Why Lips Won’t Plump CandyLipz August 16, 2015 Lip Plumper Tips THE LIP LOSS VOLUME MYTH As we age, we accumulate more fat in the lips. However, our lips look thinner and thinner every decade! Isn’t it strange? Shouldn’t they look fuller and bigger if you have more fat deposited each decade? Take a look at the trend of the total lip volume in a study of 387 females aged 3 to 73.

From birth to death, your lip volume, on average, is increasing! It is very difficult for us to visualize the volume unit in milliliter cube (mm3). Let see how much lip volume you have in teaspoons (TSP)- it is a measurement unit for dry and liquid foods. One teaspoon is 5000 mm3. Basically, you are born with over half a teaspoon of lip volume and the lips grow to over a teaspoon by the end of your life. Take a look at a computer simulation of the aging face and the lips below. Your lips mature to their maximum plumpness at the age of 16 for males and 18 for females. After these years, the lips start to deteriorate gradually. The upper lip drops lower and lower each decade by 1 to 2.5 mm. The lips get wider – up to 20 mm or more! The lips also lose their pout by 0.5 mm a decade. The third image shows a teen boy with quite a pouty lips look. The last image illustrates some serious lip lengthening, flattening, and drooping. THE LIP FACTS 1. Males have fuller lips than females. They have more muscle than fat in their bodies. Lean muscle stores 75% water and fat is nearly devoid of water! If you have more muscle in the lips, they can hold more water and stay plump longer. 2. As we age, the lips replace muscle with fat. This means, your lips won’t plump as easily even when you drink plenty of fluid. 3. Fat looks three times bigger than muscle when equal in weight. This is why when muscle is replaced with fat, the lips volume tends to increase into your late years. Since fat has a tendency to cause lip drooping because muscle atrophy occurs with age. Your lips no longer have the structural support to hold them up. As a result, the fat redistributes sideways and your lips get wider and appear thinner.

It stores up to 80 percent water. This is why babies are so plump! It is not the fat that makes them look plump. Water fills up the muscle much like a water balloon. If you workout when you are dehydrated, your muscle size will decrease.
