What To Expect After
Fat transfers are slightly more involved and do require some recovery. This pertains more to recovering from the liposuction for the fat transfer. There is often a little redness and swelling after the treatments that diminishes within a few days. With this method, the results last for up to three years.
With lip implants, there is more downtime since the procedure is more invasive and requires stitches. The recovery may take up to two weeks. After a week to 10 days, the external stitches are removed while the stitches inside the mouth dissolve. Lips may feel numb during the healing process and a little stiff for a few months. Lip implants are a permanent solution to maintaining fuller lips.
