Feeling and Looking Younger

After I finished having my kids, I knew that I wanted a mommy makeover. My stomach was in terrible shape, my arms looked completely destroyed, and my legs had been carrying weight for years. I wanted a full body overhaul, so I started by doing what I could to look and feel younger. I started exercising each and every day, and then I worked hard on doing my hair and makeup better. It was amazing to see the difference it made, but I wanted something more. I consulted with a cosmetic surgeon, and I scheduled the surgery that changed my life for the better.

3 Things You Can Do To Help With Your Lip Injection Recovery

Getting lip injections can be a great thing, especially if you are someone who has small lips and/or if you lips have become wrinkled with age. The lip injections can allow you to have the size of lips that you would like and will make them look very smooth and symmetrical. While the procedure is generally fairly quick and basic, there is still going to be a recovery period that you will need to undergo. Thankfully, there are some things that you can do to help the recovery process go smoothly and reduce the amount of pain and discomfort that you may experience. This article will discuss 3 things that you can do to help. 

Use Ice Packs

Because the injections are initially going to draw out extra fluid into your lips, they are going to look more swollen than normal. While this is something that is common, it can be uncomfortable. A great way to combat the swelling and reduce the unsightly look of it, as well as the pressure, is to use an ice pack on your lips. You will likely be given an ice pack by your doctor right after the procedure, and then you can continue to use it after you go home as well. These ice packs are going to be fine for you to use until your swelling has gone down completely and you no longer experience discomfort from it. 

Use Lipgloss Or Lipstick For Bruising

A side effect that sometimes occurs after getting lip injections is bruising. This occurs due to the needle being poked into your lip at different locations. Not all people are going to bruise, but if you are experiencing bruising of any kind, then you can apply some lipgloss or lipstick to your lip before you go out in public. Either of these are going to cover, or at least fade, the bruises and will help you to feel much more confident going out in public.

Sleep With Your Head Elevated

Swelling is often times due to increased blood flow in your lips after the procedure, so another way to help reduce this swelling is going to be to sleep with your head elevated. This removes some of the blood flow from your face, which in turn helps your lips to look and feel less swollen. Since you can't really have ice on your lips when you are sleeping, this is a great alternative for combating the swelling at this time.
