Neck Swelling After Fillers Such as Juvederm or Restylane -- Reverse With Hyaluronidase
Reverse the filler and start RF treatments such as exilis ultra or venus legacy to soften the area. Best, Dr. Emer.
Neck Lumps After Filler Injection
Hi Maggie and thanks for your question. I assume from your question that you had your neck injected for the horizontal necklace lines across the neck. These are notoriously difficult to inject without causing lumps. Over the years, I have seen that you need to use the softest filler possible to get a smooth result. Your lumps are extremely unlikely to be granulomas. They are collections of filler. You should try to massage them out if possible. See what your doctor recommends you do, but if you can't get the lumps to go away, your doctor may have to dissolve them with hyaluronidase.
Granulomas vs. Product
Hi Maggie, normally granulomas are very hard. Restylane would be softer typically than a granuloma. One easy way to find out is to inject Hyaluronidase into a bumpy area and if the bumps resolve quickly, it is Restylane. We inject Vitrase to solve this problem for outside patuints that are unhappy with their injections elsewhere.
