Still swollen after 1/2 syringe of Belotero 5 months ago

You appear to have a "lump" of product which was probably placed incorrectly.  You can either have it dissolved or add more product to blend it. It appears you could use more product in the hollow area, but don't be afraid of Hyaluronidase.  If it is diluted and injected very sparingly in the lump and massaged, it will go down and smooth out. Either way you will need to see your provider or someone with experience for the best outcome.
