Can Filler Migration Occur Under the Eyes and to the Cheeks?

Filler migration is the movement of a dermal filler from the injection site to another area of the body. While it is possible for fillers to migrate, this side effect is extremely rare and can be avoided by selecting a qualified injector. The Juvederm migration is exactly what it seems. In rare cases, facial fillers such as Juvederm may migrate to another site on the face a few days after the injection.

This occurs when the filler moves before it has fully adhered to the facial tissue. Filler migration is defined as the process of spreading or “migrating” the dermal filler to another area beyond the injection site. While migration is mostly spoken in terms of lip fillers, it can also occur anywhere the filler is injected, including the lacrimal canal, jawline, and cheeks. There is a lot of confusion about what happens with fillers. They may migrate, but only relatively soon after the injection.

After that, they are relatively stable and dissolve over time once the body recognizes them. However, depending on many factors, part of the filler (which, with hyaluronic acid fillers, is the precursor of collagen) becomes collagen and is permanent. If the same area is injected on different occasions, it fills the area more and less filler has to be used to achieve the same result. No enhancement is obtained in places where there has been no filling. I will occasionally remove an area, but with the same amount I used the first time, I will also treat a new area. It is always better to choose according to the experience and knowledge of the professional than the filling itself and also the price.

Turns out, backfill migration isn't as frequent or as significant as it seems on social media platforms. Facial filler migration is a term that refers to the process by which a facial filler is injected into one place, but moved or “migrated” to another. The study presented was a retrospective review of four patients who underwent an injection of HA filler in the face with subsequent orbital complications. In some very rare cases, migration of the filler may be due to another, unrelated disease in the patient's body. However, in rare cases of facial filler migration, it's best to have a highly trained injector. It should be emphasized that fillers do not migrate from one area of the body to another.

First of all, migration can occur if a customer does not choose an experienced injector who knows how to properly administer fillers. Even in extremely rare cases where your fillers migrate, there will be no serious consequences. Because orbital complications can occur long after injection and because injection sites are remote from complication sites, associations between them may not be immediately identified. In terms of lips, if too much product has been placed, it will have nowhere to go except outside of lip edges. On average, fillers such as Juvéderm and Restylane will naturally be metabolized by the body between six months and a year, but traces can remain for up to two years. Your best protection against complications from fillers is to conduct thorough research before choosing a doctor. Because migration of fillers is so rare, it's sometimes impossible for doctors to determine a cause when it does occur.
