I had Juvederm injections done on Friday. My lips have bumps. Is it possible to have a blood clot from the Juvederm? (photos)

Is it possible to have a blood clot from the juvederm? They were very big and swollen and they are getting better a little bit, but I have 2 big lumps on the right side and one small one on the left.. No problems on the bottom lip.. What could be causing this and is it permanent? My dr doesn't seem worried and that it will go away but idk I'm convinced

Juvederm Bumps in Lips

You have some unfortunate bruising right now that will resolve in one or two weeks. At that time, any remaining lumps should be treated with a little bit of hyaluronidase to smooth out your upper lip.  You should have no concerns for a serious complication.

Best of luck

Juvederm in lips

It appears that you developed significant bruising after your lip injections. I would wait 2 weeks to let the lips settle and bruises/swelling to subside. If you are still noticing lumps i would go back to your injector and get the lumps dissolved with hyaluronidase.

Juvederm in lips

It looks like you had some significant bruising after the injections.  This can create nodules in the lips which will resolve over the first week or two.  Warm compresses may help.  If you end up with a nodule after 2 weeks you may need to dissolve it with some hyaluronidase.

If after 2 weeks no resolution than possible bunching of the HA product has occurred. Only time, massages and or hyaluronidase injections could correct...

Bruising and swelling to lips after Juvederm

You have some significant bruising and swelling to your lips. But this is common after filler injections. It can take up to 2 weeks for this to resolve entirely. I don't see anything I'm particularly concerned about (like an arterial blockage). Keep your hands away from the areas and don't try to massage the bumps. You can move the filler by doing this and make things much worse. Ice can help, but mostly it just takes time. See your injector after 2 weeks if things don't look as you expected them to.
