I Got Fillers!
According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, soft tissue fillers have enjoyed a 298% increase in popularity since 2000. Last year, almost 60,000 dudes received hyaluronic acid injections. But the filler conversation is changing. The objective of hyaluronic injections has long been volume—bigger is better for lips in particular—but doctors like Doft are trying to combat that. “For me, it’s about shaping,” she told me. “Shaping the lip, shaping the cheek, not necessarily adding volume.” In that way, good fillers are like getting a tattoo: Instead of drunkenly wandering in and ordering the butterfly, you should work with the professional, hashing out exactly what you want over a period of time.
