Lumpiness : Lumpiness is not a desired or usual outcome after injection with a filler. Nonetheless, hyaluronic acid fillers can be dissolved with another injection called vitrase or hyaluronidase. The preference is for avoidance of lumps with specific injection techniques.

If : If your doctor does your dermal filler correctly, you will not get lumps. After it is injected, the doctor is suppose to mold it with his/her fingers. Gently feel your face while still in the office to make sure no lumps are present. Even if you do not feel lumps immediately after, you can manipulate the filler for several hours afterwards. But, it is always best the doctor does it. Good luck!
