It appears that your lips are lumpy and swollen. I would definitely return to your treating physician for evaluation and you probably will need Vitrase to remove the product. Please consult an expert. Best, Dr. Green
Lip Juvederm Injected Wrong?
It will take 2-4 weeks for the swelling to subside. At that time, you and your doctor can decide if everything looks okay or if more Juvederm is needed in some areas or if you need to start over from the beginning. This would entail having hyaluronidase injected into the areas Juvederm was injected. In the meanwhile, cool compresses and arnica supplements can help hasten the swelling.
There are several ways to inject Juvederm in the lips, and the technique used depends on your goals. Some patients just want a little fullness, others may want vertical wrinkles and lines filled in. Early after injection there is swelling, so this appearance might improve with time. One option is another visit to your injector to ask him if he could modify the appearance. He may suggest massage to a smoother contour, injection of a little more to change the contour, or reversal with hyaluronidase. Best wishes.
There are some details not given about your procedure. If it was done pretty recently, then I suggest you go back to your injector to discuss.
Swelling After Lip Augmentation
Thank you for your question and for sharing your photographs. Sorry that you are having some concerns about your postprocedure appearance. Please keep in mind that it will take 2 weeks to see your final result after lip augmentation with Juvederm. Swelling and bruising after filler injection is normal, especially in the lips. Icing can help for up to 48 hours postprocedure. Arnica can also help to minimize postprocedure swelling and bruising. Gentle massage may be beneficial. In general, after lip augmentation with fillers, it will take 2 weeks to allow for normal postprocedure swelling and bruising to resolve and to see your final result. Hope this helps and if you continue to have any concerns, please be sure to see an experienced injector for an in-person reevaluation in order to best address your concerns and to determine the best course of action. Any unwanted filler can be easily removed with hyaluronidase. Best wishes!
Thank you for your question. You are very swollen and it looks like this picture was taken a day or two after the filler was placed. Please wait at least 7-10 days and then reevaluate then. If you are still unhappy please follow back up with your physician for either reversal with hyaluronidase or sculpting with hyaluronidase and potentially more filler placement. Regards, Dr. Matt Elias
Lip injections can cause swelling which may not by symmetrical. You did not mention if the treatment was recent or awhile ago. If it was recent I would wait 2 weeks to let the filler settle and any swelling abate. Frequent massage can help even out irregularities as well as any bumps that you may feel. If at two weeks the asymmetries still exist you could consider additional filler to the areas that are deficient or hyaluronidase to dissolve the filler. I would also suggest that you contact the physician who performed the treatment to let them know of your concerns.
You appear to have an excess of juvederm in the mid upper lip and possible some excess in general. It would be helpful if we had pre injection photos. My Best, Dr Commons
This is too soon to assess. In your description, I get the impression that you just had this done recently like today? This means it could be just needle trauma. Micro trauma to the soft tissue is not uncommon right after treatment and it is usually from the needle itself. Now I would apply ice and allow swelling to come down and reassess in a few days. Id it remains then I would return to the surgeon. Be patient. Hope this helps. Good luck.
Yes, this was a poor injection. It needs to be dissolved with hyaluronidase. I'm not sure of the qualifications of the injector, but the normal anatomic landmarks were not adhered too.
