Changes with aging
Photos that are taken at close range distort the image and do not provide an adequate picture to assess. Botox and fillers do not cause the symptoms you are having. I would recommend seeing your primary care physician and an ophthalmologist to address the visual symptoms and headaches first. At some point in the aging process, fillers and Botox may not give enough lift and wrinkle reduction - other options may be better for you. Please see your PCP and eye doctor first. Best regards.
Fillers and Botox
Hi there Laura, I agree with you the filler does look like it stretched the difference between your nose and upper lip, however your pics on the left and right look very different from each other, we would need to see a picture with the same facial expression as the pic on the right, but right before your procedure. The symptoms of headaches and bad vision are not common side effects of fillers and botox, I would go to your original injector to discuss, perhaps there is another underlying cause for your symptoms.
Post fillers and botox
Thank you for your question. You need to see your practitioner who performed your injections. When HA fillers and botox are absorbed, the skin returns to normal, it does not get stretched out. Additionally they do not cause the symptoms you are talking about. Your before and after pictures are too different to really get an accurate idea of the results, but in the post op you do appear to have a significant amount of volume loss. Return to your injector and let them take a look.

Not happy with fillers and botox
I'm sorry you're disappointed with your recent injectables. From your pics, it looks like you have gone through the classic "deflation" of facial tissue since 2014. This is very common. I believe setting expectations properly is the key to successful cosmetic surgery. Injectables are a terrific adjunct to any practice, but they can only do so much. In the end, surgery is what is required to truly correct the signs of aging. Based on your photos, it looks like you need an upper blepharoplasty with (or without) a brow lift. Injectables may help add volume to your cheeks and nasolabial folds, but a facelift would be best. I recommend returning to your plastic surgeon to discuss these options. I wish you the best!
