Two weeks ago, I decided to finally go ahead and get lip fillers. I know before the procedures I found it really useful to read other people’s experiences and especially to see their before and after photos (Amy from Salt and Chic has a post here), so I thought it might be useful for any of you who are considering lip fillers to read through mine. To make the post easy to navigate and simple to read, I’ve headed the different sections with what were my primary concerns and what I’ve been asked the most. If you have any more questions, go ahead and pop them in the comments below or send me a message over on Twitter and/or Instagram – @chloeplumstead.
Where did you get them done?
What did you get done and how long does it last?
Did it hurt?
Was it expensive and is it worth it?
Do they swell and/or bruise afterwards?
It depends, but most likely. I did bleed a little during both appointments, but this is quickly wiped away and I barely noticed at all. As you can see in the before and after photos, I had minimal swelling and pretty much zero bruising after my first appointment. Second time around was a different story, and I look like I’ve been squarely punched in the mouth. Of course, the swelling and the bruising go down after a few days and then you’re left with lovely plump lips, and the bruising isn’t particularly painful so it’s not a huge bother.
