Talking about perfect lips, every woman wants lips like Angelina Jolie or Kylie Jenner. Women have tried everything to get that perfect lips be it injections, surgeries or lip liners. However, plastic surgeons have recently revealed the actual ratio of those perfect pouts.

According to the research, the surgeons asked a group to focus on several computer morphed images showing all types of lip ratio. Finally, the researchers were able to reveal the shape that was unanimously deemed as the perfect lips as Daily Mail Online reported.

The study was conducted at the University of California, Irwine. The team got a focus group to rank the faces based on attractiveness. The images were created with different lip surface areas, thereby adjusting the upper lip and lower lip accordingly.

According to The Sun, the perfect lips were those that were found to be with 53.5% increase in the surface area from its actual image. It had a one to two ratio of upper to lower lip. This made the new ratio from 1.5 to 3. The lips also made up for the 10 percent of the lower third of the face.

However, limitations were also noted since it didn't have any guidelines to modify the lip surface area. Now, interestingly, the changes in the morphed images were entirely based on clinical experience of what appeared to be feasible to the study.

"We advocate preservation of the natural ratio or achieving a one to two ratio in lip augmentation procedures while avoiding the overfilled upper lip look frequently seen among celebrities", claimed the study authors. Dr. Brian Wong, the lead author said he hoped this study would help lay down the guidelines to achieve better results in lip augmentation.

In 2010, the researchers conducted an experiment to find if there was a facial golden ratio or ideal facial feature arrangements. The study concluded that women with larger lips showed higher mating potential.
