Lip injections plastic surgery

Common Questions and Answers about Lip injections plastic surgery


Avatar f tn Dr. Doctor, I recently had laser surgery on my lower lip. I had a vein that was pulsating and the MFS decided to laser the vein. It has disappeared, however, I have a small bump inside my lip. I would like to know if these things go away on their own, or should I be massaging the area to break down what I assume is scar tissue. The procedure took place about three months ago. I've made an appointment with a plastic surgeon to get his advice also. Please let me know your thoughts on this.
Avatar n tn Surgical removal of lump? Or/And 2. I was also wondering if injections to plump the unscarred lip around the lump would be possible to conceal the lump? 2. If I seek a surgeon to remove the lump, who would be most practiced at this sort of procedure?, and what would their medical occupation be? (i.e. Maxillofacial?), and what qualifications should they have?
Avatar f tn slept mostly after surgery (8am) but woke up later in the afternoon and noticed the left side of chin/lip from corner of mouth to center of chin/lip was numb. This was different than the other side that was no longer feeling the anesthesia. Day 2: No pain. The left side of chin and lip from the corner to the center of the jaw is STILL numb. My extraction sites are a bit sore but no real pain to speak of.
Avatar m tn You may choose to get the surgery for cosmetic reasons, or you might need it because of a prior surgery on your face. These are the type of implants that are normally done: • Lower jaw implant. The implant is placed inside the lower lip. The incision site will be secured with sutures that will dissolve in about one week. The procedure takes one to two hours. • Cheek implant. The implant is put in place either through your upper lip (internally) or through your lower eyelid.
Avatar m tn He said it was the worst case of polyps he has ever seen, no wonder I was having so much pain. So once again I scheduled a surgery. The surgery is in 2 days and the last 2 days I have done no but read on the internet about the surgery and reading of other people that have had it done. Let me tell u I haven’t read one positive thing yet.
Avatar n tn My daughter at age six was attacked by a dog, her right cheek was ripped back, her right corner of her lip was ripped also. Racing her to Anchorage emergency plastic surgery was preformed, resulting in a stitch scar in her right corner of her mouth, it only scarred the lip, not the cheek. She hates it, and we want to get it fixed, any opinions on what some options would be please?
Avatar f tn will I be left with this huge scar in my lip? Can a plastic surgeon remove this scar? If so, when do you recommend that I have a consult with a plastic surgeon? I feel like my bite is off because my lips no longer close naturally due to this large bump.
Avatar m tn It is by dermal fillers or reconstructive plastic surgery. For this you need to consult a plastic surgeon. It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided. For exact diagnosis, you are requested to consult your doctor. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care and please do keep me posted on how you are doing.
Avatar f tn The only treatment for your lips would be partial excision of the excess tissue and some of the silicone. A local treating plastic surgeons should readily be able to quote you a price for the surgery and evaluate how effective that treatment might be.
Avatar n tn , because everything changed after my surgery last Nov.15, 2007. My Plastic Surgeon decided to punch a hole on my forehead and that of the skin atop my lip area, and then sutured it. He then decided to slice the dents on my nose, then sutured it too. The result was a dilemna. The sutures on my forehead didn't really close enough, leaving on area (the not so obvious indentation before) more noticeably indented. The deeper indentation stayed almost the same. Except now, both are darker.
Avatar f tn I'm lined up for plastic surgery in Costa Rica in 2.5 weeks... just looked up info online re metracril. It sounds like it will never be approved in the US, so I'm not going to give it a try. Generally our FDA is pretty good regarding their research on new products. Where did you stay in Costa Rica, and who did your surgery, if you don't mind posting here? Thanks!

