Hello i had my cheek done yesterday with deep filler 2 ml each. this morning my face is so swollen underneath my right eyes is broused and my cheek feels hot. is it normal


There is usually a degree of swelling, bruising, heat and discomfort. However, it is not normal for it to be quite severe, and when a normal degree of these symptoms becomes abnormal can only be determined by your physician. Therefore, I would suggest you go back to your doctor and show them the result to see if there is anything for you to worry about.
