I had $530 worth of Juvederm (whatever the measurement was my Dr. said that there was only 1 cc/ml(?) left when we were done) put into my top lip only on Dec. 21 and today Dec 28, it's definitely very noticable according to my BF and he said that anyone who knows me will be able to tell that I've had something done =(
For me this is a negative.
On a more positive note a MAC salesgirl said that I have nice lips yesterday but I don't know if that's just because she wanted to sell me lipstick lol
I would describe my top lip as looking pouty like Robin Tunney's but bigger and puffier.
WARNING - My top lip doesn't move when I speak. For Greys Anatomy fans, I speak like "Ava" played by Elizabeth Reaser!
WARNING - There are 2 bumps on each corner edge of my upper lip that's not visible but I can feel it with my tongue and one on the outside that's not visible but feels like a cold-sore. Actually it might be because my Dr. said that Juvederm can cause cold-sores to flare up.
WARNING - DO NOT believe your Dr. when he/she says that the recovery is just one day. It's not and I would recommend a 10 day down-time for settling, bruises, swelling, pain, soreness and poke marks. All of which I had.
Also take note that you will not be able to wrap your lips around anything afterwards so eating and drinking is a problem. I sill can't wrap my lips around anything naturally and DEFINITELY feels like I have something in my lip. It's uncomfortable!
Overall, I would advise that anyone thinking about getting this should be very clear about what they want and bring pictures!
It works of course but I don't like that it's so noticable and anyone considering doing this should be equally clear on if this is acceptable to them. I personally wanted just a little poutier top lip to balance my bottom lip.
I hope that it will go down a bit more in the next week because then it's back to school for me and I don't want people asking me what I had done!
Any advice on what to say? Do all you ladies tell people what you did or?
P.S I will be visiting this site periodically so please feel free to ask me anything about the Juvéderm experience :o <-- I actually look like this right now lol
