Dr. Haworth took his time in my consults listening to me and was very understanding of me wanting to look natural and even finances.
He gave me options and talked about every step of the process including what to expect while I recovery. His staff has checked on me regularly even at almost 4 weeks post op now and answer every call and email I have made including the ones where I am freaking out a little about the swelling or numbness I am experiencing.
So far all I can say at 3 1/2 weeks post op is that I am looking good, my husband and even my family says so and that is reassuring considering I have one of those brutally honest families that doesn't sugar coat a thing.
I truly am receiving some of the most attentive and caring medical care I have ever recieved.
From a previous attempt at a lip lift and lower vy, I was left with a scar beneath my nose that was too low I was always covering up with makeup, and my lower lip was long and in the middle the tissue was very thin and tissue had been seperated...it felt like thin skin in the middle and a ball of flesh on each end of my lower lip.
Anyway, currently I am 3 1/2 weeks post op from a revisoin lip lift and revision lower VY.
I hate the numbness I am having right now, not being able to fully smile, my top lip not moving right, very stiff. Also the lower lip feels so thick in the middle almost like a soft little gumball of flesh..yet I know him bringing my tissues back together in the middle means its gonna be swollen for a while.
I knew this was part of the process and I still have several weeks of recovery to go, yet it's still hard dealing with and I feel a little freakish right now. I am not too worried since the office and doc are checking on me to make sure I am doing okay and have let me know they want to make sure I am happy with the end result. It was recommended I get Fraxel on my scar/incision line at 4-6 weeks so I plan to make an appt for that next week. more pics to come.
