Hello, 20 years ago I had silicon gel injected into my lips and finally plucked up the courage to do something about it as they were way to big, I had lip reduction surgery 9 months ago on upper and lower lip, and I have had constant tingling and slight numbness ever since. I was told that the tingling was normal as this was due to the nerves growing back but was told that it should go after 3 months, its now been 9 months and things haven't got any better and was wandering if you could tell me if this is going to be permanent or if it will go?
nerves can take over a year to get back so it is not necessarily permanent. s.
