Juvederm is normally fairly soft but if large amounts were injected, you might feel them as "lumps." These could last for 3 months or more.
The upper to lower lip ratio should ideally conform to the golden ratio, of 1 for the upper to 1.618 for the lower. You might discuss this with your physician before the next treatment.
You can certainly ask your physician if you can see the treatment record if you have any concerns about what was injected.
Lumps 3 months after Ultra is virtually unheard of. I use Ultra Plus in lips and do not experience lumps. I wonder if you have had something else injected. You can try hyaluronidase injections and if it is a Juvederm produce, it will go away. If you were injected with some other non hyaluronic product,
hyaluronidase injections will not cause the substance to disappear. Get you records, ask you doctor, and get a second opinion with a board certified ABPS - FACS surgeon. Incidentally your upper lip is way too big and out of proportion with you bottom lip. My Best, Dr C
It is not very common to have lumps after Juvederm ultra lip injections. If it does not dissipate on its own, you could get small amount of Hyaluronidase ( dissolves product) injected into the lump to dissolve. Hope that helps.
Fillers don't always lay down smoothly and evenly, especially if large volumes are delivered. Finesse is important and if there is a lumpiness that doesn't correct after a few days of massage, then one may consider hyaluronidase enzyme to dissolve excess filler in the lumpy areas. It's always best to see the treating doctor for such revision if possible.
It appears a large amount of filler was used on your upper lip as it is very disproportionate to your bottom lip. If excessive amounts were injected it could take the "lumps" longer to soften. If you are concerned you were injected with something else you can ask your provider to see your chart and what exactly was injected. If the lumps persist and you were in fact injected with a filler you can dissolve the filler with an enzyme called hyluronidaise.
Thank you for your question.
If the product is Juvederm, it should go away with hyaluronidase. If not, it may have been another product.
It is possible that a large amount was injected into this location. If that is the case, then it could take longer to go away.
To be sure, return to see your injector or see two or more board-certified providers in your area for a complete evaluation to make sure you are a good candidate and that it is safe for you to have these treatments.
I hope this helps.
WOW if truly still with lumps than you maybe correct. Ask for copy of your medical record with the specifics of the Juvederm injected. If there is not a chart than you have grave concern....
Juvederm would not normally resorb in 3 months. So this may still be Juvederm. It should go away in another few months. If you don't like it have your doc inject some hyaluronidase to dissolve it
Juvederm is a filler that slowly dissolves over 6 months to a year in the lips. Sometimes after an injection of Juvederm into the lips, a lump can form. If it formed immediately after injection, it is likely an area were a larger volume of the product was injected. If a larger volume is injected in a small area it can form a bump.
Depending on the size of the bump, it should be smaller 3 months after injections. It should continue to get smaller over the next 6-9 months.
You asked if it could be silicone in your lips. Only the doctor that injected the product can answer the question. That would be a serious breach of trust and negligent if a doctor injected a product without your permission. If you went to a qualified injector with a great reputation, this would be highly unlikely.
I hope this helps.
Of course having lumps 3 months after Juvederm is not normal. It can be dissolved with hyaluronidase. In my opinion, the aesthetics of the lip were incorrect and this leads to obviously "done" lips. The top lip should not be bigger than the bottom lip. The ratio is about 40% upper to 60% lower. Also they are out of proportion (too large) for your face. I like cannulas for lip injections.
