I recently had lip injections. I went to Sistine Plastic Surgery, Dr. Leong. He was amazing! To start off he explained everything to me in my consultation. He took his time to make sure I understood everything, good and bad. Once we were done with the consultation he took some pictures and we headed to the procedure room. He first asked me what I didn't like about my lips. He took what I had to say and told me if it was doable or not. I told him I wanted my very thin lips to have more volume but have a natural look. He used a dental block on me to numb my lips which did not hurt at all. I was very surprised being as this was my first time ever having a dental block. Once the block was done he left me to sit and wait for it to sink in. When he came back in we got straight into the injections. He used a micro cannula which is so much safer then needles (he explained this to me in full detail during the consultation) I could not even feel it! On some spots all I felt was a little pressure but not painful at all. He was able to do the injections in about 15 minutes but did not rush at all. The entire time he gave me a mirror to see what they looked like and he actually asked my opinion throughout the whole procedure. I am so happy with my lips. I left the office with basically no swelling or bruising! Later on in the day I did start to swell and when I woke up the next day I was a little swollen. It wasn't anything horrible. And no bruising at all! Throughout the 2nd day the swelling decreased. Today is the 3rd day and I woke up with just a tiny bit of swelling in my top lip (that is where we added the most filler) they look amazing. And not to mention so natural! I will deffinetly be going back to Dr. Leong. He is amazing! He did tell me they'll last 3 1/2 months although some people they last till 6 months so we shall see! I may want to go a tad bit bigger in the future just because my lips were so thin to begin with. All in all it was a pleasant experience!
