Black-eye from Radiesse Injection

Had Radiesse injected under my eyes in mid Sept 2009. I looked very tired and had a lot of fat loss in this region due to extreme weight loss from gastric bypass. I love the outcome from the dermal fillers except for the black-eye.

The pain from the injectin under my left eye was far worse than my right. Immediately thereafter, I had a black-eye under my left eye. Dermatologist advised I ice pack it for a couple days and it would go away.

It is now mid Dec 2009 & I still have a black eye. It is very noticeable; I constantly get asked "what happened" to me. I have been to three doctors and they all refer me back to the doctor that performed the procedure. I have seen the dr. that injected the dermal filler. The first time I saw him, he said to put Arnica cream for a couple weeks; which I did. The black-eye did not go away. I went back & now the doctor says it's just a shadow, my skin is very thin in that area and suggest he put Juvederm to correct it.

I don't know what to do. No other doctor will touch me & refer me back to the dermatologist that performed the injection.

The dermatologist that injected the Radiesse; which caused the black-eye wants to correct it with more dermal filler. No other doctor will treat me; they refer me back to the original doctorn. I don't know what to do or who to turn to? Please help me!

This ended up to be a hallow under my eye from loss of fat due to weight-loss. I have returned to the doc many times thereafter and am very satisfied with his work. Adding Juvederm to this area truly corrected the problem and I am very much pleased.
