Lindsay Lohan's lips look extra full in her mug shot photo.

Why? Multiple plastic surgeons tell UsMagazine.com that the actress, 24, surgically plumped her pout before checking into the Lynwood Regional Detention Center Tuesday to serve just 14 days of her 90-day sentence.

"There is no question that Ms. Lohan had filler of some type in her lips," Dr. Michael Olding, the Chief of the Division of Plastic Surgery at George Washington University (and director of the Cosmetic Surgery & Laser Center), tells Us.

Says dermatologist Dr. Kenneth Beer, owner of ScientificSkin.com (who, like the other surgeons quoted here, have not treated Lohan), "She has had injections of a filler such as Restylane or Juvederm. To me, it looks like about 1 to 2 syringes of product were used on her upper and lower lips... it will last for about 6 to 8 months." (He also suspects she "had some Botox [injected into] her forehead and frown lines.")

In the "before" photos -- taken around the time Lohan's SCRAM bracelet went off at the MTV Movie Awards in June -- "her lips look asymmetric, so she was probably having filler even then," points out Dr. Olding.

But he believes she got a touch up before checking into jail because, "There is often an initial period of swelling that occurs with injection that rapidly resolves within the first 24 hours."

Adds Dr. Beer: "Perhaps she overfilled them a little bit with the anticipation that her access to her dermatologist or plastic surgeon might be limited for the foreseeable future." (She was also sentenced to check into a 90-day rehab center upon her release from jail.)

Lohan also won't have access to plastic surgeons in prison in case there are medical issues, but that shouldn't be a problem. "Given the fact that she has probably had it previously, and therefore will not be 'allergic,' she will likely not have any complications," says Dr. Olding.

Could she have enhanced her lips to look sexier in this mug shot than the one from 2007?

"Lohan knew the photo of her mugshot would be widely distributed. It is likely she had it done for this reason," dermatologist Dr. Marcy Street tells Us.

Lohan could have even asked for a specific look.

"On the upper lip, a common technique is to inject the filler along the border between the pink of the lip and the normal skin -- this gives a 'pouty' look to the lip," says New York City plastic surgeon Dr. Elliot W. Jacobs.
