Concerned about Lumpy Fillers?

If you have concerns about lumpy fillers or need professional advice, you are in the right place.

Causes of lumpy fillers

While any procedure carries risks, selecting a reputable, experienced practitioner is crucial to minimising them. Minor swelling or bruising is common and usually subsides quickly. However, incorrect injection of dermal fillers can result in lumps forming either soon after treatment or even years later.

Filler migration occurs when the filler is not properly placed or too much is injected, causing it to move from its intended position. This is particularly common in mobile areas like the lips. The use of hyaluronidase can break down the filler and remedy the situation.

How can we treat lumpy filler?

If hyaluronic acid-based dermal filler becomes lumpy, it can be dissolved with the enzyme hyaluronidase. However, longer-lasting fillers may require surgical excision. It is essential to know what is being injected and by whom.

Even well-tested fillers are foreign substances to the body and can sometimes trigger an inflammatory response, forming a granuloma around the filler. This results in a lumpy growth. Treatment options include steroid injections, which interfere with fibroblast activity, or surgical removal. However, surgery can be challenging and may leave a scar.
