Swollen red cheek after sculptra
It looks like you may have a granulomatous reaction (low grade shouldering infection) to the sculptra in your right cheek. The implant surgery probably worsened the problem. I would recommend seeing a plastic surgeon familiar with sculptra. The treatment consists of a combination of antibiotics.
Injected myself with saline to dissolve Sculptra?
I don't know what your qualifications are, but to inject yourself with saline to dissolve Sculptra is nonsense. Nothing can dissolve Sculptra, not even hyaluronidase. Right now, there might be an infection because of poor sterile technique or from your prior infection still lingering. I think you need to seek someone much more experienced in this area in the next day. I have not heard of a lump persisting over 8 years from Sculptra and therefore not convinced it was Sculptra.
