I had a,slightly thin upper lip, nothing to bad. I got 1 syringe juverderm In my lips and asked for a minimal natural look. Since getting it everyone keeps askin what I've dome to my face and saying I looked much better before. The only person that thinks it looks 'nice' is the women who works at the so called 'award winning' destination skin clinic in reading.
I'm writing this to warn others. I stupidly believed the clinic when they told me no one would know n it would look natural. I now believe no lip filler looks good or natural u just have to look at the rich and famous celebrities who still don't look awful with them
lips have calmed down slighlty. still wouldnt do it again
It has been 11 days since my lip filler injections, the swelling stage was very stressful and it was hard having to explain to everyone at work what I've had done.
I still think they're too big and
the top one sticks out quite ducky looking, they are also still uneven.
The recovery was longer than I was lead to believe, I could not move my lips well whilst speaking which was obvious to others, and even now my lips have settled down a lot people still say 'oh you got your lips done'!. Definitely not the subtle enhancement I was looking for, a few people have said they like them although most prefered them before.
I guess I've learnt a lesson, if it's not broken don't fix it. I now think surgery should only be done If you have a defect, natural looks best 90% of the time. Chasing your ideal look is time consuming never ending and ultimately not worth it.
lips looking quite natural now
It's been 4 weeks now since treatment and things have improved a bit. Seem to have a few bumps when stretch ing my lips and looking closely. Still have the asymmetry but I doubt people notice that. A few people have said they look nice, and don't really notice them anymore, which is good! the swollen duck lip was quite embarrassing!
I don't think any one that doesn't know me well would know I've had anything done.
I doubt I'd have it done again although it doesnt look bad now, it just seem s you look at pics of any celebrity that s had it done and 95% of the time it looks ridiculous. I think maybe they get used to the bigger look and think they need them fuller...I don't want to get into that cycle, they end up looking like plastic clowns but seem to think it looks good!
Hope my review has helped someone make a better informed decision
improved a bit more
So its been 7 weeks since the juverderm injections now. Ive had quite a few compliments on them now, they have gone down even more which is good.
They still look uneven from the front which I's annoying. I hope this goes as the juverderm disappears . They do look ok from the side or 3/4 view though, I seem to have a lot if lines on lips now which I didn't before. Which is strange as it's meant to fill out lines not make them!
lips look fine now
It's been 4 months now gosh time has flown this year! My lips look fine now hardly noticeable I've had anything just a tiny bit more volume than previously which is what I initially wanted. Lots of people say they like them which us a good sign I guess. Just wish I hadn't had to go thru rhe first 3 weeks looking like a duck then people might actually if thought they were natural lol! Hope this is encouraging to any one in the same situation I was.
satisfied with result now
Has took 4 months to get here but really like the results now. I guess they over filled to start with maybe because they wanted the results to last longer
Anyway I'd probably recommend for going for as little as possible to start then build up if you want more, to avoid getting overly obvious duck lips to start.
