My new look
I’m not excited about the actual procedure because I do not have a good history with needles but I am very excited about the result. My friend Marcia who had her lip fillers in Melbourne a few weeks ago told me that it really doesn’t hurt and the needle is so fine that you can barely feel it. There are very few things for which I would put myself through the stress of a needle, I have avoided flu jabs for years, but for full plump lips that look younger than my years may truly be, I will do it. It will only be a subtle change, a slightly more buxom set of lips will befall my face but I believe the biggest change will be on the inside. The confidence this will grant me I believe will be through the roof. At the moment I am constantly thinking about why everyone is looking at my thin loose lips. I am very self conscious about them and more than anything just want to go through a day without thinking about how awful my lips look. I still have a couple of days until my appointment, my daughter is going to take me and I have a feeling after she sees the miraculous results she will be signing up for cheek fillers in Melbourne too! Not that she needs them of course but two babies does take its toll on one’s youthful looks. For one week before the procedure I have been told to avoid anything that may thin the blood, so my daily aspirin and fish oil cocktail is off the menu this week. Apparently after the procedure I’ll just need to lightly ice it to avoid bruising but within a couple of days it should all be back to normal, except the new plumper, younger and less anxiety inducing version!
