Bag under eye following Voluma
Unfortunately most of the reported complication from fillers occur around the eyes because of the very thin tissue resulting in visibility, and swelling. I have a little of this going on with my left eye right now too, but I like the overall effects of the Voluma. I push the swelling out in the morning by holding pressure with my finger before putting on my make up, and that helps.
It is definitely worth trying more Vitrase since it did work before. The practice that treated you may also have a non invasive skin tightening device that they might be able to offer you on that side until it resolves.

Voluma and Eyes
It would appear from your photo that the Voluma may be too superficial. I would consult a board certified dermatologist to consider Vitrase to dissolve it. I would prefer Belotero or Restylane under the eyes. Best, Dr. Green

I would recommend returning to your dermatologist or plastic surgeon to evaluate further injection of hyaluronidase (#Wydase, #Vitrase, #Hylenex). Please consider sleeping with your head elevated to decrease your overnight under eye swelling until you return to your physician.
Best of luck,
