You either had more than just restylane injected "yesterday" or you had previous fillers. I would not use a HA dissever on you til I knew what you had done before!!!

Restylane in Lips

It appears that a too much Restylane was injected in your upper lip.  Your lips appear disproportionate.  It is possible that it is just excessively swollen, and this may subside after a few days.  If the fullness persists, then hyaluronidase (an enzyme) could be used to dissolve the Restylane away.  However, even with a very small amount of the enzyme, all the product may dissolve.

I almost never inject in the center of the upper lip. I have noticed, that even with very small amounts of product, the mid upper lip will roll out considerably and become more "duck bill" appearing.

Swelling after lip filler

{{ voteCount >= 0 ? '+' + (voteCount + 1) : (voteCount + 1) }}

Lump and swelling is very common after having a filler injected to the lips, it usually takes a full 2 weeks for the product to settle to see your final result. Contact your medical provider if more then two weeks past and the issue hasn't resolved. Your physician can inject an enzyme called hyaluronidase to dissolve the bump.

Very swollen after Restylane in lips..should improve but not sure if it will look much better

{{ voteCount >= 0 ? '+' + (voteCount + 1) : (voteCount + 1) }}

It appears that too much was inject for your lip enhancement.  I think it should improve, but to the extent that it looks normal is questionable.  The upper lip is now much larger than the lower and this is not the right ratio.  Normal ratio is 40% upper, 60% lower lip.  To minimize swelling in the future, I suggest blunt cannulas for your lip restylane injections, see video.  You might need hyaluronidase to undue the poor correction.  Steve Weiner, MD, Facial Plastic Surgeon, Destin, Florida.

Swelling following filler in the lips

You are experiencing swelling following the injections, and your condition should improve. If you are not satisfied with the result after 2 weeks, any excess product can be dissolved with the enzyme hyaluronidase and your lips will appear as they did prior to treatment. I hope this helps, and I wish you the best of luck.
