I went to a board certified plastic surgeon for a restylane injections to my lips. I have always hated my thin lips and never worn lipstick because I was far too self conscious to draw attention to them! I told the surgeon that I was very concerned about it being obvious that I'd had my lips done and that I preferred having 'too little' rather than 'too much.' The dental block hurt a lot but I didn't feel the actual Restylane injections hurt at all. I love the size of my lips (the surgeon used half a syringe and they look very natural), but the bruising has been terrible! It has been a week and there are purple/black dots on my lips. I called the surgeon's office and they said that it should take up to two weeks for the bruises to fade. While I love the difference the Restylane has made to the look of my lips, I'm not sure I would do it again because the bruising is so noticeable.
