Bruising and swelling after lip injection
Thank you for your inquiry and the photos. This appears to be bruising and swelling, which are common side effects after lip injections. Icing and Arnica should help. The lips take about 2 weeks to settle with the new product in them. Be patient with your results, because the rate at which people heal and recover varies. You can minimize bruising too by not consuming certain ingredients that cause bruising such as green tea, ginger, and over-the-counter supplements like Omega‑3 pills.

Bruising and swelling after filler
Hello, and thanks for your question and photos. You appear to have bruising and swelling. 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 an expert. Hope this opinion is helpful to you. Best of luck, Dr. Frucht.

Bruising after lip filler
This is just bruising and not necrosis. Arnica will help. I usually will give a laser treatment for this using the Excel V laser. Bruising is possible with all injectors, but is less with the more experienced injectors in my opinion. See link.
Is this normal bruising and swelling, or necrosis?
Thank you for sharing your question and photographs and I am sorry to hear of your lip filler issues. It appears that your discoloration is most consistent with bruising and not necrosis, and should pass quickly as your results mature over the next two weeks. Keep up with cold compresses and Arnica, but you may want to consider Bromelain supplementation and sleeping with an extra pillow or two behind your back at night to reduce swelling. Hope this helps.
