I am a private saxophone teacher.

I have an adult student who has been with me almost two years now. She is both attractive and wealthy. So she comes into her lesson today with lip injections. As you can imagine, they bruised and hurt when she played.

Has anyone dealt with this before, should I be concerned? Or is it just going to hurt the first week? I both don’t want her to hurt herself playing or to ruin the goal of the injection by it getting bruised.

This is very new territory for me. Thanks for any info!

Hmm, I wonder if one could get custom injections to help with the embouchure? Might be a new teaching tool.

I am not a doctor. But my understanding about these types of procedures is that any discomfort is transient in nature. This is for so-called activities of daily living, but the same principles should carry over to playing the saxophone. I would assume that the pain and bruising will go away once the skin adjusts to the larger volume, and the local irritation from the injections subsides.

Tell her to take a week or two off from playing. You don't want to be responsible for her filler shifting.

And as a lifelong allergy sufferer, the idea of rings and studs in the nose really boggles the mind. How does that work when you blow your nose fifty or a hundred times a day?
