4 years lump under my lips after JVD filler

Thank you for sharing your question and photographs. Unfortunately without a "before" picture it is difficult to offer definite advice, but based on the area that you are pointing to in one picture this "lump" is likely the formation of your underlying lip muscles, and not due to filler placement or granulomas.  Hope this helps.

Persistent filler from 4 years prior

If there is a concern about filler remaining and causing a nodule, a simple injection with hyaluronidase can dissolve this. Sometimes after being there for that long, collagen will form and it will be hard to dissolve.
