Restylane lumps top lip. Any suggestions?

I've had restylane injected in to my top lip 5 days ago, I'm a bit worried as I still have lumps and they are quite noticable - especially in daylight, it still looks slightly blue in the centre where most of it was injected- I did want it to be obvious. These bumps are really making me conscious, I've tried massaged them, not sure if it's actually helping. Also when i eat I can feel the section of restylane in the centre of my lip rubbing against the bottom lip-they are still quite firm as well

#Restylane lumps top #lip. Any suggestions?

At this point you should followup with your injector. It is possible to dissolve some of the uneven or superficial filler with Hylenex/ hyaluronidase. Best.

Restylane Bumps

I would give it another week before taking any action.  If it still feels lumpy at that time you may need to have it dissolved with hyaluronidase.

It sounds like the injection was too superficial and uneven.  Massage may help but if it is not better significantly in another 10 days contact your doctor to see if you might need hyaluronidase to dissolve it.

Restylane to the lips, when to evaluate your results

Lip augmentation is a procedure where filler is injected into the lips to increase volume and enhance the borders of the lips. Just by poking the lips with the needle causes swelling. The reactive swelling goes down in the first 2 days. Then it takes 2 weeks for the filler to absorb water and reach your final result. Bruising may delay the result further. Before that point, it's too early to evaluate your outcome and you end up chasing your tail by touching up prematurely.  Patience is virtue. Don't rush into adding more filler or dissolving with hyaluronidase. Continued massaging may help. Make sure you follow-up with your doctor so they can track your progress to a safe and happy result. Safety comes first.
