Lip bumps

Hello, and thanks for your question. I'm sorry you did not get the result you had hoped for. It looks to me as though your filler was placed too superficially. I recommend having it dissolved with hyaluronidase. In the future, I recommend only getting treated by a well-trained dermatologist or plastic surgeon. Best of luck, Dr. Frucht.

Lip filler bumps

dear tellevenec,Thank you for writing in. It looks like your lips have a pretty natural shape and the bumps definitely take away from that. Bumps like this are definitely not an optimal result. You may need to get hyluronidase put in the melt the bumps away. You can continue to massage but it may not help. I would recommend using juvederm ultra instead of juvederm ultra plus for the lip. It will have a softer feel. Hope this helps and good luck!BestDr. Rabach

Juvederm to the Lips

It is not infrequent that there are small lumps that persist from Juvederm in the lips. I usually instruct my patients that as long as they aren't bothering you or visible to others there is nothing that needs to be done. Since these lumps are bothering you and visible I would suggest seeing your physician and discuss the option of having the product dissolved with Hyaluronidase.

Juvederm Ultra Plus

I would recommend treating your lips with Hylenex to get rid of the lumps. Looks like they weren't injected super well. Also with time - another 1-2 months, the lumps should go away on their own as the filler is processed by your body.