Avatar f tn I see plastic surgery as no different if you are doing it for yourself..... go for it!!!! And for people that think it is vain...... that's their choice, they don't have to do it. My sister had a"turkey" neck, one of those things she got from my mom..... when she was 49 my sister had her neck done because it bothered her....lord knows we heard our mother complain about hers for a bazillion years! No one knew...
Avatar n tn Since that time I've had numbness in the right side of my nose and down through my right cheek, lip and front tooth. Do I have nerve damage and will it go away on it's own?
Avatar f tn forgive an spell checks etc. june 2005 implant surgery/immediate agony.reported said it was the ill fiting denture. I believed him. My dentist believed him. Mar 29/ 2nd implant surgery/ unbeliavable agony. Aug massive implant infection/hospital/ he had lied in the admit papers, saying I was in pain for three weeks, and having panic. I knew nothing until I pulled all of my records. I never knew but was diagnosed with osteomeylitis.
Avatar n tn I also have thought that it could possibly be Fordyce, but the small patch of bumps on my lip are sooo tiny and are the same color as my lip that it doesn't seem to match the Fordyce symptoms. Like you, my lips are dry (they normally are not) and the small patch of very tiny bumps feels scaly when i run my tongue over it. It's really not noticeable to other people (my sister couldn't even see what I was talking about), but I would like to know what it is and what is causing it.
Avatar f tn Having said that, I cannot afford plastic surgery, injections and the like. I have tried several wrinkle creams, and can't say they are all bad, if one is consistent, some do return the moisture back into a dehydrated face and do minimize wrinkles. At home I do not wear make up, When I go out I don't even wear foundation anymore, mostly lipstick, and blush and mascara.
Avatar n tn at Lipodissolve in Chesterfield Valley (MO) is the best. Sara also gets the injections - she said that she has had everyone there give her the injections - and she didn't notice any difference. I sure did. My 3rd treatment with someone different was so painful and the swelling was really bad. I also think she injected into one of the past lumps that had not dissolved totally.
Avatar f tn Once the whole right side of my face swelled up and my lip practically turned outward like someone was peeling my face back. It was horrible. It happened also in a different place nearly every time. Doctors could not figure out what the heck was wrong. I was given and epi-pen and a couple of times, I had to use it. I never knew when it was going to hit or what would trigger it. I dealt with it for about two years. I was miserable. Slowly but surely it began to get better.
Avatar f tn Don't worry! I had people I *bothered* I when I was going through it myself. When I woke up from the surgery I was almost surprised! Even though HC has a short half life - your body is, or rather a normal body, is used to and wants some down time from steroids. That is when the body repairs itself - makes bone, repairs muscle etc. That is why HC is healthier then say, pred which lasts all day and all night - and causes more side effects.
Avatar m tn As you can see by the hundreds of comments, the Flip-Turn Sinus Flush works extremely well for chronic bacterial infections of the upper sinuses, replacing antibiotics and surgery in most instances. For infections of the lower sinuses, I recommend the Neilmed Sinus Rinse--available at most pharmacies--as it requires less effort and risk.
Avatar n tn It began after an dental surgery in dec 09 and made me go insane. Itching was only the beginning of it. It ended in fhe composite-must-go-mode as I am an autist and som things cannot be in my world. And now... 6 months later... I have yet again recieved fillings and whole teeth made of composite and the new front was "cemented" with some form of acrilithic "glue" or whatever it is called. Sorry about not knowing the names...
Avatar f tn I have seen a Orthopedic Surgeon, who sent me to a Neurological surgeon, who said he could do surgery on my back as it showed osteopenia, but he wasn't sure if this would help the Neuropathy? I have gone to a Cardiologist who did a stress test, which only showed mitral valve regurgitation. I also saw a Psychiatrist, twice, who only wanted to give me drugs, my Primary Doctor and also my Hepatologist. I now have an appt. Nov.
Avatar f tn I'd like to know what side effects you're referring to. Also, regarding the cortisone injections, I wanted to mention that it's extremely important that people consult the latest research regarding Dercum's Disease before they inject cortisone or use any other steroid hormones!
Avatar n tn Hi, found this site while looking for help, I lead a pretty good life, good job, I played hard and broke many bones and surgeries, anyway I was in a pain managment and was eventualy put on 3 injections daily of morphine sometimes 4, well I am going off it, doctor was arrested it was making me sick anyway, well now I want to die, the withdrawel is bad enough I can take that but the pain in my back and legs is unbarable. any ideas?
Avatar f tn This is much more invasive than the injections but the itch is so crazy I think that all of us are willing to do anything to get rid of it. It is a horrible itch! Also, since I've been in a few car accidents, my neck is straight (I've lost the natural curvature of the neck), and my trapezius muscle is tensed up. My shoulders are like bricks. The pain management doctor is going to give me some trigger point injections to relax the muscle.
Avatar n tn I went for a couple of cortisone injections as well as used medication for it. In my second day after injection, all spots disappear, but it only last for about 3-4 weeks. I have now came accross a homoeopath and he immediately gave me 3 different preparations to use. One week later and all is blisters are gone and it is only the tiny bown spot and a little bit of skin that is cracking for which he also gave me a big pot of ointment.
