How likely is it to develop lumps after filler injections in the face?

Aesthetic Medicine Skin, Hair & Nails

I am considering Juvederm filler for my undereye and face. What are the chances of developing lumps after having fillers injected? 

DOCTOR’S ANSWER (4)

Visible lumpiness after under-eye Hyaluronic acid filler injection, while uncommon, can occur if the skin under the eye is very thin, or if the filler chosen is too firm, or if too much filler is used. As such, it is better to choose softer versions of Hyaluronic acid fillers when patients have thin under-eye skin. 

Mild lumpiness can also occur if there is bruising after the procedure. This should resolve naturally within a week. It is important not to take certain painkillers like aspirin, and not to consume alcohol immediately before and after treatment as they increase the chance of bruising. Certain techniques like using a blunt cannula to apply the filler, can be used to reduce the risk of lumpiness and bruising.

In general, good technique coupled with a sensible selection of the filler type and using an appropriate amount of filler should reduce the risk of lumpiness after under-eye filler treatment to a minimum.

Hope the above helps!

Cheers,

The causes of lumps developing after filler injection is usually due to 3 main reasons:

-  Type of filler used

-  Placement of filler

-  Injection technique

Fillers that are placed too superficially generally have an increased risk of forming lumps.  This is made even more so if the type of filler used is a "hard" filler.

Likewise, if a very "soft" filler is used but was placed superficially, lumps that may form could potentially be massaged away.

Therefore, knowledge of the facial anatomy and different layers of the skin to place the different types of fillers as well as injection technique is definitely paramount in reducing such side effects.

Hope that helps and do find an experienced injector that you are comfortable with before proceeding with the procedure. All the best!

Hi,

It's not very likely to develop lumps after having fillers injected. Having said that, it does depend on how superficial the injection is and the technique of the injector. If the product is placed too superficially and in lumps, then you may feel that it is lumpy. The deeper the injection, the less likely you are to feel any lumps.

Under the eye, the injections are placed more superficially than other areas of the face so it is possible to that you feel some lumps there. If you do get any lumps, they can usually be massaged away.

In short, it is unlikely for there to be lumps after fillers for facial rejuvenation as long as the injector is experienced: 1) chooses the correct product 2) correct technique in placing the product in the correct layer(s).


I would advice you to choose a doctor that you are comfortable with, is experienced and that you have seen his work (before & after pictures) to get a sense of his/ her eye for beauty.


Hope this helps.


Cheers,

Dr David Deng
