Fans speculated that Jessica Simpson got lip injections after she posted a snap on Instagram on September 15, showing off her plump, red lips. We asked expert plastic surgeons their opinions. See what they had to say.
Did Jessica Simpson, 34, get work done? Her lips appeared fuller in a Sept. 15 snap, compared to a Honeymoon selfie she posted back in July. We reached out to multiple plastic surgeons, who all agree it looks like she’s had volumizer injected into her lips! What do YOU think?
Jessica Simpson’s Lip Fillers — Doctors Speculate On Plastic Surgery
Dr. Norman Rowe, a NYC board-certified plastic surgeon who has not treated Jessica, told HollywoodLife.com exclusively:
“Jessica definitely injected a volumizer into her lips. Especially with her recent weight loss, her lips may have become drawn and gaunt. There are a variety of lips volumizers (a.k.a. fillers) ranging from hyaluronic acid (Restylane, Juvaderm), which are naturally found in the body and maintain the effect for 9 months.
Other volumizers include silicone and even a small amount of the patient’s own fat. These fillers last much longer and give a much larger look to the lips. Jessica looks as if she had one of the hyaluronic acid fillers. There is little to no downtime and the cost begins at $750 and can go up from there depending on how big the patient may want to go to. By the way, she also needs to wear smaller earrings, or soon her earlobes will be split.”
Dr. Michael Salzhauer, leading board certified plastic surgeon in Miami, FL, says this may not be the first time Jessica has gotten work done.
“Jessica got greedy with the fillers again. I believe she injects her lips religiously. This time she might have injected more too soon or just too much at once. But don’t worry — it will go down with time.”
More Expert Opinions On Jessica Simpson
Beverly Hills Board Certified plastic surgeon Dr. William Bruno, who had not treated Jessica, told HollywoodLife.com:
“It appears her upper lip is fuller and has a more consistent shape throughout compared to the photo two months ago. This is likely due to a filler such as Juvederm, which can range from $450-600 per syringe. This procedure is done in the office in about 15-20 minutes with very minimal downtime (swelling for a few hours with minimal to no bruising). Concealer can hide bruising as well as the lipstick.”
Dr. Elan B. Singer, MD in New York adds: “Although red lipstick can give the illusion of plump lips, it does look like Jessica had her lips injected. The hyaluronic acid class of facial fillers are safe and typically last approximately 6-8 months. One common misconception is that if you get your lips injected, you’ll look like a duck. This is only true if the lips are over-injected. The more material that is injected, the plumper the lips will become; so, if only a small amount of product is used, there should only be a small change in lip volume. If patients aren’t happy with the injection, there is an enzyme that can be used to dissolve the product, so patient’s don’t even have to wait the full 6-8 months for the product to go away.”
“Wow! Her lips do seem dramatically bigger in the recent picture. It could be the very bright lipstick with lip liner or the use of a hyaluronic acid filler like Juvederm or Restylane,” says Dr. Yael Halaas, M.D., F.A.C.S.
