Bad juvederm experience - Cohasset, MA

Found a great deal on living social. One syringe...

Found a great deal on living social. One syringe for 325. Too good to be true. Now I've spent about 700 more to fix this mess that's on my face. Went to Dr. Christian Ford in Cohasset MA. He very nice at first. He tells me that he doesn't make anything off of this promotional syringe and pushes me to buy a second syringe. I've had juvederm injected a few times before and I've never needed 2 syringes. I don't want my face to look like a blowfish. As soon as a said that I was not interested in buying another syringe, his attitude quickly changed. He spend about 5 minutes injecting the entire syringe. He injected 2 spots near my nose and mostly all of it in 2 spots near the corners of my mouth. He never massaged any areas or had me take a look at what he had done so far. He never told me what to do for the aftercare. He pretty much had me on my way. 

 Once the swelling went down I noticed that he injected too much near the corners of my mouth. I looked like a walrus with these big blown up things near the mustache lines and near the corners of my mouth. I am in my early thirties and now I looked like I was 40. I called the office and he nothing but rude to me. Said it's normal and that the swelling would go down. I kept on telling him that he injected too much into the corners of my mouth. He told me that he knew what he was talking about and that it would go away. So, for the next few weeks I took pictures and not a lot changed. Swelling went down a bit, but still abnormally puffy in the 2 areas near my mouth. I could clearly tell even from the beginning that too much was injected in the spots near my mouth. When they say that the swelling will go down it true but it doesn't change the areas where they over injected and it certainly doesn't just disappear. So the areas that I noticed to be over puffy were still over puffy. I actually had to go to another place to correct his injection. It's been such a nightmare.

Horrible. He was rude, pushy and certainly doesn't have time to listen to what your saying. I would not go to this doctor.
