Sometimes you can be bruised or swollen or lumpy from fillers. Rather than rushing to have it dissolved it is best to wait two weeks to see if the symptoms resolve and you are satisfied with the results. If there are still lumps after two weeks then you should return to your treating physician who can dissolve the Restylane in that area alone.
It's hard to tell at this point whether the bump is due to swelling or a bit too much filler. I would massage the area gently for 5 minutes twice a day, be patient, and re-evaluate it in 1 week. If it is due to too much filler placed into that one spot, it will be no better in a week and at that point you will have a decision to make;
1. You could try having your injector place a very small amount of hyaluronidase into the lump, hoping to dissolve the lump without affecting the rest of the filler, or
2. If it's not too bad you could just ignore the lump and enjoy the fullness you have overall. Good luck.
Best option is massage and waiting it out as you stated. Also returning to see the injecting doc would be advisable..//
As it is still relatively recent since your injections I would recommend waiting for the swelling to subside in order to see whether it is related to the swelling or not. Once the swelling subsides, if the lump is still there then revisit your injector.
I would wait two to three weeks before doing anything. If at this time you still have a lump go see your physician. A lump in this area can be removed through a small puncture so I would not dissolve your product if you are happy with it.
You probably should wait another week to see if this lump will go down. Your injector can then sometimes get the lump to dissipate with firm massage and a very small amount of kenalog (steroid) injection- Or you can have him/her inject the hyaluronidase. If you go the hyaluronidase route, it will very likely dissolve the rest of the filler in that lip.
Give it another week and then ask your injector to re-evaluate.
Swelling is very common after lip injections, I suggest you wait 2-3 weeks for the product to settle before you see your final result
I would wait at least 10 days after the filler was done to see what is filler and what is swelling. At that point in time swelling should be resolved and you can appropriately determine what could be too much product, vs what is actually swelling.
