Bumps after Voluma injection
Voluma Injections Help Lift the Cheeks giving a Smooth and Natural Result
In the vast majority of patients, you should not feel unevenness or bumps a day after your injections of Voluma. You may have mild swelling and some light massage in encouraged. However, if you have market asymmetry, pain or bumps, you need to contact your injector to discuss your issue as this is atypical. In general, Voluma injections are virtually painless (aside from a small prick of the needle entering the skin - and even this is generally numbed with anesthetic cream or ice prior to injection). Additionally, the Juvederm XC is now mixed pre-packaged with lidocaine with help with ease of injection. While some fillers do swell after they are injected, Voluma has low hydrophilic potential, meaning that it does not absorb fluid and does not swell as much as other fillers. So, usually what you see immediately after you are injection is what your result will look like. If you are still having issues, I would suggest following up with your injector and if you are not satisfied, I would seek out a well qualified injector or board certified plastic surgeon.
Bumpiness after Voluma injections
With my patients, I like to use the mantra that if it bothers you, it bothers me, so do not hesitate to come see me. I'm sure your physician is in the same boat, so do not hesitate to go see them.
Normal aftercare for filler injections can include massage and icing, again this depends on the technique your physician used to inject. Voluma in particular is not terribly hydrophilic, which means if there is edema surrounding it, it should go away and will not likely be volume that is retained by the filler.
To guarantee you're receiving the highest level of care, seek out a dermatologic surgeon, oculoplastic surgeon, facial plastic surgeon or plastic surgeon who is board certified and fellowship trained in one of these "core four" cosmetic specialties.

Juvederm Voluma Unevenness and Bumpiness Will Likely Resolve Within A Few Days
The best thing for you to do is contact your injecting physician. At the time that Voluma is injected, and before a patient leaves our office, we massage the areas of injection to insure that there are no lumps or bumps, and that there is smooth transition between areas of injection and those not injected. There can be some swelling and possible bruising that can contribute to unevenness for the first few days, but usually patients look great immediately after the injections. Scar tissue should not be an issue from your cannulae injection. Hopefully by now your concerns have resolved. Good luck and be well.
