I had Restylane for the first time with a very conservative and trusted doctor under whose care I have been for several years. I had an initial and follow up restylane treatment to plump up my lips.
After some minor swelling subsided, I did not have the desired increase in volume (we used it sparingly so as not to over do it), but I also noticed that one side of my lip was hanging down lower over my gum line than on the other and I also had more pronounced lines around my mouth.
I returned to my doctor and they were a bit puzzled but finally assumed I had some sort of asymmetry they did not notice before, and put some more in to even it out and give me some more volume and the lines have disappeared. When my lips are closed, they look great and symmetrical, but my upper right lip still droops down over my teeth as soon as I smile unless I really force a big smile. My dentist even noticed it when I went in for a check up.
I have waited almost a month to see if this will disappear but it is still here and I am upset as I liked my smile to begin with just wanted to see some more upper lip when I smiled.
I would not do this again as I have had some side effects I did not know were possibilities.Has anyone else had this issue? Any recommendations?
