The area under my eyes has resulted in diagonal 'pillow-like' swellings, which have remained after 5 weeks and look slightly discoloured. The surgeon advised more filler to counteract this, stating 1ml was a minimal amount and he had not seen this before, but I am petrified of making the situation worse. The swelling is very obvious but does not seem to be bruising. Other experiences I have read about are making me very frightened that this could be permanent. I on't know what to do.
I had 1ml of Juvaderm injected under the eyes (top of cheeks) and in the grooves between nose and cheeks. Advise?

If you post a photo, you'll receive better advice. Right now we have to guess as to what is happening. You need a second opinion in person from a board certified plastic surgeon in your area. I don't think more filler is the answer. It sounds like you have the Tyndall effect and may need hyaluronidase.
