Volbella bubble / lump

Cosmetic Treatments QuestionsCategory: VolbellaVolbella bubble / lump
A patient asked 4 years ago
I had an injection of volbella a week and a half ago the first 2 pictures are today 1 with a filter to try and “hide” it. The other two are of the day of injection (very painful welling). I’m very unhappy and the place that did it (nurse, I’ve learned my lesson) is stating that this is normal. This bubble on my lower lip is hideous and people are staring it’s been 1.5 weeks and it’s solid to the touch. Will I need the enzyme again? The nurse used it the day of injection as well

Lump after Volbella

Hi and thank you for your question and sorry to hear about the issues. Following any filler injection, swelling is very common and during the first few days up to 2 weeks, it can be very difficult to distinguish filler from swelling. Hence, I always advise my patients to wait for at least 2 weeks following any filler injection and then if there are any concerns with the results, come for a follow up and we can do a reassessment and use enzyme to revise the results if needed. Enzyme injection sooner than that is not recommended. At this time, I recommend that you allow the two week period for all the swelling to go down and then do a follow up. Of course this is only the case if the aesthetic look of the results is your concern and if you are experiencing other issues (pain, tenderness, redness) you should do the follow up right away. For best aesthetic results, it’s always better to go conservatively and work in steps. I hope it helps and good luck!
