As we age, it is common to gain volume in areas of the body where it is least welcome, such as the hips and abdomen. With the lips, the opposite is true. Lips lose their fullness and “pout” as the skin sags and loses collagen, the natural protein that keeps our facial features looking smooth and vibrant. How much and how fast this occurs depends in part on environment and lifestyle, but mostly genetics.
