I went to 2 dermatologists ( a dermatologist injected the artefill) and 2 plastic surgeons.The Derm who put the Artefill in wanted to inject Kenalog around my eyes but I refused so he was finished with me.Had lower blephroplasty a week ago and all the artefill around my eyes are gone.As he was removong the artefill ( which he said had set up like concrete) I asked to see a piece as he was removing it and it was hard and white looking.One week post op today, stitches are gone but some swelling and discoloration still remain.I think I will be VERY pleased when I am healed.My advise is to find a good PS and discuss this with him.Paid less to get it removed, lower bleph and mid face lift than I paid for all my artefil!.Will not ever go back to the dermotologist but will go to PS for any thing else I need. Good luck to all of you!!

I received Artefill injections 3 months ago and am still dealing with these lumps under my eyes. I live in NYC and don't know WHO I should go to to treat my situation. I am desperate and just don't know who to trust. Can anyone help?
