The records should show what was used. If it was juvederm ,rarely patients can form thickening.At 5 years the options may be limited but hyluronidase can dissolve filler. This treatment needs to be customized.

Ask for a copy of your chart

If this was done 5 years ago, its not Juvederm.  There is no telling what is in there.  Ask for a copy of your chart for your records.  Don't tell them why.

If there is any confusion about what the doctor used to treat and fill your lips please request a copy of the medical records.  In those records it will document which filler was used and you can proceed from there.  Please consult an expert.  Best, Dr. Green
