I Got Lip Fillers For the First Time and My Life Will Never Be the Same
A week later, I booked my appointment with Melissa Doft, M.D., a plastic surgeon in New York City. Although I, and Dr. Doft, suggest doing research before choosing the physician for your injectables, mine was a unique case. Dr. Doft is the woman responsible for my breast reduction surgery in 2018. As far as bedside manner goes, Dr. Doft has the best, so trusting her with my lips was a no-brainer. Now, it’s officially been a month since first getting my lip filler and, well, I’m definitely on the bandwagon.
I’m not recommending anyone get the cosmetic treatment because, frankly, you don’t need them, but boy did I want them — and it was totally worth it. Just in case you are curious, Dr. Doft answered every question you need to know before getting lip injections, ahead. Then keep clicking for my personal take on the process (spoiler: I have a hot tip to reduce bruising).
