Thank you for your question in regards to Juvederm. Swelling and bruising are very common when injecting filler into the lips. This can last up to two weeks before you see a full correction. If you are still unhappy with your results, hyaluronidase can be injected to dissolve the unwanted filler. To be sure, see two or more board-certified providers in your area for a complete evaluation to make sure you are a good candidate and that it is safe for you to have treatment.
I hope this helps.

I would prefer you wait two weeks to see the full effects of the fillers since there may still be swelling for up to two weeks.  If it still looks too large and unbalanced then please consult an expert for Vitrase to dissolve the product.  Best, Dr. Green

Still early.   The swelling from injection may be causing this.  IF it persists it may be Juvederm that may need to be edged out with hyaluronidase.   Should be easy either way for a perfect result.     My Best,   Dr Commons

Thank you for sharing your question and posting your photo. Your lips are still swollen and will improve over the following week. At that time, if you are unhappy with the results, see your doctor. 
Good luck,
