Swelling after lip augmentation
Thank you for your question.
Swelling after lip augmentation injections are common, as Hyaluronic acid used for the purpose can cause swelling itself in tissues. Normally this type of swelling builds up after few hours after injection and settles after 24-72hrs. When anesthesia is worn out pain also can kick in.
Bruising and infection are another reasons for pain and swelling. Your doctor should be able to check you for that. Arnika, Vit K or Heparin cream can help for the former and antibiotics or antivirals (depending on reason for the infection) -for the latter.
The swelling and pain could be swelling, it could be infection. See your plastic surgeon ASAP
