Hematoma after receiving Juvederm injection in August? (photo)

I have a noticeable lump in my nasolabial fold, it looks like a pimple honestly, but I know for a fact that it is not a pimple. I believe that it is a hematoma, but I do not want to assume anything. Is it possible that I could have a hematoma from a Juvederm injection that I received in August?

Lump After Injection

This does not appear to be a hematoma. I recommend you have this looked at by your injector and a dermatologist to get an appropriate diagnosis.

What you have is not a hematoma, and not related to the filler you had.  You should follow up with your dermatologist for an assessment.

This doesn't look like a hematoma and would be unlikely to be as a result of your injection in August. I recommend getting a formal consultation with a cosmetic dermatologist to evaluate and treat. Best, Dr. Emer

Juvederm

This does not appear to be a hematoma.  Since it has been some time since your injection it is likely not related to your injection.  I would visit with a dermatologist for an evaluation.

Nasolabial fold lesion

This is not a hematoma. It needs to be looked at by a derm. It's most likely something that should be biopsied.

Suspicious skin growths

Seek immediate evaluation by a board-certified dermatologist. This is not a hematoma. Hematomas do not last that long and do not look anything like the bump in your nasolabial fold.
