Water retention above the tear trough after fillers

Puffiness under eyes after Restylane
--patients who have puffy eyes due to water retention (not fat); ie the kind of puffiness that you can i dent with your finer, that is worst in the morning and gets.better during the day, that is worse with a high-salt diet
--patients who have had lower eyelid surgery
--patients who have a lot of filler injected in one day
--patients who have had botox or other BTX-A injected under the eyes ( when you relax the periorbital sling of muscle there, it does not pump the accumulated fluid out through the lymphatics as effectively when you smile).
You might want to dissolve a tiny bit of the Restylane. But before reversing it, why don't you try drinking a lot more water, reducing salt in your diet, and applying a potent green tea cream (like Replenix) several times daily.
You could try Beletero next time, which might be slightly less likely to do this, and have smaller amounts injected.
