She admits that she became a little obsessed with changing her lips, and that she may have gone too far in the beginning.
"When you first get them done, you're like, 'Oh, it could be a little bit bigger on that side.' I'd go back and be like, 'They went down' and think they could be bigger. But I went too far. It was very painful."
But she is comfortable with her decision now.
"At the end of the day I have to live with everything I do. I'm just proud of myself for not going crazy."
Top Things To Consider When Getting Lip Fillers
We spoke to the Director of Clinical Services at Total Face Group, Jane Fielding, to get an expert's advice on lip fillers. She suggested these tips for women considering lip fillers:
- Choose a medical group/practice dedicated to the field of cosmetic medicine with highly experienced clinicians where both the doctors and nurses work together.
- Before having a treatment, make sure you have a consultation
- Consider the look you are after - a fuller or soft, natural lip?
Ms Fielding explained that though traditionally, lip fillers were targeted as an anti-ageing procedure, the 20 - 35 year old age group now makes up 35% of the market. Total Face Group conducted research of 500 women earlier this year that showed that women in the 20-29 age group were twice as likely to consider the procedure than other age groups. The no. 1 reason for having a cosmetic treatment was to 'boost self-esteem and confidence' closely followed by the desire to 'look better'.
Ms Fielding suggested that much of this change in demographic has been influenced by trends on social media.
