Im 36 years old and I never really had a good lip. You cannot see my teeth at all and it just doesn't have a pretty shape. To make things worse my lips are thin. I know someone who had this done and I couldn't believe the difference! I'm hoping for the same result!! I'm having the lip lift and he's going to fill them to help create a fuller look. Wish me luck! I will post pics.

She healed very well. They resurface the scar at no extra charge!

Resurfacing included, great! Look forward to seeing/hearing of your results.
Aug, I wanted to ask you how your sister healed from her procedure? There are comments by some who tell of not so attractive scars and a few that tell of scars that are well hidden. Thank you very much for all your help.

I had more swelling on the right side of my lip, the doctor said, this will improve as I heal. I still have numbness and swelling in the incision area under my nose, as the swelling goes down my lip should lift up even more. The scare is healing very well and is already hardly noticeable. I will have the laser treatment ,but have not gotten it yet.

Congratulations, you look great. I am glad you're happy with your results. I was able to see scar area in the 8th photo best (the others appear to have some type of yellow/orange gel substance over area). Photo 8 with/without makeup? Your scar is healing well, and you haven't even had your laser tx. yet...yeah! Did he/she add anything to enhance fullness? Thanks for sharing with us.

I just wanted to say that this procedure is so natural looking. Its hard to see in the pics because I'm trying not to show my entire face,but it really helped balance out my face and is more proportionate. I told my Dr. I wanted a very natural look, and I didn't want a hiked up look that people would know I did something or that would look funny. It's been three weeks, I still have swelling in my upper lip so I have not achieved my end result, but it already looks so much better.

I didn't have the corner lift. I only lifted the upper lip. Don't freak out the first week is so swollen the right side of my face swelled up twice as big as the left for no apparent reason. Give it some time. Just rest don't try to do to much. Stay in bed and allow yourself to recover!;)) It get's better hang in there!!!

Hi, having a bad morning :( It still looks the same as day 3, and what I really worried about are the corners of my mouth. I got a corner lift as well, but my mouth is downturned, way worse than before I even got this done. I noticed that in your earlier swelling, yours were downturned the very slightest bit, but not like mine. Did you feel like you looked like you were frowning for the first few weeks, and then it got better? Definitely not feeling great.

So, I had my laser resurfacing done! I was not prepaired for another week of recovery. This proceedure also causes lots of swelling and is painful! The price we pay for beauty!

Hey! Yes more pics soon! so notice my teeth, when I was a teenager with braces the orthodontis shaved down my front two teeth because they had gotten chipped on the braces. I had no idea I could have this fixed with bonding! I have a complete smile makeover. I would have had my teeth fixed years ago, just had no idea, it was such an easy fix. Looks soo much better!!
Im sorry, forgot to tell you Congrats! on such a beautiful outcome. I am also hoping to get this done, after my nose reconstruction.

Hi there this is my second comment of the day. I'm obsessed. So I'm in the new Orleans /BR area and Dr. Pernack seems to be the only one in the area that does this type of procedure. I am not sure if I need injections or a lift, or both?? Does he decide what is best for your face? I do have a long upper lip but I'm only 26 so I'm not sure if a lift is appropriate. Any advice is greatly appreciated!

Hey there your lips look AMAZING! I live in the New Orleans area and haven't been able to find a doctor who does lip lifts, who did you use? $3K is a lot of money but I guess it would be worth it! Do you have to use any fillers now to maintain your appearance or are you good to go with just the lift? Thanks!

Hi, this is Sandy in Texas. Is your Dr, Steve Laverson. I talked to him on the phone. I loved him. How did your scar turn out. I so happy to hear that your lip turned out good. Aug 2911"s lip turned out well. Dr. Perenack. I interviewed with him on the 25th of april I liked him very much, but what was even more impressive was he mentioned a doctor near my home and I called that office and asked his office manager if she knew Dr, Perenack and told her I had just gotten back from seeing him. she said yes she knew him and she loved him, that he was an artist and she would let him do anything to her, that the /dr. she worked for had trained dr. pernack and she had seen his work. That eased my mind about him. But ::Leverson I really liked on the phone. bye for now Sandy

Hi! My revision did not go well at all :( And now I'm looking for someone to fix the revision! Can you please tell me, do you know other women that had the same gorgeous results as you??? Just making sure that you're not a fluke! I'm scared to death now to go anywhere :( I was thinking Haworth in Ca. until I read some bad reviews on different websites. Not just bad, scary. I wish I could see more photos. Does your doc do revisions? I have bad white scarring. I read that you had scarring lasered, but these really need to be cut out, because my upper lip is not just scarred, it's very uneven.
