I had a deep phenol peel and fat transfer to my lip 8 weeks ago, why is it so tight? (photo)

PROBABLY THE FAT
Deep Phenol just around the mouth runs the risk of donut ring mouth. The color, tightness, and texture does not match the rest of the face. We always do the entire face.
If lip enhancement is needed, we wait until the phenol peel has fully healed to assess how much, and where to fill for precision results.
We have come to these conclusions after 34 years of trial and error.
This swelling is most likely due to the fat. Ask your surgeon if a steroid dose pack may help
