It is difficult to say without examination but it sounds as if you have an infection in that area. I would definitely suggest that you return to your treating physician for evaluation and possible antibiotic treatments. Best, Dr. Green

Without any photos it is difficult to comment on whether what you are experiencing is normal or the signs of an infection. After lip fillers there tends to be swelling (which can be pretty substantial in some cases). However, the pain, heat, and redness are not what you should be seeing 4 days after treatment. This does raise the concern for an infection. The best recommendation is to see your injector in person for an evaluation. This way you can start any appropriate treatment if necessary.
I hope this helps and good luck.
