Question:

Hi, 3 weeks ago I had dermal fillers in the hollows of my eyes (not at your clinic) and I’m concerned that it was not done correctly as I still have small lumps, they are uneven and they eye area appears darker. I was hoping to have an appointment with you to assess and fix if required. Thank you, I appreciate your advice. 

Answer:

 This is a common problem we see arise from other clinics. The skin around the eyes is particularly thin, and the fillers used there tend to attract water a few days later. What tends to happen is that they treatment looks good immediately, and a few days later, it appears lumpy or puffy.

 

We use a specialised technique to help reduce lumps and reduce bruising/swelling.

 You are welcome to come in to make an appointment for our doctors to dissolve the previous filler and redo the treatment for you.
