I had my lips injected with Juvederm on Thursday morning, I came home and iced all day. They looked pretty that night. I woke up the next morning and they don't look the same. Something is off, and they don't look proportional. Is it possible for swelling/lumps/asymmetry to be worse the day after the procedure? I thought swelling was immediate and subsided. I have stayed away from NSAIDs, no alcohol, no working out, etc. I'm worried and wondering if I need to call my physician.
Can swelling be worse on the 2nd day after Juvederm lip injections? (photo)

Swelling after filler to lips
Swelling/bruising after filler is very common and may give you the appearance of an uneven look. However, this may take up to 10-14 days to completely subside and resolve. I usually suggest to my patients to take oral arnica after fillers to speed up the healing process. If after 14 days you feel your lips are uneven, I would suggest seeing your provider for further evaluation.
Swelling After Lip Filler
Thank you for your question. It is not uncommon to experience swelling after filler injections into the lips, however this should resolve in the next 2 weeks. I always advise my patients to ice the treated area to help resolve swelling in the lips. You can also gently massage the swollen area to help smooth it out. Please consult your injector if this persists after two weeks. All the best!
Swelling after lip injection is common
Hang in there! Swelling is a common side effect after lip injections, especially within the first 24 to 48 hours, and it will subside. People heal and recover differently, so some people don't see swelling until the next day. You're doing the right things. Elevated sleeping the first night is also recommended to reduce swelling. The lips take about 2 weeks to settle with the new product in them. Be patient with your results.
