Bruising and possible regret after lip fillers?

Recommended Posts

Hey, so I finally bit the bullet and got lip filler on Saturday. Just 1ml. More in the top than the bottom as I basically had no upper lip. I'm pretty bruised and swollen, which I've read is normal. I have a few lumpy bits in my top lip that I can feel but not see. I'm just wondering how long before I can expect them to look 'good' or at least decent. Coz at the moment I definitely look much worse than my before pic 😆

I know like you that brusing and swelling can be normal after lip fillers but the lumps I'm not to sure about either,  I've only had a bit of botox in my forehead lines and my crows feet , I've not progressed to fillers yet which is my next step , sorry i can't be of any help but I'm sure i read somewhere that they may feel a little lumpy for a few days and should settle down so hopefully this is the case with you. 😊 

Oops edited to ask how painful was it ( my botox didnt really hurt at all)

It didn't hurt as much as I expected! I think my nurse did a really good job of numbing me beforehand. She put the numbing cream on a good 10-15 minutes before she injected. She did my anti-wrinkle stuff first while the numbing cream worked it's magic. The initial prick was a little painful but not too bad at all, no worse than the dysport/botox. It's more just a strange feeling coz you can feel something is going into your lip and it feels tight. I think if the numbing cream hadn't had time to work properly it might be pretty painful though!

I got 1ml of filler around four weeks ago. I got some bruising and could feel some small lumps in my lips too. I brought a small ice pack with me to my appointment and applied it on the way home and on and off afterwards for the next couple of hours. The swelling was so much less than the first time I ever tried fillers! So that’s a tip I would recommend. A majority of my swelling went down over the first two weeks. The bruising went in a few days. Arnica cream is really good for helping to get rid of bruising too. 

Also, I don not feel any of the lumps that were there earlier.

It takes at least a few days if you’ve got a lot of swelling.

They are looking a lot better after a week. Still a little more than I would like but I've read that some people feel it takes 2 weeks for them to look good. The bruising has gone now so that makes a big difference!

Thats good to hear, can you still feel the lumps or have they settled now
