Juvederm is a great filler especially in the lips. If you still feel a lump after several days please consult a dermatologist about having Vitrase injected into the area to dissolve the lump. It is always best to consult a board certified dermatologist for the best cosmetic results.
Thanks for your inquiry. I do find that these lumps will often lessen with massage so this is what I recommend to my patients if there is a small irregularity.
If you recently and it done, sometimes you can massage the lumps to flatten/soften them. If not, they can be dissolved with hyaluronidase.

I would likely give it a few more days. If it persists, consider dissolving the filler with hyaluronidase injection. You should go back to see your injector as soon as possible. If they don't have hyaluronidase on hand, find another office.

Thank you for your question.
I would certainly contact your injector to see if they may advise massage. At this early stage (within the first two weeks after injection) it could be the filler, but it could be swelling.
At any rate, if it persists down the road, the options would be to massage some more, or to apply some hyaluronidase to dissolve the lump.

Massaging the area may help to break up the bumps. This early after the procedure it may not be a permanent issue. If they persist, I would return to the injector. Hyaluronidase can be injected to dissolve the juvederm. For best results, always have a board certified dermatologist or plastic surgeon inject Juvederm.
Thank you for your post and photograph. It does appear as if some of the Juvederm has
been injected either into your orbicularis oris or lip muscle or the mucosa
itself. When these two locations the sub
tissue gel filler is difficult to massage out and manipulate or move.
At this point in time, I generally administer Hyaluronidase
to reduce lip swelling and add some more filler or allow this lip augmentation
I hope this information has been of some assistance and best

Massage is always the first step to help reduce lumpiness after fillers. You can be pretty aggressive in trying to mash the material into a smoother shape. If that doesn't work, your doctor can inject hyaluronidase to "melt" or dissolve the filler. That'll mean you will need re-injection of filler after a couple of weeks, once the tissue has healed. I hope this helps. I wish you the best!

It is still early so massaging might help this problem. If not, hyaluronidase will dissolve it.
