I had restlyane injected to solve a minor tear trough problem. I had every faith in the practitioner and was shown before and after pictures of previous patients having had the same procedure. However 11 days on and I am left with a swelling under my right eye which looks makes my cheek look indented and like I've been punched in certain light. I am beside myself with worry.
My doctor saw me 2 days ago and assured me that is was still swelling due to the injection site. However I am terrified that I will be stuck like this as the swelling does not seem to have changed over the last few days.I understand that if necessary that the restylane can be dissolved but am concerned that in doing this my own tissue could be damaged permanenly? I would be grateful of any advise as to whether this is possible or if a prolonged swelling in this area is common. I just wish I'd left them alone.
