Second Aquamid Injection to Lips

Are there any risks when injecting another cc of Aquamid? My first treatment was a year ago and I developed several granulomas on my upper lip where it was applied. They only hurt when I bite or press my lips harder and they are not visible

Aquamid Injection into lips


Hello and thank you for the question.

Aquamid injection into the lips may be associated with the development of granulomas. A secondary treatment with Aquamid would thus predispose you to develop more granulomas. While your current granulomas are not visible, you may experience lip distortion with the developement of more granulomas.  I recommend discussing  these issues with your clinician so that you may make a more informed decision prior to having your lips re-injected with Aquamid.
