My face looked gaunt, mostly near my under-eyes orbital and cheeks. I was 123 lbs at 5'6" and my face was showing it. I looked older than I am from it so I wanted to try the temporary solution of a filler. I wasn't sure I would like it and I knew it may wear off in 6 months or a bit more. It hurt a bit but he put lidocaine via small needle into the are that numbed it fast. What amazed me was how painless it was once that was done. He knew just where to put it to restore my volume near my nose and under eye area. When I walked out I looked better and younger immediately! I take care of my body so my face has to match as best it can. He was an expert on where to best give me proper volume and fill. Unfortunately after eight months I got a reaction to the filler as it dissolved and my eyes swelled up like giant bubble eyes over 3 weeks. It was awful. The doctor knew how to fix it instantly. He used an antidote and as soon as he injected me it went down. I never got another filler except sculptra after that which is a different composition. He was excellent though, great bedside, and a real sweetheart.

the volume has gone down some

the volume has gone way down now. I think I like it better actually since there is just enough scar tissue in my cheeks to not have that hollow gaunt look. I have a nodule in my left cheek but its way inside my tissue. it is getting smaller and is not visible.
