Restylane® likely can’t be moved 2 weeks after injection.
The good news with any dermal
filler such as Restylane® is that the results are not permanent. The filler can
generally be molded or sculpted immediately after injection to give the desired
shape, however, it seems unlikely that much manipulation would be possible a
week or two after it’s injected. If you’re not happy with your results and the
attempts to move the filler around are unsuccessful, you always have the option
of hyaluronidase injections which can dissolve the filler and will return your
lips to normal. In the future, make sure you’re visiting an experienced cosmetic
surgeon and that you clearly communicate your goals in order to get the best
Can Restylane be moved around after 2 weeks?
Thank you for sharing your question and photo. It probably is not possible to move the injected filler around. You have the option of having it dissolved and reinjected.
Restylane Injections and Reversal
You can mold Restylane immediately after the injections and for a short time afterwards. Two weeks later if you are unhappy with the results you can have them dissolved with Vitrase. Please consult an expert. Best, Dr. Green

Can Filler Be "Moved Around" After Injection?
I am sorry to hear you are not completely
satisfied with your lip filler! There may have been some miscommunication
between you and your physician, as filler generally cannot be displaced or
purposely “moved” once injected. I will often smooth and “mold” filler
immediately after injecting an area, however results are not typically malleable
past an approximate 48 hour point. With that said, although “moving” the filler
is most likely not a viable option at this point, rest assured that hyaluronic
acid products like Restylane can be easily and safely dissolved via
The amount of volume you are seeing is most
likely in part attributed to swelling, which is why patients are advised to
give filler at least two weeks before evaluating the final result. You may find
that after giving your lips more time to settle, they may appear more to your
liking. Communicate your specific concerns openly with your physician at your
two week follow-up, and together you may decide on any revisions necessary.
Best of luck!
Generally fillers especially in the lips can be moved around a bit but usually in the immediate after period. 2 weeks seems a bit long .are you seeing a board certified dermatologist or plastic surgeon?
Restylane - filler not in right place in the lips
Thank you for asking about your Resytlane injections.
- Generally, if the filler is out of place, the earlier it is massaged back into place, the better.
- However at times, fillers can be re-positioned months later.
- If you trusted your physician enough to have her inject you, it makes sense to trust her now,
- I assume she is a specialist in cosmetic treatments -
- That is, a Board Certified plastic, oculoplastic, facial plastic or dermatologic specialist.
Always see a Board
Certified Plastic Surgeon.
Hope you find this information helpful. Best
Can you move Restylane around after a week?
In a word, no.
It looks as if you may have some bruising and the swelling that accompanies a bruise can persist for a couple of weeks, but the filler is going nowhere unless it's dissolved.
