Upper lip is protruding after fillers
You just had the filler less than 24 hours ago. The first 48 hours will be the most swelling and swelling is always asymmetrical. I know it's hard, but wait it out. You don't want to do anything to it for at least 10-14 days after the filler was injected because you don't know what's filler and what's swelling. Also, keep your hands away from it and don't press on the area. One, you can move the filler, and two, you can make the swelling worse.

My lips were filled and my upper lip is now protruding
Swelling is very common after lip injections, I suggest you wait 2-3 weeks for the product to settle before you see your final result
Fillers in lips
Fillers in lips can cause a lot of swelling just after injection. It may take a few days for this to settle down. Best to give it some time.
Swelling from lip injections
It is perfectly normal to have swelling immediately after injections. I would wait two weeks to see the full effect and wait for the swelling to dissipate before trying to correct the injections.
Swelling after lip filler
Swelling and bruising is common after having any filler injected. If the swelling persists or you are not happy with the results after 2-3 weeks, your dermatologist or plastic surgeon can inject some hyaluronidase into the area. This will dissolve the Restylane if you're still unhappy with the results.
Best of luck!
Lip Filler May Cause Termporary Irregularity
Injectable fillers, like Restylane and Juvederm, usually cause some swelling for a few days. The swelling may not be symmetrical and may produce an unesthetic appearance, however, this typically resolves rapidly.
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.
Filler in the lips
Swelling in the lips after hyaluronic acid fillers is incredibly common, and it can make the lips look distorted for 1-2 weeks. Ice and sleeping with the head slightly elevated can help with swelling. If the results are still unpleasing after 2 weeks, a follow up visit with the injector can be helpful. Filler can be placed in the lower lip to balance out the top lip, or the filler in the top lip can be dissolved with hyaluronidase. Luckily, fillers are temporary.
