I had my lips injected with Juvederm on Thursday morning, I came home and iced all day. They looked pretty that night. I woke up the next morning and they don't look the same. Something is off, and they don't look proportional. Is it possible for swelling/lumps/asymmetry to be worse the day after the procedure? I thought swelling was immediate and subsided. I have stayed away from NSAIDs, no alcohol, no working out, etc. I'm worried and wondering if I need to call my physician.
Can swelling be worse on the 2nd day after Juvederm lip injections? (photo)

Swelling after filler to lips
Swelling/bruising after filler is very common and may give you the appearance of an uneven look. However, this may take up to 10-14 days to completely subside and resolve. I usually suggest to my patients to take oral arnica after fillers to speed up the healing process. If after 14 days you feel your lips are uneven, I would suggest seeing your provider for further evaluation.
