Normal for filler
This is normal. You can feel the filler for months likely but it looks great. You are worrying far too early. Enjoy your filler. My Best, Dr Commons
First time lip augmentation and worried.
Thank you for your question. Swelling, feeling the actual product, small lumps, bruising, redness etc. can all occur after using filler to augment the lips. So yes you could say this is more or less "normal". Most all these occurrences will have resolved themselves by two weeks. Thus unless what you are experiencing is progressively getting worse instead of better wait the two weeks and see your injector to assess your outcome and satisfaction.
Excellent question. Yes you will feel it initially, however that should subside as the days go on, as will the swelling. If you are still worried you can always go back to the injector for a check up. Thank you for your question.

You may initially feel the filler after your injection. Some firmness and swelling is normal and will resolve in 1-2 weeks. I recommend following up with your injector if you remain concerned. Best, Dr. Emer
Feeling the filler in lips
It will gradually become softer and less noticeable. Continue to give it time. It takes a couple weeks for things to settle down. After that, it is stable and if still a concern, go to see your provider.
Feeling product after injections
Thank you for your question. Depending on the amount injected, and your native tissue, yes, you can feel the product initially after treatment. Typically, this gets better with time, and becomes softer and less noticeable. You need to give a full two weeks for the swelling to settle - after this, if you can see any product, you can discuss with your injector whether or not to dissolve the filler or to simply wait it out. Best of luck!
After lip filler, are you meant to feel all the product?
Thank you for sharing your question and photograph. Due to the thin nature of the tissues of the lips it is not uncommon to feel fillers for the first several weeks after treatment. Over time the filler will incorporate itself into your tissues, leaving you with a more natural feeling. Hang in there and allow your results more time to mature. Hope this helps.
Feeling Product after Injections
Thank you for your question. The tissues in lips are thin, therefore it is common to feel fillers for the first few weeks after treatment. Over time your lips will become softer leaving you with a natural feeling. Remember it takes up to two weeks for all swelling to subside. I recommend contacting your injector if you still have any concerns.
It is normal to be able to feel the filler, although some of what you may be feeling is swelling and not product. It takes about 2 weeks for the bruising and swelling to resolve after lip injections. If after this time you still have concerns, return to your injector for an evaluation.
Most people can not feel the product but the lip may feel firmer after treatment. This may one due to swelling. Best of luck.
