I'm feeling anxious as this is my first time ever doing any sort of filler. Anyone else have results like these? (Photos)

Lumps, swelling, and bruising after Juvederm
Thank you for your question AnnaCnd. Juvederm is a product that can be used to enhance the lips. Any time a filler is injected into the skin, patients may have a lumpy bumpy appearance or feeling in the area. For my patients, I recommend gently massaging the area for 5 minutes at a time, 5 times per day, for the first 5 days. This will smoothen out the material and make it look and feel better. Bruising and swelling can last up to two weeks. I have my patients follow up at that time to assess the final results. Please follow up with your doctor for specific recommendations. Good luck!

Lumpiness after Juvederm, especially in the lips, is not only common but should be expected. It will resolve spontaneously over the next 2-3 wks. The lumpiness can be from the Juvederm material and as it equilibrates in the tissue it will become much softer. Bruising can also contribute to the lumpiness and this will be reabsorb by the body. In either case the symptoms will resolve. I won't massage the lips as this will only increase the swelling. You mention dissolving the Juvederm. I don't think that will be necessary but it is nice to know that there is that option if needed.

Hang in there, it will improve!
This can be a completely normal reaction to lip injections. By the time I answer this question you have probably already seen an improvement! Be patient, and all of the swelling and bruising should settle down and you will love your lips! I always tell patients not to panic the first week after injection. It can look awful, but it will improve and it will be worth it!
