I developed lymphedema after dermal fillers and hyaluronidase. Will this prevent reabsorption of juvederm/sculptra? (photo)

I've had intermittent swelling for two years. Do any doctors specialize in lymphedema in fl? I am under bmi but now have the face of an obese woman

Posted photo DOES NOT show lymphedema... Plus after 2 years ALL the HA has been metabolized.. Seek IN PERSON opinions....
It is difficult to see even mild edema in your photo. I can see a slight erythematous (pink/red) papule (s). I recommend you see a dermatologist in person to evaluate what is happening on your chin/face. It is possible you had a granulomatous reaction or scar from the filler which can cause edema by compressing a small vein. Treatment would be more hyaluronidase and a little steroid. If done too aggressively you can get atrophy or too much thinning of the skin, so I recommend an experienced dermatologist.
