Restylane SubQ in the Cheekbone Area - Brisbane, Australia

Hi, I had restylane injections yesterday to fill...

Hi, I had restylane injections yesterday to fill lines on my upper lip which I have also had done previously (about 10 years ago.) This time I spoke to the doctor about the loss of fullness in my cheeks. She recommended restylane SubQ injections on my cheekbone area to lift the area up.

My skin wasn't really sagging too much but she felt this would give more fullness. I now have these massive cheekbones prodtruding out and it has changed the shape of my face considerably. I did tell her before the treatment I was happy with the shape of my face, I just wanted to look 'fresher'. The area of the cheek injections is still very sore.

I wish I hadn't had it done. I thought it was just going to fill the hollowing in my cheek area, maybe plump it up more.(which wasn't that bad anyway) but instead I have these huge cheekbones. I look skeletal now. I actually think it has made the hollows worse. And it makes my eyes look sunken. I am not happy. I hope it is just swelling but when I asked this after the treatment she said it wasn't swelling, but just my mind telling me they looked too big because of the anesthetic...? I told her I hated how it looked and she said to wait until the local anesthetic wore off and I could think clearly. I am really upset...

Is it possible that this is still swelling (there is no redness) or is this is the final result? Also if this is the final result will a reversal be even and successful. I am really panicing... I cried all the way home after the treatment. I feel like I am being punished for being so vain! My husband arrives home this afternoon and I know he will not be happy.

Initially I freaked out, I thought it was too overdone, but after about 10-14 days I LOVED it.. I think maybe I took a little longer than most for the swelling to go down, but once it had 'settled' it was fantastic.. I can honestly say that I think I am still seeing the benefits of this treatment, I know they say it only lasts approx 3 months but mine is a lot longer. I have a few more lines around my lips that I will definately have treated with restylane again..

Hello there. If you haven't already done so because of the date of your post, I would ask to get the filler dissolved with Hydase (not sure if I am spelling it correctly). The swelling should have gone down by now and if it still looks terrible then I would go and have it dissolved. I had it done under my eyes and hated it and went and had the Hydase injected and it was gone in 24-48 hours. Good luck!
