Swelling lips 2 months after filler...
Thank you for your question. While changes in barometric pressure may indeed cause swelling. The more likely scenario is this is a delayed reaction to the filler. We are seeing this more commonly and there are likely many reasons why this may happen from granuloma formation to biofilm to transient swelling. It is best to follow up with your board certified Dermatologist who injected you to be evaluated and possibly started on a proper algorithm of treatments for delayed lip swelling after filler.

Changes in lips 2 months post injection of filler
Thank you for sharing your interesting question. It is highly unlikely that the change in barometric pressure caused swelling of your lips. See your doctor for detailed evaluation. Good luck,
It is hard to assess what is happening to you without an in person evaluation. You can be having an allergic reaction. Please contact your treating physician for an evaluation.

It is not due to change in barometric pressure but may be some problem with the filler itself so check with your doctor to see what needs to be done if anything
Delayed Reaction to Filler?
It is difficult to assess what is happening to your lip without an in office evaluation. It is hard to say if you are having an allergic reaction or some kind of infection. Please consult an expert in fillers. Best, Dr. Green

Is it probably - NO. But is it possible - YES. Best to hit 10 days to see if the swell resolves or see your injecting doctor this next week if they are operating after the hurricane.
