Granulomas? Swelling? Juvederm?
Your first step would be to inject Vitrase and see if the bumps go down. If they do not, then continue with the allergy analysis as this can sometimes cause prolonged swelling. Finally, if you rule both of these out, it's time for surgery to revise the shape of the under eye (lower blepharoplasty). Good luck.
A hyaluronidase injection may help to dissolve any product that could be left over.
Continue with treatment for allergies and continue to consider any other possibilities for swelling.
Swelling after juvederm + infection
- You had 2 lower lid operations, a Juverderm injection and 9 months later an infection that led to chronic lower lid swelling.
- It seems likely that the infection set off an immune reaction, possibly to the Juvederm.
- The reaction could be in the skin, the muscle of the lid or fat around the eye.
- See a Board Certified Ophthalmologist or Plastic Surgeon. You may need an ultrasound or even MRI to see what is going on anatomically and blood tests to be sure your thyroid function is normal.
- A careful injection of juvederm-dissolving enzyme or of steroid may help if studies suggest it is granuloma or residual Juvederm.
