A friend wanted to get her lips injected with Juvederm and sort of talked me into it I've always wondered about fillers and have wanted it in the past so I decided why not. The bigger the better right! So we went in together and split a double syringe yesterday which ended up saving us some money. We both got 1 cc injected in the lining of our lips and in the middles to create the "pout" day one we were both very tender and swollen on and around our lips. And we were both uneven on our upper lip! We figured this could be the technique Dr. Fryer used and hoped we would even out.
Day 2 I woke up and our upper lips have evened out almost completely but i am very very swollen (only on my lips swelling around my mouth has gone down) and they look too big for my face. (i started out with pretty full lips) I'm hoping the swelling will reduce a lot. I didn't tell my boyfriend! My friend woke up with bruising and i am lucky tohave no bruising so far, maybe because she bled more or maybe because she massaged them a lot and i didn't.. I found it hard to find anything that showed before and after photos so I'll try and post along my way.. I hope the swelling resides! Anyone experience major swelling? If so how much of it went down and how long did it take?
