Question : I have a friend who had Restylane lip injections, and her lips were horribly swollen afterwards. Is this a normal reaction?
Answer : After lip injection, the swelling is usually not too severe. There also can be a little bit of bruising. However, this is usually not bad and after a few days it improves. Unfortunately, in some patients, there can be a lot swelling which usually just improves with waiting and watching.
