Lump After Lip Filler
Lip Filler and Bump
You can have a lump from a small amount of swelling or from the product. If it does not resolve in two weeks I would definitely return to your treating physician for examination. Best, Dr. Green

Thanks for your question.
Without knowing how your lips looked prior to injection what I am about to write is only conjecture. As such I do recommend that you see your injection specialist for an exam and treatment if necessary.
Your lip looks fuller and quite asymmetric in the pictures you've posted. I do see a small bruise and this could be the source. Icing for up to 1 week and then warm compresses after that can resolve bruising faster.
You could also have asymmetric filler placement.
Bruises get better, so after a few weeks if this improves, it was probably due to bruising. If it doesn't then you probably have asymmetric filler placement.
To remedy asymmetric filler placement, and you have HA (hyaluronic acid) type filler, then a little hyaluronidase enzyme can be injected into the lip to dissolve excess filler. All other filler types have no reversing agent.
Speak with your injection specialist, or see a board-certified plastic surgeon if your concerns continue.
