Lumps from Juvederm

Lumps from Juvederm can occur weeks to months later.  If there are still lumps a year later you will need Vitrase to dissolve the lumps.  Please consult a specialist in Juvederm for the best cosmetic results.

If you still have lumps in this region one year after your treatment, then I would recommend having them dissolved with hyaluronidase. This will help to smooth out any residual filler that may still be present and causing you problems.

Thanks for your question.  I recommend you go back to your physician injector to have the area re-examined and discuss ways to correct this problem.  If the lump is a collection of filler, it could be dissolved by injecting hyaluronidase. Best of luck to you!
