The process

Dr Sarah really listened to what I wanted, and what I didn’t. I’d previously had fillers on top of my cheekbones, higher than I’d liked, and I now wanted filler to even it out, lower than most people would go for. Starting conservatively, she put a small amount of filler exactly where we’d discussed in the apples of my cheeks, showed me. I was delighted, and with that we decided to add some more in the same spot. After a 20 minute discussion and photographs, the actual process only took about 10 minutes, and was much less squeamish/unpleasant than with previous practitioners.

I covered my eyes and Dr Sarah gave me a heads up before the ‘sharp scratch’ and sensations of pressure as the filler leaves the cannula at different points. The whole thing was really very tolerable, even with my needle phobia and general squeamishness. I also noticed considerably less bruising than other times I’d had filler – although I did bother to moderate my alcohol intake and use an ice pack – advice I’d previously dismissed.

The results

Life-changing! I look in the mirror and love what I see. A small tweak, brilliantly executed has totally changed how I feel about my face.
