Uneven Swelling One Day After Lip Augmentation With Restylane or Juvederm
I warn all of my patients not to make any "final" decisions until at least one week after their lip augmentation. Side effects associated with Restylane or Juvederm (hyaluronic acid) injections include bruising, redness, swelling and pain and occur in as high as 90% of patients and usually resolve within one week.
Swellinga fter lip augmentation with fillers is very common
IMHO, you shouldn't throw yourself into a panic because your upper lip has swelling after fillers to the lip. It's normal and very typical, especially if you had strenous activity right after the injections...which increased the blood supply to the lip. Call the MD who did the injections for his/her instructions...we would have you apply ice to the area for the next day or so. Hope this helps and be sure to have a layer of cloth (tee shirt or pillow case) between the bag of ice and your lip so it doesn't burn your lip.
It is not uncommon to have swelling and bruising after fillers are injected for lip augmentation. It is too soon to judge the result of your treatment. At this point, just call the office alert them to your concerns and be patient. You may need a touch up as well.

Side Effects of Lip Augmentation
Restylane can produce swelling in the lip as can Juvaderm since they are both hyaluronic acids and hydrophilic(water loving). This means that water is drawn into the area.This is usually a temporary problem that will resolve with ice, benadryl orally and time. Contact your provider if the swelling persists or if you have increased pain.

Swelling after filler is normal.
Everything should be fine with your lips in a few days. The fact that they were even when you left the office is a good indicator that they will be even when the swelling goes down. It is not unusual for one side to swell more than the other. Sometimes it can be associated with some bruising that may develop leter. I recommned ice compresses and benadryl to help the swelling go away. Most swelling is resolved within 2-3 days. A bruise will take longer to resolve. Certainly if the swelling does not go down, call you doctors office.
Swelling After Lip Filler
Tips for reducing swelling after lip injection
Don't worry. Swelling is a common side effect after lip injections, especially within the first 24 to 48 hours, and it will subside. Icing the lips immediately after injections and repeated sessions of icing on the lips for the first 24 hours can help relieve symptoms quicker. Elevated sleeping the first night is also recommended to reduce any swelling. 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. If after 2 weeks, you are still not content with the results, consult your physician.
Hyaluronidaise can be used to quickly melt the injectable filler and return to the pre-injection appearance.
Uneven Lip Swelling After Exercise
Lip swelling after augmentation with fillers is a common occurrence, especially after exercise. Best treatment course would be to apply ice 5 minutes every 30-60 minutes for the first 1-2 days and follow up with your physician in 1-2 weeks. Hope this information is helpful.
