Meghan Markle has the ‘Perfect Pout’ According to Doctors
With her recent engagement to Prince Harry bringing her worldwide attention, Meghan Markle has also been the inspiration behind a surge of surgical requests to get her perfect pout.
According to the top plastic surgeons based in the U.K., Markle’s lips have the ‘perfect proportions,’ referencing popular studies that indicate facial symmetry is a sign of attractiveness. In Lee Bader’s 2014 article, for example, he suggests two theories that support this idea: the Evolutionary Advantage theory and Perceptual bias.
Evolutionary Advantage theory describes faces with symmetrical features are perceived as more attractive because it indicates good health. From an evolutionary standpoint (and hence the name of the theory), this means that individuals with symmetrical features are more likely and capable of populating the species and keep our survival rate up.
The second theory, Perceptual Bias, suggests that people have an easier time processing symmetrical stimuli than asymmetry. This is often proven in studies where participants have a preference towards symmetrical art as opposed to abstract pieces.
When it comes to symmetry, Meghan Markle seems to have won the jackpot. Many doctors and plastic surgeons say they have around 15-20 appointments per week of women showing photos of Meghan Markle from social media to have the same pout recreated.
As a member of the Royal College of Surgeons, Dr. Benji Dhillon explains the attraction to Markle’s lip service, arguing that her lips are proportional: she “…demonstrates features of the “ideal lips”: a lower lip that is slightly larger than the top as well as having the upper lip sloping gently down towards the corner of the mouth.”
According to another plastic surgeon, Dr. Dhillon suggests having Dermal fillers as a method of re-shaping the proportion of lips. He says that it is also the most common and accepted method for this type of procedure.
Dhillon explains, “Hyalurionic acid dermal fillers, which integrate your lips to achieve a soft and natural enhancement to the lips, are the most ideal filler and often last 9 to 12 months. It is essential that the procedure is performed by a medical professional with experience, and if performed correctly, can be made to look like you never had any “treatment.””
