I still have a weird smile and upper lip still looks like i might be swollen, just a little stiff, but it doesn’t feel swollen. Should i consider getting it corrected? Little worried correcting it might make my lips worse???

How Ling to Wait after Lip Filler

 
Hi and thank you for your question! I always advise my patients to allow 2 weeks for all the residual swelling to completely go away. The swelling is expected to be much less at 10 days, but it might still be there, and rushing to do further adjustment while some swelling is still present is never a good idea. I hope it helps and good luck!
