A week ago I got fat transfer to my lips; there are hard lumpy parts & are still very uneven. Dr said it is normal? (Photos)

Fat Transfer to Lips, Final Results?
Some lumpiness or uneven contours is common after fat transfer.
Most likely this should improve though no one can tell you for sure if it will give you the results you were hoping for or if the results will be perfectly even.
Unfortunately facial fat transfer is fickle and can be technically challenging and somewhat unpredictable.
For now your best thing to do is to be patient and follow up with your doctor.

Uneven lumpy lips soon after fat transfer
I perform fat transfer very frequently in my practice and whenever I see uneven lips soon after surgery, i am put on high alert. In this case, I would be seeking out a dilute steroid or Kenalog injection into the area perhaps with some 5-fluorouracil to smooth out the area. This approach is often times very successful in ensuring a smooth result. Obviously bring up your concerns with your doctor and best of luck.
