Lip Swelling After Restylane
Restylane lip swelling
This is due to all the swelling that ensues. I often tell my patients that this is the "oh my gosh" day.
It can be 'oh my gosh' my lips are so swollen! It could also be 'oh my gosh' I love my lips even more than yesterday. Either way, the swelling 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 future.

Restylane is a great filler for the nasolabial and lips. However, there is often some swelling that can last a few days after the procedure. I would recommend you applying some ice compresses to your lips. You should be able to return to work.

The prednisolone is a prescription medication with potentially serious side effects and it sounds as though it was given to you for a different problem. You should discuss this with your physician before taking any more.
Swelling is not a given after filler injections and injecting smaller amounts and adding more later if needed can prevent most of it. It also helps a little to start the icing treatments immediately arter the injections.
Try to have a good weekend knowing this will get better very quickly.
