Bad swelling VS. too much filler in Lip

Lip Swelling/Bumps After Fillers Such as Juvederm or Restylane -- Reverse With Hyaluronidase
This is most likely to be swelling and bruising, especially if you took aspirin beforehand. Some patients swell much more than others particularly the upper lip. Use as much ice as possible and give it two weeks for the swelling to completely resolve. At that point any adjustments can be done.

Your question has limited information but I would say that your swelling is more than usual and probably not from the filler but from a reaction to it. In your situation I sometimes prescribe Prednisone. Even without this, It will likely subside within a few days but I would urge you to see a board-certified dermatologist to have it analyzed. If a board-certified dermatologist was your injector this will be an easy thing for you to do. If your injector was not connected with a medical office you'll probably need to contact a Dermatologist.Good luck with this. Dr. Adriene Stewart MD nF AAD
