Help... Lip Too Big After Juvederm

I always wanted to try to "plump" up my...

I always wanted to try to "plump" up my upper lip. My bottom lip has always been "full", but my upper lip was much thinner. I never tried a lip filler, so decided to try it.

 I just had my first ever Juvederm injection yesterday in my upper lip. The nurse injected 1 full cc into the upper lip. Is this the recommended amount? I ask because my upper lip is very swollen, too big, and looks abnormal. I am hoping some of this is swelling, and I am trying to be patient. Please tell me what the normal cc amount is for the upper lip, and how much of this is actually swelling. When can I expect the "true" results to show? At this point, I wish I had never done this. I feel I look abnormal.

I had my first ever Juvederm injection yesterday as well with the exact same results.The doctor used 1 cc of Juvederm in only my top lip, and today I look deformed! I also wish I hadn't done this because I look horrible! I'm hoping it is just swelling and it will go away soon because I can't even go out in public right now.

So sorry to hear jjessica88 - I hope the swelling goes down & you feel better soon!

I'm curious to know how this turned out for you, now that you are over a month into it. I'm in the same situation, except I just had this done two days ago. My wrinkles are gone, but I look weird, which defeats the whole purpose.

I am having the same problem with an abnormal looking upper lip due to juvederm injections. I am 45 and in the past 2 years I suddenly developed wrinkles above my upper lip. I told my doctor that I wanted to minimize these wrinkles. She recommended juverderm plus and proceeded to inject an entire syringe slightly above my lip and into my upper lip. My lip area has a deep purple bruise and looks abnormal. I pray that this is indeed due to swelling.

Thanks for the encouragement. You are so right... it IS more swollen in the morning. It is day four now, and the swelling is slowly getting better. If the swelling goes down just a little bit more... I would be very happy. If I do this again, I think I might ask for 1/2 cc at a time. Thanks for the encouragement.

Trust me.....there is at least 50% swelling in your lip right now. Mine took around 1 week for all the swelling to go away...keep putting ice on it right now for next couple of days. Your lip will always appear larger in the morning. I had mine done now 2 months ago and unfortunately it is just about back to what it looked like before I had it done.
