I recently went to the GHC clinic, in Prague to get permalip implants, as the cost is so much less than here in the UK. I had been considering getting permalip implants for a long time after getting many expensive lip fillers over the years that only ever lasted a couple of months max!
It was through reading this forum that I decided to go ahead with surgery; so I thought I would try and share my experience and recovery to help other people in the way I was helped.
I found the surgery itself pretty painless; apart from the tugging, but I can not lie; the series of needles in my lips for the pre numbing was incredibly painful!! I was gripping the sides of the bed and tears were rolling down my face; I really was not prepared for THAT amount of pain.
I was recommended to have 4mm implant in my upper lip, and 5mm in my lower.
The surgery was carried out on Thursday afternoon, and I am still very swollen (or I HOPE I am!!) I'm really hoping it will go down a lot! I'm back at university tomorrow so I'm definitely going to have to answer a LOT of questions! :S
It's a shame you can wear a hat to cover your hair and shades to cover your eyes but there's nothing for your lips! lol
Here's a link to a picture I took about 5hours post op. Since then, I have swollen more if anything!http://i1204.photobucket.com/albums/bb406/AmyMiAow/IMAG0483.jpg?t=1347785821
I don't seem to have any of the white dots that are mentioned; when do these usually develop?
