Hard to say if the swelling is from the injection and or the head butt. Some swelling is expected with lip injections. The swelling will eventually subside, I would continue to ice and keep head elevated. If you have further complications a visit to your physician might be best.
Restylane Silk/ Hyaluronic acids/ Facial Rejuvenation/Liquid Face Lift
I appreciate your question.
Not possible to say if you are swollen from the Restylane Silk injections or from the trauma. If the swelling continues after a few more days, I would recommend that you follow up with your Injecting MD. In the meantime, continue to ice and sleep with your head elevated.
The best way to assess and give true
advice would be an in-person exam.
Please see a board-certified plastic
surgeon that specializes in aesthetic and restorative plastic surgery.
Best of luck!

Swelling caused by Restylane Silk or Trauma???
It would be difficult to say at this point, because both of these scenarios cause swelling. If the swelling continues for a few more days, see your Doctor. At that point it probably will not be the Restylane Silk. I wish you the best.
Lip swelling after Restylane Silk
Lip swelling after Silk is injected into the lips is common. Lips also swell after trauma. I would this a few more days and then visit with your physician if you are concerned with the results.
Swelling from Injections in lips
It is impossible to say if you are swollen from the injections or from the trauma. At this point continue to ice and sleep with your head elevated and the swelling will resolve. Best, Dr. Green
Hello, and thanks for your question. Filler-related swelling can last for up to 2 weeks, so it's hard to say, but both may be contributing to what you see now. Ice and head elevation while sleeping can be helpful.
Best of luck, Dr. Frucht.
Lip Swelling After Fillers Such as Juvederm or Restylane -- Reverse With Hyaluronidase
Silk causes swelling that can last up to 2 weeks. I suggest you see an expert if you are concerned. Best, Dr. Emer.
Swelling of lips after injection and trauma
Hard to say what the swelling is from. Silk can have swelling which lasts for 2-3 days. Treat with ice for the trauma and sleep on 3 pillows to help with the swelling. Some, rarely, I give steroids for the swelling.
Lip fillers tend to cause a lot of swelling. Best to give it a week or so to settle down. Best of luck.
Swelling post Restylane SILK.
I would say your swelling is caused by both the injections of SILK and the blunt trauma. The swelling will subside typically in a few days. Consider taking anti-inflammatories (Aleve, Motrin, Advil) and Arnica to help subside the inflammation and if there is any excessive discomfort.
Hope this helps.
