Cheek implants inside mouth. Does the incision affect lip shape? (Photo)

5 weeks ago, i got cheek implants.. and this incision inside my mouth somehow i guess pulled the skin... my lips used to close in straight line.. now when i close when mouth.. u can see that they dont close and it curve up.. my lips was thin and now they are even thinner.. its even crooked because one side is pulled up more than the other side.. is it really permanent? I asked my doctor 2 weeks ago, and he said it will be fine.. but i dont see improvements at all since first day of surgery.. please help

Swelling Cessation with Radiofrequency

You still have some swelling which can impinge on your lips. I recommend following up with your Dr. about after care. Radiofrequency treatments may help reduce some of the swelling. See an expert. Best, Dr. Emer
