Fat Transfer to Lips!! (Fat Injection, Lip Augmentation); Scottsdale, AZ
I have been fairly interested in getting my lips...
Day 1 - Duck Swelling!
I can eat with it, but it is kind of uncomfortable . Drinking is not possible without straws. I am consistently icing (with a paper towel blocking direct ice) and applying neosporin all over, including incision sites.
Fat Source- My belly!
The fine lines in the photo are from a compression garment I am wearing to make sure my tummy stays flat after the trauma incurred.
Day 2 Peeling & Swelling
Day 3 Feeling Isolated
It started last night when I could not leave the house because of the swelling, and it being Friday I figured everyone would be chatty. Everyone was out and about, which is okay, I knew there would be down time, but for some reason it felt pretty lonely. My friend and I were texting, and I decided to share about the procedure. Immediately, I was texted back sarcastically, "Wow, bet you look real good now after you went and cut yourself up."
I don't get why some people jump to judgment when it's something that makes me happy. Hope I am not bumming anyone out, but I figure you might go through the same emotions if you get the procedure, so I am trying to be honest. I'll feel better when my face is back to normal size, but today is just glum :-(
Day 4 Projection
1 Year later!
Take your time reading my full review, it is a lot of writing, but this is YOUR FACE we are dealing with. You cannot hide a botched face surgery! A few places in Scottsdale charge a consultation fee, which I am sure nets them more cash, but puts pressure on the client to get a procedure. Here, the consultation is free, and they do not rush you out the door if you have a lot of questions. I've probably had 3 consultations before I actually chose to have the procedure. Oh and I don't want to forget to mention Olivia, who is not only enthusiastic, but also pairs perfectly with Dr Henderson's well-rounded coverage of expectations and results. -Anyways- the procedure: During the surgery, which Dr Henderson and her scrub tech calmly talked me through the entire procedure. We joked about AC/DC while she was removing fat from my belly. When i felt worried about pain, Dr Henderson added local to the area without question. After the surgery, everything was very swollen, but Olivia bounded right in and assured me everything would be beautiful. Meanwhile, Dr Henderson went over the details for aftercare and the scrub tech (I feel like a jerk for not remembering her name) finally walked me out to my car. That's right! The whole procedure was done without anesthesia, so that lowered the cost, and allowed me to drive myself home rather than having to show my swollen lips to anyone! I can not wait til post op to see the final results! PM if you have any questions or want to see extra photos.
