Dr.Lam, I had an unknown substance (I was told it was Hyaluronic acid based, and would dissolve as quick as restylane that I had previously, but she was pushing for me to get one that lasts 6 years, so I believe she just lied and used whatever substance she had because it is still here 4 years later). My lips have gone down some in the past 4 years, but they are uneven, with some bumps. This is particularly devastating for me as an actress I believe that casting can't use me at times do to the fake appearance of my lips. May I send you photos to see if you believe I am a good candidate? I would love to keep them rather full just more even and natural. I would be coming in from NY and would wonder if I could have a price estimate to see if the trip would be possible for me? Would be top and bottom lip, you will see that they both need it. Thankyou!
first, i would try a dissolve with hyaluronidase just in case it is in fact restylane. it sounds unlikely but i have actually dissolved restylane years out in lips. if that fails, then you are a candidate to have this done by me. you can send photos to me via firstname.lastname@example.org and i can give you a basic price quote. best, sml
