Injection gone wrong

Hello Injection Gone Wrong,

Based on your picture it could be several things.  Although a picture is worth a thousand words a physical exam and getting more information is the key.  If injected recently it could be an allergic reaction.  If injected awhile ago it could be a granuloma.  If injected too close to the surface that could be visibility of the product.  The product injected also matters as that will affect the treatment options and can help determine what is going on.  Subcision is a technique that is used for scars that are stuck down to free them.  This is not what you would need under any circumstances. 

The best thing would be to follow up with a board certified facial plastic surgeon, general plastic surgeon, or dermatologist.  This specialist could then obtain the needed information to properly diagnose what is going on and then provide treatment options accordingly.

I hope this helps and good luck.

Large Bump Beneath the Skin

Thank you for the question and photos.
Without knowing more about what was injected, where it was injected and when it was injected it is not possible to give advice. Please return to your doctor for follow up evaluation soon. If needed, get a second opinion from another expert in your area. Good luck.

Lump Under Skin After Fillers

This area needs to be investigated by a well trained cosmetic dermatologist.  What was injected?  How was it injected?  A formal consultation is needed to determine the best next step.  Dr. Emer.

There is clearly something wrong but I cannot give any general advice about knowing what was injected there. Is this a filler or implant? Silicone. Please post a followup or message me. I hope this information is helpful for you.
