Serious complications are rare, but it's vital you seek urgent review if anything like this occurs: Swelling, puffiness or lumpiness which does not fade in the first week with a gentle massage. The filler changes texture and becomes hard, nodular or lumpy, especially if there is redness or tenderness after 48 hours. All these symptoms may indicate a need for medical assistance from your clinician or family doctor if you are unable to see us, but please contact us so we can advise.
IMPORTANT: Contact us immediately if you have symptoms of a blocked blood vessel.
If you develop increasing pain near or above the site of injection which is getting worse over time, especially if associated with a pale area of skin indicating a lack of blood flow, you should contact us immediately. In rare cases, an urgent reversal or other medical interventions may be required immediately to prevent scarring. If we unreachable, please go to your nearest ER. Please contact us as soon as possible so we can collaborate and advise any other clinicians involved in your care.
