Black and Blue Under the Eyes After Bellafill
I am sorry that you are having this problem. If you got a lot of bruising at the time of your injection then the dark color should slowly dissipate over the next few weeks although I have seen it last 3 to 6 months. The photos you sent show that you still have some tear trough that will cast a shadow in this area and certainly not help the problem. I would recommend being patient and seeing what transpires over the next 3 months.
I hope that helps.
Thank you for your question. It seems that the area underneath your eyes has reacted differently than the cheek area around the smile lines. You may be more susceptible for bruising. How has the bruising progressed or subsided since your last saw your surgeon? Also, what is the outcome of the cheek area? Answers to these questions will be helpful for your surgeon to determine how best to treat the continued puffiness and bruising. Always consult with a board certified facial plastic surgeon.
