Later on that
night , the patient could not sleep
to excruciating pain in the lips that kept her awake most of
the night; she finally smeared some dental numbing gel on her mouth
that contained an over the counter remedy for tooth pain.
The next day, the patient's lips
were grossly swollen still
with black and blue bruises on the
corner of one lip.
3 - 4 days later, while the lips were still swollen from
they looked plumped and attractive and the patient
the pain was all worth it.
the results were short lived and the pretty
shrunk down to their original size within ten days,
black and blue bruises did last.
*Months later the blood vessels of the patient
are still black and blue and have not healed.
2 years later, the patient let us
know that the bruise on her side of
the lips had not gone away.
Always check verifiable before and after
Better yet, meet with patients who have had their lips
by the doctor, and make sure that the patients are over 40
and not 20 with perfect lips that really never needed
the first place. If a Doctor asks for a picture to be
immediately after the injection when the lips are deeply
swollen and plumped up, it is best to decline because
10 days later, previously plumped up lips will show a much
more authentic result after the swelling has settled,
a touch up might need to be done, or irregularities
might now show all over the lips.
Lips are in the middle of the face and should not be an
experimental zone for novice doctors or nurses.
Possible side effects from fillers
injected to the mouth or face:
-Broken blood vessels that may remain black and blue,
-lumps that may take years to dissolve,
-pain during and after the injection that should subside
in 3-4 days,
- white patches of products if improperly injected.
Patients should always check the syringe that will be
administered by the Doctor or the Nurse to
verify several factors:
1. The name of the product: Is this the product
that you requested?
2. Was it made in the USA, or from another credible
3. The Expiration Date:*All fillers should have an
expiration date marked on each syringe.
4. Appearance of product: Any product that looks
blurry instead of clear might have already expired or
may have been stored under inappropriate conditions and
should not to be applied in or out of your skin.
5. Lidocaine inside fillers or when applied on the skin
is toxic to the body while helping reduce pain during
treatments. If you are looking for plumper lips verify
Lidocaine does melt fat at the same time.
You will want to keep all the fat on your lips
in order to keep them plump.
6. Ha injections do not last, while Stem Cells fat
injections do and help rejuvenate the skin.
Side Effects of Lidocaine:
High blood pressure, swelling or redness of the skin at
of the injected area, constipation, nausea, vomiting,
tingling in the toes, fingers, or hands, dizziness...
Quantities of fillers to be injected per year are
to a certain amount that should be verified and not exceeded.
