Lip Swelling/Bumps After Fillers Such as Juvederm or Restylane -- Reverse With Hyaluronidase
This can be improved with hyaluronidase injection or needle to remove the fat. sometimes people get mucoceles from fillers and this is a dilated gland and wont improve without surgery or lasers. I suggest you see an expert. Best, Dr. Emer.
Thank you for your question Pinky249. Juvederm is a filler that can be used to enhance the lips. Lumps and bumps are common after such treatments. I recommend that my patients gently massage the area for 5 minutes at a time, 5 times per day, for the first 5 days after the treatment. This will smoothen out the product. Juvederm can also be dissolved with hyaluronidase. In our office we do not charge patients to dissolve lumps if they were treated in our office. However, every office has different policies. Please follow up with your doctor for specific recommendations. Good luck!
This can happen sometimes from the placement of the filler. A lot of times massage to the area can help to dissipate the bump. However, if this does not work, I would return to your injector so they can place hyaluronidase into the area to dissolve bump. Depending on you injector, usually this isn't a charge but that would be determined by the injector.
This is a normal side effect of Juvederm but easily treatable. Either you can consult with your injector and have him or her massage the bump away or if this doesn't work, Hyaluronidase may be an option to dissolve away the product. Depending on your physician, you may or may not be charged.
Lump in lip after Juvederm
I would discuss with your injector. It probably can be dissolved with hyaluronidase. I wouldn't charge for this procedure but this is up to your injector.
