I have always had thin lips and wanted a fuller top lip to balance. It's great now when I use lipstick and smile. My lip doesn't disappear. I documented my journey from day 1 on YouTube
The dental block was absolutely necessary for me to get this done or I wouldn't have been able to without it. I couldn't feel it at all. Once it wore off I iced my lips. Within a few days the duck feeling went down and by one month they were where I wanted them. I had numbness for up to a month after.
I would hold off on doing this again until I find my lip has gone back to its normal size. I only had my top lip done. I also got free Botox with this procedure and got it in my forehead for prevention. I love the final result.
