53 Yrs. Old I Had a Bottom Lip Implant and an Upper Lip Lift

I love my bottom lip. And totally dislike the outcome of the lip lift. I have been very depressed, wish that I would of just done the bottom lip implant. One side is shorter than the other. To much was cut in the center of my upper lip. They are unbalanced and I look deformed. Dr. sais that my face was not cemetrical there the reason why the lift was crocked. I also posted a picture before the procedure. When I smile my lips look nice but, not otherwise. I am still red under my nose. He has not offered any kind of lasser treatments to help with redness or scar. I went and got lip filler to balance out the uneveness somewhat.

At my initial consultation I only wanted a bottom lip implant. Dr. Angelchik suggested if I wanted a upper lip implant it would be better to first do an upper lip lift. With a pencil he lifted the lip and showed me the difference. I agreed that my upper lip was low and thin due to age I was unable to see my top teeth when smiling. Procedure was preformed and as time has gone by my lips are still healing and the outcome has been very nice.

My bottom lip is the implant that I like. It is my lip lift that did not turn out nice.

Oh, I am so sorry to hear that. Thank you for sharing and I hope you find a way to resolve your issue. Drives me nuts how some doctors are doing "All procedures" when they should be sticking only with those they do well. I wish you the best.
