Lip Filler Leaking after Biting?

Hi and thank you for your question! It is extremely unlikely that lip fillers leak following accidental biting of your lips, so that shouldn’t be a concern. Please keep monitoring the site of the bite to make sure other complications (infection) is not occurring, but other than that, there shouldn’t be any negative impact on your lip fillers. I hope it helps and good luck!
