Having perma lip done in the morning!
Have taken the meds regularly(valtrex, and antibiotics, along with something to help bruising and swelling. Opting not to take the Valium to help relax me because I don't Iike feeling "out of it" and want to be able to drive myself home.
I have packed a lunch box cooler with ice packs to take with me for the drive home(under 20min) so I am ready to go!

5 hours post implants

Procedure went well. Only discomfort was the numbing injections.. Now that I'm home and icing my lips every half hour there is some burning/tingling. Took one pain pill( Tylenol #3) made me dizzy so I might just take regular Tylenol until bed time. Seems like icing makes the burning worse, I guess because my lips are ao stretched and sensitive but I know I have to push through to keep the sweelling down or I will really be in pain later

Feeling much more bruised but less burning/tingling. Sleeping sitting up last night was horrible and iced and took pain meds every 4 hours or so. FYI don't plan on being able to out in public for the first several days.. I using my sons baby spoons to push food past my lips

Day 3

Swelling is done and so it the burning/tingling, but man oh man wish I could brush and floss my teeth! I'm more swollen around my mouth then my actual lips

Day 5 post op

I can talk and eat pretty much normally now, still sleeping propped up and icing several times a day but the swelling as gone a lot, still don't have natural movement when I talk with my top lip but I'm sure that will come with more time in letting the swelling go down. Will post pic tomorrow
