Swelling after Bellafill, will my cheeks stay like a chipmunk?
It takes time to settle down from the injection. I would wait it out. The end result will be less that what you see right now. You have to wait for the swelling to subside and the collagen to be absorbed. The stimulate collagen should come in more naturally.

I hope that helps.
I am sorry to hear that you have not had a smooth experience with Bellafill. The amount that you had injected should create nice changes and nothing as dramatic as described so I have to assume that you may be having much more swelling than the average person experiences. Of course this should decrease substantially over time. You should also talk to your doctor about the overall time course of Bellafill. It does seem to diminish at a certain point and then the volume effects increase again as your body produces collagen. I have many very happy patients with Bellafill and nothing else delivers the same long lasting effects. Hopefully your doctor can counsel through this initial period and make sure that you are happy in the end.
