Lump in lip after receiving hyaluronic acid lip injections. Is this normal?

I received hyaluronic acid lip injections yesterday and I have a large lump on the left side of my upper lip. The swelling was INSANE this morning but seems to have gone down quite a bit except for where I feel the lump. What is happening?

You can try to massage the lump, but if it is still present, call the doctor that did the injection right away.  There is a medicine called hyaluronidase that can dissolve an area of excess filler and it works better if done soon.  Alternatively, if it is only 1 day since your injection, your doctor may be able to resolve it with massage instead.  Hope that helps.  Best of luck!
