The surgeon did not make the incision at the base of my nose. Now I have a very visable scar about one centimeter below my nose in a half circle shape. The scar is very noticable and I cannot conceal it with make up. I am very self conscious about it. I was told by other surgeons it will not "go away" that it should not have been done this way. Now I suffer with this horrible scar. I wish I would have been told by the surgeon his plans to make the scar so low. I never would have paid so much for so much dissatisfacton. Be very careful about this procedure as you may get untoward results like me. My mouth now looks like a monkey.

Lip Lift Revision
I only have this advice for persons looking to have facial surgery. Consult once Consult twice. Never decide on the first consultation. It may be the receptionist or some one in the office that puts you off.. It could be just an off day for the Doctor.
Trust your gut. Do not rush into this. Take your time if you can. Get referrals from the doctors office. If they are any good they will have people call you. Of course as always it is best to have it done properly the first time. Revision work cost twice as much and the results are not going to be as good as if you had it done properly the first time.
Be very careful when going "under the knife" You may feel very comfortable on the first consultation. Beware. Don't do anything and don't pay them untill they explain in full what the outcome will be. This scar extends in 2 places toward my lips. I now face many revisions to my FACE,EYES & EARLOBES and the SUBNASAL LIPLIFT will need to be revised also. I found out today that the sub nasal lip lift has been cut so low that a revision to place the scar where it should be is not possible. I will need it revised but it will never be the way it should have been done in the first place. There is no reason that I should have been told "it doesn't heal well the other way". If done properly it heals very well.
