Bromelain after injectable fillers
Thank you for your question and your picture post.
A day after injectable filler in the lip, the localized swelling is most likely related to a bruise (hematoma) from the needle. This is different that diffuse swelling from too much product injection or tissue swelling which happens as the hyaluronic acid based product draws water molecules into the lips.
I would not worry about this as it is localized and the 'early type' and suggest that you take some bromelain as it has been shown to help your body resorb bruising faster. Bromelain is a natural enzyme that is found in the stem of pineapples.

Swelling right after the procedure is an extremely common occurrence and I would definitely wait a week to evaluate the results. Best, Dr. Green
Asymmetry after Juvederm common
Any asymmetry can be corrected with a reversal agent known as Hyaluronidase.
All the best

Thank you for your question and photo. It is normal to have swelling and bruising after any type of fillers, especially the lips. We usually tell our patients to wait a full 2 weeks for everything to fully settle. At that point if you notice asymmetry then you should follow up with your injector. Best of luck
