A patient asked 4 years ago
Swollen area is getting bigger. Not painful unless I touch it. swelling not squishy, more like hard lump. Can feel it a lot if put my finger in mouth and feel under lip area towards jaw. No cause, no trauma. Just woke up this morning and got worse throughout day. Worried it is to do with the fillers. Could it be? What can be done?

Swelling Long after the Restlyane Injection

 
Hi and thanks for sharing your question here! Given the long time passed, I do not think it is very likely that the swelling that you have on one side is related to your May Restylane injection. It can be due to allergy or possibly dental issues or other underlying processes. If it persists, I recommend that you see a physician to address your concern and get the proper work-up done.
