Hardness and Itchy Lumps in Cheek After Voluma- Normal?

I had voluma in cheeks 3 weeks ago. Right cheek was great with no probs but the left cheek immediately developed moderate swelling, hardness and 2 small lumps near to injection site. Swelling has subsided, the hardness is reducing slowly. However, the lumps are still present and feel itchy. I also feel a slight ache on that side of the face due to the hardness and itchiness. Luckily the lumps are not visible I saw doctor after 1 week and he reassured me things would improve, but im very worried!

Lumps after filler


The small lumps you may be feeling may be filler product. Sometimes they can be massaged out, but I would follow the instructions of your doctor.
