V-Y Lip Augmentation - Sunset, LA

Initially I had gone in as an out of town patient wanting a lip lift. I had sent in all required documents to have a email consult but had learned that when I had gotten there that the lip lift was not recommended. I instead opted for the v-y procedure. He said he would make a very slight change and very slight it was indeed. I almost don't even notice the difference at all. I did want a subtle change but I also did want to be happy with the results. I am aware that plastic surgery is never perfect but I have spent far too much money to have this be my result. I am disappointed.
I agree that there is only a slight difference. Your lips are beautiful in both photos however.

I think you had beautiful lips to begin with. You look fine but I guess you are more concerned about the money you spent. I guess you will have to chalk this one up to a risk you take with any elective plastic surgery. Like valborg said at least you are not disfigured or botched. I had a lip lift years ago & it came out great. I had another one done 5 weeks ago & I think my upper lip is a little over done. I am sure it will settle down with time. Maybellineo

I am left with a slightly unsymmetrical upper lip and barely noticeable results.
