I had Restylane injected into my top lip and, as a result, I had developed a granuloma. I’m looking to have a touch-up procedure done and would like to know if there is anything that I can do to prevent this from happening again.
Well the first thing I will tell you is that it is highly unusual. So unusual, that I highly doubt that you actually had Restylane placed in your lip. While it is possible that you did develop a granuloma with Restylane, it is highly unlikely. I would go back to the physician or person that placed the injection and discuss this with him or her. Granulomas are typically associated with silicone or biopolymer injections. The other thing to ask yourself and the person who injected it is whether it was an actual granuloma. Was it maybe a small hematoma that developed? This is much more likely if it was actually Rastylane that was injected.
