Lip still swollen - FREAKING OUT!

Hi ladies.

I just had a lip transfer along with my BA this past Thursday. My lips are still swollen and it just looks awful. I've been applying cold compressions but I don't see it going down. I don't want to look ugly! My boyfriend hasn't said anything but I know he doesn't like it.

Check out my picture and tell me what you think.

It's only been 3 days, right? You will be beautiful, it just takes time. How long did your doc tell you for lip swelling? My guess is about 6 weeks before you can really judge. They are a beautiful shape and will be great as soon as the swelling subsides. hang in there!

Not only are you still swollen, but the surgeon may have overcompensated with the fat because much of it will be absorbed. I had a fat transfer to some areas of my face, and I looked deformed until the swelling went down and some of the fat was absorbed. Hang in there. They're going to look beautiful!!

I did look. I think the shape looks right, but the size is off because of what damava said. However, if you have any photos of your face where you could crop just your lips, it would help to see a before shot. I really think it will just take a bit of time for things to settle.

I did look, and I'm certain that is not going to be your final result.

youre just very swollen ,lips swell majorly. i also had a fat transfer to my lips when i was 21 and yeh my boyfriend at the time freaked too, he couldnt look at me without shrieking "what have you done , what have they done to you aargh!!!" haha , i think it was too early in our relationship , i looked bizarr for about 2 weeks or longer i think, one reason i would never go through that again, down time was way too long , but once swelling went down they looked freakin awesome for a really long time. dont stress , just give yourself a couple weeks till it all settles, theyve gone through a lot of trauma. they will look awesome, the shape is beautiful. looking forward to seeing your progression pics!!
send me a FR if you like , i have a "lips "album with a pic of my lips after fat transfer and recently with juvederm..
