Can Restylane injections under eyes cause red swollen itchy eyes lingering into Day 12?

I am very concerned about what appears to be a bad reaction to this filler. Both eyes are inflamed, bloodshot and irritated. Also have tender red & hard nodules under eyes. I have only had Juvederm before on my lips and all went well, didn't really like the result but had no bad aftereffects, so this is puzzling. Contacted my very reputable Plastic surgeon who did the treatment and he insisted that I must be having an allergic reaction to something else.

Reconsult your physician

I would strongly suggest you to re-visit your plastic surgeon.  The presence of nodules strongly suggests excess Restylane injection.  Your other symptoms do sound like an allergic reaction of which you should be seen and treated for.
