Any reviews for lip lift? Local or overseas?

Where's the best place to go to get the corner lifted?
And cost?

The corners of my lips started to turn downwards and shrink, and what a nightmare when i put on lipstick, not only would it bleed into the lips, it made me look like right old miserable cow, even on a good day.

I had Botox around my lips and Restylane fillers by a lady doc at Asia HealthPartners, who is renowned for doing lip fillers. I was advised there would be some swelling for a day, which i am fine with, since I was at home with the kids all the day that day. It was done with a numbing cream and a local anaesthetic, so it was virtually painless, swelled up for a day but fine after that. I was advised to go back in 6 months time for a refill when it wears off. It was worth every cent, Not going to be Angelina Jolie, just have more kissable lips and nicer smile now. Can't wait to flaunt them to my girlfriends at the clubhouse this weekend!

Hey Megan,
what fillers did you get? Was it painful?

Hi tinkerbell,

The Doc used Restylane LIPS to plump up my lips and turn up the corners. She injected some local anaesthetic after numbing cream was applied, so it wasn't painful. I felt some pressure during the injection which was a bit odd, but it wasn't exactly what I'd call pain... more like a stretching, full sensation.
The swelling was there for a day, felt a bit sensitive during that day and then went away the afterwards. All in all, it was a very tolerable experience. I'm quite pleased.

Hi spykcu,

The doc advised that it is a temporary filler as it is so biocompatible and very natural, and lasts about 6 months.

Temporary is not too bad a thing I think as one's face may look unnatural if something is too fake and permanent? I am quite happy to do my fillers every 6-9 months. My face has changed a bit over time, I think we all do and it is good to keep with the changes. Just let the doc sculpt and mould you as time changes your face :D

that would depend how much the fillers cost. If it's a few K SGD. Then really no point. Might as well go for the real thing.

Besides when fillers are used by noob doctors it can be very dangerous
