Beautiful Lip Lines!!!!!! NOOOOOO PAIN! - Newport Beach, CA

Dr. Elam put Retylane in my lips to define the lip line. I am 47 years old and as we age your lip line fades. I did NOT want duck lips. He always listens to his patients and makes them look natural!!!! He has done other procedures on me and I have been so happy with everything! I am adding pictures of my lips. They are swollen as he just injected them 2 hours ago. I will post another picture tomorrow so you can see what they look like after the swelling goes down. Hopefully soon he will laser my face. This will remove fine lines and discolorations. Please follow my blog. I will post pictures everyday and hopefully videotape the procedure!

Your lips look great! Definitely a big reduction in the swelling.

I hope your hand is healing up well too!

Grinch smile - hahaha! Love that description! Yeah, I figured things were feeling a little weird with the product, the swelling, and all. I'm sure they will feel better soon. :)

Your lips look so natural, and look nothing near 47.

Did the doctor administer more restalyne after the inital injections? I was told mine were done and the Dr. had me spelling the alphabet and gave me injections under my smile lines. This did not do the trick, as my 20 year old son knows Nothing,m, yet continues to call me "Duck Lips"! I lied and told my "future clients" my li8ps were not finishes". I feel like an arse. =P

Dr. Elam and his staff deserve more stars than are allowed. They are always so professional and caring. Dr. Elam was referred to me by a very happy patient and I couldn't be happier. I carry his business cards and refer him to anyone interested in feeling better about themselves.
