Bumps after lip implant
Thanks for your question and photos. Although I dont think removing the implant will fully correct the problem I believe the first stage in correcting this and avoiding it getting worse is to remove the implant. After enough time has passed to allow the reaction and swelling from the removal to pass, I would recommend Restylane or Juvederm fillers to try and get the amount of fullness desired and to correct and asymmetry.
Smoothing Lip Lines
If the implant is there to stay, then we had success with filling over and around those to create a smooth , more natural appearance BELOTERO BALANCE can gently create an elegant finishing touch to
your appearance, filling small gaps beneath the skin’s surface and improving
the appearance of stubborn etched-in smile lines and vertical lip lines above
and around the lips! We always advise collagen stimulation and skin revitalization with Laser Genesis as well for those fine lines and asymmetry.

Asymmetries are normal but fillers can help!
Facial asymmetries are total normal, although some people's are more noticeable. Have you thought about having your lip implants removed? Are you happy with how they look? Some of the asymmetry could be from the implant shifting over to one side. That being said, I've had good luck placing filler into the lips of patients with implants to make them more symmetrical. Make sure you seek out someone with experience in this area. Good luck!

Fillers Can Work Well To Smooth Upper Lip Irregularities
Using Filler to smooth lip lines
Hello! Thank you for your question, and for sharing your photos. It looks as if your lip implant has created some scar tissue, which has lead to the uneven look you are experiencing. A small amount of very soft filler (such as Juvederm Ultra Plus, or Restylane Silk) can soften some of those lumps and help correct the asymmetry, but the presence of the implant and surrounding scar tissue will make this a complicated case. This is a situation in which an in-person consult with a surgeon is probably a good idea. Given the presence of the implant, I would not get filler from anyone except a surgeon who is familiar with the placement of lip implants. You may also wish to consider removal of the implant followed by filler injections to restore volume. I hope this helps, and good luck!
