Juvederm in Lips
If you are happy with your cosmetic outcome, I would recommend just waiting. The visibility and palpability of the product will diminish over the next several weeks. If you are having any other symptoms such as pain or variable swelling, you should see your injector to determine if you need any treatment.
I can feel and see some of the Juvederm in my lips three weeks PostOp
Thank you for sharing your question and photographs. In some patients it takes a bit longer for the Juvederm to soften to leave a natural lip feeling. Assuming the appearance of your lumps is not that concerning to you, you can leave the material where it is and see if it softens and looks more natural over the next week. If, however, nothing changes and you do not want to wait for your body to break down the filler, hyaluronidase can be injected to speed the filler's absorption. Hope this helps.
Lips can be a little lumpy!
Hello! I can see the lumpy area you are concerned about-- and I personally have had this happen to me when I had my lips done a few months ago. I would recommend massage, and patience.... it should soften up quite a bit and gradually diminish over time. I would not suggest getting it dissolved for this level of cosmetic issue-- really, especially if it looks good, and this is more of just something you can feel.
After a few months, then this type of decision can be made.

Hello, and thanks for your question and photos. As long as you like the appearance of the lips, I would not have the product dissolved. It is expected that you would be able to feel product if you feel around for it. Best of luck, Dr. Frucht.
Bumps after juvederm lip filler.
Thank you for sharing your photos and concern. It looks like you are very happy with your filler from an aesthetic standpoint, just enjoy the lips. If you are uncomfortable with the bumps consider speaking with your doctor about partial correction with hyalurodinase. Best wishes. Dr. Shanthala
Lumps after filler
The only way to get rid of the lumps at this point if they are filler, would be to dissolve it with hyaluronidase. Best of luck.
Feeling the Juvederm in lips
The decision to dissolve the Juvederm is up to you. If you are happy with the cosmetic results, there is no need to remove it. It will last up to 5-6 months without any treatment.
