With the aid of a topical anaesthetic applied to my lips, the procedure was painless and only took about 15 minutes (I had just over one mil injected, mainly in my top lip).
For the next three days my lip was very swollen and slightly bruised, but after that time I was able to go about my daily life with renewed confidence. My lips looked fuller but natural, and anyone I told was surprised I had had a filler done that often gets tainted with 'trout pout' nightmare stories, because I looked great! love having fuller, natural looking lips and Dr. Matousek did a stellar job.
In a few months time I will certainly have the procedure redone, and I recommend it to anyone who has always wanted to do it- just go for it!
