Uneven Lip Filler Easily Resolves!
My best advise to patients after lip
augmentation, is that you will LOVE the look best in 2
weeks. By then the swelling will subside and any unevenness can be gently
massaged and mobilized. If Juvederm "travels" in the mid -lip,
it can be smoothed but is best done by the provider. Cold compresses may
be used immediately after treatment to reduce swelling only if needed. It will
Swelling/Bruising/Lumpiness (early) from Fillers
I always tell my patients to not love their filler
injections for 2 weeks. Swelling is very common and sometimes immediate. It can
last 3-7 days and a good idea is to use cold compresses. Cold compresses may be
used immediately after treatment to reduce swelling only if needed. This may be
applied for 3 minutes, 3 times per day, for up to 3 days. This is best done
with a bag of peas in a zip lock bag. Only apply light pressure to the area but
gentle massage might be necessary if the bump is from the filler material
itself. Get Arnica gel if you can find some and apply a few times a day as well
to help treat any swelling. Avoid any blood thinners. Bruising can also last
1-2 weeks. I don't recommend hyaluronidase this early and wait a few weeks
until the swelling has resolved. If it is persistent or you are worried, set up
a follow up appointment with your dermatologist.
2 weeks post injection
Thank you for your photo and question. Some swelling and hardness is very normal at this stage. This should subside and final results can be seen after about 2 weeks post injection. Cold compress and gentle massages to the injected areas may help. Be sure to have regular follow up appointments with your board certified plastic surgeon. Hope this helps. James Lee
Lip augmentation with Juvederm
I would suggest waiting at least two weeks before determining final outcome. Please consult with an expert. Best, Dr. Emer
Filler in lips
Fillers in the lips can cause a firmness if not massaged. You are also likely pretty swollen and it may take a week or so to settle.
This will soften in a month or so and you will be fine. No reason to panic but do visit your Juvederm idoctor You will be fine. My Best, Dr Commons
Can juvederm cause hard lip edges?
Thank you for your question and for sharing your photograph. If Juvederm was directly placed into your vermillion border it would be normal to experience some ridging along this area as a result of the material. This will soften as your results mature over the next two weeks. Hang in there!
Ridging after Juvederm
Thank you for your question. The good news is, you should see some improvement over the next couple of days. Whenever a filler is placed - especially in the lips - there can be some firmness and nodularity. This is more prominent is the product is placed somewhat linearly (one continuous injection) and more superficially. NSAIDS (Motrin or Aleeve) may help with the swelling, as well as time. Icing at this point will probably not help too much. If, in a week or two, you are still concerned, you can likely start a gentle massage to the area to help soften the product. If, after this, you are still concerned, I would suggest going back to your injector for an additional evaluation. Best of luck!
Final Result After Lip Augmentation With Juvederm
Thank you for your question and for sharing your photograph. Sorry that you are having some concerns about your postprocedure appearance. Please keep in mind that it will take 2 weeks to see your final result. Swelling and bruising after filler injection is normal, especially in the lips. Icing can help for up to 48 hours postprocedure. Arnica can also help to minimize postprocedure swelling and bruising. Gentle massage may be beneficial. My best advice would be to give it a full 2 weeks to allow for normal postprocedure swelling and bruising to resolve and to see your final result. At that point, if you continue to have any concerns, please see your injector for an in-person reevaluation in order to best address your concerns and to determine the best course of action. Best wishes!

Thank you for sharing your question and photo. You are swollen, but fortunately this should subside in a few days. Massage and application of cold compresses can hasten recovery.
