Is It Normal to Feel Pressure Around Eyes After Filler Injection?

I had filler injected to my undereye area due to undereye hollow 2 days ago. Is it normal to feel pressure around the eyes along with mild headache? I also can feel the filler, especially the left eye, when I move or roll my eyes. I feel that the doctor injected a little more filler than he should, as I can see the filler slightly bulging, but not noticeable. Maybe too close to the eyeballs?? Any advice would help.

Filler around the eyes

WIthout being your injector I can not assume where exactly it was injected and why you are feeling the way you do. Patients do get some swelling. Best to see your injector.

Eye symptoms after a filler

Please call your doctor -  I hope that you were injected by a physician- either a dermatologist or a plastic surgeon- because they should promptly examine you and manage your care.

It is normal to experience a little swelling post infraorbital injections, however this is a delicate area and this area should not be over-injected to avoid swelling or edema- that can last several months to years if too much product is used

Filler to eye

What filler was injected? How much? With facial movement, sometimes you can feel product or difference in movement due to an enhancement; however, it should not be painful or irritating.
