Juvederm Vobella Fail? Winnipeg, MB

I had 1 syringe of Juvederm Vobella injected into my lips two days ago. I always had a very beautiful lip with a great shape but wanted to add some volume and plumpness to my lips - Especially the top lip. I had the procedure done on Thursday and now on Saturday, I feel like this could be a huge mistake. My lips are lumpy and lopsided and look downright awful. My smile is terrible and I am questioning what I did to my face. I feel like I've completely ruined my look. Are my lips still adjusting? My husband is a dentist and is saying that I'm still experiencing inflammation and swelling and that it should "go down"...


I forgot something in the original post - I initially had half a syringe injected over one week ago. I was unhappy with the results as half a syringe really didn't do much for me. Exactly a week after, I had another half syringe injected. Could this be a contributing factor to my sausage lip look?

Getting There...

About a week later and my lips are not symmetrical and there are a few bumps. The doctor has told me that my lips "pull water" and will release over the next few weeks. My Cupid's bow is especially off when I smile. Thoughts? Perhaps I'm being too critical. I'm considering having them "fixed" by another doctor.

The struggle!

I would first like to thank everyone for their comments. Very much appreciated. I would also like to apologize for the delay in my response as I have been on vacation.

You will see a few photos attached to this update. I am still not happy with the look of my lips. The pout is okay but I'm looking for a bit more of a prominent pout to offset my rather large nose. I still would like to obtain a natural look, however. My smile, on the other hand, looks completely lopsided as one side turns up more than the other. My Cupid's bow generally seems off. I am considering seeing a new injector (the most highly renowned one in my city and also the most expensive at $650 per syringe) to fix this problem of the smile and pout. What do you all think? My smile is dreadful, in my opinion. I have always loved my teeth and smile and now I feel like I have a "sausage lip" effect happening.
