Consult with an experienced lip injector, for the best results.
After a JUVÉDERM® lip injection, swelling can typically take between 48 to 72 hours to subside. Even a small amount of JUVÉDERM® can cause considerable swelling as well as bruising, so it’s not likely that 24 hours after your injection, your parents won’t notice your lips. Applying ice or cold compresses can help to reduce swelling, and avoiding blood thinning medication such as aspirin several days before and after treatment can also help to manage swelling. For best results, consult with an experienced lip injector. Best of luck to you.
Juvederm Lip Injections
Often, a very small amount of Juvederm used for lip augmentation can cause noticeable postprocedure swelling and bruising, which is considered normal. Swelling usually peaks 48-72 hours after injection. We say the result you have immediately after the procedure is the expected result after all the swelling has resolved. So maybe you would actually be OK to see your parents the evening of the procedure but should go away the the second 24 hour period... Hope this was helpful!
Lip Augmentation with Fillers or Lip Implant or Fat -- Go Slow, Use Cannulas
I tell people to have 2-3 weeks before planning big events with lip and eye injections because of the bruising / swelling risk. Best, Dr. Emer.
Swelling after Juvederm
Hi ~ In general you can expect swelling to last 2-3 days after lip injections. It is likely you will still have significant swelling after 24hrs and other people could know you got injections. The amount of filler you get will not dramatically change the resolution of swelling so whether you get 1/2 syringe or a full one you will still have significant swelling. Good Luck.
Swelling and Bruising After Lip Augmentation
Thank you for your question. In general, even a very small amount of Juvederm used for lip augmentation can cause noticeable postprocedure swelling and bruising, which is considered normal. Swelling usually peaks 48-72 hours after injection. Icing is beneficial for up to 48 hours after the procedure. Arnica is helpful for minimizing normal postprocedure swelling and bruising. Please keep in mind that, even with a small amount of Juvederm, it will take 2 weeks for normal postprocedure swelling and bruising to resolve and to see your final result. Please be sure to see an expert injector for an in-person consultation to fully discuss your concerns and your goals and expectations in order to determine the best treatment plan. Hope this helps and best wishes!
Bruising and swelling after Juvederm
Thank you for your question plasticsurgerymaybe. Juvederm is a filler that can be used to enhance the lips. Bruising and swelling may occur after a filler treatment and can last up to two weeks, sometimes more. For my patients I recommend avoiding blood thinning medications such as aspirin a few days before and after a treatment to reduce the risk of bruising. Application of cold compresses before and after a treatment will decrease any swelling. Please consult with a doctor for specific recommendations. Good luck!
Lip injections can lead to bruising and a lot of swelling. It may take more than one or two days for the swelling to subside.
