Hyaluronic acid injection has become one of the most common dermal filler procedures performed by clinicians worldwide. Although it is considered to be a very safe and successful treatment option, several complications have been reported from this type of filler injection. A case of bilateral lower-lip foreign body granuloma secondary to hyaluronic acid injection is presented. The granulomas were successfully resected and histopathology confirmed the diagnosis.
