Welcome to the day and age where Anti-wrinkle injections, fillers & cosmetic surgery isn’t just for the insanely wealthy and the movie stars.

For a mum of three, clearly fillers are for special occasions and treats. But I personally don’t do flowers, they cost too much to just die. I’d rather an awesome kissy pout (my husband agrees too!)

I first experimented with fillers on my “50kg loss celebration” I went for 1ml of Juvéderm. I was nervous it was going to hurt – lots of little needle pricks into my lips. It actually didn’t hurt much at all and was over within five minutes. I loved the results. They lasted for five months +

At 5 months I was coming up to a special occasion (my one year gastric sleeve anniversary). So while my results hadn’t fully worn off, I just wanted a little “top up”.

This time I decided to try 1ml of Restylane. I had this done by a male GP this time not a female RN, I don’t know if this is why there is a difference in pain, but yes, this time it did hurt. He wasn’t as gentle as the RN that’s for sure. But once again, all over red rover in less than 5 minutes & nothing I couldn’t handle. I love the Restylane too, the differences I notice between the two is the Restylane is more “lumpy”, very common for fillers, and “thicker” – it definitely took more lip massages while settling.


I think it comes down to personal preference. For me they both seemed to do the same thing. I enjoy the results of both.

PAIN – Minimal
COST – from $389
RESULTS LAST – 6-12 months

Hi, I'm Sammy, mother of 3, student of nutritional medicine, mistress to my husband while the Navy is his wife, I'm sick of that bitch getting all the attention! I am wonder woman. I change my hair colour more times in a year than my bed linen. After my whole life yo-yo dieting I bit the bullet and had weightloss surgery. I lost 70kg and started my plastic post weightloss surgery with a Tummy Tuck. My story is still being written. Keep your food clean, your life active, and your heels high!
