Delayed swelling after lip filler
Swelling 6 months after filler injection is unusual. I recommend that you see the person that injected you or another local Plastic surgeon or Dermatologist as soon as possible for an evaluation. It will be important to know what product was used and any prior filler injections you have had.
I have seen this type of delayed swelling from lip filler in several patients. We don't know what causes these delayed swelling. Just to be safe and to actually verify the diagnosis, see your injecting doctor for an exam. They tend to resolve after a few days but get it checked out. Good luck

Few questions: #1 Rapid onset of unilateral upper lip swelling months after a filler injection must rule out infection, trauma, idiopathic issues. Recommend PO antibiotics and steroids. #2 Was the filler USA legal? or was it from a non licensed injector?
