I was born with a cleft lip and palate, and my upper lip was asymmetrical and lacked volume.
My surgeon did a dermal fat graft- extracting fat with the underlying dermis and rolling it up to do my lip augmentation.
He said it would keep 70% of its volume, but it kept about 50% and settled unevenly.
It helped a lot, but I feel like I should have been consulted more on the scar it would leave... more
This is the first time I had a filler put into my lips. Dr Kass was very professional, knowledgeable and skillfull. He conducted the new patient intake, consult and procedure. I was very pleased. He explained the different procedures available to plump up my very thin lips. He then gave his recommendation. I receive the filler restylane. more
Dr. Dreshen was so polite. He did my lip augmentation with complete professionalism and he made me feel like I was at home. The staff was super courteous and made me feel like a friend rather than a patient. I feel very happy with my new lips, and my confidence is 100% more than it was before! I would recommend Dr. Dreshen to anyone looking for any type of surgery. I will definitely be back... more
I wanted to have my lips more full, but for them too look natural.
My surgeon did a numbing block so the injections to lips was painless.
My lips look naturally fuller and not over done.
I had swelling for about 3 days. The first day swelling was a lot. Good thing I did injections on Friday I would not have wanted to go to work the day after. more
