Bad experience with Restylane under eyes

Postby Heatherrose » Thu Feb 23, 2017 6:12 pm

After a few years of researching about getting filler under the eyes (for eye troughs), I finally decided to take the plunge. I decided that the best type of doctor to see would be a doctor who specializes in eyes, so I went to a doctor who advertises as an oculoplastic surgeon. He has over 100 positive reviews on realself and is located in a suburb of NYC. I am so sad about the results. The eye troughs look worse after the Restylane. The area under the eye troughs bulges out where the injections were placed. I look awful. I feel like a fool for believing the positive reviews, and now realize that most of them were fake (hardly any of them have photos). I am not sure what to do now (go to someone else to fix it or let it wear off and just live with it). I would never go back to this doctor.

I wonder if it was the same guy I used...he also had a huge number of 5star reviews on real self and is in a suburb of NYC and is an occuloplastic surgeon. In any case, I had the same fear as you with the lumps, bumps, bruises under my eye. I was really nervous because it seemed like I developed a hard lump in the tear trough a week after the injection! By 2 weeks out, the swelling, lumps and bumps had settled. How long ago did you get the injections?
