I chose to get an upper lip lift because my upper lip is flat and when I add filler, I can get a duck-like appearance. I was awake for the procedure, but had been given valium and pain killers. I am nervous about the outcome because I still do not have tooth show! Also, my lip is looking flat again, and it's making me very nervous. I wanted to get a curved upper lip. It has been three days since the procedure (so I guess I'm on day 4). Any advice?

Today is day 5, and I am feeling much better about everything. My nostrils are less flared, and my lips are more balanced. I still do not have tooth show, so I'm really hoping I end up getting some.

Tomorrow will mark two weeks since I had the lip lift! I am healing pretty well, but, as you can tell in the photos, you can still see something there. I added some new photos that weren't taken with a webcam. :) But yeah. I can't help but think I will not be getting tooth show. I just don't even really see how it's possible with my mouth. At any rate, I am still glad that I have more of a curved upper lip.

Ok, I officially rated the procedure worth it! So, you can see my teeth when my mouth is slightly open at an angle now, so there is improvement! They are not visible straight on, so that's somewhat disappointing, but I think my teeth may be the problem. I think I'm going to talk to a dentist about getting veneers to make my teeth a bit longer. I SO want normal tooth show. Anyway, I love the new shape of my lips, and I'm happy that I had the procedure.

I am adding some photos from today. It has now been a little over 5 weeks, so I think what I am seeing now is going to be pretty much the final result.
