Question: After lip injection, are there any restrictions on what you can and cannot be eat in the days afterward?
Answer: After a lip injection, the lips have some minimal swelling and may have some slight bruising. For a few days after the procedure, I ask my patients to be very careful with their lips to make sure there’s no trauma to the lips. In general, as long as the foods are comfortable to eat, I do not restrict food intake. I make sure that the patients keep their lips very clean so after they eat I have them make sure they rinse them clean and keep their teeth brushed on a very regular basis.
