Stay AWay Unless You Are 100% Confident That Your Dr Knows What He is Doing - New York, NY

i had voluma 2 minths ago, immediately, i could tell that the filler was not placed right. Dr wanted to improve minimal, barely visible asymmetry and he injected ut all in the buccal hollow on the right side and some on my chin. well my chin is distorted and the cheek hollow is full . i basically have two different faces! i wAited two weeks, (sorry gals, if something feels wrong on the second day, something is definitely wrong!!!). my nightmare has ben going on for 2 months, my confidence has plummeted and i dont want to look in the mirror. in selfies my face is extremely distorted and i am all bumpy. voluma is only meant for the cheeks for a reason, too thick for other areas!!! anyway, it makes me retain a lot of water: i tried to dissolve it 4 times and i always go back to square one. i checked lot number w. allergan and it is definitely the real stuff. how many rounds of hyaluronidase, how many days sitting at home bc im too embarrassed to go out before i get this evil out?
Stay away from voluma especially if you tend to retain water. it is nothing like restylane lift or juvederm ultra. you can use regula fillers: they last longer than they say, juvederm lasts a good and a half years and voluma 3+ years. moreover, drs make it sound like it is so eay to dissolve and it is not: you will go through a rollercoaster of frustration, disappointment and crying when you think something is dissolving and then the fullness comes right back! not worth the risk, unless you really really know how good your dr is. Otherwise, dont risk it. Board certified plastic surgeon means nothing: they either can do it or they cant. Dont let titles fool you and resist the allure of something that can last years. your dace will be disorted for a long time too, if the results are bad.

voluma nightmare

i had 12 attempts at dissolving this nightmare. one time a dermatologist used pure vitrase, 400 units and it did not work! my thing is to avoid voluma unless you tried other fillers before with the same doctor. This thing is impossible to didsolve. also try to undertreat and only go for one syringe, yiu can always add more. do not let anyone use voluma off labelon yiu. i think this is what makes it particularly hard to dissolve. voluma once injected becomes like cartilage bc it is supposed to act kike an implant. if your dr wants to inject it on marionette lines, folds, under the yes RUN for your life! it means thy do not know the product at all! i just want to prevent this from happening to anyone else. If you are in NY and condidering voluma message me so that you can avoid making my mistake. it is important that you put your face and your health into the right hands.
rather not say

i dont think he has aesthetic eye when ut come to fillers
