Severe swelling and pain following lip filler injections is not normal. It is best to contact your injector immediately and discuss this with them.

It would be helpful to know a few facts about what occurred. What type of filler was placed into the lips and how much filler was placed? How long after the filler was placed did you take this picture? How is your health and do you have any allergies?  You can submit more information.

Some patients have swelling from lip injections depending on how much product or how sensitive they are to the fillers.  Ice and massage and you can't judge the results for a few days.  If you are concerned please consult your treating physician.
