Filler Face: Unnatural-looking facial features that can be the result of filler overindulgence.
Who can forget Goldie Hawn’s mega-lipped character, Elise Elliott, in The First Wives Club? She’s the perfect example of taking filler to a scary extreme and ending up resembling an exaggerated Halloween caricature of yourself.
When it comes to flirting with filler, the best philosophy is “less is more.” While a little bit of cosmetic enhancement can go a long way to improving not only your appearance but also your confidence, too much can just as easily have the opposite effect.
If you do opt for artificial augmentation, talk to your doctor about using the least amount needed in order to get the job done. As with any cosmetic procedure, it is okay to take your time. Start with just one area, such as your forehead, to see how you like it before you allow your doctor to inject multiple areas, such as lips and crow’s feet. You can always come back for more.
Before you take the plunge, consider trying an at-home solution. Daily skincare used consistently can create real and lasting results, no appointment necessary.
At the end of the day, your natural beauty is what will shine through. So if you do opt for filler, keep your features in proportion, be your own advocate and remember that less is more.
