Every year, groups including the American Society of Plastic Surgeons release figures about the most popular cosmetic treatments. Often, Long Island plastic surgeons like to jump the gun a bit and make predictions about their patients' preferences in the year to come.
Whatever nips and tucks are the most sought out in 2014, one thing is for sure, though: Looking young is an enduring obsession. Unfortunately, doing so isn't just a matter of smoothing out wrinkles covering up dark spots. At Marotta Aesthetics & Laser, we understand that reversing signs of aging is a multi-faceted process. Volume loss, reduced skin elasticity, hyperpigmentation, sun damage and other factors all contribute to an aged appearance. In addition, many women (and men) notice that their lips start to thin, transforming what may have been their favorite feature into a lackluster line.
Adopting a bold shade of lipstick or getting a bit overzealous with lip liner may spring to mind as initial attempts to counter lip thinning, but these remedies don't have lasting power. Instead, the industry news outlet Skin Inc notes that lip injections are gaining popularity as a way to reverse this aspect of getting older.
"Gone are the days where lips are overfilled and inflated with collagen a la Goldie Hawn in 'The First Wives' Club.' Now, facial plastic surgeons have mastered the fine art of lip enhancement and can achieve natural, subtle, soft and kissable results," the source states.
