Lump after Lip Injection
It is recommended to allow 2 weeks for all swelling and bruising to subside. If the lump is still present after 2 weeks, return to your injector for an evaluation of the area. Juvederm is a hyaluronic acid based filler and it can be dissolved with hyaluronidase.
This early after the treatment it is hard to tell if that will resolve on its own or not. Wait two weeks to see if it is just swelling or a bruise. If it is in fact filler it can be dissolved with hyaluronidase. Good luck with your recovery!

It is best to wait two weeks for the swelling to subside. After that return to your injector for a follow up visit and discuss your concerns. If it bothers you it can be dissolved with hyaluronidase.

Lump in lip area
It is best to wait the full two weeks for the swelling to resolve. The lump may not be noticeable after that time. If the lump is still present, return to your injector for an evaluation of the area.
Lump after lip filler injection
I believe it is important to wait 7-10 days, and in some cases up to 14 days, for any swelling or bruising to resolve. If at that point, you still have a lump, I would followup with your injector to discuss your concerns. Juvederm is a hyaluronic acid based filler and so it can be reversed with hyaluronidase.
Lip Augmentation with Fillers or Lip Implant or Fat --- Go Slow, Use Cannulas -- Reverse with Hyaluronidase If Unhappy
If unhappy you can reverse but my suggestion would be to wait 2 weeks before deciding on your next step. Swelling takes some time to go down after injection. Best, Dr. Emer.
