I had 1.5mls of perlane injected into each of my cheeks. The strange thing is now under my eyes looks very puffy. The injection was 3 days ago. I am scared I was overfilled. Will this dissipate as the product gets absorbed in the next six months or is it simply swelling?

Perlane in Cheeks
It is difficult to make a diagnosis over the internet but in general 1.5 ccs of Perlane divided in two doses for bilateral cheeks, should not make you overdone or overfilled.
If the injection went into the lower lid, the lower lid can be swollen and overfilled. I am assuming the injection was over the malar bone or cheek bone.
Swelling is always a possibility depending on the individual however I don't see very much swelling after perlane injections. And yes if there is swelling, it will resolve. Ice and Ibuprophen may help.
