I had voluma injected into cheeks 15 days ago. I am still experiencing discomfort in right cheek. I have many different feelings: pressure on cheek bone, it feels like it's going into my eye, a tingling sensation down to my nose, a burning Feeling, wet or hot on the inside, when I smile it feels like razor blades on the inside of cheek. Taking 600 mg Motrin for past 6 days. Doctor said there is no infection and the outside looks good. Will dissolving it take the discomfort away?
Did my doctor hit a nerve after injecting Voluma or could the product just be sitting in the wrong place?

Post op nerve pain?
What you are describing does sound like post op nerve pain. If it doesn't resolve itself in the next couple of weeks, you may want to speak with your surgeon about dissolving the Voluma. So sorry that you are experiencing such discomfort.
Voluma and pain
Voluma is a great product for facial rejuvenation. However, the pain that you are experiencing probably is from a nerve being irritated. If it persists you may need to have the product dissolved. Best, Dr. Green

Voluma Injection Pain
Pain at more than two weeks out from injection is not expected. Filler may be pressing on the nerve in the region of injection. If pain is still persistent at this time the Voluma should likely be dissolved and a few weeks respite provided for nerve recovery.
