Asymmetric fullness can also be a sign of an allergic reaction. This allergy can be to the medical ingredient itself or to the liquid gel in which the ingredient is suspended. Allergic reactions are rare when cosmetic surgeons do their due diligence to collect patients' medical records. That said, allergies are quite common and should be treated with care.
The reaction may occur immediately after the injection or three to four days after applying the filler. Other indications of an allergic reaction include tenderness and swelling. If asymmetric fullness occurs many days after the procedure, it occasionally indicates an infection. Infection should be treated with care and should be seen by a primary care physician.
Antibiotics are the most common course of action. Another cosmetic problem that can occur after a filler treatment is an unnatural appearance. This is the most common lip filler. Overly full lips are known as “duck lips” and most patients who end up with this result feel very embarrassed by their appearance.
Lip fillers should be injected sparingly to create a natural result. If you have had the filling done and you are not satisfied with the results, we recommend that you visit your original doctor first. They should be in the best position to know the details of the treatment and may notice that the problem occurs. Most complications of dermal fillers, such as redness, swelling, or bruising, are transient and resolve spontaneously within hours or days.
Every time the skin barrier is compromised, there is a risk of infection. This risk is very small in a clinical setting, with a professional using sterile equipment and FDA- or EC-approved products. Symptoms of infection include prolonged swelling, redness, pain, warmth, and abscesses. Before being released to the broader medical community, a filler brand must receive approval from the Federal Drug Administration (FDA) for its new product.
It is necessary for the cosmetic surgeon to be very careful when injecting the filler into the lips, forehead or other treatment areas. Instead, dermal filler injected into related areas of the mouth and jaw can improve the overall contour of the area, creating a more youthful appearance in the lower part of the face without directly changing the area of concern. The choice of the filling product should also be carefully selected, since there are different types and they vary in the amount of water they attract and, therefore, in the potential they have to provoke swelling. Fortunately, today, most dermal filler treatments are carried out with products based on hyaluronic acid.
Daniel Ezra is a leading oculoplastic surgeon with experience in the management of previous complications of lacrimal canal filling. Tear fillers are a non-surgical cosmetic treatment for those who want to correct tired eyes. If a skilled professional correctly performs tear fillers, the results should be subtle, but they make a noticeable difference in the appearance of tired eyes. This may be characteristic of a number of complications, although most often it is just a cosmetic problem that can be corrected by dissolving the filler with hyaluronidase.
So how do you know if your fillers are OK and that what you're experiencing is normal? And at what point should you seek help if you think things aren't going well? Then we invite patients to return to the clinic after several weeks to correctly insert the filler into the correct area. If necessary, fillers can be dissolved using the Hyalase product, which can break down hyaluronic acid. Rather than focusing on every wrinkle and line, fillers are sometimes best used to reverse aging by increasing volume to refresh key facial areas that contribute to your youthful appearance. .
