I have had 3 fat augmentations along with many different lip fillers. I have not had much luck with my lips retaining the fat or filler for very long.
This is one of the reasons I chose to do the lip lift. Dr. Jocelyn Leveque in Pensacola, FL. did the sub nasal lip lift in the office. I had very little swelling and no bruising. I am healing nicely and very pleased.
