Lumpy lip filler fixes? Should I do more hyaluronidase and then try more filler?

A patient asked 5 years ago
I received lip filler from a reputable place (a well-known plastic surgeon’s office here) and was left with lumpy lips because the filler seemingly “balled up”. I went back to her, she injected hyaluronidase but not all of it left my lips. I went somewhere else and they tried to even me out with more filler. I looked great until the swelling subsided and the unevenness from before is still there. I love the look just not the unevenness.

Fixing Lumy Lip Filler

Hi and thank you for your question! At this time since you seem to like the results right after the 2nd round of injection (when swelling was still active), it would make more sense to try to replicate that effect by careful injection of filler to add some volume and smooth out the lump. It should be done conservatively to avoid over filling, but the good thing about hyaluronic acid fillers is that they are quite forgiving and any excess can be dissolved later on if needed. I suggest taking a conservative approach and doing it in small steps if possible to make sure you can achieve the look you want before undergoing more rounds of filler followed by enzyme. I hope it helps and good luck!
