Why Would Anyone Get Rid Of Their Resting Bitch Face?
A lot of women, it seems. Dr. Melissa Doft, another surgeon who does these procedures, says that “people gravitate to women who they perceive as happy,” and argues that people with an RBF “look dumpy, or unfriendly,” which means that “people are going to react to you differently.” Apparently, having an RBF also makes you look like you’ve just received some bad news: Dr. Doft says these procedures “make [patients] look less sad.”
Doft notes that the procedure involves injecting fillers into the marionette lines, “from the lip’s corners to the jawline,” and underneath the lips to “plump and re-angle [patients’] mouths.” The change is slight, according to Davis: “Nobody can quite put their finger on it, but they notice something’s different,” she says. “People have definitely complimented me saying, ‘Oh you look so pretty and cute today.'”
