Inflammation of tissue is described as a granuloma. A tissue injury and/or the effects of an infection can be some of the causes of granulomas. It is very unusual for dermal filler injections to cause granulomas; however, if too much filler was injected into a specific area this can create a small lump/bump. Try gently massaging the area to see if this helps dissipate the section in case too much filler was injected. If massaging the area is not helpful in a day, consult your doctor as this excess material may need to be removed.
