Hi fallen, Sorry to hear about your unsatisfactory experience with the non-surgical nose job. It will take some time for the Radiesse to absorb and go away. Hopefully the exacerbation of your lower eye lid bags is very temporary and the result of edema or swelling from the recent injections. Sleep with your head elevated above your heart. Bromelene (pineapple extract) or fresh pineapple have helped decrease swelling in many patients. Your concerns can better be addressed after examination...
Tissue fillers in the nose cause such little reaction its difficult to explain your observations. We can only hope your eyes will return to their previous appearance with time.I wouldn't suggest any intervention until all the tissue filler has thought to be reabsorbed.
Swelling in the area around the eyes can occur after procedures to the nose. In many cases with time this swelling will resolve. In fairer skinned individuals you may also get some darken or change in pigmentation around the eyes, sometimes this may persist for a long time.
Dear Fallenangel, We are not big advocates of non surgical rhinoplasty, but I'm hard pressed to find a reason why Radiesse in the nose would have caused swelling under the eyes. Some fillers like Restylane and Juvederm act by drawing water into the area and so if one of those fillers were used we could guess that this may be the cause. Either way, most of the increase in the bags under the eyes is likely swelling- any chance you had any filler placed under the eyes? Since it sounds like you...
