Overcorrection of Juvederm Around Eye's That I Ended Up Correcting - Saint George, UT

I was living in Nevada but I went to a plastic surgeon in Utah for some injectables and a Temporal Lift. I asked the Doctor to inject the Juvederm mostly around the bridge of my nose next to my eye's where I had some wrinkles from sun damage. A week later after the bruises healed it looked like I had inserted strings in the area he injected. I had read about a protein that doctors can inject to break up the material but I was sceptical about the safety of the protein so I took a sewing needle into my own hands and was pleasently surprised to find the liquid squirted out when I punctured just the top layer of skin where the Juvederm was. It was like the skin was being cushion by the plumping and so the needle going in didn't hurt. I sculped the area's the way I wanted them by just pricking the area and then squeezing it to release the liquid and then I would wait a couple days to see if I needed to do more. I also didn't want release to much of the substance all at once because I don't know the safety issues of these injectables and the immune system having to deal with a large amount all at once even though most of it came out on my tissue
I had to wait a month just to get a consultation but his prices on injectables was much lower than doctors close to home. He did a great job with the Temporal Lift I had requested and with other injectable area's but he didn't see me the following day and seemed rather uninterested in my well being.
