Juvederm delayed reaction
Because Juvederm is made of hyaluronic acid, which is a component made within our own body, reactions are very rare. It is also rare to have a reaction 4 months after the injection was placed. I would be interested in knowing what you mean by reaction, bumpy? itchy? etc. To break down the existing filler, you would need to use Hyaluronidase. I would wait until the filler has been removed, and then seek surgical options such as implants if you truly cannot use a type of filler.

Late Reaction to Juvederm
Without a photo, it is impossible to give you personalized advice. A 4-month late reaction to Juvederm is almost unheard of. Perhaps the Juvederm was injected too superficially and/or in too big a glob around which your body has formed a capsule and is now trying to expel. Follow up with your injector. Juvederm is made of hyaluronic acid (HA) which is made naturally in the body. If your body truly can't tolerate an HA filler, an alternative is your own fat.
