I would need to review your photos. If there is clumping of product then it should be addressed. Please find a Plastic Surgeon near you using the Smart Beauty Guide.
I went to a doctor for my lower face and had 5 injections of restylane lyft, 1 of silk and 1 bolotero. What happened? (photo)

You certainly did have a lot of product. It would be better to see before and after photos to see the difference. Fillers only add volume and do not resurface sun damaged skin or tighten loose skin from aging. I suggest you discuss your concerns with your injector and consider a consult with a board certified plastic surgeon about surgery options.

Dermal fillers and lax skin
It is hard to give a full opinion just by looking at one picture. If we had a before and after photo, it would be easier to determine what happened. Sometimes dermal fillers do not work well with lax skin and some other treatments and procedures are recommended such as lasers and face-neck lifts. I would recommend you going back to your provider or finding a new provider so they can examine your case and see what they can do for you in the future. Best of luck

Lower face filler
Hello. I would have recommended Radiesse or Sculptra in this lower face area. The hyaluronic acid fillers like Belotero and Restylane do not have the longevity in this area or the volumizing effect. I cannot tell well from your photo, but the lower lateral face (and jaw line) can also be injected with Sculptra or Radiesse to help soften the marionette lines and soften jowls. I would have used the Belotero in the lips and fine lines around the mouth only. Thank you for your question. Best, Andrea Dempsey MD
Hi Ann, could you please post a couple more pictures, including your before pictures? Usually adding filler to the lower face for people who are very thin and have a lot of skin laxity is not great. If you want a non-surgical option I would recommend Sculptra.
Facelift Better for Sagging Skin ; Alternatives are Thermage/Ultherapy, ThermiRF, CO2 Laser Resurfacing, Intensif RF
like your skin is very lax and therefore will not do well with a
liquid facelift. you may need skin tightening procedures, lasers, or a neck/face lift. Please see an expert. Best, Dr. Emer.
