I had juvaderm xc in April. I contacted this forum regarding untoward effects esp inner cheek swelling, puffiness and numbness. after reading the excellent opinions of many plastic surgeons there, i now realize that my injections were too deep,and too much volume put in one side. causing a lopsided look and inner cheek swelling 3 months later.
there is a remedy available of another injection, but the juvaderm will also resolve itself in time. this has given me a great deal of peace of mind for which I am very grateful.
although I am an RN and I researched this well,I found the treatment disappointing and I had post op problems which caused me ongoing stress and concern. I even consulted an oral surgeon to make sure I had nothing untoward happening in my mouth. now that i know what the cause is, i can live with it and wait until it resolves. I am glad there were doctors there with the answers I needed. thank you
