It seems Kylie Jenner isn’t the only one who is over big lips — the latest plastic surgery trend filling our feeds is all about achieving a smaller pout.
The spike in popularity has mostly been seen across Asian countries, where young people between the ages of 20 and 30 are requesting lip reduction surgery.
It is not a new procedure; social media has just seemingly made it more accessible, just like it did lip injections.
According to Thailand-based dermatologist Dr. Nuttae Nuttapon, the popularity of the procedure is due to thin lips being associated with western beauty.
The procedure, usually performed by a plastic surgeon, involves surgically cutting at the wet-dry line of the lip, and pulling the lip underneath, inside the mouth, to reduce its volume. Yikes!
