Do lip fillers shrink lip size afterwards?

And how long until I see final results?

Lip fillers will give an immediate increase in size to the lips. It’s noticeable straight away. Then the swelling begins, and the lips will get fairly big for the next 24 to 48 hours. Once the swelling subsides you will see your “final” lip size, and your lips will stay that size until the filler starts to get absorbed in six to twelve months. Once the filler has totally reabsorbed your lips will go back to the same size that they were before the fillers were injected. Your lips will not shrink because of having had filler: however, as we age our face loses volume, and this includes the lips, which get thinner.
