I did have an infection with my first set but it was because I had to have emergency dental a few weeks post-op and he was VERY rough with my poor healing lips. I told him to be careful but he just gave me a shot and I couldn't tell he was huting them anymore. My second (smaller set) has lasted me almost a year and a half and counting. The initial healing period is the most risky because of your mouth being pretty germ-filled. This goes with any synthetic implant that requires incisions. PLUS! The doctor needs to ascertain that the ends of the implant are rounded and not sharp AT ALL! I have information on any other possible implant/injection/injectable implant available on that Lip Aug. page. BTW Cymetra is temporary - and expensive. You could go with the actually allograft and get a better result. Although, I think Cymetra is great in the dermis. OH! BTW I know a gal with AlloDerm overlay OVER her Gore-Tex. It looks great I haven't decided if I am getting the overlay or possibly just the AlloDerm next year. I just want them even more poofier.
If you want to see my pics and stuff (before and afters) and read my story its at http://www.yestheyrefake.net/Lipaug.html
I hope this helps!!
