Ok, so for about 4 years I had been wanting my lips done. If you asked any of my friends what the number one thing I talk about is, it would be my lips. I was always very very insecure about how small my lips were and getting them done was the only logical solution.
Over the last 2 years I had 3 appointments scheduled to get them done but I chickened out every time. I knew I wanted them done sooo badly but I almost just couldn’t bring myself to go through with it.. price also played a huge factor.. and I HATE needles.
I did research almost daily on different places to actually have the procedure. I wanted the best of the best but I also needed a reasonable price. I watched hundreds of YouTube videos on other experiences with it and all seemed to be positive, they even said the pain level was about a 2 out of 10 ( was about a 6 for me.)
Fast forward to present day, well 5 days ago.. I GOT THEM DONE!
While I was in the patient waiting room, nervous as all get out, the nurse brought me 2 ice packets and told me to hold them against my lips literally until the actual procedure started.
I filled out some paperwork and then started my consultation. The Dr asked me what I wanted size wise and other basic questions.
I got one full syringe of Juvederm Ultra, in my research this was the most popular.
The results are immediate so as he was filling my lips I could see them getting bigger, which sounds great but since I have a fear of needles, it made me sick…. lol
Like I almost passed out 3 times…… the staff was EXTREMELY caring and gave me water, a stress ball, and a cold rag to put on my head. Now don’t let this be your only impression on how my experience was, I am just very sensitive to anything involving needles, I kind of expected this.
I’m going to be completely honest, I did not like them at first.. I actually cried when I got back out to my car. I think I had just waited so long for it and I hyped it up sooo much that I was let down a lot. It seemed like they were uneven and they were not as big as I wanted them.
HOWEVER, I had very small lips to begin with and I was told beforehand that in order to get as big as I wanted I would have to come in again for another full syringe. *eyeroll*
As for the uneven part, I was told to massage out my lips if I noticed anything that seemed off.
The next day I woke up and they were very swollen which is completely normal. The swelling would go down around 5 o’clock everyday and then swell back up the next morning. This went on for about 4 days.
Right now my lips are the size that they are going to stay. Still not completely satisfied with the size but I can always change that. I actually received many comments on my lips which came as a shock to me because I really couldn’t see much of a change myself.
OVERALL, I really love the shape of them and I really do like the change they made.
