The Korean “Cherry” Lip Filler Trend
A new lip filler trend – with roots in Seoul, South Korea – has begun to make a big splash in the Detroit area. Called the Cherry Lip Filler, this sweet-sounding procedure is named in reference to the unique “cherry-like” shape it creates in the lips of its patients. The popularity of the Cherry Lip Filler marks a shift in what South Koreans look for in a lip filler.
Previously, voluminous lips inspired by those of film and beauty icons – like Angelina Jolie – were among the most sought-after among both American South Korean lip filler patients. Now, dermatologists report that South Korean patients prefer the more natural volume and dimension afforded by the Cherry Lip Filler.
In this article, we’ll unpack the details surrounding the Cherry Lip Filler, and outline how patients in the Detroit area can come to AMAE Med Spa for the newly-iconic Cherry Lip Filler, and many other aesthetic procedures.
What Is Cherry Lip Filler?
The Cherry Lip Filler technique is characterized by adding more volume to the middle areas of the lips. The end result are two areas (the middle top and middle bottom) that are noticeably plumper than the outer corners of the mouth. It is from this characteristic that the Cherry Lip Filler gets its name: the end result is said to resemble to pairs of cherries hanging horizontally from the corners of the lips.
Sociologists attribute the popularity of procedures like the Cherry Lip Filler to increased pressure felt by South Koreans to maintain a youthful appearance. The fullness afforded by the Cherry Lip Filler contributes to a youthful appearance.
Additionally, the Cherry Lip Filler procedure is said to have been popularized in part by members of K-Pop bands, such as BTS, whose fan base extends from Korea into the United States. Yes, in Korea, men are undergoing cherry lip filler procedures, too! In addition to nearly every member of BTS, dozens of other K-Pop stars show signs of having undergone the Cherry Lip Filler. And with K-Pop’s American fan base only continuing to grow, it comes as little surprise that more and more Detroit area patients are coming to AMAE Med Spa for consultations regarding the Cherry Lip Filler.
Type of Lip Filler Used for Cherry Lips
Even when performing a procedure as seemingly specific as the Cherry Lip Filler, board-certified Detroit area plastic surgeon Dr. Ali takes great care to consider the specific desired outcomes of each of his patients. Factors taken into consideration before performing a Cherry Lip Filler procedure include what specific hyaluronic acid filler will best meet the needs of the patient.
For patients who desire a more natural looking Cherry Lip Filler, Dr. Ali uses fillers such as Belotero Balance, and Juvéderm Volbella, both of which have a thinner consistency. For Cherry Lip Fillers with more noticeable volume, best results are achieved through Juvéderm and Restylane Silk.
Getting Cherry Lip Fillers Done In Detroit
It doesn’t require a trip to Korea to achieve perfect Cherry Lip Fillers – all it takes is a trip to the Detroit area AMAE Med Spa. Plenty of Detroit area women have visited board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Ali for the rounded pout that accompanies the Cherry Lip Filler procedure.
In fact, the South Korean Cherry Lip Filler trend is similar in its effect to America’s own Cupid’s Bow Lip Filler procedure. Despite the Cupid’s Bow Lip Filler giving patients a slightly more pointed top lip than the Cherry Lip Filler, both procedures implement microdroplets of filler to accentuate the V area at the center of the lips.
