Tear trough: things to be aware of.

Treating tear trough for sunken or baggy eyes is a sensitive procedure as the skin is very thin under the eyes. Therefore this area can easily bruise and become puffy lasting up to two weeks. Although most of the patients leave without any visible marks, we would advise avoiding this procedure if you have an important event to attend within a month. Nevertheless, the outcome of this procedure is outstanding as it gets rid of the tired-looking face. The procedure should be only done by an experienced practitioner who has done this multiple time as this area is very delicate.

Lip augmentation: things to be aware of

Lips are full of blood vessels therefore mild swelling is expected for 2-3 days. You might feel that your lips are tense when the numbing agent starts wearing off. There is no need to panic, as the swelling will progressively go down. Lips can look slightly asymmetrical when swollen but this should improve when the swelling resolve. So it can take a few days for the lips to take their final shape. If you’re not fully satisfied with the final shape of your lips, you can email us to book you in for a free consultation.
