I would like lip augmentation with an implant. I would expect that my lips would be somewhat swollen after the procedure but are they so swollen that I would not be able to go to work the next day? Is there any chance that the swelling will persist longer than expected?
I prefer hyaluronic acid (Perlane, Juvederm, Restylane) to permanent implants. I have done many permanent implants over the years and find the fillers to be more customizable and forgiving. That said, you lips will probably be larger than you want for about a week, but often nobody notices.
