Is it too much filler in the top or is it still just swollen? If it is just swelling what can I do to help it go down?
At one week there can still be swelling. Most of the swelling related to the injection is gone by two weeks. Your top lip certainly is still quite full. This may have been the look you were going for. I would give it another week before considering doing anything. If you don't like the look in another week you can consider using an enzyme to get rid of the product and start over. As far as how to get the lip swelling down faster, you can use cold compresses (but by one week it probably wouldn't help much), over the counter anti inflammatories, and some prescription anti inflammatories. I would recommend you discuss this with your injector before starting any treatments. In the future, you can also be a little more conservative because it is easy to add more filler if needed.
I hope this helps and good luck.

There can be still swelling after one week and it is too soon to see if this is the product. I would definitely wait an additional week to see the full results. If it is still too large you should return for Vitrase to dissolve the injections. Please consult an expert. Best, Dr. Green
Full upper lip
I just watched Dead Pool last night and actress Morena Baccarin has a similar proportion. There is no doubt she is beautiful, but her upper lip kind of drove me crazy looking at it for 2 hours. Everyone has a little different taste.
