Uneven results from filler
one day is not really long enough to see what the results will be so give it another 5 days or so to see if it will even out. If not call your doctor and set up an apt to see what can be done
Thank you for your question. It is too early to see what your results will be. Swelling can last up to 2 weeks. I suggest contacting your treating physician if you are unhappy or concerned with your results. He/she can better determine what can be done to help you.
Swelling vs nerve damage after Radiesse
Very hard to give you an exact diagnosis without knowing how Radiesse was placed and the technique used. A physical examination is also needed. This maybe swelling, and if this was the case, it would have subsided by now. In rare situations a nerve can be hit, especially if the filler is placed too deeply. Your injector will know exactly what happened, and how to rectify it. All the best. Dr Davin Lim. Brisbane. Australia.

It is too soon to tell what your results will be. Swelling (even uneven swelling) can last up to 1-2 weeks. If you are unhappy with your final results there are options for treatment including steroid/5fu injections, skin tightening and lasers. Please see an expert. Best, Dr. Emer.
