Courtney Love continues to be in the news regarding plastic surgery. She was recently photographed at a London club looking like she has a new scar along her bottom lip. She recently stated (link) that she was planning on getting the plastic surgery she had performed on her lips corrected, and it seems she has. It's quite possible at one time she had a permanent lip implant placed (such as Gortex), causing her lip to look large, stiff, and unnatural. Usually it can be removed with a small incision at the corner of the mouth, but at times it may be necessary to completely fillet the lip open. This may be what has happened to her. The scars usually heal pretty well, but I still am not a fan of lip implants. I'd rather use an injectable like Restylane or Juvederm.
Most patients would let it heal for a couple weeks before going out to a bar though! Maybe she figured the alcohol in her drinks would help prevent it from getting infected...
