How Can My Injected Fat Lump In My Lips Be Reduced?

Q: Dr. Eppley, I am reaching out to seek advice from you who has a rare expertise in fat grafting and lip surgery. I am 63 years old and underwent a secondary face lift along with lip fat grafting a year and a half ago. Unfortunately, I have been left with a noticeable lump on my upper lip. I understand that such cases are complex and that many surgeons may be reluctant to address them. But I hope that your proficiency in this field could shed light on my condition and offer a potential course of action.

A: Injected fat lumps in the lips always have to be excised, generally through either a vertical vermilion or a vermilion-cutaneous inciosion depending upon its location and size.
