Actress Lisa Rinna is now waiting for her lips to heal after she decided to undergo lip reduction to remove the silicone injections in her lips.
The 47-year old actress said she is now happy with her smooth lips with no lumps, as a result of her lip reduction. She said it doesn’t matter what other people think about it.
She said she became unhappy with her plump pout after having the silicone injections in 1986.
Dr. Michael J. Will of American Association of Cosmetic Surgeons said lip reduction is not only painful but also risky. He said a patient can be left with scarring or fibrosis. He added that the lips can also get puffy and swollen.
Alternatives to lip fillers include Juvederm and Restylane which are even easier to remove if the patient changes her/his mind.
Dr. Will noted that as women grow older, their lips naturally get thinner. He said lip enhancement would be nice to bring back the thickness of the lips.
Rinna’s lips will take six months to heal and the swelling can last for weeks. Even though she feels pain after the procedure, she reveals that still fells fantastic with the more natural look.
