Here’s The Before-And-After From When We Got Lip Injections For The First Time

Our opinions on lip injections have ~definitely~ changed.

Posted on

Motivated by Kylie Jenner, my co-worker Ella and I decided to try getting lip injections for the first time. Warning: If you're squeamish around needles, you might not love this.

Neither of us had ever had any kind of plastic surgery before, but we both felt like if we were ever going to change anything about our appearance, we would change our lips.


During the consultation, they took "before" photos of our lips, and when I found out that there would be a side-angle difference after the injections, I was pretty shocked!


Then he gave us a mirror and showed us our new lips, which were INSANELY swollen. If you can't tell by my face, I was pretty freaked out by my new look, and didn't know if the crazy swelling was permanent or temporary.

That night, about five hours after getting the injections done, my lips hurt a lot more than I anticipated they would, and I began to feel some regret about getting the procedure done.


Before getting the injections, Ella and I both thought it would be a simple, really non-invasive experience — it had even been kind of a joke to us. A week later, Ella felt like if she could do it all over again, she probably wouldn't.

I was a little more on the fence about it. After a week, once the swelling had gone down, I liked my new lips, but was still shocked by how scary, painful, and drawn out the whole ordeal was.

Ultimately, we realized that our original lips weren't so bad, and we gained a new appreciation for people under pressure to look their best all the time. Unfortunately, it took plastic surgery to get there.
