Hard lumps in top and lower lip after Juvederm lip filler?

Cosmetic Treatments QuestionsCategory: JuvedermHard lumps in top and lower lip after Juvederm lip filler?
A patient asked 3 years ago
I just had Juvederm for a lip filler. The swelling has gone down and now I have two big lumps and one small lump on my top lip. I’ve been massaging them and it doesn’t seem to be working. It’s very noticible, especially when I smile. It’s also very uncomfortable. What can be done to fix this problem??

Hard Lumps in Lips after Filler

 
Hi and thank you for your question! Having lumps and bumps during the first few days after filler in lips is common. Even though you indicated that the swelling has gone down, it can still persist for up to two weeks and you shouldn’t do anything until the residual swelling is completely gone. If what you see is indeed swelling (very likely), massaging it might actually slow the healing process. Please keep an eye on it and as long as all you see is just painless swelling, allow two weeks and at that time if issues exist, please see your physician for reassessment and revision if needed. I hope it helps and good luck!
