What caused the hard lumps after Bellafill injections?

Lump Cessation--Massage, Venus Legacy after Bellafill

It's hard to answer this without a time-frame. Bellafill, like other facial fillers, can cause lumps that eventually resolve. Massage, 5fu/steroid injections and venus legacy treatments can help soften the lumps. Best, Dr. Emer.

Bellafill nodules

This is hard to answer with the information given. I don't know the time frame or if the lumps are tender, red, or just palpable. Most nodules are related to clumping of the product and are injector related. If they are noticeable, the can be injected with steroids/5FU sometimes with improvement. If this doesn't help, excision can be done. It is very important to use a very experienced injector for this.
