30 Year Old , tiny upper lip - Camberwell, AU
I've only hated two things about my face - my nose...
Second night. 33 hours post op.
I didn't mention but I did have muscle removed. I've been told to always get skin only and when I questioned him he told me that anything over 20mm he touches the muscle, anything under 20mm (philtrum length) it's skin only.
I'll do a photo in the morning before I shower then do another one once its cleaned up. Night!!
Error can't upload new photos?
Comparison photo... and wtf are people talking about!!
4 days today, not happy......
The swelling is mostly gone, I can't really put a figure on it but its barely noticeable.
****One thing I'm concerned about it the philtrum length. After the procedure was done I was shown the excised skin and it didn't look like 5 mm at all.
If I measure the philtrum from suture line to top of the cupids bow I'm getting around 19-20 mm??
Before the procedure I was measuring almost daily and consistently got 21-22 mm, but I understand my measurements may be 1-2 mm off . I was hoping for and *asked* for around a 15mm philtrum length (and said nothing bigger, and even asked a few times for 13-14mm ) after the procedure. My main issue was vertical vermillion height and I wanted that increased as much in height as "naturally" possible.
Now my lip looks nothing like the photos I put up on the day or the day after. Its gone back to looking thin and flat. I don't care about volume really just height. Sigh.................
looks like a 5% improvement.....
Revision in 8 days time. *happy face*
I'm really happy now that this is going to happen and my faith and confidence has been restored! I WILL HAVE A TOP LIP SOON!!!
Stitches out, healing well!
Philtrum is measuring 19-20 mm so it's certain not enough skin was removed first time around.
Only 48 hours until my revision so hopefully it all goes the same as first time around just with more skin removed.
Full face from Friday night!
Revision done today.
I can tell by comparing the two surgeries that this time it has been done better.
I wasn't charged anything which I was hoping for anyway.
Let's see how it goes this time. Two surgeries in 2 weeks!
Side by side
Quick bath selfie! Night 5 after revision
First photo with a proper smile!
The girls at reception were lovely, and Dr Anwar was great. I was nervous after seeing mixed reviews but with anything it's hard to know if they expected too much or weren't that great to start with idk! I was given Panadeine Forte, Antibiotics and cream to take home on the day. Had a review the next day (today) one in 10 days and then in 30. I'm not sure if I pay for the last two I assume it's all inclusive. I maybe would of liked more skin off but its too early to tell 19 hours after the procedure. I would have liked to see the markings beforehand and maybe shown him where i wanted my lip to be but I got caught up in the moment and didnt ask. At the moment its just where i want it but if it drops as it heals (dont know if it does/will) it may be just under what i wanted.
