How much filler is too much for one treatment session.
LIMIT SYRINGES OR VIALS DONE IN ONE SESSION TO 1-3 TOTAL unless you know the doctor/nurse well and have a high level of trust.
Here’s why it’s always a good idea to work slowly. When a doctor or nurse is injecting filler, there is an artistic element to it. And……when facial skin/tissue is being injected it starts to swell and get puffy which makes it hard to accurately place the filler unless the injector is very skilled. Also, we all have facial asymmetries that excellent doctors/nurses will compensate for as they inject.
Bottom line: If you limit each treatment session (unless you’ve worked with the doctor for years) to 2-3 syringes or vials, the quality and accuracy of the placement will be much better.
On this one, you’ll need to negotiate this with your doctor. Try a respectful, but persistent approach focusing on what you were told versus what happened. You may need to put it in a letter but avoid threats and keep the tone factual.
Hope this helps, Dr. I
