The fuller look is so pervasive that it’s easy to forget that it takes needles, a talented doctor and hundreds of dollars to get the look.
Not sure you want to go through the pain? Brielle Biermann, the daughter of reality star Kim Zolciak, recently shared a video of her lip enhancement on Instagram — and yes, it looks painful.
“My lips are my biggest insecurity and I’m so happy w my results now!” she captioned the clip. “You truly are the best! even though I hate needles you made this very easy!”
The “you” she is referring to is cosmetic dermatologist Dr. Simon Ourian, the same guy responsible for Jenner’s look. “I do micro-droplets, which distribute minute amounts of product,” he told ELLE, regarding how he creates a uniform look without lumps and bumps.
While the technique has improved since the over-inflated fish lips of yore, there are still dangers of trying to rush things. Ourian recommends spacing out injections and “not [doing] everything in one session so it’s done once a week, twice a week, once a month.”
“Respect the anatomy of the lip. You cannot make someone’s lips look completely different,” he told ELLE, adding that his favorite fillers are Juvederm, followed by Restylane and Voluma. “If you want to have something that lasts a bit longer, choose Voluma. If you want something that lasts a few months, choose Juvederm.”
