As long as I can recall, I hated my small lips. They were almost not visible and I frequently got mocked for “hiding them” from people. It had always been a thorn in my side. It wasn’t until I was older I decided to search for a aesthetic clinic in Singapore that I really started to think seriously about it.
After my first search, I found a few clinics that were given rave reviews and even had before and after photos of some of the procedures that they had done. To me, the difference was night and day with the clients. It wasn’t until my second search that I got up the nerve to finally call. I thought to myself “I am doing this for me!” I found the aesthetic clinic that gave me the feeling that they were a perfect match and through studders and nervousness, I called and made an appointment for the next day. Needless to say, I didn’t sleep at all that night. The next morning came and I was ready to go to the clinic. I didn’t know what to expect but was a combination of nervous and excited.
When I got to the clinic, I was greeted warmly by the clinic staff and was taken to a room. It wasn’t long after that a doctor came in and we talked about my lips. He asked me a lot of questions about my history with my self esteem. He told me that a lot of people he sees just want work done to keep up with celeb looks and he won’t treat them since he doesn’t want to aid in their obsessions. I was comforted that he wasn’t going to be a “Let’s get the lips done, but how about your nose too? Breasts? Let’s just fix everything!” I told him I was only unhappy with my lips and went into the detail of trauma I have due to them. He said that it was an easy fix and I could get injects right now if I wanted to do it.
Well, I felt comfortable and trusted him so I went ahead and got some small filler in my lips. They were swollen for a couple of days, but when they settled, they were perfect! I even called him to thank him for the look! It wasn’t noticeable, but yet it was. It was the perfect subtle look I wanted, nothing over done. I’ve been going to him every 6 months for a small refill and he has never pressured me to go bigger, we stay in the range that I am comfortable in.
