Removal of lip filler

The lips are known to swell very easily after filler injection. This can be quite disconcerting if it was your first time with lip injections.  It is common for the lips to also swell asymmetrically after an injection or any manipulation especially if there is any bruising.  Swelling typically will get worse before it gets better, so it is common for the lips to look even bigger the day after the injections than what they looked like when you were in the office.  Give  your lips a week to settle down before making any decisions.  Most likely, your result will improve as the lips become less swollen and tender.  If after a week or two  you still don't like your lip filler, it can be easily dissolved with hyaluronidase, which is an enzyme that breaks down hyaluronic acid based fillers such as Restylane, Perlane and Juvederm.

Wants lip filler out

It would be helpful to know which filler was placed into your lips.  However, no matter which filler was used, there normally would be some swelling present for a few days just from the technique of the injections itself.  The lips will normally come down after a few days, so you most likely just need to wait a bit longer.  If you had a hyaluronic acid filler placed, like Restylane or Juvederm, this could be dissolved with a hyaluronidase injection.  I would definitely recommend waiting at least a week after your injection before attempting anything to alter your lips.  It's likely your problem will improve within a few more days and you may not need anything done.
