I had an Artefill injection 14 months ago,1 syringe injected in right & left cheek and left NF. About 10 days ago I started feeling lumps form. Right now they are palpapble but not visible. Is it likely that they will worsen to become visible? Is it possible to determine if it is a granuloma or encasement and is there a difference? Is there anything to try to minimize growth? I'm only 39 and very frightened by the results of the Artefill, does anyone have experience with surgical removal?
Will Palpable Lumps from Artefill Worsen to Become Visible?
