Swelling/Bruising/Lumpiness (early) from Fillers
Swelling and Adding More Volume
Swelling after filler
Post-filler swelling can take 1-2 weeks to fully subside, so it may be early to assess your final result. If you are not pleased with your final result, the product can be dissolved with injection of an enzyme called hyaluronidase. To maximize the likelihood of a favorable outcome, I recommend that you only get treated by a well-trained and experienced dermatologist or plastic surgeon.
Hope this opinion is helpful to you. Best of luck, Dr. Frucht.

There is always swelling from lip injections. I would definitely wait at least two weeks to assess the lips before having anymore product injected or dissolved. Please consult an expert. Best, Dr. Green
Too early to decide
Better to wait!
I generally advise my patients to wait about 2 weeks to allow all the swelling to go away. Even subtle swelling can make a difference. Sometimes if we adjust too soon, then we are chasing the swelling and just add to the asymmetry. I usually schedule a follow up appointment with all my filler patients after 2 weeks to make sure that everything is perfect and fine tune if necessary. You might just want to go ahead and schedule a follow up so you have it! Sometimes if one area is a little too full after that time period a little massage can even it out. Occasionally it may need to be dissolved with Wydase to get it just right. There are a lot of options if you are still concerned after you have fully healed!
