I Am 3 Months Post Restylane Injections and All of a Sudden Have Lump over Both Periorbital Sites?

I have lumps under both my eyes (periorbital) where I got restylane injections. I got it done over 3 months ago! It actually hurts! I have had this done before over a period of 2 yrs. Two weeks ago it was only my left eye, then I awoke yesterday with it under the right eye. What the heck is going on?

Lump after filler

You should see your doctor as it is not normal to have new painful lumps 3 months after injection. Also consider seeing an oculoplastic specialist.

Possible infection

Although intensely rare an infection can occur even months later, like cellulitis. If it is this, it can be treated with a course of antibiotics but you need to be checked out by a physician sooner rather than later.

Restylane and Lumps

It's not common to suddenly develop lumps post-Restylane treatment. You should follow up with your provider to discuss what may or may not be going on and whether or not it's related to the product.

Late/Delayed Lumps Peri-Orbitally 3 Months After Restylane Injections

Hi Milli,

I have seen this once before in a patient who developed hard bumps in the lower lid eye hollows months after her Restylane injections that had looked great during that time.  We injected them with hyaluronidase and they resolved within a week.  We do not know why this rare delayed reaction occurs, it may be that during the injection, the needle deposited some Restylane under the peri-ostium (the lining of the bone).  See your injecting physician for evaluation. Good luck and be well.
