I had 1 cc of Restylane injected into my upper and lower lip two weeks ago. I did a lot of research about the product and found a very reputable doctor to perform the injections. I wanted to have fuller, more noticeable lips. If only I would have known then what I know now.
Now I have a huge bump on the left side of my bottom lip. I can't smile because my lip is so asymmetrical. I have been to urgent care twice, and have seen an ENT specialist who told me the injection blocked a saliva gland, which has now become infected. I look so much worse than I did before.
The Restylane company has never heard of this type of adverse reaction so I want to make everyone out there aware. I don't know when or if the bump will ever go away.
I will never do this again!
