Swelling after Filler Injections

+2

Swelling after filler injections is very common and can be asymmetric in the first 2 weeks after an injection.  I would continue to follow your injectors post-injection regimen, which likely involves cool compresses / icing.  I usually ask my patients to come back 2 weeks after injections to assess the results and decide if any enhancements need to be made.

Swelling after filler

+1

Asymetrical swelling after filler is very common and can take up to 2 weeks to completely resolve. I would suggest waiting at least 2 weeks and then see your provider for further evaluation if necessary.
