Swelling after lip fillers (Photo)
United Kingdom, GB

Hi I got restylane filler about 12 hours ago and I was wondering if the swelling was normal? It's also very painful, I'll post a before and after picture for you to see. I'm quite worried actually as it's painful and tight. I did not ice my lips when I got home and I've sat up for about 30 minutes icing them which is probably the tingly sensation I'm feeling? Ive also taken paracetamol for the pain. The only thing I'm worried about is if I'm having an allergic reaction? Thanks
