This Mom and Daughter Duo Got Lip Filler | The Plastics | Harper's BAZAAR
Watch A Mother and Daughter Get Lip Injections Together
Lips lose collagen as they age, making them appear smaller and less plump. But some of us never had full lips to begin with, and that's where lip filler comes in. In this episode of The Plastics, BAZAAR's Senior Beauty Editor Jenna Rosenstein and her mom Beth visit Dr. Constantino Mendieta, a board-certified plastic surgeon in Miami, to get lip injections together.
"Jenna and Beth came in for probably one of the most popular non-surgical procedures that we have, and that's lip augmentation," says Dr. Mendieta. "In the practice you'll see a variety of things like friends that come in together, sisters that come in together, mother-daughters are a big, popular group."
Dr. Mendieta addressed each of their issues individually, even though they were sharing an appointment. "If you look at Jenna, Jenna's upper lip is very, very thin—paper-thin. her lower lip is a little bit fuller, so she needs a lot of volume to really plump up that lip," he noted. On Beth, Dr. Mendieta wanted to address some of the collagen breakdown along her vermillion border, which is common with age, but not change her lip size dramatically. At the end of the day, good work is the kind you don't even notice.
After numbing their lips with cream and then a shot, the doctor began to expertly inject hyaluronic acid filler into the lips while Beth and Jenna held hands. Though the process looks gruesome, swelling only lasts for a few days. There are risks of bruising and infection with any kind of injection, so be sure to talk about the side effects of injectables with your doctor before bringing your mom or daughter along for the ride with you.
Watch above to see how their lips looked after the procedure. Catch more episodes of The Plastics only on BAZAAR.com and BAZAAR's Youtube and Facebook channels.
