Cheek and fillers
You should speak with yoru doctor about what he wants you to do if the filler is a bit lumpy. SOme will recommend that you do it, while others may have you come in.
You don't want to massage it yourself because you don’t want to move the product
You should consult with your doctor. You don't want to massage it yourself because you don’t want to move the product. It will affect the results.
Massage after Juvederm
Since you paid your choice of injecting doctor, I would call him to be seen ASAP and strictly follow his post injection instructions. I always give patients a post injection protocol of massage (demonstrated), ice therapy, and a follow up appointment if any questions or concerns within 2 days. Just the way I practice.
Good luck from MIAMI DR. B

Massage after deep Juvederm
Please call your doctor and ask them what is best. They have done the procedure and know how they put it in. Massaging for the deep fillers may still be effective a week later. Bruising is often worse on one side.
