She wanted to enlarge her lips. Shows a cautionary effect

A popular video, which was created as a warning, was published by Tik Toka user – Ruby. The woman only wrote that she had undergone a lip augmentation procedure, which requires hospitalization. A severe allergic reaction made her lips and part of her face very swollen. Ruby showed a few photos and this was not the effect she expected.

Fortunately, after two days, Ruby made a video saying that everything is fine. The swelling subsided and she left the hospital.

Lip augmentation is one of the popular aesthetic medicine treatments. The basic technique of lip augmentation is injecting them with filling substances: foreign (hyaluronic acid, collagen, botox) or your own (fat). As after any treatment, complications may also arise after this.

Swelling and redness around the mouth are normal symptoms after the procedure. They may persist for up to a week after the procedure, although the swelling usually disappears after a few days. However, if the swelling does not disappear, the lips hurt and an increased temperature appears – this is a sign that you must see a doctor.

Other possible complications:

  • hematomas on the lips after hyaluronic acid, which may arise by puncturing the capillary during injection of the mouth – usually self-absorbed after a few days, and there is no need for medical intervention;
  • fibrosis occurs when the procedure is performed frequently and with a large amount of filler. The papules may be visible to the naked eye or palpable by touch;
  • inflammation of the mouth – it may take several weeks if left untreated. In some cases, it may be necessary to use hyaluronidase, a compound that breaks down the injected hyaluronic acid
