Filler Migration Months Later

Filler cannot migrate months after injection unless it is silicone.  Please see your physician or consider a formal consultation with an expert.  Best, Dr. Emer.

Voluma treatments can be adjusted at a later date.

Hi Natasha.  Sometimes people have some swelling after a filler treatment.  This can cause discomfort, and it can hide little irregularities in the fillers.  Once the swelling goes down, it looks like some of the filler wore off, and the irregularites become more apparent.  

One of the wonderful things about Voluma and the other hyaluronic acid fillers is that they can be adjusted at any time.  Your doctor can smooth the lump in the office.  If necessary, the lump can be easily dissolved with a tiny injection.  There is no need to wait for the filler to wear off.  Your doctor will want to make these small adjustments for you, so that both of you are happy with the results.

Did my filler migrate?

I have never seen a case where I was convinced that the filler migrated. It generally stays where you place it. For your concerns, you need to go back to the person who did the injections and ask them.

Juvederm Voluma traveled under eye area.

Thank you for your question.  Based on the change of your under eye area, I would recommend you see your injector for an evaluation and determination of what this eye lump may be, as once injected Voluma does not readily migrate.
