Ask an Eye Doctor and Get an Answer ASAP
Hi Dr. Rick, i am in Australia and 8 weeks ago, for the first time, had a small amount of Restylane side of both eyes and 1/2 syringe of voluma in each side/ upper cheek. ( i think it is called juvaderm plus in some countries) i had alot of bruising around eyes and cheek which took 2 weeks of Arnica to go. By 3weeks i still had huge bags of fluid under my eyes and some product. I didn't have any filler injected in the tear trough area, just side of outer corners and cheeks. I told the Doctor, who is well respected that i had thyroid cancer 2yrs ago and had 15 lymph nodes removed in my neck before he did any injections. As my swelling wouldn't go down and he could see product under eyes, he thought my lymph system was restricted and dissolved eyes and cheeks with hylaronidase. I had two black eyes and cheeks from the dissolving, so again, over 2 weeks for that bruising to go. It's been 3 weeks since bruising has gone and im still left with fluid bags, not as big as they were when i had the filler, but they are not going down. The doctor thinks it may take a few months for my lymph system to drain due to all the bruising and swelling over the past weeks. I am having lymph drainage massage, but only a small change. The doctor said that there is nothing more he can do, but only time. Please can you give me your opinion. Also i had a large amount of hylaronidase injected under both eyes and there is no more product left, just fluid. Thanks, Lynette
I don't have any other symptoms like itching, just fluid bags, which are a little less under outer corner of eye today after another lymph massage, but still under eyes and always worse in the morning. I take thyroxine thyroid replacement and i am kept TSH suppressed to keep away my cancer. I do have mild hayfever, but it has never caused puffy eyes. I take symbicort inhaler for asthma and micardis for boarder line blood pressure.
Sorry, but i don't have a camera or mobile phone that takes pictures, so any info you can give would be a help.
Thanks, XXXXX XXXXX only a few times with the hot compress, but it seemed to make the swelling bigger, so i went back to ice in the morning for a few minutes on each eye as it's worse when i wake up. I will try hot compress again, do you think twice a day would be enough? and should i follow with cold? also would you expect it to settle within 3 months?
