I'm afraid to get tear trough filler; how could I make sure this wouldn't happen to me?
Doctor Answers 3
Tear troughs, Juvederm and Restylane
1. Seeing a Board Certified Specialist who can handle all potential complications AND perform more complex procedures such as tear troughs.
2. Avoiding fillers if you have sinus or dental problems.
3. The injector taking extra care to be as sterile as possible during the procedure
4. Following post up instructions.
5. Using time tested products such as Restylane or Juvederm VOLBELLA (Juvederm comes in different forms depending on which part of the World you are in. In the UK, Asia and Australia Volbella is the Juvederm equivalent of Restylane).

Complications from fillers
While all medical procedures do carry risk, placement of dermal fillers is a common and very safe procedure with a low rate of complications. In order to minimize your risk of having a complication and maximize your likelihood of having a favorable outcome, I recommend that you only get treated by a well-trained and experienced dermatologist or plastic surgeon. Best of luck, Dr. Frucht.
Avoiding complications with fillers
Ultimately, you need to find a core cosmetic physician who is expert at doing aesthetics, discusses the risks and benefits with you clearly and follows the best standards of practice. Take a look at the American Society for Dermatologic Surgery website for more information.
I hope that answer was helpful. Best of luck!
