Lip injection bruising

Common Questions and Answers about Lip injection bruising


Avatar m tn It's not sore and the gum seems to be healing fairly well but is really ugly and bigger than I thought it should be. The dentist says it happens sometimes from the injection I had inside my bottom lip. Is that right?
Avatar n tn It probably needs a little time to heal and restore back its normal function. As for the dark discoloration, it may be some slight bruising from the injection as well. If the symptoms persist for a few more days or gets worse, I would go back to your dentist for an evaluation.
Avatar f tn While on aspirin and Plavix, you are almost guaranteed to experience significant bruising from any injection. You could also develop a lump from a hematoma if a larger blood vessel is accidentally punctured. I have had success with Restylane or Juvederm for lip lines, but many injectors have personal preferences about what is most successful in that area.
Avatar n tn The insition was made in my mouth under the lip. could that be the cause for the bruising. Is this going to heal or do i have a black eye forever.
Avatar n tn I had previously been injected (by a doctor) with Restylane in my nasolabial folds (1 cc total), with success. Zero bruising or swelling and great coverage of the sunken area. When I made an appointment with the doctor again, I was greeted by a physician assistant who proceeded to sell the benefits of Juvederm Ultra Plus (less painful, more long-lasting) and suggested 2 ccs.
Avatar n tn I had a lip injection done about 3 wks ago. I've gone to same dr for three previous lip injections each lasting about 8 months. I've never had complications frm the injection other than the usual swelling and bruising and have always been satisfied w results. However, this last visit I had a mixture of juvederm plus mixed w a new hyaluronic acid filler that I've never used b4. I was happy w results until about 2 wkd after visit when I started noticing unusual pain and enormous swelling.
Avatar n tn There are a multitude of techniques for treatment of upper lip lines. Each has advantages and problems associated with the particular technique used. These range from injection of fillers (hyaluronic acids or collagen) to laser resurfacing to dermabrasion to chemical peels. Fillers work immediately but have limited duration. Laser resurfacing and dermabrasion may result in limited improvement depending on the depth and severity of the lines.
1853014 tn?1340042175 Look into getting some biotene products to counter dry mouth. Some people bruise, some don't. You can try numbing the area first with some ice.
Avatar n tn I thought this would be reasonably normal after so much drilling and grinding and believed it to be bruising. Now three days later I look like the lion in wizard of oz. I have some numbness to the top lip. Tongues fine. My right cheek is worse. If I press gently beside the nose I get a strange tingling sensation in the top lip. Is this nerve damage? Does it recover quickly or is this long term? Should I be using warm or cold compresses? I'm treating with Advil but its not reducing the swelling.
660300 tn?1224793961 I had my Wisdom Teeth taken out 2 weeks ago...ever since then my right lip and chin have been completely numb...I went back to the Oral Surgeon who wants to wait a month to see what happens, I have a follow up appointment in November right before Thanksgiving. Is there anything I can do to help? Based on common experience, how long does nerve damage "usually" take to heal? I feel like I am in the dark...I cannot stand it...
Avatar m tn The bruising has subsided but there is still a bump on the tip of my cheekbone about a 1/4 inch in length width and thickness. i went to the doctor yesterday and she said that it might take several months to subside but they usually do go away by themselves, especially hematomas this small. however, i am a little concerned, and she isnt a dermatologist. my question is do hematomas this size usually go away by themselves? if not, what should i do to help it go away?
Avatar n tn The upper abs are doing well, no lumps left, not so sore. Bruising was minimal with the 2nd treatment. I can definately tell a difference on the lower abs. My clothes are also fitting better. I am schedule for my 3rd treatment next Monday. Wondering if they will do it when they feel all these little lumps. Would love to have the area under my eyes done - but just don't want the swelling and lumps under my eyes.
Avatar n tn They put an elastic wrap around me and some small ice packs before I left, and I used a topical lidocaine cream on the area and took two extra-strength Tylenol before the treatment. Today is the third day after the injections, and there is still a lot of swelling and bruising, but the worst swelling has moved down to the pubic area, which is reddened-I guess the fluid has settled there. I am definitely going to take some real pain pills before the next treatment-not just Tylenol!
Avatar f tn * Had carpal tunnel release surgery after median nerve injury from steroid injection attempt in pain clinic. * Constantly cursing in my head bc of pain. Every thing hurts all day. * Random mouth sores not related to the grinding of my TMJ. I’ve had 5 separate sores that lasted a week since Christmas. * Decreased sexual function- dryness and odd difficulty to orgasm- sometimes completely incapable * See black spots randomly or other times I see stars randomly.
Avatar f tn Also, if it was the live virus and she had some other disease such as an autoimmune disease (not Lupus) or a bleeding disorder such as a factor deficiency or not sure about Von Willebrands hemophilia as I think that would show up sooner and have bruising and so forth. Did they check her platelet count? I have Herpes and this doesn't occur to me with the flu vaccine.
Avatar n tn I also think she injected into one of the past lumps that had not dissolved totally. My bruising was horrible - I think she went through a vein with the injection - guess it's hard to know where they are. I'm definately on the "every 4 week" schedule now. I waited 4 weeks this past time and could definately see great results on my abdomen. I think 2 weeks is just not enough time for my swelling to go down.

