I am giddily typing this blog post as today for the first time ever I got lip fillers! I’ve been wanting these since I was about 17 and I’m 23 now so it’s been a long time coming. This post will cover if it hurts, prices and any questions that people have been asking me about the procedure. Soooooo keep reading if you want to learn about my experience and see some before and after pics.
Soon as I arrived I had numbing cream put on. This was left for around 20-30 minutes and at first, this just felt like plumping lip gloss. The longer it was left on. my lips went completely numb which was a really weird feeling. I went downstairs and met Aimey who was so lovely and put me at ease as I was a bit nervous. She was so reassuring and said to me that we could stop at any point if I felt uncomfortable. So at this point, I was really relaxed and was ready. Hand on my heart I honestly could hardly feel it happening. All I can compare it too is if someone is pinching you who has sharp nails. Completely bearable and only took 5 minutes if that to do. It was over before you even have time to think about the pain.
Today I went for 1ml lips. Originally I was going to go for half a ml but then everyone I spoke too had said that I would love half a ml when they were swollen but when they go to the correct size I would wish I had more. So I went for 1ml and I am so pleased. These pictures are taken today so I am aware that my lips now are a little swollen and will more than likely change shape slightly.
