Juvederm affected by hit

I would not worry too much if you don't see or feel anything unusual. I would recommend booking a follow-up appointment with your injector in 1-2 weeks just in case, though.

Juvederm for the cheeks

There was probably no harm done to your filler but you may have some additional swelling for a while.  Wait 2 weeks and if you think the filler has shifted, please see your injector.

Dealing with Position Change of Filler

Thank you for your question. Excessive and deep massaging or product migration may change the position of the filler within 2 weeks of the treatment. Abrupt blunt trauma likely shouldn't impact the positioning of the product. I hope this helps.

Hit in the cheek after having treatment with filler

Hello, and sorry to hear about your accident. It is not likely this affected your result, but it would not hurt to contact your physician and let him or her know. They will be able to fix any asymmetries that may have occurred from the door hitting your cheek. Thank you and I hope this helps!

Trauma to cheek after dermal filler, will this change my outcome?

I agree with Dr Barankin, there is probably no problem but it's a good idea to be rechecked if you are not swollen or bruised. Otherwise, you may need to wait until any swelling has resolved to see if there is any asymmetry to correct.

Getting hit in cheek after filler injection

You are not likely to have too many problems, but just to be safe, I would return to the injecting physician to assess the symmetry and balance. The filler, if it is a hyaluronic acid like juvederm or restylane, is still moldable for several days after injection, so don't worry. Dr. Benjamin Barankin, Toronto Dermatology Centre.
