Lip Augmentation Using Your Own Fascia -Gulf Shores, AL

Pros: body doesn't reject, does make lips fuller...

Pros: body doesn't reject, does make lips fuller than natural lips you were born with ; no infection, pretty easy recovery

Cons: I myself my body re-adsorbed a percentage of it; not all of it but enough where it took some of my pout away, but still bigger than my natural lips; fascia was taken from both sides of my neck; was cut open behind both of my ears to get in my neck; little bit sensitivity behind ears but went away after a month

I was afraid of the other available lip augmentation(implant such as gortex,silicone and Silkon1000) all of these had bad outcomes and actually spoke with several PS who talked against them and was removing more than putting in. After reading reviews on here glad i did my research on the internet and spoke with several PS. I did look at Alloderm, but in time over a 7 yr period gets re-adsorbed so i found using my own Fascia would be best and safest. I had been getting up to 3 injections a year(2 together and come back in a month for the 3 injection) which costs 1575 for the past 3 yrs.....lets do the math 4725.00 total.... i was done and wanted a more permanent solution. The surgery cost me 3500.00 well here iam again and not happy...my pic does show my lips that i have now and will post some pics what they use to look like 2days after surgery and month...loved them was soo happy....Dr. was hesitant and putting too much in my lip because it cant be removed, but he did offer to have me come back in 3mths to redo again at a much cheaper rate to make me happy. It took about a year and 1/2 to make me not happy...i know i could call and go back, but not thrilled about having behinds my ears cut again....i believe it did make an improvement in size with my lips but didn't hold enough...my Dr was great; would recommend and go again for other procedures. Dr. McCollough does excellent work and has a great staff

Fitmom, I'm totally confused, if dr. McCullough was so great, five stars and you would go back to him, but yet you went to dr. Butler in pensacola ? Am I just totally confused?

McCollough didn't do anything wrong.... He did a great Job on my lips and the surgery was successful .... But it's not his fault my body reasborbed the fascia and he was willing to redo if I wasn't happy but it was not worth the money at a discount to go back and have it redone and take a chance my body doing the same thing again ... He doesn't do permalips so that's why I didn't go to him vs dr butler ...., so with that said he deserved 5 stars and I was told during my consult their was a chance of the fascia being reasborbed but some keep it others only lose a little bit and one case more than I like ... It was my only option at that time too ; permalip didn't get FDA approved until later for the United States

Thank you so much for sharing your experience on RealSelf. You're a lovely lady and I'm sorry you're not 100% thrilled with your results. We'd love to see your pics now to visualize what you're describing with the reabsorption.
