Your Cosmetic Surgeon’s Specialty Is Not In Facial Fillers? Beware!

Just like any other cosmetic procedure, facial fillers have their own fair share of disappointments. These fillers are mainly used to reduce wrinkles and revitalize your skin. Unfortunately, a fraction of the patients do not get the expected results, which is nerve-wrecking, especially after investing so much money. Cosmetic surgeons are skilled in different fields and others are more experienced than others are.

Therefore, you may hire an experienced surgeon who is excellent in liposuction, but not well versed in doing fillers. This will clearly lead to a disaster. Here are some of the disasters that we at Cosmetic Skin and Surgery, avoid at all costs by appointing a qualified cosmetic surgeon, whose specialty is in facial fillers to help you.

1. Injecting the wrong vein

There have been several cases where patients undergoing cosmetic procedures such as facial fillers are injected in the wrong areas. For instance, if you hit a vein while injecting filler around your eye, the areas will not only bruise, but your eye will have a burning sensation and in severe cases, you may develop flu-like symptoms, vomiting and diarrhea. Some people even have problems with their eyesight.

2. Cheap injections

When the deal is too good, you should always question it. Most of these procedures no matter how carefully manufactured and administered carry some health risk. Therefore, imagine the kind of serious problems that will occur after being injected cheap injections from practitioners who are not certified in this field. Side effects include swelling of the face and your lips become lumpy, which is quite uncomfortable.


3. Injecting too close to the skin surface

This is less damaging, but still an upsetting result called the Tyndall Effect. It happens when facial fillers made from hyaluronic acid are injected too close to the surface of the skin. Since this acid reflects light on a certain spectrum, it produces a translucent blue discoloration on your skin. Not so fluttering is it?

4. Permanent fillers can shift from its injection site

Yes, this can happen. Permanent fillers do shift to other parts of the body. The main symptom is swelling on the forehead that looks lumpy. The lumps are caused by body reactions that are attempting to get rid of the ‘foreign body’. Apart from the painful reactions that take weeks to treat, your face will look uneven due to the swelling; something you do not want to experience.
