Hello All, I need help finding clinics that offers/specializes in lip augmentation/surgery. I'm looking to get my lip curtains and cupid done (as shown in the photo). So far I've only found the procedure on Deesse and know little to nothing about the clinic. Thank you and looking forward to the feedback. IMG_5346.jpg

I read online that there's surgery for the mouth corners but not the actual mid part of the lip...

I've finally decided to have surgery done at Deesse Plastic Surgery clinic. I had lips surgery (Lips reduction, cupid bow and M lips) done and currently 5 days post ops. This is not the first time I had lips surgery (Had lower lips reduction n mouth corner lift done at another clinic 1yr ago). However, it is the first time I'm able to to eat n talk without difficulty or pain and there isn't much swelling at all. Most importantly, I can see the results I want right after the surgery and really like it. I definitely did not regret choosing Deesee PS for these lips surgery. Like many others, I was unable to find much information on this clinic intially as well. They do not have delegated English speaking consultant. I actually contacted them via Chinese speaking consultant through their Wechat contact. Most of their marketing focus more towards the Chinese market. As such a lot of the reviews I read are from a Chinese PS forum. There isn't much information in English that I can search from. Based on the Chinese website review, I pretty like their lips B&A. However, again you can't really based on photos to judge a clinic as many could have been photoshoped edited. So finally I thought maybe to have face to face consultation with the clinic n doctors.

This clinic wasn't really big (occupied only 2 levels in the building), however they have lots of PS procedures and specialized in lips surgery as well. I see that they have recently set up a New English website:
http://en.deesse.co.kr/m/sub/contents01_02.php

I had went for 2 rounds of consultation with them before finally making up my mind to have the surgery done this 3rd round. I was kind of impressed by how they make an effort to keep patients consultation record even though I've not had any surgery done with them before. Everytime I went back for consultation, they are able to pull out my previous record on wat I've consulted before and price quoted. Here I am going to share my lips surgery experience with them.

Consultation:
Consulted with 2 doctors in the clinic on lips and other surgeries. I shall only focus on the lips surgery as I only had that done with them. Dr Choi who did the lips surgery speaks some English. He was very detailed n patience in explaining the procedures n techniques to achieve wat I wan when I show him the picture. Other than explaining through pictures, he used certain instruments to show me how my lips will look like after the surgery which is kind of great as I'm a visual person, when he did that I can really see the shape that I want. Dr Choi also explained to me how he will performed the lips surgery n incision point, it was somehow different from wat I've read from other sources. So the consultation went well. The consultant Dan Dan was also very knowledgable n experienced. She used to be a surgical nurse and has been in the PS industry for some time. The procedures that she recommended to me has been in line with what other clinics recommended me. She understand some English and is able to list out the pros n cons of each procedures in detailed. Both Dr Choi n Dan Dan are able to give me convincing answers on the questions that I wished to know about.

Surgery Day:
I've been to quite a few clinics for consultation and surgery previously. However, this clinic does gave me a warmth feeling. Staffs were polite and smiley when I enter the clinic. I've actually had other surgeries done few days ago at other clinics and only came to Deesse PS for lips surgery. After making the full surgical fees, I was escorted to change to the surgical grown followed by the pre ops instructions n meeting with Dr Choi for final consultation before surgery. Drawing and design of the lips was done when I was in the surgery room. Dr Choi came in right after the nurses prepared me on the surgical table. He was extremely gentle and careful when doing the drawing n designing, especially I just had eye surgery and rhinoplasty at another clinic and there was splint on my nose. He tried as much as possible not to touch the nose area. The clinic translator was along by my side throughout the whole period so there was no communication barrier at all. I was still awake while the doctor was doing the drawing, after which that was the last thing I could remember. Next moment I woke up and could feel the doctor finishing up the last part of the surgery, but there was no pain at all. The nurses help me to the recovery room after the surgery. I did not have any dizziness compared to when I had surgery in other clinics. The nurses helped me to the bed and put ice pack on my lips. I was left to rest for some time. When I awake again, first thing I request was water! The nurse gave me water and ask if I'm in any pain. She injected another pain killer into my IV when I told her just slight pain. I was left to rest in the room until I'm completely ok to go back. During the whole time the nurses are in the room with me n another patient. After confirming with me again that I'm well enough, I was then ask to change and get ready to go back. A post ops kit was given to me and I was guided with the Dos and Don'ts and lastly asked to come back for follow up the next day. Surprisingly I was feeling absolutely alright after the surgery and was able to do some shopping before heading back to my apartment.

Below is my Pre-ops and Post 5 days lips after stitch removal. Although there are still some swelling, I really like the results.

How much did it all cost in total? Also, what did they say were the cons of the surgery?

It depends on the procedures you are doing. Eg. For mouth corner lift, there could be scaring and thus instructions on extra care that needs to be taken to minimize and avoid scaring are given. Different skin type react to different degree of scarring too.
As I had lips reduction, my concern is more on whether will I be able to close my mouth completely while wanting a dramatic after the surgery. My upper teeth are quite big. So Dr Choi tried to reduce the upper lips as much in proportion to the lower lips and constructed the lips shaped that I wan from the pic I provided. The lips procedures I did will not result in any visible scaring as the incision are all inside the lips.

I shall not share how much I paid for the surgery here as it really depends on the number of procedures you opt for.
Cheers.

I'm currently 9 days post ops. Could be due to swelling, there is a small gap showing a little of my upper teeth when I relax my lips.
During follow up Dr Choi said that the lips will get more natural as it deswell. Looking forward to it. It was such an improvement for me as I really dislike my thick lips with no definition.

That's great! Do you have Kakao so I can ask you more questions? Also, are you a male or female?

Updates! I'm currently 15 days post ops and already back in my country. My lips is getting more and more natural as it deswell and I really like the result. Ppl who seen me all commented that I look better after the lips surgery. It really makes a different.

Here is an update photo. All without make up or lipstick on. I've no problem smiling and talking. Many have asked if I've difficulty eating after the lip surgery. For me, No this round. I'm eating absolutely well since Day 0 after the Ops.
