Clare-

It is extremely difficult to give you a reasonable opinion without photos, examination, and knowing the type of filler.  You and your surgeon will need to carefully consider the pros and cons of adding filler to the other side vs. dissolving the existing filler.  There may be some very valid reasons to add to the other side (other than profit for your surgeon).   You should consider seeing another surgeon for a second opinion.  It is unfortunate that you have become put off toward filler in the future because of this one bad experience.  Good luck.
