Makemeheal.com has closely followed the trials and tribulations of Lindsay Lohan. And we weren’t the only ones who noticed the freckled one’s full, new lip augmentation in her booking photo.
24-year old Lindsay Lohan has a hard time growing up, doing multiple stints in rehab centers and appearing in court numerous times. Her latest escapades landed her in the slammer, giving the troubled young woman some time to contemplate her past actions.
Knowing that she was heading to jail, it seems that Lindsay took time to prep for her role as a jailbird by getting a lip augmentation using a filler like Restylane or Juvederm.
An UsWeekly interview with numerous dermatologists and plastic surgery experts agrees.
Dermatologist Dr. Kenneth Bee says, “She has had injections of a filler such as Restylane or Juvederm. To me, it looks like about 1 to 2 syringes of product were used on her upper and lower lips… it will last for about 6 to 8 months.” (He also suspects she “had some Botox [injected into] her forehead and frown lines.”)
“There is no question that Ms. Lohan had filler of some type in her lips,” Dr. Michael Olding, the Chief of the Division of Plastic Surgery at George Washington University (and director of the Cosmetic Surgery & Laser Center), tells Us.
Dr. Olding also notes that in her before photo, “her lips look asymmetric, so she was probably having filler even then.”
Indeed, this isn’t the first time Lindsay’s lips have looked larger than life, despite the actresses claims that she has naturally full lips(See Make Me Heal’s story on Lindsay Lohan’s lip augmentation).
“Perhaps she overfilled them a little bit with the anticipation that her access to her dermatologist or plastic surgeon might be limited for the foreseeable future,” says Dr. Beer.
“Given the fact that she has probably had it previously, and therefore will not be ‘allergic,’ she will likely not have any complications,” says Dr. Olding.
Lindsay likely wanted to look better in her new mugshot than she has in her previous photos, and may even have asked to look pouty.
“On the upper lip, a common technique is to inject the filler along the border between the pink of the lip and the normal skin — this gives a ‘pouty’ look to the lip,” says New York City plastic surgeon Dr. Elliot W. Jacobs.
“Lohan knew the photo of her mugshot would be widely distributed. It is likely she had it done for this reason,” dermatologist Dr. Marcy Street tells Us.
On the other hand, Lindsay’s full lips could be the result of a past procedure, and a new lip gloss.
Board certified Manhattan plastic surgeon Dr. David Shafer says,”Lindsay Lohan’s lips do appear fuller on the most recent picture, but I doubt that she had fillers placed right before jail. More likely the fullness is due to hydration and makeup.”
Miami Dr. Michael Salzhauer says, “ Her lips do seem fuller in her mug shot. She certainly is a prisoner to beauty!”
Make Me Heal looks forward to seeing what Lindsay does next after her release.
