Juvederm Volbella - lumpy & sore lips

Volbella - Naturally Metabolized Over Time
I am sorry to hear that you are unhappy with your Volbella results! While it is relatively rare to have a localized reaction to Juvederm Volbella after your procedure, it is not impossible. Generally any lumps that occur after the injections can be smoothed with hyaluronidase, although if this is not an option I would recommend lightly massaging the lips and allowing the body to naturally metabolize the filler, which will occur over the course of 6-12 months. Volbella is a temporary hyaluronic acid filler and it will be dissolved by your body, although the exact timing of when varies for each patient. Fortunately, Volbella does dissipate relatively evenly within the tissue and your lips will return to their original shape within a year. If you wish to have the product removed before your body dissolves it, please ensure that you meet with a cosmetic physician to evaluate the area, discuss all of the potential side effects, and develop a personalized treatment plan for removing your Volbella.
Thank you for your question Unhappy lips. I am sorry to hear that you are unhappy with the results of your treatment. Volbella is a hyaluronic acid filler designed to enhance the lips. The pivotal studies demonstrated that most people enjoy the results of their Volbella treatment for approximately 1 year. At that point the appearance is back to baseline.
Please consult with a doctor for specific recommendations. Good luck!
Volbella last one year but can be removed
This filler made by Juvederm has got an excellent reputation, the result you have maybe (without knowing or seeing the procedure) due to the injector. I suggest you have a consultation with your injector and possibly have this corrected. An enzyme can dissolve the filler. All the best, Dr Davin S. Lim

The product should dissolve over the next 8 months and you should get your natural lips back. If after this time you still have bumps in your lips (you will no longer be pregnant), speak with your injector about treatment.
