Swelling after Juvederm in the lips
Thank you for your question. It is very common for the lips to look
over corrected or fake the next day. I often tell my patients that this
is the "oh my gosh" day. This is due to all the swelling
that ensues. It may last a few days with every day showing a decrease
in swelling. The more you ice the first day or two, the less swelling
you will have. I would wait a few days to a week and then return to
your injector if you still have concerns after that. If you like the
look of the lips at some point during the swelling reduction, then take a
picture. This way you know what volume you like in the lips for the
Swelling 2nd Day After Juvederm
Swelling a few days after treatment with Juvederm at the lips is normal and can sometimes take a week to resolve. The swelling can usually be accentuated in the morning after waking up and usually gets better throughout the day as your head is elevated. You should continue to see an improvement, but if you don't, definitely follow up with your injector.
Yes, swelling can be worse the second day.
Thank you for your question. Swelling is a common side effect of lip injections and may take 2 weeks to subside. Apply a cold compress for 10 mins several times a day and sleep with your head slightly elevated. If your swelling lasts longer than 2 weeks contact your injector to discuss your concerns.
Swelling after filler injections
It is not uncommon to experience swelling after Juvederm. This should settle down over the next couple of weeks. It is hard to be patient, but hang in there! If you feel that things are not to your liking after waiting a couple of weeks, please seek the advice of your physician.
Juvederm and swollen lips
Yes, the swelling may be worse the day after Juvederm injections for the lips. Wait 2 weeks to see the full result, and if you are not happy, please return to your doctor for assessment.
Swelling after lip fillers such as with Juvederm
It is not too unusual that some patients swell significantly after their lips are injected, regardless of which filler is used. Certainly, there might be some fillers that would absorb too much water, but when the right filler is used, such as Juvederm Ultra, or Restylane or Belotero, there may be a large swelling as a result of the injection itself. The lip area may take a few days to resolve this swelling. It may rarely happen, but can happen to a patient that has numerous filler treatments without complications in the past. When this does occur, it may take four days, less or more, to resolve. There are some treatments that the doctor can prescribe, if necessary, to reduce the swelling more quickly, if it is significant.

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.
