I think it's way too early to judge the results from your augmentation. We should wait at least a month before the final result will be evident. As a norm 40% of the injected goes away. Small discrepancies can be corrected with small quantities of filler.

Fat injection to the lips
Thank you for your pictures. You are early in your recovery. Swelling will greatly reduce over several weeks. Result will become more visible at that time. Please follow up with your plastic surgeon as he or she instructs.

Fat Transfer to the Lips
Being POD 4 you are very swollen and this is likely not reflective of the final outcome. You have to wait 6-12 weeks to determine the actual size. Seek the opinion of your surgeon, as some are known to inject steroids or give oral steroids and/or diuretics to bring down the swelling if it persists beyond 3-4 weeks. At this point, ice, elevation, and time are what you need. I wish you the best of luck, Dr. Emer.
Lip augmentation with fat transfer will have significant swelling. Need to wait about 6-12 weeks to see the final result. Be patient, you are only 4 days post surgery.
