Are these lumps swelling or misplaced filler?

A patient asked 4 years ago
I got Juvederm filler in my lips 48 hours ago.I am very modest with it, and don’t even use a whole syringe. The dr used the same amount as last time, but last time I had almost no swelling and just a tiny bruise and my lips looked great the same day. This time my lips have swelled quite a bit. Yesterday, they were super swollen and have bruised. Today is better but what I’m concerned with is my smile. The two lumps on either side of my top lip. Not sure if it’s swelling or if I need to go back?

Lumps after Filler

  Hi and thank you for your question! Most likely the lumps are just swelling which might last several days following the filler. You should wait for two weeks following the filler injection and if there are any lumps or asymmetry, then see your doctor for a follow up. Not only every patient is different, the way the same patient reacts to filler injection each time can be different and hence it is not uncommon to have more or less swelling compared to previous treatments. I hope it helps and good luck!
