I also had aquamid in approx 2003 in my lips under my eyes and In the chin area My lips are very lumpy And I have a sausage like lump under both eyes and one beside my mouth. I tried to have some aspirated from my lips and it got infected and swelled up really big If I get any other filler under my eyes to cover the aquamid I get lots swelling and bad bruising for weeks I regret ever having it and I think it should be banned I'm too scared to have it removed and it's going to costs thousands

It's normal, it's swollen a little bit , the granulomas was pretty big, so the flesh are working to reconstructive themselves.

Hi Megan and readers.... The swelling begins to decrease pretty well but it's still swollen in the area of my upper lip, actually I have a hematoma and it's very hard when I touch my upper lip, I can smile a little but not too much. I have to wait One month again for the hematoma fade away..... My lips are ok , my upper lip find a nice shape back... I'm feeling sometimes very sad and sometimes I keep hopes to find out my lips back like before....

I can understand why you would feel sad, you have been through a lot it sounds like. I'm glad to hear you are seeing some healing, and I will be hoping that hematoma goes away as quick as possible for you. I know it is probably hard to take your mind off of it, but try to focus on the other positive things in your life. I will be hoping your healing goes smooth. Please continue to keep us posted.

Sending you a hug!
