looks like you had quite the abrasion injury as well! The lip usually heals remarkably well. as far as swelling is concerned, remember that the lip is very sensitive. I tell this to all my filler patients as well - think of how much the lip swells when you bite it by accident, let alone when you have an injury to it! you may or may not need a small revision at some point. to be honest, it is way to early to even be having that discussion. but give it a few weeks to heal and see how it does. i always suggest you follow up with a PS to help guide you through the wound care and make sure things are healing properly. Best of luck!
