Women are forking out up to £4,000 for Kardashian-style plump pouts.
Harley Street plastic surgeon Dr Riccardo Frati said more women are opting for the ‘lip lift’ over fillers as it is more permanent.
The treatment removes skin between the nose and upper lip and is an alternative to fillers.
He said patients opting for the painless procedure – which doesn’t leave a scar – want fuller lips like reality TV star Kim Kardashian and her sister Kylie Jenner.
Dr Frati said: “The procedure increases the size of the lip itself without using filler. This is quite a recent technique and it’s an office-based procedure.
“The incision will be placed at the base of the nose, so the scar is very well hidden under the base of the nose.
“And there will be just a removal of a little tissue underneath the nose.
“It will change your philtrum and make it shorter.
“This is going to give a plumping effect with the lips which is going to make you look fresh and youthful.”
It involves removing just millimetres of tissue in the philtrum – the small indent between the bottom of your nose and upper lip.
At Dr Frati’s clinic, the procedure costs between £3,000 to £4,000.
It is done in the office under a local anesthetic – leaving you free to walk in out with a newly plumped pout on the same day.
Dr Frati said: “This is the most common procedure for us along with injections.”
