I had restylane (dermal fillers) in lips. Bottom lip is too big (post swelling).Is it easy and safe to reverse? My doc has never done it. Should I find someone who has?

I had restylane (dermal fillers) in lips. Bottom lip is too big (post swelling).Is it easy and safe to reverse? My doc has never done it. Should I find someone who has?

Really the doc who did the procedure should learn to use it if s/he is going to be injecting and if you trust him/her to work through this with you. The hyaluronidase is a bit expensive. You might be able to negotiate the cost if agreed that you got more Restylane (dermal fillers) than needed. ...Read more

However, if tissue disruption has blocked original path, they may not/never regrow fully. Without the previous fibers & changed sensory signals to your spinal cord & brain, a sense of numbness may persist, sometimes permanently. ...Read more

Bruise: If you are referring to an ankle, you either sprained it or have a fracture. Besides the ice and elevating it, you can try Advil/Motrin for the pain and swelling.

Ice for 15 minutes every 1/2 to 1 hour while awake. Probably bumped your ulnar nerve running by the olecranon, commonly called the "funny bone". ...Read more
