Is it too late to fix under eye edema?
Byon 21 Apr 2011
I had sculptra about a week ago. I wish I had read the postings on this website before making this dangerous decision. It's understandable that my face would be bruised and swollen from this procedure, but three days ago, the area on the top of my left cheek began to swell with edema. I went into the PS office yesterday with my concerns and was told it was normal for the amount of bruising I have. I am very concerned, though that the left side of my face feels fuller and looks fuller than the right side. At the time of the procedure I got the impression more was being put into that side of my face.
After reading these forums, I now suspect I was overfilled on that side and possibly too close to my eye. How many vials should be used in the first Sculptra treatment? It seemed like she had endless syringes to poke into my face. My question is...will the edema go down, as I have been assured? Would it be a good idea to have saline injected there and in those other slightly fuller areas to ward off the possibility of future nodules? I don't plan to go in for another other sculptra sessions...but what if it fills in unevenly? How can fix it without resorting to sculptra again? I am so upset. I keep having anxiety attacks about this. Can't sleep...worry constantly that I have been ruined for life. Any suggestions?
