How long does it take for a fat lip/black eyes to heal?!

Question: How long does it take for a fat lip/black eyes to heal?
I got beat up/robbed last night. I work in a professional setting, so I took the rest of the week off work. My boss is very understanding, but would like to know if I will be presentable by next week. My black eyes aren't too bad, only minor swelling. I'm more concerned about my fat lip which seems to have the most swelling. Not much bruising, just swollen, with a cut.


First off I hope you're okay after your ordeal!
With the black eye I'd suggest Propolis (it's a gel you can usually get at pharmacists or at health shops). It truly works wonders on bruises and cuts! You could try it with your lip as well but it might sting a bit. Just make sure you don't do/touch the swelling too much so it has a chance to go down and you could try putting some ice on it for a few minutes throughout the day.

Hope this helps a little!xxx
