There’s nothing more seductive than a pillowy pout in today’s age of beauty. Full lips are becoming less of a trend and more of a beauty standard, according to everyone from social media influencers to A-list celebs (we’re looking at you, Kylie Jenner).
Trends, on the other hand, come and go in waves. In a year’s time, what has been fashionable for the past few years may be considered a fashion faux pas. So, what are your options? Of course, you can go ahead and have your lips done, but the permanence (or the size of the needle) may give you the creeps.
So, without resorting to surgery, how can you achieve permanently larger lips? To be blunt, you won’t be able to. A cosmetic operation is the only way to have larger lips that is genuinely permanent. However, you may obtain a similar look with carefully made makeup products, DIY solutions, and makeup techniques.
Here, we’ll go over all the different methods you may get the oomph your lips have been needing, as well as some advice for keeping your pout healthy along the road.
Why Can’t I Get Bigger Lips Without Having Surgery?
While it would be quite remarkable (and less expensive) to permanently increase your lips without the use of plastic surgery, the truth is that our bodies were not designed to withstand such severe changes.
Whatever surgery you have done to yourself will always fade down to a sort of baseline (or, your body’s normal state) due to the body’s innate healing and regenerative properties.
That’s why tattoos fade over time, piercing sites heal when the jewellery is removed, and natural lip plumping procedures aren’t especially long-lasting.
Even cosmetic surgery isn’t necessarily a long-term answer, since surgeons recommend getting a touch-up every few months. Because filler dissolves with time, this is the case.

Physical or chemical exfoliants may leave your skin feeling supple and smooth, which is why you like them. Did you know that exfoliating your lips might produce the same results?
That’s correct! Exfoliation is one of the simplest and most cost-effective strategies to get a fuller-looking pout. When your lips are dry, they appear whiter, tighter, and smaller as a result. When your lips are at this point, you may feel compelled to pick at them, but instead, we recommend using a lip scrub.
Make sure your lips are clean and dry before exfoliating. Swipe your lips with some makeup remover to make sure you’re clear of lipstick and gloss. However, we recommend doing this just after brushing your teeth (to guarantee no food residue is left on your lips).
