Cherry Lips Filler Are The Latest K-Beauty Trend Among K-Pop Stars

The latest Korean lip trend is called cherry lips – No it’s not because of it’s colour but the shape that the filler gives. There are few K-pop stars that are already “cherrying” up their lips like Monsta X’s Joohoney and Hyungwon, Seventeen’s Hoshi and S. Coups, Chung Ha as well as several members of BTS.

All you need to do is to search on Twitter “체리입술” aka cherry lips and you’ll find plenty of references.

 Oooh, Cherry lips filler?

This is when dermatologists fill the middle area of the lips, instead of an all-over plumping effect. The Head Dermatologist at JY Plastic Surgery & Dermatology, Kang Jong Bum, tells Allure, Koreans are now into a cherry-like aesthetic for more natural-looking volume and dimension.

We call it cherry lips because the lips are not volumized at the [outer corners], but you can see the two areas that are plump on the top and the bottom. Imagine two pairs of cherries hanging horizontally from the corners of your lips like the diagram below — that's where cherry lips get its name from. تسمى شفاه الكرز بهذا الاسم لأن الشفتين لا يتم تكبيرهما في [الزوايا الخارجية] و إنما فقط في المنطقة الوسطى في الشفة العلوية و السفلية مما يعطيها شكل الكرز في امتلائها شكرا لمراجعتي العزيزة على مشاركة صور حقن الشفايف التي تم حقنها من اكثر من عام (رمضان٢٠١٨)😍 #lipinjections #lipfillers #lipaugmentation #fillers #cherrylips #beauty #شفايف #تجميل #تجميلي #فيلر #فيلرز #توريد #كونتور #تعبئة #شفاه_ممتلئة #جمالك #بنات #فاشون_موضة #فاشونيستا #موضه✨

“We call it cherry lips because the lips are not volumized at the [outer corners], but you can see the two areas that are plump on the top and the bottom.” Pretty much like two cherries facing each other!

Getting your lips injected cherry-styled can make your lips fuller and youthful-looking too.

Depending on how natural patients would want their lips to look, fillers with thinner consistency are Belotero Balance and Juvéderm Volbella. While voluminous lips are achievable with Juvéderm and Restylane Silk. For plumbing effect, Juvéderm Ultra and Volbella.

But just like any other lip injections, it will last between 3 months to 6 months. There’ll also be side effects like swelling, soreness and bruising. Best to consult a doctor before getting any injections done.
