Abstract

As part of our #EthicsinAesthetics campaign, we are considering the enhancements we see in this sector and promoting the natural enhancement of patients' features, rather than drastically changing their appearance. In this article, Amy Miller and Meaghan Detterman consider the enhancement of the lips, and ask: when does the exquisite become excessive?It is said that beauty is in the eye of the beholder, and it is certainly true that there is no single definition of what ‘beauty’ is. Lip enhancement treatments continue to rise in popularity, and much of the time this procedure is able to naturally enhance the patient's own beauty and bring balance to the face. However, in the aesthetics sector, we sometimes see trends towards a ‘false’ appearance emerging, and many practitioners will receive requests from patients who are actively seeking an unnatural or ‘false’ look. This article explores the issue of dealing with a patient who is requesting unnatural augmentation of the lips, and provides some advice on how to deal with this difficult situation.
