Severe pain/bruising after recent lip augmentation?

My experience with Restylane has always been good.  Same applies to the surgeon I see.  The last time I decided to have lips enhanced, I mentioned my concern about an overlap or droopy appearance in central part of upper lip.  Very visible in profile view of face.  He suggested a slightly different approach, filling the central upper lip as well as lower lip.  It gave desired look....but at what a painful cost!  My lips were super painful, bruised, a has two small bumps under lip. When I saw him, he felt it was an allergic reaction, and taking ibuprofen and Benadryl before procedure would help.  Anyone else had this experience?  Wondered if age is a factor: I'm 76 now.  Was in early 70s when I first had lips plumped.
