The Science of Beauty: What Is the Most Attractive Facial Feature?

A recent study sought out to find the answer to one of the oldest questions in the book: “Which facial feature MOST attracts people to each other?” The answer was quickly apparent.

By studying the eye movements of men meeting women for the first time, scientists discovered that in the first 10 seconds of looking at a woman, men spent on average over half that time looking at their lips. If women had larger lips, the men stared around 7.3 seconds. If women had thinner lips, the men spent 2.2 seconds on average.

Perhaps, then, it is no surprise that Angelina Jolie is considered by many to be one of the most beautiful people in the world. Her prominent pout is one of the most commonly requested features among plastic surgeons.

Think of some of the most beautiful people you know. Chances are, they have an attractive mouth.

But what if you were born with thinner lips? Not a problem! You can have fuller, natural looking lips in thirty minutes, thanks to the natural fillers I offer in the office.

Because the lips are an extremely sensitive area of the face, I numb all of my clients first with an injection of lidocaine, making the procedure completely painless. With a mirror in your hand, you can guide me in real-time to produce the effect you want to achieve without an overdone, un-natural, swollen look.

One of my favorite lip fillers is Juvederm, made of a completely natural substance called hyaluronic acid. Studies have shown that people prefer Juvederm over 90% to other fillers (such a collagen, which can be lumpy and bumpy). Its smooth, non-granular consistency makes it ideal for augmenting lips. Whether you choose to do a subtle addition on just one lip, or create a full set, Juvederm couldn’t be easier. Lasting about 8 months, it offers you the opportunity to experiment with a fuller pout. And not just that! Juvederm is also used to fill tear troughs, cheeks, jowls, and nasolabial folds. There are also other options such as Restylane, a highly successful, safe filler that lasts 6-12 months.
