Severe pain/bruising after recent lip augmentation?
Byon 19 Jul 2012
My experience with Restylane has always been good. Same applies to the surgeon I see. The last time I decided to have lips enhanced, I mentioned my concern about an overlap or droopy appearance in central part of upper lip. Very visible in profile view of face. He suggested a slightly different approach, filling the central upper lip as well as lower lip. It gave desired look....but at what a painful cost! My lips were super painful, bruised, a has two small bumps under lip. When I saw him, he felt it was an allergic reaction, and taking ibuprofen and Benadryl before procedure would help. Anyone else had this experience? Wondered if age is a factor: I'm 76 now. Was in early 70s when I first had lips plumped.
