Not a Good Experience - Atlanta, GA
Had derma filler in my upper lip before my wedding...
- 4 Oct 2012
Had derma filler in my upper lip before my wedding. Before we began, we had agreed that $500 was the cost of the syringe. If all wasn't injected the syringe would be saved for future treatments with a $100 administration charge. During the procedure my lip swelled so large that the treatment was cut short and only 1/3 of the syringe was injected therefore, another session was needed. Wellll, if there wasn't such an adverse reaction to the treatment, which I believe was due to the numbing, and done accurately then a second treatment wouldn't be needed. The swelling took well over 2 weeks to subside and still looked very awkward. It was worse than a Buckhead wife's pout; it was a banana lip... and it was uneven. I brought to her attention during the treatment the uneven appearance, but she said she injected equal parts to each side of the lip. That may be so, but if it's uneven, it's uneven, right? I called to have the left side re-touched for to balance the lips. I was told there would be $100 charge. Okay, I agree that if I wanted more from the syringe in other areas or wanted bigger lips 6 mo's down the road that there would be a charge of $100 for administering, but to charge $100 a few weeks later just to finish and correct the initial treatment doesn't seem fair. There's no way I was going to pay additional for a correction. I didn't go back. The final result was were slight, but noticeably uneven and I had an awkward bump in the middle of my lip that intereferred with my wedding pictures and made my lips look augmented. $500 dollars to make me look worse for my wedding. Nice, thanks. Since, I have been going elsewhere with amazing results and no swelling. My new Dr's work looks "real". On a side note: Dr. Morgan is very concerned about the comfort level of the patient. That is a good thing however, in my opinion, the numbing can cause excessive swelling which can interfere with the accuracy of the filler. Filler is not that painful! "YouTube it". Forget about numbing! When it comes to beauty I feel no pain ;) Good luck! :)
