Doctor Answers 2
White patches from injection
White bumps after filler
The areas of discoloration you describe belong to your regular lips. When you got the filler, your Fordyce spots (or sebaceous glands) got pushed up below your lips. They can be smoothed out by applying pressure on them but you should ask your doctor how to and how often to massage these areas. A surgical lip implant would be long lasting and will not require repeat injections . It is good to get filler to see how much you like your lips filled but after repeat injections you will find that a lip implant saves you money in the long run and gives you a lovely result .
