Hi - about 7 months ago I was a model for a visiting Italian doctor, who is highly respected in this field. I was injected with Juvederm for my marionette lines, but immediately noticed swelling on either side of my mouth (the lines were not filled either!) which I massaged over a week, but to no avail. They are still there, and make me look jowly (they throw shadows onto my skin). I was offered the enzyme to remove it, but was also warned that it can make the face saggy and it will require more filler to make good, which could result in a mess. So I am sitting it out, waiting for it to dissolve. My worry is that it is scar tissue, and will never disappear. What do you advise?
Thanks so much!
My apologies that this took so long to answer! In general, if there’s too much Juvederm, there is too much! Have it dissolved. Your face will go back to where it was and that won’t cause any more sagging than you had to begin with. Here is more information about common Juvederm Mistakes and hyaluronidase. Dr. I
