How long will it take before overfilled tear trough looks normal ..and not so overfilled anymore? (filled with restylane)

  • 9 months ago

I had restylane put in my tear troughs for the very first time 3 months ago... it all went really well and 1 month after this appointment I went back to add a little bit more as they were still slightly hollow. I absolutely love my right eye but he overfilled the left one and now its puffy, lumpy and well, to cut a long story short: horrible! Can any of you out there tell me how long will it take for the overfilled eye to start to look better...and not so overfilled? I am beside myself! I don't want to go out and feel so down! I done this to feel better about myself and feel 10 times worse now! I don't want to have it dissolved with Hyaluronidase as I have read so many horror stories about this! I would really appreciate someone who has gone through the same experience helping me out here! I am new to all of this and really don't know what to expect! I feel so stupid! I'm telling everyone I have had a bad reaction to an eye cream..anything but tell the truth!! Thank you so much in advance!

Hi there, Hyaluronidase would help correct the over corrected eye and also remove some of your own natural ha, but I read one of the doctor's responses that your body restores the natural HA after 2 weeks, so initially it may look worse but then it will begin to look better. Restylane lasts for a year, so it can take that length of time to restore back to normal, sometimes longer. I had juvederm volbella done which lasts longer, but also takes longer to restore if it has been overfilled. I would encourage you to speak to your injector about your concerns and they may be able to advice you, and perhaps offer you a really good option for correction. It may help to calm the fear and help dispel the discouragement you are experiencing.
