Check with your ENT doctor and see if they believe there is any connection. It does not seem likely that there is a causal relationship.

I am sorry to hear about your hearing loss. There is no relation between hearing loss and lip fillers. I would follow up with your ENT to determine the cause.

Thank you for your question. Sorry to hear about your hearing loss. There is no evidence that Juvederm injections to the lips would cause hearing loss. I would continue to look further into resolving the issue with your ENT.

Lip augmentation and hearing loss

Lip augmentation is a procedure to improve volume, symmetry, or borders of the lips. Facial fillers or your own fat may be injected in this procedure.

Hearing loss can be caused by many things, but there is no reported cases or known connection to lip augmentation injection. Hearing loss presenting days after the injection makes it even less likely to be related. Hearing loss should be evaluated by your ENT doctor with a formal hearing test (audiogram). Safety comes first.

Thanks for your question. I'm so sorry to hear about your hearing loss, and I hope it proves to be transient. There is no connection between your lip filler and your hearing loss. Keep pursuing this with your ENT, and best of luck to you.

There is no correlation to the hearing loss and lip injections. These areas don't have a vascular connection. Sudden hearing loss is often a viral process.

This wouldn't be related to your injection. I suggest following up with your ENT to discover cause. Best, Dr. Emer

There is no way that juvederm injections into the lip could cause a hearing loss.  So need to figure out what did cause it with your ENT.
