A woman has almost tripled the size of her lips after going through 15 lip procedures but claims she is the happiest she has ever been with her dramatic pout.
Andrea Emilova Ivanova hails from Bulgaria and currently is studying German Philology. She says that since she was little, she dreamed of having full lips.
Andrea says she has visited dozens of clinics in her home and shells out 300 Lev in Bulgaria ($168) per treatment.
“I like my lips now, more than before and I feel very good and very happy with my new lips, because according to me with bigger lips I look prettier and in Bulgaria this is fashion now. I have visited almost all clinics for aesthetic procedures in Sofia and I put in my lips almost all kinds of lips fillers. I didn’t count the money for these procedures, I don’t know exactly how much money have I spent on my lips, but one millilitre of hyaluronic acid is a standard 300 Lev in Bulgaria ($168).”
Her look has gained over thousands of followers on social media, with over 15,000 followers on Instagram alone.
Andrea admits that while many praise her for her daring look, others cut her down but it does not phase her.
“There are people who like me with bigger lips and there are people who like me with smaller lips,” she said. “But it doesn’t matter to me, because it’s important for me how I like it. Other’s people opinion is irrelevant. Each person’s lips are different, and each person has an individual restriction on enlargement, how many millilitres of filler can the lips endure. I can’t give any indication of how big is too big, or can lips be too big, because for each person: ‘big’, ‘bigger’ and ‘too big’ are different concepts. I’m broad-minded and I think people should be free to choose, which one is for them big, bigger or too big. There are no boundaries for me.”
That being said, she claims she is not addicted to fillers and says she does not copy celebrities when it comes to her look.
And when asked if she wants to have the biggest lips in the world, she replied:
“Yes, why not? But in my country the big lips are fashionable and there are many girls with fillers in the lips too. And for the biggest lips in the world I think I still have competition.”
Andrea hopes to inspire others to follow their own path and not be caught up in what others may believe about their choices.
“I’m glad that the universe gave me the chance many people to see me and to know that I exist and I want to tell people: Be happy and do what you like, don’t let others restrict your choice. Each of us must follow our heart and our goals without being influenced by other’s opinions. The world needs change from a new, free and unlimited thinking to a lot of art, happiness and kindness. We are the creators of the present. If each of us is satisfied, then the entire planet will be [harmonized.]”
