Too much Voluma in the upper cheek area causing problems!
Yikes – that sounds very unpleasant! I’m assuming that the “sausage” problem is clearly visible when you smile and that the doctors can see it also. Here are some things that may help and to think about:
- Did you show the problem to the dermatologist who placed the Voluma? I do know that sometimes when confidence is lost, you may not want to go back;
- Since Voluma may last up to two years, at 7 months it may only be about 30ish% gone. I’m wondering why none of the doctors you saw suggested reducing the volume there with an enzyme – hyaluronidase??? Most experienced board certified derms know how to use this effectively and not over use it;
- You definately won’t have this forever but……..another 17 months or so is a long time to wait ……please seek out treatment for this. Resources to consider.
Hope this helps, Dr. I
