I had Belotero injected in March 2016 into my cheeks, now I have 'lump' when I smile! Can anyone recommend what to do?

Belotero lumps after cheek augmentation
Belotero is an HA filler than can be dissolved with dissolving injections. The procedure is easy and almost instant. Consult with you doctor and bring up your concerns. Good luck
You don't have to wait!

Lump below eye after Belotero
It looks that area under the eye was overfilled. The Belotero will eventually break down on it's own (usually about nine months) but can be dissolved sooner with an injection of an enzyme called hyaluronidase. This works immediately. If you do not feel comfortable with how it looks now, you should consider having it reversed so that you feel more confident. Filling below the eyes can be difficult even in the best of hands and such results are not uncommon. Return to your injector for re-evaluation. Wait a few months to have the area refilled with Belotero or another filler, if so desired.
Lumpiness after belotero
I am sorry to hear that, and i do see a lump in the tear trough area. This is a common area for injection and Belotero is a common filler used here. You do have 2 choices. The first is just waiting it out. The belotero will only last around 9 months, and it sounds like you are already nearly half way there, it may even calm down a bit before then. The second option would be to have some hyaluronidase injected into the area to dissolve the filler, which is usually quite effective.
Belotero injection to undereyes and lumpiness
I see fullness along the tear trough, worsened by smiling. This was most likely caused by too much product being injected too superficially. I would followup with your injector to discuss your results as the Belotero is a hyaluronic acid based filler and it can easily be reversed with hyaluronidase.
