     I would wait at least 2 weeks for the resolution of the swelling before contemplating additional maneuvers.  Kenneth Hughes, MD Los Angeles, CA

Fillers in lips

At four days after filler injection to the lip you still have swelling. Give it at least two weeks to settle down and then have it reassessed.

Juvederm Joker

4 days out and you definitely still have a great deal of swelling. Because your upper lip was originally so much smaller, injecting anything into it would cause a lot of swelling. Let's hope that in the next week or so things settle down tremendously and you like your results. If not, yes, you can have some dissolved. I know you don't like it, but just wait it out for at least a week and then assess. Facial and lip symmetry is incredibly important when injecting the lip area, but also, a lot of this could (and hopefully is) just swelling that will settle down.

 In my humble opinion, from the photos provided, this is an example of not understanding and following the proper aesthetics of facial (and lip) beauty.  There is an ideal aesthetic proportion of the upper to lower lip which is not present in the lips represented by these photos.

 Lip Augmentation, with fillers like Restylane or Juvederm or implants made of Alloderm or silastic) requires an aesthetic understanding of the inherent beauty goals of making the lips full but balanced and beautiful.  This is what you should seek in the plastic and cosmetic surgeon that does your Lip Augmentation or any other plastic surgery procedure.  If this aesthetic judgement is lacking...things can come out look out of balance and unattractive.  Let the filler dissolve and begin anew.  Hope this helps.

Juvederm in lips and corners now looks like the "Joker"!

Be patient.  You still look very swollen, so it's too soon to assess your final results, You may need to give it a full 2 weeks before you make any judgement or new decisions. Things will settle down and you may love your results when it's finished.

Some swelling is normal

The good news is that swelling will subside. Some patients swell more than others. I would definitely call your physician in 2 weeks if there is no improvement in swelling. Hyalironic acid does cause a some fluid retention, but hopefully its only temporary.
