Distortion after filler

I'm sorry but the photos and description are insufficient to answer your question.  Generically speaking,  hyaluronic acid filler is dissolved by hyaluronidase enzyme.  I am always very conservative when I use the enzyme and sometimes have to do it twice.  (Better to under correct than overshoot!)  Keep in mind that there are other causes for facial distortion such as swelling, hematoma, and scar tissue that might be causing the problem.
