What to Do If You Don't Like Your Filler Results?

Let's say you have a lip augmentation that you have been thinking about for a long time. But what if you are not satisfied with the result.

The subject is not just lip filler, in fact, all kinds of fillers can be included in this subject. We asked the experts of the subject and discussed the answer to the question of what should we do if we were not satisfied with the filler results:

It Is Also Necessary To Be A Master In Light, Shadow, Proportion and Perspective.

percent golden ratioMedical Pysician Gokce Haspolat MD: “The result of any filler procedure depends on the person who injects the filler, rather than the filler itself.

Every doctor can prick the face, perform the injection, but in my opinion, experts in this field are both scientists and artists. Because it is not enough to grasp the unique features of countless hyaluronic acid (HA) gels and to have a good grasp of the anatomical details of the human face, it is also necessary to be a master in light, shadow, proportion and perspective.

In the absence of this dominance, most of the time the results do not match the expectations. The filler may be overused or placed incorrectly.

Those who have had fillers before may have experienced bruising, swelling, lumps or asymmetry. Some unlucky patients may even suffer more unusual and troubling complications, such as vascular occlusion or permanent nodules.

All of these are reasons for regret for the patient. If there is any issue that bothers you after the filler, you should immediately call your doctor who performed the treatment.

Because your doctor should guide you not only during the treatment but also during the post-treatment period. Ideally, it will inform you of what to expect after injections.”

What Can Happen After Filler?

after fillerMedical Pysician Sule Sakrak MD: “I can summarize the possibilities after filler as follows:

  • For the first few days after the filler, there may be some swelling, bruising, pain, but this is not severe or acute pain.

  • It is normal to have small lumps or bruises in the treated area.

  • These harmless side effects usually go away on their own within a week or two.

  • However, some forms of discoloration and discomfort may indicate an atherosclerosis or clogged blood vessel that needs urgent care.

  • If there is sharp and surprising-looking pain accompanied by lilac to purple and white-spotted bruising, your doctor should be consulted immediately as the concern here may be a vascular condition.

There is some swelling after any injection, but this is especially true for HA fillers because they can absorb up to 1,000 times their weight in water.

Since swelling can temporarily change the contours of the face and create asymmetries, you cannot evaluate the aesthetic results of the filler in a few days.

For example, if one side of your jawline is initially more absent than the other, it actually means you have a greater degree of bone loss or fat atrophy. Your doctor will apply more filler to ensure symmetry here.

As such, this can result in further swelling or bruising. It literally takes 1-2 weeks for it to sit on your face. Do not be unhappy with the results in the early stage, be patient.

If there are still problems afterward, as I said, call your doctor and ask him or her to evaluate.”

Explain To Your Doctor Exactly What Is Bothering You

explain to your doctor exactly what is bothering youMedical Pysician Sevgi Ekiyor MD: “If you're unsure or panicking about how your filler looks or feels, yes it's a good idea to call your doctor. But first, you should know what exactly is bothering you.

Are you swollen? Are there any lumps? Is it disproportionate? Does your mouth look funny while you are speaking? Use firm language to express your dissatisfaction with your doctor.

For example, if the problem is pain: Is your face sensitive only to the touch, or are we talking about relentless suffering? If there is a lump, where is it? Can you see it or can you just feel it?
Sevgi Ekiyor, MD whatsappAfter reporting your complaints and ruling out serious complications, your doctor may have some questions for you. It is evaluated together and everything that can be done is tried to be resolved.

I always tell my patients the following after filler. Avoid salty foods, alcohol, strenuous exercise for a while, all of which are triggers that can exacerbate swelling and bruising.

Do not massage the face, if you are sleeping on your stomach, make sure that it does not compress the padding. And especially at the time of COVID-19, it matters whether you've recently been sick or have had a vaccine or had other medical procedures that could trigger inflammation.

Use Videos to Help You Communicate Your Concerns

video Medical Pysician Nedim Budakoglu MD: “Most of the time, doctors ask for photos or videos so that they can really see the post-filler problems you describe.

If you think your expressions look weird, you can shoot a video to give the most accurate feel of how you look while animating or speaking.

Wait At least Two Weeks Before Changing Your Filler

dermal fillerI recommend waiting until two to three weeks after your first appointment. Except, of course, in emergencies. During this time, the filler spreads and integrates into the skin or fat and soft tissue on the bone between your own collagen fibers.

But this is not a predictable process. Each area or plane of the face has its own layout. I give my patients an overall idea of ​​what to expect, but of course every individual experience is different.

If you are still unhappy at this point, your doctor may add or remove fillers from your face to help resolve your particular issue.

If you think you are overfiller or have too much HA at a certain point, your doctor may partially dissolve the filler with a small amount of hyaluronidase.

If symmetry is the problem, if there is an unevenness between the two sides of your face, fillers or solvents can be used to restore balance.

As a result, whether you're aiming for full-face rejuvenation or single feature optimization, getting fillers done gradually, gradually, over time, will provide the safest and most natural effect.

And finding a doctor who follows this philosophy will ensure you don't regret fillers."
