Thank you for your question. The swelling and bruising can surpass the two week mark, but keep in mind that injectables typically do not need to be repeated more than every 6-12 months. Once you finish healing, then you will be able to evaluate the efficacy of the injectable. Please keep your board certified facial plastic surgeon appraised of your healing process.Best wishes,
Hello, and thanks for your question and photos. I'm sorry to hear you're having some trouble. Swelling can take a couple of weeks to resolve, and sometimes bruising can take longer. You may actually have formed a small collection of blood known as a hematoma, which may taken even longer to fully resolve. Warm compresses can help speed up resolution. I would follow up with your physician injector, but if you are having INCREASING pain, redness, to other color change, I would get seen sooner. In all likelihood, time will be your friend in this situation. Best of luck, Dr. Frucht.
I suggest seeing your physician if after 2 weeks there is still swelling and pain this can be reversed. Best, Dr. Emer.
Thank you for your question and photographs and I am sorry to hear of your filler issues. It appears that you may have suffered the development of a lip hematoma - a discrete blood filled pocket of fluid. These can be very tender to the touch and take time to fully resolve. One thing that can't be appreciated, but should also be ruled out, is the possibility of an infection being present that may necessitate the need for antibiotics or dissolving of the filler material. Speak to your injector and have them evaluate you in-person for the best treatment advice.
