll as she poses in racy lingerie… after splashing out $25,000 on cosmetic treatments

She recently confessed to spending $25,000 in a cosmetic surgery binge.

And Married At First Sight’s Jessika Power looked like a human Barbie doll in a video shared to Instagram on Tuesday night.

The 27-year-old flaunted her plump lips and hourglass figure in throwback footage from her recent NW magazine photo shoot.

Posing in the makeup chair, the platinum blonde bombshell cast a sultry gaze at the camera before revealing her lacy white lingerie. 

On Monday, Jessika confirmed she had spent $25,000 on a new set of veneers, two rounds of dental work, cheek and lip fillers, Botox and a brow lift.

After undergoing the cosmetic procedures in quick succession, she looks almost unrecognisable today compared to photos taken just a few years ago.

She told NW magazine that relentless trolling about her appearance on MAFS left her feeling ‘shaken to the core’. 

‘I’m a confident girl, but having thousands of people criticise me each day has shaken me to the core. I felt like I had heaps wrong with me afterwards,’ she said.

The Perth-born model added that she felt insecure about her looks partly because of the man she was previosuly dating: Daniel Webb.


‘I felt like I had heaps wrong with me’: Jessika told NW magazine that constant trolling about her appearance during MAFS made her feel ugly and insecure

‘Dan’s exes were all beautiful, including a Playboy bunny. I looked at pictures of her, then looked at myself and thought, “I look boring”,’ she confessed.

‘He would get Botox done on his forehead too and I felt I had to keep up with him.’

While Jessika is clearly pleased with her new look, not everybody is impressed.

My, how you’ve changed! Jessika was no stranger to cosmetic procedures before her debut on MAFS, having already undergone lip fillers. Pictured left: in 2017, and right: in 2018

Earlier this week, Beverly Hills-based plastic surgeon Dr. Randal Haworth said that Jessika’s excessively filled pout ‘resembles a baboon’s bottom in heat’.

‘Instead of enhancing facial sensuality, overly plumped lips tend to do the opposite and even age the face in a strange way,’ Dr. Haworth told Daily Mail Australia.

‘Jessika’s exaggerated lips only serve to distract from her natural beauty.’


She’s not finished yet! As for Jessika’s next procedures, she revealed that a non-surgical nose job and lipo-sculpture on her thighs and buttocks are next on the list. Pictured in April 2019

‘Their lips are preposterously out of proportion!’ MAFS brides Jessika Power and Ines Basic ‘are destroying their looks with facial fillers’, says a leading cosmetic surgeon

A renowned plastic surgeon has delivered a withering assessment of this year’s Married At First Sight stars, saying they are too dependent on fillers.

Beverly Hills-based Dr. Randal Haworth says the latest crop of brides have ‘over-inflated lips’ that sit uncomfortably with their faces and ‘don’t do them any favours’.

Speaking exclusively to Daily Mail Australia, the CEO of DrHaworth.com also claimed that reality TV stars more generally are sending a harmful message to young fans by excessively plumping up their features.

‘Their lips are preposterously out of proportion!’ MAFS brides Jessika Power and Ines Basic ‘are destroying their looks with facial fillers’, says a leading cosmetic surgeon. Pictured left: Jessika pre-2017, and right: in 2019

After being shown before-and-after photos of Jessika Power, Martha Kalifatidis and Ines Basic, Dr. Haworth didn’t hold back.

‘Like a loud out-of-tune instrument in an otherwise beautiful orchestra, these over-inflated lips resemble baboon bottoms in heat and do no one any favours,’ he said.

Speaking about reality stars generally, he said there is a risk they are projecting unrealistic beauty standards on to a young generation of women. 

He added: ‘As a renowned lip reshaping expert, I can say it is not just the lips, but also the surgically and “filter enhanced” faces and bodies that send a bad message to young people. It breeds insecurity and bland conformity whereby everyone starts to look the same.’

Several MAFS contestants, including single mother Susie Bradley, have admitted to using off-the-shelf lip fillers, such as Juvéderm.

In photos taken before their cosmetic transformations, the reality stars are almost unrecognisable compared to how they look today.

But Dr. Haworth believes that facial fillers have not necessarily improved or complemented the brides’ natural features.

‘Instead of enhancing facial sensuality, overly plumped lips tend to do the opposite and even age the face in a strange way,’ he observed.

‘The exaggerated lips of Jessika only serve to distract from her natural beauty’: Dr. Haworth told Daily Mail Australia that ‘overly plumped lips tend to age the face in a strange way’. Pictured: Jessika before and after having lip fillers

He added: ‘For example, the exaggerated lips of Jessika only serve to distract from her natural beauty, while the lips of Martha just draw attention to her other churlish facial plastic surgery, including her rhinoplasty.’

Dr. Haworth went on to say that ‘so-called practitioners’ of cosmetic enhancements are allowing ‘their own aesthetic judgment to be hijacked by social media influencers’ and reality stars like the Kardashians.

‘This [fixation] encourages tunnel vision in doctors and nurse injectors alike, focusing only on lip volume and not on shape,’ he said.

Speaking to NW magazine on Monday, Jessika confirmed she has spent $25,000 on her cosmetic transformation so far – and has no plans to slow down. 

Last month, Ines also admitted she has been getting lip fillers ‘for years’. 

Furthermore, Martha has acknowledged having Botox and facial fillers in addition to undergoing a rhinoplasty and breast enlargement.
