I have bumps 3 weeks after having lip injections. How to get rid of them? (Photo)

I got my lips done for the first time 3 weeks ago. I was only injected in my upper lip since I already had full lips to give a heart shape effect. My lips feel like they're ruined! I have bumps and they won't go away. It's so embarrassing. I can't wear lip stick or lip gloss as it highlights or more. What should I do?

Bumps after fillers in the Lips need to be reversed with Vitrase

If you have bumps three weeks out after having filler injections, then you can have these bumps reversed with Vitrase. Please consult an expert in facial cosmetic injections for the best results.  Best, Dr. Green

Lip bumps after injection

The bumps can be dissolved with hyaluronidase. This is not a permanent problem. It can happen with even the experienced injector, but more often in the less experienced one. See link.

See your doctor

I would recommend going back to the doctor who injected the fillers and see what they recommend, maybe you can do some massaging. Good Luck.
