I recently had juvederm done in the lips. It looked good for about 2 days until the initial swelling went down and I noticed loose skin on the sides of my lips (I'll call them lip jowls). They form a severe line and cover the end of my smile like a flap. No clue where this skin came from - I've always had thin, flat features and tight skin below my cheeks. From the side view I now look 10 years older!
Its not like the lips are even big, but she did have to build out the upper lip. I'm thinking because I had such flat lips and features, that building out the upper lip may have been too much for my thin face and pulled skin out and down. I went back for some corrections for this, and again it looked great until the initial swelling went down. Now I see nothing but the flaps and new marionette lines that form on each side when I smile because of excess skin.
Im 38 and always passed for 30. Now I look much older. I cant go to my 20 year reunion looking like this. I cant see my boyfriend. I basically have shut myself in from everyone so they cant see me. I literally have scotch taped my cheeks back so I dont have to see it when I look in the mirror!

today.. 2 days after my initial post I have the same mouth pouches and when I smile I look like the joker. In addition a new problem has been forming that I notice at night (when my face volume is lower) Im getting deep trenches next to my nose... like juvederm has pulled my cheeks down and away from my nose. I never had that before! Im going to a plastic surgeon today to see if he can remove this hell from my face, but I think the saggy skin may be permanent.
She has destroyed my mouth and my beautiful smile by injecting in all the wrong places around my mouth. I used to have a great smile I could be proud of, now just mouth jowels. My lips are horribly uneven and smile is like a clown. For the first few months I could barely even smile wide. At 9 months, I can now smile wider but the jowels and joker curl are no better. I've had one plastic surgeon offer to do a case study. Two others just tell me this is a "horrible" result. Yes it is. And it doesn't end.
