Cosmetic Treatments QuestionsCategory: Restylane LyftIs this superficial filler/filler cyst in my lip?! 4 wks post Restylane Lyft injection
A patient asked 2 years ago
I recently (4 weeks ago) had 1 syringe of Restalyne Lyft injected into my lips via cannula method. I now have this lump on my top lip. It’s firm, painless and not changing. At my follow up, my provider aspirated thinking it was a mucocele, however, nothing came out. She recommended massage or injecting more filler to camouflage it. I declined the second option. Does this need popped or drained?!

Lump Following Lip Injection

 
Hi and thank you for your question! Having lumps following lip injection is quite common and while most are related to swelling and go away within 2 weeks, lumps persisting beyond that (for 4 weeks like your cases) are more likely to be filler itself and they can be best treated with injection of hyaluronidase. It’s a fairly simple treatment and when done skillfully, you should see great results quickly. I hope it helps and good luck!
