Real Stories, Real Results: Giving Judi her confidence back after a fall
In February 2020, 71-year-old local resident Judi, tripped on a rug whilst letting her dog out into the garden. As she fell, she was unable to put her hand out to cushion her fall, and her head hit the coffee table as she went down.
The impact of the fall was catastrophic, and following many hospital visits, Judi was left with a haematoma larger than a golf ball and, what the doctor described as a ‘tattoo bruise’ that would never go.

As the swelling subsided, Judi was also left with a huge dent in her cheekbone, which had literally ‘caved in’ on impact.
Over the following months Judi became hugely conscious of how her face looked with ‘a large hole in it’, and her confidence was severely rocked to the point she didn’t want to go out:
“I think I was one of the few people who didn’t mind wearing a facemask during lockdown, as it meant I could hide my injury.”
Knowing how upset Judi was by the results of her injury, a friend introduced her to Jenny O’Neill, Aspire’s Director.
Jenny listened to Judi’s story, and following examination, she felt confident she could help Judi by restoring the contour of her cheek using dermal fillers.
“People often think dermal fillers are just for those wanting larger lips or sharper cheek bones, but fillers are actually a fantastic solution to positive ageing, replacing volume and defining the facial structure when cheeks and jowls start to sag. And as in Judi’s case, they are also the perfect non-surgical solution to address significant dents in the face caused by injury or scarring. Judi is a beautiful woman, and I knew by repairing her injury, I could give her back her confidence.”
Having never had any sort of facial treatment, Judi was extremely nervous. However, she was surprised how comfortable the procedure was and she was amazed and delighted with the outcome of her treatment:
“Jenny was amazing and did such a fantastic job! The results gave me back my confidence so that I barely think about the injury these days. I feel having this done has enabled me to return to being my normal, busy, bubbly self. I can’t thank her enough!”
