Uneven lumpy lips after Juverderm. Is it normal? (Photo)

Swelling/Bruising/Lumpiness (early) from Fillers
I always tell my patients to not love their filler injections for 2 weeks. Swelling is very common and sometimes immediate. It can last 3-7 days and a good idea is to use cold compresses. Cold compresses may be used immediately after treatment to reduce swelling only if needed. This may be applied for 3 minutes, 3 times per day, for up to 3 days. This is best done with a bag of peas in a zip lock bag. Only apply light pressure to the area but gentle massage might be necessary if the bump is from the filler material itself. Get Arnica gel if you can find some and apply a few times a day as well to help treat any swelling. Avoid any blood thinners. Bruising can also last 1-2 weeks. I don't recommend hyaluronidase this early and wait a few weeks until the swelling has resolved. If it is persistent or you are worried, set up a follow up appointment with your dermatologist.

Lumps and bumps after lip filler… time and patience is the key
4 days after injection is too early to do any recommendations. The swelling might be augmenting and disguising the underlying final result.
Some techniques to improve the current concern include massaging your filler or using an enzyme to dissolve it. Do everything under the recommendation of your injector.
Finally, make sure that your doctor is aware of your process. He should be able to guide you best in your care.
Wishing you the best with your journey.

Juvederm and uneven lips
Juvederm is a fabulous product for the lips. I can see the problem in the photo that you provided. I would massage the area but if after a few more days it does not look even I would return to your treating physician for correction of the injections. Facial cosmetic injections are an art so it is important to find an experienced dermatologist whose speciality is in this field.
