Lip Lift - Morristown, N.J.

I have been researching this procedure for about 2...

I have been researching this procedure for about 2 years. The area between my nose and upper lip kept getting longer and I had a horizontal crease under my nose. You can see the crease in my before pictures.

I researched surgeons in NJ, NYC, FL, MD and VA. I kept coming back to this board to see if there was anyone new posting a surgeon from NJ.

One day I was doing another search for a NJ surgeon who knew what a lip lift was and I came upon Dr. Rafidizeh. I researched every site looking for a bad review. All I found were amazing reviews from happy patients. I looked at pictures of all his procedures. I loved his work. So, I called his office the next day to schedule a consultation. My consultation lasted about 30-40 minutes. He also had a patient in the office who he had done a lip lift on 5 years ago and asked her if she would mind meeting me. I loved her lip lift! A few days later I called to schedule my lip lift surgery.

My surgery was at 1:30pm on a Tuesday. I drove myself to his office. The surgery was done under local anesthetic. The pain from the local anesthetic was the worst part. The entire time his nurse held my hand. Even for the surgery. She didn't let go once. The surgery lasted about 40 minutes. When I was done they gave me a mirror. My first words were "holy sh-t", lol. I looked pretty! There was no line. The incision was so hidden and so neat. I couldn't stop looking in the mirror. They told me to come back in 6 days to get the stitches out.

I was very swollen, and also very uncomfortable while the local anesthetic was wearing off. I took the week off from work so I could go back after my stitches were out. I called his office a few times with questions and they were SO nice. On that Saturday evening I was concerned about one area of the stitches. It looked fine, but what if it wasn't?? It was a Saturday. I couldn't wait until Monday. I called his emergency line and he called me back. He had me text him photos of the area and said it looked fine, but said that he would see me in his office the next day (Sunday) just to be sure. Sure enough it was fine.

I went to work the day after I got the stitches out. I didn't tell anyone I was having the surgery. A few people asked me what was different. They said I looked great..was it my skin? Did I lighten my hair? It has now been 2.5 months since I had the surgery. I don't wear makeup on the scar because you can't see it. It's amazing.

I posted before and after pictures. The before pictures are first. You can see the long distance from my nose to my upper lip and you can also see the horizontal crease. I used to have to lift my lips so much just to get a smile. I forget sometimes that I don't have to do that now. I am not wearing makeup on the scar in any of these pictures. I am so happy I had the surgery!!!!
