I had gore-tex softform implants placed in my top and bottom lips 9 months ago. First, the injections given to numb the areas were extremely painful. It has been 9 months and my lips feel hard and I can feel four different bumps to on the top and two on the bottom where the implants end. The bottom implant looks ok. The top one is higher than my lip on one side. My smile is unatural looking. I don't look good when I smile at all.
I went back to the doctor several times she just tells me to do lip exercises. I do the exercises and the only change I notice is tingling and an uncomfortable almost painful feeling when I do. I wish I never had it done but I am afraid to have them removed for fear of what I will be left looking like without them. I also can't afford to have them removed. I am still paying off the initial surgery.
