In most ways, Summer Wilson is just like any other 17-year-old. She’s studying her year 11 VCE, has a part time job at Woolies and is looking forward to her 18th birthday in five months time.
But unlike most girls her age, Summer has already undergone a cosmetic procedure. Just two months ago, with the permission and support of her mother, the Victorian teen had fillers injected into her top lip.
“I got them because I’ve always had a small top lip. It didn’t match with my bottom lip and I got quite self conscious about it,” she told Mamamia from her Mornington Peninsula home.
“It was about Year Nine that I really started to notice it.”

Two months on, Summer says the procedure has changed her life, that she's finally happy with the girl looking back at her in the mirror.
“Honestly, I feel so much better about myself, because I used to get little comments, like 'Summer, where's your top lip? Oh, you don't have one',” she said.
“And knowing that I actually do now, it's like people won't be thinking about it and judging me.”
