Belotero and swelling
Firstly both Belotero and Juvederm are top line products, one of the best for lip augmentation. Now, lumps and bruising are very common following fillers in this area. I can not comment on the injection technique, however product wise, you are in good hands. Swelling can take up to 10 days to subside, your Doctor would have told you that. If there are lumps at the 2 week mark, they can be dissolved with an enzyme called Hyaluronidase. All the best, Dr Davin Lim. Brisbane. Australia.
Lip filler results
Bruising and swelling is common after lip filler injection and is often hard to differentiatefrom misplaced filler in the first few days after treatment. I would recommend waiting 7-14 days to see if the lumps improve. If they do improve, then they were likely due to swelling or bruising. If they do not improve, then they were probably due to poor injection technique and misplacement of the filler. In the case of the latter, the lumps will improve with massage and/or hyaluronidase injection. I recommend discussing your concerns with your treating physicians. Please make sure he/she is an experienced injector.

Bump in lip after Belotero
It is too soon after your treatment to determine if this bump will go away or not. It could be swelling or product or both. Wait at least 7-10 days to re-evaluate it. In the meantime, you can massage and apply ice. If it's not going away with time, it is product and may need to be dissolved if not aesthetically acceptable. I would consider a second opinion the next time you fill your lips if you have had issues after the first two treatments.
