I have been told I am allergic to Restylane. What other options do I have for a facial filler?

An allergy to hyaluronic acid is highly unlikely.
I would consider a second opinion to ensure you are allergic.
All the Best.
Allergy to Restylane
I recommend you obtain a second opinion consultation from a well experienced, Board Certified Plastic Surgeon. If there remain concerns of Restylane allergy, an allergist may provide confirmation of this. If your lumps were technique related, he /she would be able to offer other technique options or if necessary, other filler options so such a lump doesn't develop again.
I hope this was helpful.
