Lip Augmentation Recovery

Update 16/09/2018

 

Lip augmentation surgery is one of the procedures you may have performed at Naravee Aesthetic Clinic. Because the lips can be a sensitive area of the body, there are a few things you will want to make sure you do when recovering from lip augmentation to help ensure that they heal properly.

Swelling will likely be an issue, especially during the first 24 to 48 hours after the surgery. However, there are steps you can take to try and reduce it. For example, you can apply an ice pack (wrapped in cloth) to your lips for about 10 minutes, then take a break for about 20 minutes, then apply it for another 10 minutes, and so on. You can generally start doing this around three-to-four hours after the surgery. Keeping your head elevated as much as possible during the first couple of days after the surgery can also help. Things like sitting up instead of laying down and using more pillows when you sleep at night can help keep your head elevated. Taking anti-inflammatory pain medications that the surgeon prescribes for you can also help keep the swelling down. In addition, these can have the added benefit of reducing the amount of pain you experience.

Eating soft foods for the first few days after the surgery is also a good idea. Breads, liquids, pudding, soft fruits, and other types of soft fruits that require little chewing are all good bets. Harder foods tend to require more chewing, and chewing too much during the first few days after the surgery can cause pain and swelling. However, while liquids may be a good choice, alcohol is not. Alcohol can thin your blood, which may have a negative impact on your recovery.

You may be prescribed an antibiotic designed to be pressed against your lips to prevent them from drying and/or cracking. If not, you may want to purchase lip moisturizer to help prevent dryness and cracking. When using it, however, it is important to apply it gently, and not to rub it in. Rubbing could cause you intense pain, and may damage your lips during the healing process.
