Lip Reduction, Double Eyelids, Hair Removal

Postby DaniHodge » Tue, 08 Apr 2008 6:33 am

Hi everyone, I need a bit of a help. Since I was a kid I've always been teased for my oversized lips yet teeny tiny eyes. It's hard to be called names and to be identified with "big lips". Whenever people were talking about me, they always had to say "dani with the huge lips". People making drawings of me, pictures, cartoons and they always focused on how huge my lips are and how small my eyes are. It's difficult to see those pictures end up on the back of the class or the notice board.

It was a big deal for me but now, i can't tell you how much it affects my life. I'm 20 years old, i'm 160 cm and i'm 72 kgs. As you may notice I'm a bit heavier than average and so, my face is bigger ( I naturally don't have prominent cheekbones) and hence my eyes look way smaller and my lips look way bigger. I've never had a boyfriend and one of the main reasons is I don't have confidence. I know people keep saying, confidence is about who you are inside, if you're confident with what you have inside, you'll be confident outside. But in reality, it's not how it works. Especially if after 15 years you still get teased by various people. I'm tired of all this, and since I have 2 month holiday in july, I'd like to do something with my lips and eyelides and perhaps hair removal.

Unfortunately I know nothing about cosmetic surgery and the idea of pain just scares me to death. I need help from all of you who might be able to give me any information as which doctor I should go to and how painful it's gonna be and how much it's gonna cost. Any information will be appreciated.

Thank you guys for at least reading the whole thing lol i know it's really long. I really really hope I can change my life through a surgery. I'm relying on your help.

I just did a lip reduction at yanhee hospital in thailand.I know this was posted like 2years ago but if u still need help or u have any questions feel free to ask.It seems that we have the same problem.Huge lips and traumatized by ppl around you judging u based on how you look.And our age does not leave a huge gap either.Im 24 this year and you would be 22 now i assume.Im now about 9 days to recovery from my surgery.I just did my lower lips and would like to do my upper lips soon.And i would love a companion this time.It was really depressing for me the last time as i had to go through it all alone.And i have nobody to share it with even makes it harder.Being alone in a foreign country doesnt help either.u can contact me through email me at nan_157@hotmail.com

hey boii...may i ask.did u do lip reduction before and if you did,and the surgeon used absorbable sutures how long does it takes for it to dissolve?cos its already 11 days since my surgery and the sutures are still on.Should i go to a gp to have it removed?Cos i dont want any suture scars.And the scar on my lip is very visible when my mouth is at rest.Is it the same for you?Or did the surgeon juz f my face up!

On second thought....although the scar is visible when my mouth is at rest .Its not visible when its closed.I can see the diffrence now in my lips volume.Not too drastic.Just enough to not look abnormal.Its still thick thou.I think right now its reduced to 15% and its only 2weeks post op.Im sure it will reduce more as the time passes.Patience is absolutely a virtue.There is still a small swell on the left side but its steadily subsiding.About the stiches...Its still there.I tried removing it yesterday at a specialist but the stiches is now binded to my lip tissue as it is dissolving.The doc tried to pull out the stiches and it was excruciating.So he just cut the ends to remove the tension of the sutures.It was still painful thou but at least now i can go back to work.And most importantly..im now more confident of myself =D im still planning to reduce my upper lip.But this time ill go somewhere else..i wont recommend yanhee to anybody...to anybody out there wanting to do PS please save up more and go to a certified PS that actually care about you.Seriously,by paying more money you can make ppl care about you.hmph,humans.This is from my own personal experience.I dont want to comment more.But overall its 6.5/10 so far...im still waiting for the final result.It is said around 3mths.So yea im waiting =D

Hi DaniHodge,

Are you really sure you want to do lip reduction?? cos i feel that women having full lips look so sexy! Think of Angeline Jolie, Taiwanese actress Shu Qi, model Christy Turlington,..... they look fabulous with their full lips!

Perhaps you could just try to reduce some weight n go for the double eyelid surgery n i think that two alone would make a great difference. I think if you have nice double eyelid eyes, it would pair off nicely with sexy full lips! :D

Just concerned that you might regret later on should you go for lip reduction. I would like a bit fuller lips but wouldnt go for any injection or filler cos i heard it is very painful and the lips would be very swollen!

Cheers.
