With my foray into botox still fresh in my mind I started thinking about all the interventions available to make you feel and look younger. What is the thing that makes a particular face look younger?
Obviously, with my collagen banks becoming ever increasingly deficient I went to work in accessing all of the procedures that can make a face look more youthful. Okay, I hear you!! Why can’t she accept the aging process as it as and just grow old gracefully? Just accept who you are and move on…What on earth does all this have to do with the weight loss journey? Yes, I have heard them all. But, I do have an answer to this, which may or may not satisfy the curiosity of those who do not understand why the aesthetics side of my journey is so important to me.
I have been fat my whole life, I spent all of the years that any normal young person would have been out having fun inside feeling sorry for myself, feeling sorry for the life I was somehow not entitled to lead because I was so big. So, having finally reclaimed the body I always wanted is it not ok to long for the youth I was denied by trapping myself under the ultimate fat suit?
So, no I will not be growing old gracefully. If there are interventions whether nutritional, pharmaceutical, injectable or surgical I will try them. I will of course share the results with everyone here. Because, I have a huge amount of time to make up for!
Now that my relationship with Botox had turned into a full-fledged love affair it was only natural that I was thinking about experimenting with other injectables. Dr Joney De Souza being the amazing practitioner that he is had done the most spectacular job with my face. Although the botox was in three areas, his approach ensured that my face was youthful, but also very natural. This is what you want to achieve, a face that still has some movement. Something you can only get from someone that is a genuine expert in the field.
When I saw him again I expressed that I felt my lips had lost some of their youthful volume in recent years and I would like to have a sexier pout in general. He explained that by using a filler to enhance them I could achieve not just a more youthful look, but it would also give me that full symmetrical set of lips that would enhance my profile as well.
So, once again I would be on the receiving side of Dr De Souza’s expert needle. Like all of us I have seen the aftermath of those who have sadly ended up with the dreaded “trout pout”. Anytime you discuss having a lip enhancement inevitably you get the usual comments about looking like Pete Burns. But, this is where finding a good injector is vital. You need to trust the person implicitly with your face. Unfortunately, if it is done poorly and without care you will have to live with the consequences.
A good injector is not going unload massive amounts of filler into your lips. They should inject your lips with a conservative amount of filler in the initial appointment as you will have swelling right after so will not be able to get an accurate view of the enhancement for a couple of days. In the following weeks they should have you return for any tweaks you may want. After my first appointment I was floored by the results. It was subtle yet dramatic at the same time. Truly finished off the amazing work he had already done using botox. I am incredibly pleased with the results and would definitely consider myself a convert to injectable aesthetic procedures. The results that can be achieved are amazing and if you are looking for a procedure that will give you a great result that have lower financial and physical investment injectable treatments are absolutely the way forward. I could not be more pleased with Dr De Souza’s amazing work.
