Question : How long after a lip augmentation procedure can I get back to my normal activities?
Answer : After lip augmentation, there may be some minimal bruising and some swelling. Patients can resume normal activities quite soon after the procedure. I know many patients who go back to work right after the procedure. However, there is some swelling which lasts for a few days and patients may like to avoid too much activity during this time. Swelling usually resolves quite quickly and they’re able to resume their normal routine after this. For patients in acting or public life, I tell them to relax in private for a few days until the swelling is all resolved.
