In brief: Lip aug & herpes

It should be fine to have lip augmentation if you have a history of herpes breakouts in your lip area.
Premedication with an antiviral like Valtrex (valacyclovir) or Acyclovir should prevent or limit the occurrence of lesions in the period surrounding your lip treatment.
