I had Restylane injections in my lips and now have a permanent defect? What can I do to get my lips back to normal? (photos)

Uneven lips after Filler
Lip lumps can be caused by several things;
Residual hyaluronic acid(Restylane)- more hyaluronidase may help
Nodule- tissue reaction to the product- a steroid injection usually helps
Blocked minor salivary gland- a combination of hyaluronidase and steroid may relieve any blockage.
Lumpy After Restylane
It may still be filler. It can sometimes take a series of Hyaluronidase to dissolve all the filler. I recommend following up with your injector. Best, Dr. Emer
The Hyaluronidase has not been enough
I believe this is some Restylane remaining. Please, have you doctor to use more Hyaluranidase to dissolve more of the product.

It is unlikely that this is a pocket of Restylane but could be that the Restylane made a cyst form in the area of injection. It can easily be removed but be sure you are seeing a board certified dermatologist or plastic surgeon
