Volbella and swelling
In addition to ice and elevation, you might consider taking a mild steroid such as a medrol dose pack or low dose prednisone. For future treatments, you should ask to have your injections done with a microcannula which is less traumatic. I'd also suggest going back to Juvederm or Restylane.
Hi there, see your original provider and get a prescription for prednisone. Some swelling with lip fillers is possible, but your amount of swelling is not normal. Could be injection technique or an an allergy or a combination of both. Make sure you're seeing someone who has a lot of experience with fillers.

You are smart to ice it, but I really think you should see your doctor, who may consider injecting some hyaluronidase and/or perhaps giving you some prednisone. The swelling generally starts to come down very soon thereafter.