Avatar n tn B12 with Lipotropics is a weight loss injection, if you go to and click at the bottom where it says weight loss, you would see that there is alot of people taking the shot. I've been on it for a week and already lost 4lbs. You can also goggle mydietsoulutions and can read about it there as well.

Avatar f tn Operation for isolated painful lipomas causing numbness and tingling brings relief while localized pain may sometimes be treated with cortisone injection. It is important that monotonous/ static work and physical and psychological stress are avoided. The article by Drs Brorson and Faghe published in the The Journal of the Swedish Medical Association may be helpful ( ref: Take care and best regards.
Avatar f tn Avoid activities that may cause bruising or injury. Tell your doctor if you have unusual bruising or bleeding. Tell your doctor if you have dark, tarry, or bloody stools. I found this information on this website - I think it could be a result of the combination of the meds and maybe how they work together. I am not sure if there is a way to specify which medication is causing which side effect.

Avatar n tn A little swelling and I noticed yesterday that it was a little red. Today not only is it a little red but it looks like it's bruising. My eyes get a little blurred but not all the time. No fever but I do want to sneeze occassionally. No sinus drainage. Is everyone from a different state? My husband and I are really geting concerned. Does anyone have any kind of idea?
Avatar n tn B12 Shots are only for people who cannot make vitamin B12 naturally in their bodies, they are not for losing weight or as some suspect for giving a boost of energy - overdosing on any vitamin is not good for the body and with Vit B12 there is a minute amount of Cyanide in the injection, so I can't say it would be a good idea to use this - It is a live saver for those of us who really need it - but when your body is happy retaining and using the vitamins that are needed for good health why compli
Avatar f tn PPD goes under numerous other names so you must be familiar with these to fully identifyy PPD-free products. Highlight/lowlights cause no reaction but do not get to roots. Bottom line, if you MUST dye your hair, go with a PPD temporary dye which will take a lot of investigating to locate. DO NOT use Hennas. Some do have PPD-related ingredient.
Avatar n tn Is this normal and how long will it last? When will my period come back? I also have some bruising from the surgery. Can anyone whom have gone thru this know what symptoms I will have, what things to eat and not to eat and. what activities I should or should not do? I am worried as the doctor in the hospital did not tell me anything about post surgery care.
431531 tn?1254101806 I have been struggling with similar painful pimplesque lesions on the tip of my nose, but also at times on my upper lip, sides of the nose, even chin. I've had a bloody nasal passage most winters. I went to the doctor and forgot to mention the blood I see when I blow my nose, but the red thing on the tip of my nose couldn't be missed. She speculated it might be herpes, because topical antibiotics have been ineffective and she didn't think these were bacterially infected.
Avatar f tn Since all of us do have some sort of bulged disc in our cervical spine, I went to a pain managment doctor (an anesthesiologist). I requested an epidural steroid injection in between the C5 and C6. First I was sent to get an MRI of the cervical spine. Once my bulge was confirmed I got an injection. On about the 2nd day after the injection I had intense itching (this is a normal side effect for pain sufferers so I guess it's the same for itching) but then nothing for 3 weeks....
