I can not express how happy I am with this...

I can not express how happy I am with this procedure! I HATE lip injections and saw this procedure on REAL SELF. I had never even heard of it--my doctor is THE BEST! I would let No ONE touch my face---but him, He has done procedures for me for over 25 years---I am 57 and he keeps me looking great! if I get brave I may post my body---BUT he is VERY conservative and he was not certain he wanted to do the procedure at first. I begged. The first lift was done a month before and even though I had no pain, no scar--I wanted more. I pleaded again and he performed the surgery again this Tuesday. I am very happy! I would have liked to have a tad more...but I am happy. He had me take 1 valium and 1 Ativan prior 45 min and there was no pain. I had a little discomfort and I mean a tiny bit a few hours at home, but I took 1 pain pill and that was it. I would like to load photos, but they are not uploading I will keep trying. I LOVE this surgery, my great doctor, Phillip Nakano and his wonderful staff in Duluth, GA at Prima Plastic Surgery!

I need TO be able to upload the photos--A picture speaks 1000 Words!

Another "After"

3 months out Close up

This is a close up 3 months almost exact. There is no makeup, but I do have on lipstick because I am about to run out---I saw the text needing to see the close up. As you can see---VERY minimal scar IF you can even see it. I can not. I mean---if I put on glasses and got up REAL close there might be a VERY faint red line and then maybe not because nothing is really there. AGAIN--I am unusual in that I scar very well after any surgery and my scars fade away to nothing very quick. I also have IMO a Highly skilled surgeon. Am I happy? YES. Hope this helps!

7 Months Since Liplift HAPPY!

It has now been 7 months since my lip lift with Dr. Phillip Nakano Duluth, GA. I am VERY happy with this procedure. you can not see the very, very almost invisible scar and I can not see it at all most of the time--REMEMBER----your lip will go down quite a bit in about a month. I liked mine a little better when I still had that swollen look--But he did a beautiful job! I was NEVER in any pain-NEVER.

4 mm taken

Ok--I have gotten a few emails asking me how much Dr Nakano took off ---the skin on my upper lip. 4 mm. Your lip will go down and I do not mean in a couple or 3 months--it will continue to go down some up until the 6th month--mine just went down a little more. I LOVE the result but I also love the real pouty look so---who knows I may have him take a little more this summer--BUT no scar. I love the surgery.I LOVE Dr NAKANO and ALL HIS STAFF!

8 months out and NO SCARS!

I wanted to update everyone thinking about this procedure. The below photo was taken today; I have on no lip liner or lipstick. I was at the window but the light was not great-As you can see the swelling continues to go down...I don't think it will go down anymore. I love this procedure. My scars are invisible--I never had any pain or anything go wrong. I still have the nice little cupid bow this procedure gave me. I would never hesitate to do this again and of course, I feel I have the greatest doctor in the world, Dr. Phillip Nakano Prima Plastic Surgery---

A year out!

Ok---it has been almost 1 year. I had no lipstick on in the below photo. I have NO scars that I can see. I have had NO fillers---Funny, everyone thinks I have filler in my lips..No! This procedure I love. All swelling is gone and I wish it were a tad more swollen like a few months ago, but what a great procedure! AND as I have stated I had no pain during the procedure or after. The numbing shots to me---were not that bad. Dr. Nakano is so skilled that I think he is so good at what he does or at least I had no pain!
Atlanta Plastic Surgeon

Dr. Nakano in my opinion is the BEST. He is conservative but very skilled and I would say an artist. He is kind--yet honest and direct. I would not let ANYONE touch my face, but him. My lips look gorgeous! AND he has the best staff you could ever hope to find! Caring---Compassionate and wonderful! He has done several procedures on me and I love him!
