How long for filler to set in the lips?
Thank you for the photos. Sometimes there may be some contour irregularities after injection. This can be due to the product placement, bruising, or other issues. You are very early in your post procedure course. In our office, we usually wait 10 to 14 days before seeing a patient back as we know there will be swelling. Swelling can be present for a while, even longer if there was any bruising. Often contour irregularities can be smoothed out. Please let your well trained, experienced injector know about your concerns.
It can take 2 weeks for swelling to subside, so you may not be seeing your final result. No special precautions at this point -- OK to go about normal activities.
Best of luck, Dr. Frucht.
I hope this helps.

I would not be worried about movement now since it has been three days since the injections. Best, Dr. Green
