2 similar questions really:

Can you use "normal" plugs in a stretched lip piercing? Are plugs designed for ears ok to put in there or will they be too big/small to fit the thickness of your lip properly?

Is wooden jewellery OK for lip piercings or does the moisture of your mouth screw them up? I mean, I'm not permanently dribbling or anything, but I know generally wood and moisture are not best friends.

If looks could kill, I'd watch you die.

I don't see why you couldn't use single flare styles as long as they fit right!

At smaller sizes you can easily get away with single flare plugs, as long as they have a long enough wearable.

around 2g and up, you'll probably want to switch to a tback, which will be much more comfortable.

As far as wood, the short answer is it depends.. Some people like it, some don't. For stretching, of course it's a big fat no!

my experience with wood labrets in healed lips is that they tend to dry out quite a bit, very quickly. My only positive experience has been when I was removing the piece every 2-3 hours to add more oil.

Denser woods certainly work better, but you will still have slight drying.

Now, this is just my personal experience. I know people who wear wood in large labrets, but for me personally my first choice is always stone.

Wood wouldn't be practical until at least 4g-2g ish, so I would say when you get around there, give it a try with an open mind... but make sure to keep it oiled!

Stretching wise, polymer/delrin/teflon is your best bet for decently priced/good stretching materials. You can get labrets made from that from Aestheticsbodymod.com, and they're quite good with making deals for stretching sets.
