Hi there. I'm. 31 years old and for many years have been unhappy with how thin my upper lip was, having done extensive research into juvederm/restyline/where to go for it and who to have the work done by, I decided to go with a cosmetic surgery trained nurse at a private hospital close to where I live in London.
I was initially informed that she didnt do the 'trout pout' look which I was more than happy with as I simply wanted to enhance my vermillion border and 'bring up' my upper lip to look slightly more sensual. (I knew exactly what I wanted in my minds eye) she was in agreement that we would go into the vermillion border alone and not inject into the main part of my lip. Well, firstly there was no anaesthetic used and the injections hurt me like crazy but of course, you rationalise it as something vain you've chosen to do so just deal with it! Anyway she said my lips 'puffed up' quite quickly and I was instantly very happy with my left hand side of my lip. She put some into the other side and also the lowers to add a bit of volume. My right hand side however didnt seem to 'take' it! It dropped instantly! (My lip on one side went all low) so she decided to inject really high to sort of bring it up again but all that did is make me look as though I'd been punched in my face. Two weeks later I went back for the top up (she likes to do two stages incase of reaction) where i showed her how odd my rh side looked! She Added a little more but again it's all puffed up on top! My 'good' side has a lovely white roll to it but I've lost the pink to white border in my bad side somehow. Why? Could it be nerve damage? I shall take a photo and would be so grateful for any help it advice or thoughts. Many thanks

A couple of months on now, and I'm not very happy...

I feel compelled to have a second opinion, but that is going to cost me once more. My plan is to wait until all of the juvederm has completely dissolved. I will then go to a different clinic and hope for the best. I will show them pictures of my lips pre injection, immediately post injection, a couple of weeks later and now. So they know what they're working with and hopefully can help me obtain something better than this.
Please not me this cost me £300 and I have no idea what that is in US dollars
