The success of a lip augmentation procedure does not only depend on the surgeon performing it, but also on the individual herself. As with any other cosmetic procedure, lip augmentation requires the patient’s full cooperation, especially when preparing for the procedure.

Before undergoing lip augmentation, it is important to make your home as recovery-friendly as possible by preparing the following:

  • Ice or cold compresses

  • Comfortable pillows

  • Cream and ointments prescribed by your doctor

  • Soft foods such as pudding, jello, yogurt, or anything that does not require a lot of chewing

  • Telephone that is easily within reach

Pre-Operative Preparations

Before your lip augmentation, it is best to assign someone to drive you home right after the operation. It is also important to note that if you are a smoker, you will more likely be advised to quit or stop the habit for a few weeks before your treatment.

On the day of your appointment, it is best to wear loose and comfortable clothing. If possible, choose one that has buttons or something that will not require you to have it pulled over your face.
