The swelling that can often occur after lip fillers can cause the lips to look a little uneven for a short period of time. This does not necessarily mean that something went wrong and it may take a while for the product to fully settle and the residual swelling may decrease. Swelling: After undergoing fillers, it's normal for the lip area to look uneven due to swelling. This is normal and doesn't necessarily mean that something went wrong.
It's also important to note that the lips have many nerve endings and are more sensitive than other areas of the body. This resolves after a few days to a week. What other things do people want to know? They want to know if their lips look a little uneven, should they call right away? Well, swelling doesn't necessarily occur symmetrically. Lips may swell more on one side than on the other.
Because of this, patients may notice some asymmetry or unevenness. I often tell my patients to wait about 10 days before seeing them again in connection with this. Wheeler explained that since my lips are on the thinner side of the spectrum, it wouldn't be natural to inject a large amount of filler into them, especially in a single visit. The ouch factor will vary from person to person, but to put it bluntly, lips are sensitive and without anesthesia, lip injections will feel like a very sharp pinch.
My lower lip is naturally fuller than my upper lip (which has a fairly defined shape), and I always thought it would be nice to add some volume to the top to even things out. While lip fillers have become synonymous with increasing volume (Kylie Jenner style), they have a number of other benefits. The type of filler chosen depends entirely on what your goal is for the treatment, whether it's balancing the shape of your lips or adding volume or structure. Redness and tenderness: It's also normal for lips to look red or experience some tenderness after fillers (or any type of injection).
The placement of dermal fillers will depend on your goals, the look you want to achieve and the current appearance of your lips. Smoothing your lips with a dermal filler is a great way to restore a youthful look, irradiating those superficial folds that can also cause uneven lipstick application.
