Droopy Lower Eyelid After Voluma
It is not uncommon to see rounding of the lateral (temporal) portion of the lower eyelid in patients of all ages. This can occur because of anatomic considerations such as a relative prominence of the globe (eyeball) or because of a downward sloping eye shape (lateral canthal dystopia). It can also occur with loss/atrophy of the deep under-eye fat with age. In your case, either the loss of supporting fat or the decline of your Voluma could account for the small difference between the before and after photos. Nerve damage is extremely unlikely and can be excluded from consideration with a simple examination. The simplest solution to the problem may be to inject filler to lift and support the lateral portion of the eyelid. Hope this helps.
See Board Certified Dermatologist to Discuss Voluma
I would suggest having a consultation with a board-certified dermatologist or plastic surgeon – share your concerns, go over what has happened and what is happening, and see what kind of treatment options would work best for you.
Schedule a consultation with a board certified plastic surgeon to be assessed.

Effects of Voluma
So...its only been two years you say... well look at the pictures more closely. In the before pictures you are taking the shot from an elevated position...your eyes are looking up. This changes the way your eyes look and makes the tilt of your eyes appear to be more than it probably was at the time. Also...you have black eye liner on in the before pictures...another thing that will cause the appearance to differ. I would encourage you to find a picture of yourself before voluma with no make up on looking strait ahead and see if the difference is as noticeable.
It may not be...but it just might.
