Lumps on interior lower lip

I received lip filler (Juvederm ultra xc) on 11/18/2021. I noticed lumps immediately after the injection. About four months have passed but they still remain. They are interfering with my ability to eat as I often accidentally bite down on them. Who do I reach out to for help with this?

Procedure: Lip Augmentation/Enhancement

Reach out to your Board Certified Plastic Surgeon.

May need to remove the lumps in the lips. There will be scars. May or may not see these scars.

Can not guarantee that all symptoms will improve.

As Board Certified Plastic Surgeon can deal with complications but can not guarantee all symptoms can be resolved.

I would remove these surgically. This is very easy to do

You did not say if it was an ABPS board certified plastic surgeon who injected your lips. If it was you need to go back and see what they tell you can be done and if not then see an ASPS surgeon close to your home for advice. Most likely they would recommend removal.

Sorry to hear of this situation. I would definitely seek the attention of a board certified plastic surgeon. These look like they need to be removed.
