After the Procedure
What to Expect
Numbness will wear off within 2- 3 hours after the procedure. Do not be alarmed if latching is difficult at first; you may have to help flange the upper lip especially while the lip is numb. Tylenol may be given, but please consult your doctor for specific dosage. The wound areas may appear white or yellowish. This is normal and is not an indication of infection. Full healing usually takes between 2-3 weeks.
