ats...still fake and swollen after close to two months?ats_syd wrote:Geez,that sounds really tough, do people ask how come your face changes /swollen every now and then?

I experienced the same thing for the underchin lipo a few mths back, but this seems to be taking longer... i really hope it's not nerve damage which i read could happen for jaw surgeries...
at first, chewing was a real bitch, and opening my mouth was like torture, because the implant caused swelling at the hinge, but i just ate a steak a few days back at Aston Express, first real piece of meat since th surgery
from the front? still big lei, i dun even wanna look direct at the mirror for now... ok, i'm being picky, no one said that i am a swollen freak, a few comments abt putting on wgt, so i think i look normal enuff. but 3 mths ago i did lipo, my face become nice and sharp, now look a bit chubby-cheeked again, not too happy abt it.
it still feels bulky, especially when i smile, can really feel the implant there. my chin took like 3 mths for that feeling to go away and to shrink to half its size... this implant is like 3 times bigger, i am now psyching myself up to only evaluate myself 9 mths later...
nope the implants were not screwed in, but i really doubt the implant can shift, it was damn difficult just to slip the implant in, and my face feels really stretched out, there just isn't any space for it to move around.
cos the implant haven't really been absorbed as part of the body, the area between my gums and my cheeks is quite huge, then food always get stuck there... really annoying... i taking all sorts of stuff to speed up the deswelling
I had chin implants done but I don't t think anyone noticed it even few days after the surgery. Rhino is ok too , once the swelling went down in about a week.
People who had implant-rhino :
How soon can you wear glasses/sunnies ?
I feel super uncomfortable wearing glasses that sits on my bridge,but I have to sometimes: to cover up my still-healing eyelids.
I am having a very tough recovering period with my eyelids : now into the 6th week and they still look fake and swollen.
I shouldn't have done rhino with eyelids at the same time,since I need the glasses to cover up my eyes.
hmm, that's odd, 7 weeks i already recovered already by then. buccal fat pad removal, the result is also dependent on how thick the pad is in first place, if not very thick, then the result may not be very obvious. Did you watch your diet after the lipo?adonz wrote:aadvark, how long did u take to achieve a slim face after ur face n chin lipo?
it's been 7 weeks for me. the swelling has subsided and i realise i'm back to my original face shape again... ROUND. i think my blood was sucked out instead of my fats cos when i tried to pinch my face, there is so much flesh to pinch! quite strange cos i did buccal fat removal as well so shouldn't it gives me a sunken look at the area between the side of my lips to my jawline?
n i look rounder in pics cos previously i had chubby cheeks which gave me a relatively sharp looking chin. But now everything is like one big circle. my relatively sharp chin does not look sharp anymore.. n one side of the face is rounder than the other
that depends on you, my 1st PS i did eyes nose, chin together, the pain was more than just one procedure of cos, and i was quite depressed during the recovery period, cos i looked hideous.candyeyes wrote:Hey aadvark-
think it's ok to do several stuff like lipo, nose, eyes, chin all at 1 go or to split em up into several visits?
I was thinking of finishing em in 1 seating but am worried that i'll be in terrible pain since all parts of my body will be cut, one form of another...
also, u know of anyone who did their eyes (the clipping method) redo em for the 2nd time?
yeah, it took me by surprise how long eyelids take also, but if u can get pass the odd whisperings behind ur back, i think the final result is quite worth it:Dats_syd wrote:Yunli :yunli wrote:

i was hoping it will look more or less normal in 2 months cause ill be starting my first job and dont want to look too scary!
did you ask dr nara for a high/low crease...left it for him to decide?
gosh, getting paranoid.
but if dont do together like no chance to do already when start work. ARGH!
Yes ,I am getting paranoid too.
I actually didn't ask for a new double eylid, I asked Dr Nara to make it balanced and with low crease. I had un-balanced eyes (one with higher crease and the other one was droopy obsecure crease.) In my case it's more like trimming off some excess skin on the droopy eyelid.
He told me that the swelling and bruisng will go away in about a week.
But didn't tell me how long before my eyes will look natural.
I am in my late 30's and he thinks incision method is necessary to trim off some skin and fat. (don't know how much he took off though)
I wish I did more homework before going ahead with the procedure re: recovery period, what to discuss during consultaion,researching on what I want and don't want.
My eyes are looking better each week, first 2 weeks are the hardest because they completely looked fake and swollen. Now the platform (the space between the lash line and the crease is still thick ,about 7mm),I have to wear heavy eye make-up to cover up the incision too.
Those who knows me definitely know I have something done on my eyes.
My opinion is : If you are very self concious about how people perceive you and you only have short period of time to recover, don't do it.
I have since trolling so many PS sites on the net and read so many infos : eyelid surgery will take at least 6 months to one year to fully settle .
