I had Juvederm injection around upper mouth and after 10 days I still have lumps & bumps that are still pretty visable - is that a problem or will they still dissolve??
Bumps and Lumps from Juvederm After 10 Days?

Juvederm around the upper mouth
You should return to your doctor 2 weeks after the injections for assessment. Bruising may have caused the bumps and they will resolve. If it is the Juvederm, massage may smooth them. If massage does not help, dissolving the filler or adding more may be necessary. Please have your treatments with an experienced dermatologist or plastic surgeon.

Bumps and Lumps from Juvederm after 10 days?
You may want to wait another 1-2 weeks to see if there is improvement secondary to a reduction in swelling. If you look the same at 4 weeks as you did at 2 weeks post injection, you can either try and add more filler to blend the area or try and dissolve the "bump."

Juvederm can cause lumps if it is not evenly distributed or massaged. Massage will help alleviate the lumps or bumps. However at 10 days this may not be possible. If massage does not work, sometimes Hyaluronidase can be injected to dissolve the product.
