Nicole Kidman's Lips

Awful Plastic Surgery has a couple photos of Nicole Kidman which beg the question: Does she have an implant in her upper lip? It looks like that may be the case.

I've never been a fan of lip implants. In general, they tend to look stiff and unnatural. I tend to prefer Juvederm or Fat to enhance lips, but each one has its limitations. If an implant comes along that doesn't look unnatural and stiff, then I'd consider it.

Thanks for reading.

I had forgotten how lovely Nicole Kidman had been years ago until my son mentioned one of her early films. She was enchanting. Now she's a tight porcelain figurine. I'm all for cosmetic enhancements when they actually enhance. I wonder how she feels about her current appearance.

I don't really understand how this has become suddenly newsworthy after such a length of time. It's not something that has just happened. I have already written on this subject on my blog maybe 18 months ago, how when I was doing a portait of Ms Kidman for my last exhibition, I had to retouch the photo so it looked more like her - as in profile it looked nothing like the Nicole we know. I had to reduce the lips down so she was recognisable.

Someone in the comments of Awful Plastic Surgery suggest she may have had some surgery to hide her gums and what we are actually seeing is what used to be the inside of her upper lip.

I think that Marly has hit the nail on the head. Cosmoceutical products like Botox and Juvederm can look so good when used judiciously. However, when overdone, the result is bizarre, and poor Nicole Kidman is the latest victim.

Dr. Youn-You've performed a public service without realizing it. When I read Dr. Pickart's comment on Nicole Kidman, I went to his site and he's only a few miles from where I live. I'd been planning to have you do my tummy tuck but I'm in Southern California and you're not. Thank you so much for this serendipitous moment.

honestly Doctor Youn, I can't believe you pay any attention to I mean, c'mon, the guy just pulls half that stuff out of a hat without any basis to the claims (point in case the latest post on Carrie fisher) hoping to get more hits + more advertising.
