Important things before and during Lip enhancement procedureLast Updated: October 20, 2019
First of all, avoid all platelet inhibitors such as aspirin, alcohol and NSAID's (and anything that contains those ingredients) for 7-10 days before your procedure. Also eat pineapple during this time period. Make sure that your injector is very experienced in lip augmentation, and ask them to inject very slowly since the faster the injection, the more it hurts and the more chance of bruising. After the injections, do not "use" your lips for anything except eating.....and use ice packs at least 20 minutes per hour until the sweling goes down. Remember to sleep with your head elevated so that there is less chance of swelling in your lips overnight.
