Who is a good lip augmentation candidate?
MTF patients who are unhappy with their shape or size of their lips may choose to undergo lip augmentation, provided they are in good mental and physical health, do not smoke, and have reasonable expectations for their results.
What can I anticipate in terms of my recovery?
There are several techniques used for lip augmentation, so recovery times will vary. If dermal fillers are used, there is virtually no downtime. With fat transfer and lip implants, it will take longer to heal from the swelling, typically up to 4-6 weeks.
