LOWER LID MUSCLES NOT OPERATING AFTER HYALURONIDASE

Customer Question
INJECTIONS! For 7+ yrs I...
LOWER LID MUSCLES NOT OPERATING AFTER HYALURONIDASE INJECTIONS! For 7+ yrs I had an almond size swollen area under my left eye. I've never had filler above my cheeks. I saw Tufts Dr who felt past filler may have migrated to lower lid & Hyaluronidase might help. I read about Hyaluronidase & agreed we should try. He injected both deeply & superficially. On the 1st deep injection in outer lower lid, I had strong ricocheting sensations that traveled to front of my ear & down my face to corner of lip. It felt like little lightening bolts under skin. Post injections, I am unable to move lower lid/upper cheek, the area seems to be paralyzed.There is a gap in the outer corner of my eye exposing too much white & is visible even when eye is closed. My left lid and cheek are very saggy now. Least of my worry but almond size lump still remains. Dr believes its fat. I'm so worried about current muscle paralysis. Looks as though I had a stroke on left side of face. No change after*****says lets wait 3 months & see if it gets better. I fear this is permanent. Advice please?

can you upload a clear photo of your face and eyes so I can see the area?

are you able to close your eyes fully?

No, small swelling under eye had been there for 7 yr. I saw Oculoplastic Dr at Tufts to address the swelling & was injected w/ Hyal 3 weeks ago. Ability to move lower lid/upper cheek happened shortly after injections.
But honestly I don't want to waste your time or mine, or my $. I think it's best I speak to a doctor in the plastics and aesthetic field.
