Lip Filler May Cause Termporary Irregularity
Injectable fillers augment the lips in every dimension - thickness, width, and length. But, very little volume is usually injected, so the mild distortion comes from swelling that develops quite rapidly. Some people swell more than others, and the lips are more susceptible to swelling than other areas of the face.
The swelling that occurs with fillers make the lips stiff for a few hours to a few days. So, the lips do not flex normally and can look and feel distorted. Give the filler a few days to settle down and you will be very happy with the result.
