Bump after injection of lip filler with Belotero
Thank you for your question.
Do not massage the area. I recommend that you wait 2 weeks before you make any decisions as to whether to intervene with possible dissolution IF there is a "lump or bump". It is too early before the 2 week timetable to be concerned about uneven injection of product because the lump could be a bruise.

Belotero is a good product for injection and I would definitely wait two weeks for the swelling to subside. If there is still swelling after that time I would return to your treating physician for Vitrase to reduce the product. Please consult a board certified dermatologist who is a specialist in cosmetic injections for the best results. Best, Dr. Green
Swelling after lip filler
Swelling/Bruising/Lumpiness (early) from Fillers
I always tell my patients to not love their filler injections for 2 weeks. Swelling is very common and sometimes immediate. It can last 3-7 days and a good idea is to use cold compresses. Cold compresses may be used immediately after treatment to reduce swelling only if needed. This may be applied for 3 minutes, 3 times per day, for up to 3 days. This is best done with a bag of peas in a zip lock bag. Only apply light pressure to the area but gentle massage might be necessary if the bump is from the filler material itself. Get Arnica gel if you can find some and apply a few times a day as well to help treat any swelling. Avoid any blood thinners. Bruising can also last 1-2 weeks. I don't recommend hyaluronidase this early and wait a few weeks until the swelling has resolved. If it is persistent or you are worried, set up a follow up appointment with your dermatologist.

It is common to have lumps from injections into the lips due to swelling. It is very early at this stage to determine whether the lump if filler or swelling. I would recommend that you go back to your practitioner to have this checked out.
