Chronicles of a lip lift Sugar Land, TX

Hi girls!! I'm laying in bed at the Staybridge in...

Hi girls!!
I'm laying in bed at the Staybridge in Texas a very nice place indeed, tomorrow at noon I will be finally getting my upper lip lifted !!! I'm so excited I can't sleep. Maybe is the jet lag as well. Anyways I am posting some before pics. Send me good energies and pray for me!!! Yeeewww! Till tomorrow.

Done!

... Ok it's done! Things to do before. Buy the medicines you will need before the procedure so you won't have to think about it.
Disinfectant hydrogen peroxide.
Buy your baby food as well.
Water and straws.
The doctor took 5 millimeters from my 2.1 cm. the numbing shots are painful, the procedure is fast and a bit weird.
The doctor and assistants were amazing.
You will fill a mild medium pain right after the procedure is over, because the numbing shots bring a feeling of burning. So I will suggest to get a pain pill asap.
The results are good. I will be able to really tell when the swelling goes down.

hi ME AGAIN

I had the procedure just 6 hours ago, the scar looks fine it bled a bit when I ate, the pain pills I am taking are really good! Yeeewww!!! I feel like a bit stoned... I have to sleep sitting so for now I just eat baby food and watch tv... I wanted to add that I started taking ARNICA MONTANA 5 homeopathic globules tree times a day 2 weeks before the procedure and I am still taking it, it helps healing faster and prevent bruising.

I am pretty swollen

I had a check today with Dr. H. and my upper lip and nose are pretty swollen, so swollen that the gap between nose and upper lip is as before 2.1cm!!! He was really confident that I will get a good result when the swelling goes down, and said that if I will want more excised I can come after six month for a free revision. I really hope I won't have to do it again, because it's really quick but also intense. I will update pictures as soon as the swelling goes down. I CAN'T WAIT!!!! Today I went to the whole food store just close to the clinic and did some shopping. I had a gauze with tape surrounding the wound just to protect it from sun and dust. You are pretty good to do normal things the day after, but I still felt I needed to rest, the medicines and the pain killers and the adrenaline shot you get during the operation are all a bit tiring for the body. Bye xxx

Painkillers

I forgot to tell you that when I woke up this morning I didn't feel any pain so I stopped taking the painkillers....

The swelling

The swelling is going down this is the end of my second day after surgery. It is still swollen, but the naso-labial zone it's not painful anymore, but it is still a bit where the incision line is. I'm feeling better, and I'm eager to see the results!

I am in NY

7.55 pm, day 4.
My face is deflating. Now the serum is on the sides of my chin, and the bottom nose is still swollen and a little bit sore. I look better, my lips are showing a little tiny bit of teeth. I ate a salad and a sandwich for lunch, but the latter was a little bit complicated to eat, pulling at times the inner nose, I wouldn't recommend it. Then I met Zizi !!! She came to pic me up at the airport and we had dinner together. It's such a relief meeting with someone that has passed through the same as me, chatting about this surgeries and feeling totally free to be able to talk about it, being understood, without having to justify yourself. We are like sisters already! She is stunning in person, inside out. Zizi we told each other already but again, I'm really glad we met! I can't wait to remove my stitches. But I'm not sure if it is on day 5 or 6? Does somebody knows????

Pics

Hi girls. I am posting some pics 14 days post op.

The scar

The scar is healing, it's probably a bit red because I had a very bad bronchitis and cold for the last few days.
I took the stitches off by my self on day 5. I can still feel the dissolvable internal stitches they give a stiff feeling underneath the scar line when I move my nose. Girls remember to not touch the scar for the first 7 days.

The review

Hey the site doesn't give me the option to change from "not sure" to "worth it"....
Texas Plastic Surgeon

I just had a Skype chat with doctor Horndensky and he is a friendly man. I will update soon. Dott. H. is a good surgeon and human being, really down to earth. His staff it's amazing as well.

No, I'm not sure if the nose shape changes with lip lift that only cuts skin I heard that wen u do a lip lift and cut muscle though the nose changes but not sure that's what I heard. So far I love the results but I still think I should of removed 2 more mm for best results :).

Hi, at first because of the internal stitches and the swelling underneath the incision line the right nostril looked different from the left, it's been two months now and thank God it all went back to normal. no changes in nostrils shape.

Hi! There was no change in nostril shape. Underneath the right nostril and the incision line there was a little swelling because of the internal stitches that made my right nostril look different. It's all gone now and they are back to be my usual nostrils.

Hi Fairy Green Eyes, your lips look so pretty! The amount of tooth show looks absolutely perfect. I actually just had a skype consultation with Dr H today and thought he was GREAT, and am planning to fly to Houston in May to have this done with him. Super excited!! I was wondering, since I noticed you put "not sure" for whether you're happy or not - is this because of the stiffness of the dissolvable stitches? Or is there something else you're not happy with? Just wanted to be sure :) Congratulations on your beautiful lips!!

Hi Miss thanks! There is almost no tooth show, and I will be back to do a revision in 6 months. I am pretty happy so far but I wanted a radical change. i always loved very full natural lips. Anyways not sure is because the site doesn't make me change it don't know why...

Ohh I see. I think your lips look ridiculously gorgeous and full, but I think I remember you mentioning in a previous comment that Dr H will let you go back in 6 months to get more excised for free...could always do that! It's so awesome that he offers this.

Bellisima I know exactly how much you want the tooth to show, and I'm sorry you couldn't get that on your first visit. I'm happy I'll see you again this summer when the weather will permit us to see more often. I love your new look, a lot . I'm positive if he can take 2 more cm you will look even better. I found your booklet in my car btw. Love ya Bella.

Hello, I'm from Texas and considering a lip lift as well, your lips look great and the incision is perfect. so how about when you smile? did it change your smile? could you post a picture smiling when your able to do that? I noticed all the pictures of lip lifts never smile in the picture so not sure if it changed their smiles!! Thank you for your awesome post btw

Thank u for ur smiling photo :D, ur lips look sooooo good :). The doctor did a great job with the incision too it's almost invisible!!! I already booked a consultation with him ;), so is it tight to smile? Did it alter ur smile? I saw ur smile looked a bit tight but ur just 9 days post so that's understandable! Thanx so much for all the details u are posting it's very helpful :)

Can't wait to hit the museums with you today :-]. I am so happy you got the courage and joined the liplift community. Even though I don't meet all the girls on RS, the way you wrote first to me made me feel that meeting you it will a lot of fun. I was right. You're such a special girl. I appreciate your friendship :-]. Love ya Bella
