I had lip lift surgery before i come to USA on Apr20th.
I came to USA on Apr28th. still not healing yet while i traveling.
I never washed my face and wait until it heal itself.
today i tried to search more info and i was shock when i see that my lip lift doesnt go well as other people.
please see the picture and help me. give me any suggestion what should i do? I called the doctor but he never picked up the phone. He only emailed me back and said don't do anything. :(
It's difficult to tell from the photo you sent as to exactly where the hole is...could you send another photo of your entire lips and maybe we can make a suggestion

hole from the side

this pic you can see the hole from the side.

T.T really sad

I hope you are doing better. I just read your story about not washing it. I had upper lip lift and was told to gently wash with warm water and anti bacterial soap 3 times a day. This and warm water compresses can soften the dried issue. I wonder if not washing it has caused the amount of scab on the incision. It is still very soon after the procedure. This can take up to three months to heal. Also if the scar is visible a C0-2 laser can reduce the scar. Your lips look pretty.

Hi bgth, I'm sorry you had such a bad experience. I hope it's not too painful still. I also wanted to tell you that aside from the dried blood (which I'm sure can be fixed), your lips actually look really beautiful! Nice and full upper lip, very feminine, with no asymmetry. So that's good! I'm praying for your healing. Xo
