Lips are very delicate and swell and bruise quite easily when injected. It's best to let them settle for two weeks and see your injector for a follow up.
It takes roughly 2 weeks to see the final outcome, I suggest waiting to see the final result. This can always be reversed or reinjected later if you are unhappy with the results. Best, Dr. Emer.
While swelling from lip augmentation is common, if you are concerned, you should see your injector to be evaluated.
Swelling in the lips can take up to two weeks to go away. Bruising such as what you have can make the swelling even worse. I would recommend you wait until you have finished healing to assess your final result. If there are any areas of over-fill or asymmetry sometimes even gentle massage can improve it, or if necessary, may be dissolved with wydase. My guess is after a few more days that things will be a lot better! Good luck!
Juvederm is known to usually come with some significant swelling when injected, especially in the lips. Most of the bruising and swelling will resolve within the first several days. Keep in mind though that it can take up to two weeks to see the final result.
Thank you for your question and for sharing your photographs. I am sorry that your results have not been what you anticipated. Due to the lips' thin tissues swelling and bruising often accompany dermal filler injections. Both of these issues are affecting your current results and it is difficult to assess your long-term appearance until these have both resolved, commonly over the span of two weeks. Hang in there and allow your results time to mature, if after two weeks you have significant asymmetry or contour irregularities your injector can dissolve the Juvederm away. Hope this helps.
Thank you for your question lcbils. Juvederm is a product that can be used to enhance the lips. After any injection there is a risk of swelling and bruising. In our office we treat bruises as early as the next day after an injectable treatment. Applying cold compresses can minimize swelling. Swelling and bruising can last up to two weeks. I have my patients return to the office two weeks after their treatment to assess their results. Patience during this time is important. Please follow up with your doctor for specific recommendations. Good luck!
Hello, and thanks for your question. Post-filler swelling can take 1-2 weeks to fully subside, so it may be early to assess your final result. If you are not pleased with your final result, the product can be dissolved with injection of an enzyme called hyaluronidase. To maximize the likelihood of a favorable outcome, I recommend that you only get treated by a well-trained and experienced dermatologist or plastic surgeon. Hope this opinion is helpful to you. Best of luck, Dr. Frucht.
