I'm sorry to hear about your experience. It is true that lumps caused by hyaluronic acid based fillers like Juvederm and Restylane will dissolve on their own. It generally takes a few months to do so, however, so please be patient.

Is It True That Lip Bumps Can Dissolve Naturally?

  Bumps and lumps from HA's like Restylane, Juvederm and Perlane will dissolve on their own as will Radiesse.  Be sure to select an MD that understands and follows the proper aesthetics of facial beauty when having Lip Augmentation, facial shaping and contouring using any filler.

Lip bumps

Lip bumps after filler are most likely filler material itself., They do eventually dissolve but it can take 6 months or longer.
