Sudden lumps and swelling after filler. Any suggestions?
Thank you for your question and photos. I think that your doctor is on the right track thinking that you are suffering from an infection or an allergy. I would certainly recommend that you have the Juvederm "erased" by the injection of hyaluronidase while you are being treated. The late appearance of these symptoms is more indicative of an infectious cause than allergy. The antibiotic sill help, but you need to have the Juvederm removed. If you decide to try again with a filler, discuss what happened with your injector (choose an experienced board certified plastic surgeon, facial plastic surgeon or dermatologist) who will likely try a test dose before committing to a full filler correction. Good luck. Let us know what happens and share your story.

It is possible that these lumps are an infection or an allergic reaction. I would definitely return to your treating physician for examination. Best, Dr. Green
